Take your German to the next level
by joining the GWS Club
Being a language learner myself, I’ve experimented with all kind of things, from traditional textbooks to expensive video courses. From studying on my own to learning 1:1 with a teacher. I ended up liking membership sites with different kinds of content and find them most useful and best value for money because new content is added regularly and there are normally various membership options I can choose from and switch between, depending on how much time I want to spend on language learning in a certain month. Well, this is exactly what the German with Stories Club is like and I’m really looking forward to welcoming you in our member area.
