WHY LEARNING GERMAN WITH SERIES WORKS?
You'll be able to learn vocabulary, practice your listening, improve your pronunciation, and learn new expressions in different contexts.
They're an excellent pedagogical strategy because while you're exposed to contents in the German language, you're also having fun and giving a boost to your learning process.
