I'm just wondering how much the class will end up learning - or whether they will mostly be having a good time.

"Sangat bagus" - Quite good as they say in Malay.

From the Malaysian chap with the Dutch surname, who teaches English.

Henning is a genius - can't explain why but all these videos had me laughing very hard. Keep him on your radio 4 panel shows:)

Sehr lustig, besonders das Kinderlied. In Deutschland wird es etwas anders gesungen, aber nicht schlecht.

Extremely cool site!

This below, copied from a German eBay-transaction, demonstrates quite well the "importance" of the "Umlaute":

"Der Wagen steht in D 29633 Munster, nicht in Münster, nein, in Munster!
Leute,macht euch die Mühe und guckt bei Google-Maps rein, zwischen den beiden Orten bzw. den beiden Pünktchen auf dem "u" sind real ca. 400 Km zu fahren. Also mal eben schnell aus dem Ruhrgebiet herfahren und 20 min später wieder zu Hause sein ist nicht!"
