It is best way to be comfortable with German and learn while listening.

I am a language teacher myself and from my experience the best way to learn is through pleasant emotions and a love for the language. Every time I hear the CBG music theme as well as the voices of Mark, Andrea, Julia, Thomas and Kerstin, I am filled with enthusiasm and desire to keep learning.

My wife is German and my children have been raised bilingual. I’ve developed a basic understanding of German just from exposure around the home. Recently, I decided to become fluent in German. My current level is A2 per a Goethe Institut test. I’ve been looking for as many resources as possible...Read full review »

I have been listening from season 1 for over a month and already I can understand many words I hear! The hosts are charming and explain everything very simply. I will definitely be a long-time listener!

I’ve listened to heaps and this one is the best by far! I struggle with the different cases and verb placement in the German language not to mention word order... Mark has a calm easy to listen to voice and Andrea has an excellent way of explaining. Thank you for your efforts, they are very much...Read full review »

I checked this out years ago, but was very discouraged because the native speaker speaks so quickly. And never seems to have a mode where he will enunciate clearly and slow the speech down. So that learners can understand what the heck the words are. Native speed is fine if you understand what...Read full review »

CBG is an absolutely fantastic German learning resource! The pacing is great and the explanations are clear and helpful. My German has been improving at an incredible pace - and finally I can really understand how the grammar functions! Even if you’ve been studying German for a little while I...Read full review »

May be you do not know when you start and you do not feel the improvement but it is really amazing how much you will learn if you hear this podcast consistently!! Thanks Mark

Really glad I’ve found this - it’s the perfect complement to other forms of learning. I find duolingo/Babbel really useful for vocab but can never remember the grammar rules... enter coffee break German! It’s much easier when you can actually hear someone explain it :) thanks guys!

Love this podcast so much, it’s so helpful, I’ve been raving about it to all who will listen. I love listening to Mark and Andrea, they make a great duo and make the lessons really fun and engaging.

dudonetto via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 03/02/21
I enjoy this series very much. They make each episode fun and interesting and explain difficult concepts in a way that makes sense. So great to have native speakers interacting with the presenter. 😀😀

The best podcast ever. Conversational, fresh, relevant, and funny too. Highly recommended. 6 stars

Y’all are descendants of the kingdom of Valhalla Guardians of the muttersprache, I have lingered and languished in the purgatory that is German grammar until these deities graced my podcast feed with their consul and intelligence.
Joe Alaimo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/22/21
I decided to learn German language after two series I can see progress. Thanks
Timo_KE_GT via Apple Podcasts · Slovakia · 01/20/21
Super! Toll! This podcast is excellent. The German is slow and clear. The explanations and dissection of each sentence are very helpful. I’m looking forward to listening to the rest of the episodes.

Absolutely love this! His translations were especially useful! One example is, when he said "mir geht es gut." For so long i never really understood it even though i understand cases and i know what it means. The keyword he said was "Its going well FOR me." Most people just say...Read full review »

Wonderful perspectives from Both an English learner and a Swiss German speaker. They have a lot of fun while pointing out key words and phrases you may not usually see, and do a wonderful job explaining the workings of different grammar rules. I have studied German for 5 years and still find new...Read full review »

I really like how you explain the language, I’m a Spanish speaker but can perfectly understand what you’re explaining. Vienen Dank!!!

I’ve been listening for a year and love it but there’s TOO much English! Speak more German please
gballesteros via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/20
I started teaching myself German using Duolingo and Babbel about a year ago, but Coffee Break German REALLY helps me with the grammar, and subtle nuances. The hosts are funny and clear. The beginning of the second season is my favorite (it emphasizes grammar). The cultural units were also helpful...Read full review »

Being an expat in Germany is quite daunting... I found this amazing podcast and not only my skills are improving - my confidence is as well!

I love the way this podcast has been developed. I am benefiting from Mark’s detailed breakdown to ensure he fully understands what is being said. His dynamic with Thomas is impactful. And the grammar guru makes grammar engaging!!!! Great job Don - Brighton

Honestly, I tried many different podcasts and there was always something missing. This podcast covers it all, from grammar to culture. Their format is easy to follow and great for progression.

Zuerst, Coffee Break German hat mir viele geholfen. Ich konnte Deutsche sprechen, bevor ich tatsächlich auch eine Unterrichtet lernen. Ich gehe zum class jetzt und dazwischen höre ich Coffee Break German, im mein Deutsch wissen zu besser machen. Und Ich vermisse Thomas sehr. Lots of love, Nabanita

Especially a good daily practice for people who learn German at around A2-B1 level. I like the interaction between Mark and Andreas.

Such an amazing way to learn daily. I’m so glad I found you!! Thank you for this awesome work you do.
cotigairejan via Apple Podcasts · Argentina · 06/17/20
I used to listen to this podcast about 3 years ago. Although English was used a lot in the first few lessons, I found it easy to follow and learn. Now, wanting to start over, I find most of the conversation is in German that’s too fast for me. I think I’ll try to find an app.
