3rd language learned

I have used MT for French, Spanish and now German.
It is fantastic.
This version has flash cards which are extremely helpful. But the conversational method of learning that ties the languages together, gives you immediate results.

I have the Russian and Greek language apps and they are excellent because they use native speakers. This app, however, does NOT use a native speaker. It's the same guy who teaches the french and Italian languages. I can't understand what he says in German OR English. Don't waste your money on this if you want to sound even remotely like a German native. I wish I could get my money back!

Speak German in hours!

I first tried the MT Japanese first, then the MT Arabic, then the MT Russian course. All these 'hard' languages became ever so easy with this method. I highly recommend it!!
