German is definitely one of the most popular languages in the world. There’s a whole bunch of benefits to knowing German. Let me just mention a few.

The language I use is simple and should be easily understood by absolute beginners.
This course is divided into 16 sections, each of them covering a broad topic subdivided into lectures. The pace is up to you, you can go through the easier parts faster and then take more time to study the more sophisticated ones.
To help you memorize and practice all the new stuff, there are loads of exercises. Most lectures are accompanied by additional resources. These are downloadable files with written and audio exercises (with key). There also files with vocabulary and, first of all, the main text file containing the material covered in the lecture video. This written material is much more detailed and extended than what you can find in the video.
After you finish each section, there’s a quiz for you that covers the material discussed in that section.
