Thank you! Also, there is a German II course starting in several weeks on the same site. :)
Danke! I just joined the course - hope I can do well! (And have a lingot for telling us about it!)
Thank you. I think you'll do well in the course, this is the first time I've seen the German Course offered on futurelearn. I've taken several of their other language offerings and been impressed. :)
(chuckle) if working will help me do well, then I'm going to do fine. I spent some hours on FutureLearn last night doing some "catch up" (because the course had already started) - and will be spending relatively more time there versus on Duo for the next few weeks, because I definitely learned a lot there and my focus is on learning. I'm plugging along rather rushing to catch up (made it up to lesson 1.14), which is just my style I guess. I'm very glad you mentioned this course!
Off-topic, but you've got an impressive list of flags and levels. I hope I get to those levels someday!
Somehow, I meant to post the class info last week, and then realized I had not....what's nice about FutureLearn is that you can go at your own pace. If you're interested in the German II course, you can go to the course, register interest, and they'll send you a reminder when it begins. Thanks for your kind remarks. :)
I learned on futurelearn Italian through English. Good experience... especially in the forum... I felt member of universal class because people from all over the world wrote thoughts and experiences from his countries
Glad to hear you had a good experience with Futurelearn for the Italian course. I've been been impressed with the Futurelearn language learning experience. :)
Thank you very much for this info! :) It is great additional resource and i plan to use it :)
Glad to see you plan to sign up. You may be interested in the Futurelearn German II course starting in a few weeks (I don't know the specific date). If you look in the course listings in the Language section of Futurelearn, you can express interest in the course (near the bottom of the language info) and they send an email when its available. Happy learning! :)
