Hello Nathalie: there seem to be quite a few anomalies in the sections on verbs/action words. These may be simply editing oversights; if so, perhaps you can bring them to the team's attention before the next update. Here are some examples: 4.2, Test your german skills: infinitive for to rain in quiz section is given as "reg[color=darkblue:1inoocvx]en[/color:1inoocvx]"; answer for "it's raining" is given as es reg[color=darkblue:1inoocvx]ent[/color:1inoocvx]. 5.2, Table lists "You need (polite)" as Sie brauch-[color=darkblue:1inoocvx]t[/color:1inoocvx] 5.2. Test skills, # 20 is listed as "I need you." Answer is given as "I don't need you." Test skills, #10, answer for "She doesn't need......" is given as "Sie brauch[color=darkblue:1inoocvx]en[/color:1inoocvx] kein...." Also, in a couple of places there are missing umlauts. For example third person singular "fahrt" and "backt". Hope these comments help you all to clarify the next edition. Overall, I am finding RocketGerman quite useful. I lost all my foreign languages overnight about a year ago when my Beloved died suddenly, and I hoped a basic course like this would prompt a return of the German to my memory. That didn't happen but at least this is an easy way to re-learn! Do you also have courses in French and Italian? I am hoping to tackle these after my German gets better. (As a schoolgirl it seemed easy to learn three languages at the same time, but at sixty that definitely doesn't work.). Regards, Caroline

Hi Caroline, thanks for bringing that to my attention. I will forward it to our German development team. We are currently adding audio to the grammar lessons and will send them out soon (including the corrections). I hope you enjoy re-learning German and yes, we do offer French and Italian courses as well. Let me know if you would like to have the free 6 Day Courses for Rocket French or Rocket Italian. All the best for your German learning!

Hi, Nathalie: Thank you for such a speedy response. It's good news about the addition of audio to the grammar. I'm sure we will all benefit from this. I shall sign up for the Italian course when I have made a little more progress with my German. I shall be going to Berlin and Munchen later this year, but I hope to be back in Florence in 2009, so I have a little longer to prepare the Italian. Thanks again for your help. Regards, Caroline
