Publish percentages for each unit please

I've noticed that some units, regardless of level, are easier than others. I would like to focus on the units that I'm struggling with, but without writing down the number of the unit with a pad and pencil, I have no way of knowing which units those are! Since I do lessons whenever I have a minute h...

Re: German after 2 years

I read a lot of Comics fuer Erwachsene, like Schwermetall and various other books like Die Biene Maja, by Waldemar Bonsels, and graded readers. Finding books of an appropriate reading level can be challenging but its becoming less and less so as I'm reading more every day.

Re: German from English: Observations after 522 days

I like German culture a.) because my relatives moved to the US from Germany in the 1840s, so I have a historical connection b.) the German way of thinking is about 90% the same as English speakers, just the languages have diverged, and c.)

Re: German from English: Observations after 522 days

@boatswainsmate Despite I have no idea how it is to learn German as a second language, because I learnt it as my first, I can relate to a lot what you have written.

I'm looking at it an...
