Sometimes this is just because of how it sounds in English, particularly with words involving -fahrt or -fach. When I […]

    How to practice speaking German online with joy

    Finally, learning German online is becoming the gold standard in language education. It simply doesn’t make any sense to travel 30 minutes to a physical location and share a room with 10-20 other people that are so fundamentally different in their learning preferences.  But German learners often ask me how they would practice speaking German […]
