Fun with German

Sam is having a great time learning German with Melanie. She makes it very fun and engaging for his age(10yrs). He looks forward to his lesson each week. He really seems to be picking it up nicely and is not intimidated with the learning. It's fun to hear him speaking the language during his lesson.
