German with stories

What will happen next?

You’re now subscribed to the Learn German with Stories newsletter and will receive a new short story every month. If you find this first story difficult to read, don’t worry. We’ll alternate between stories for beginners and intermediate learners. As a beginner, you can save the intermediate stories on your device and get back to them later. 

In addition to the monthly short stories, we normally send a regular newsletter every two weeks and you may hear from us more often when a new book is released. As a subscriber, you will be able to purchase all new releases for a special introductory price and just for a short period of time, so stay tuned.
