Danke für all Euer Feedback

I get many comments on youtube of which all (non-troll) are just amazingly soothing. I would like to share them with you in this form. I went back approximately six month. Every feedback motivates me to improve my teaching and to create more material. So, keep it coming.

Thanks to all who have commented and who study or have studied with my videos. Without you my work would not be of any use. Ganz herzlichen Dank.

Endlich (At last)! Funny Germans tricking us into believing that, even if German is a bit trickier than it ought to be, we can crack it. And it seems to work – I’m a believer. I am just wondering whether the tango that plays under the closing credits (‘Pasional’) was chosen entirely at random, or from a deep German sense of irony? This is what the lyrics have to say to us, the German learning viewers: “… lo que es morir mil veces de ansiedad” – “… what it is to die a thousand times of anxiety” 😉

Thank you for your work – really. Thank you.

thank you so much for this, it helped a lot, other rules were hard to grasp, you cannot always think of everything when a word comes up while speaking, but these three mantras are amazing, very practical 🙂

Hello again. and what finely crafted wisdom do I impart today , this time on B1? None….just the usual, thanks for clear explanations, insights into the grammar  which I have yet to deal with in depth  and  the pleasant videos.  15 mins , the lot.

gda295 vor 2 Wochen

But I thought [dachte] that mein, dein etc were possessive adjectives [or pronouns] as in English. V good tips as usual.

great work and much [more] success. your mnemonic tips  even in one video point the right way to go… I have been struggling with a Linguaphone “complete”course” for YEARS ,  4 books , 15 cassettes… still explaining the case / article system half way through in a most laborious manner  with not ONE single mnemonic.  I did memorisation work however of the article/ case charts  and finally it is paying off GRAMMATICALLY but not when it comes to speaking it , even now! No wonder people give up…utmost perseverance with that course.

Great idea to remember what gender nouns are, but one small thing. “Wal” in English is spelled with an “H” (i.e. whale).

Are you going to be doing another one of these series? I really enjoyed watching the progress of Ewelina over the 14 days. I believe I remember you saying that you like to do another one of these series (if people were interested). I would love to be a part of that next project!

As someone who’s new to learning the language (by myself), I feel self-conscious (and might, at times, over-think) about how long/short my vowels are and if they’re long/short enough, so I appreciate your attention to that greatly. Thanks for sharing with us! 🙂

My beliefs are exactly the same. I was smitten too when I started learning German. Thoughts about how much there is to learn and where to begin from and how I am going to go about it made me so tired that I was feeling very lost. Your approach is also exactly the approach I was looking for too.

I never thought of emotion as an obstacle to overcome when trying to learn. It makes a lot of sense now that I think about it.
