How is this course different from other courses?
Most German courses or textbooks cover many topics, but not always in great detail. Normally, there is a tutor to explain more. That can be a problem for those who are teaching themselves as they might not have anybody to explain further.
My courses are in depth, easy to understand and come with worksheets, quizzes, assignments to help you practice what you have learned.
