Looking for a fun, inexpensive way to study German? Then German Review: For Beginners is for you!

Whether you are starting out with German or want a quick and easy way to review basic grammatical concepts that would be presented in an introductory German course, such as German Level 1, this app will help you achieve your goals.

Chapters can either be studied in sequence or individually, depending on the students’ level of comfort and previous knowledge. They are designed around Mia Haussmann, a German teenager from Berlin, and provide cultural information as students study items such as the alphabet, numbers, verb conjugations, cases, prepositions, and basic vocabulary.

This app includes 3+ hours of easy-to-follow audio lectures and numerous authentic images that will aid students in understanding the German language and its culture.

With the ability to pause lectures and examine images, in-depth learning has never been so convenient! The variety of flash cards and multiple-choice questions will help students review chapter materials and test their progress anywhere at any time.

German Review: For Beginners is the ideal app for students of all ages who want to learn German in a unique, mobile way!
