I am currently on lesson 8 on the German 3 level and the lecture video cut off before finishing the explanation of the sentence, "Ich fliege denach nach Hause." I wasn't sure if anyone reported this yet, but wanted to bring it to the Fluenz team's attention. Edit: The video did explain a part of the sentence earlier, but it cut off so quickly I thought it might be a bug

Has anyone else noticed that the date math in the dialogue is wrong? Today is April 30th according to the dialogue, but then May 8th is a Friday. However, since April only has 30 days, May 8th should be a Thursday. It seems like the person that wrote the dialogue thought that April has 31 days.

For the flash card: "Hi Julia. How are you(i)?" the only accepted answer is "Hallo Julia. Wie geht's?" I believe that "Hallo Julia. Wie geht's dir?" should also be acceptable.

In the "Write the phrase you read" section: The answer to "Can I leave me car here?" is shown as "Kann ich mein Auto hier lassen?" But should this not be "Kann ich hier mein Auto lassen?" as time, manner and place are supposed to come before the direct object noun. For the next phrase "Can I leave me car on the parking lot?" the answer is shown as "Kann ich auf dem Parkplatz mein Auto lassen?" which does put the direct object noun after the place.

In the Repeat the phrases section of German 2, session 22, there is the sentence "Der nette Mann im Auto hat keinen Führerschein." However, we haven't encountered the adjective "nett" for "nice" yet in German 1 or 2. I'm guessing it is coming up soon due to Sonia's closing statement about lots of adjectives coming up. =)

There are two small typos in German 2, Session 15 in "Write the phrase you read". In two different phrases, the first 'h' is missing from "Toothbrush": I use a red tootbrush I use a red tootbrush and white toothpaste

In the Repeat the Words section one of the phrases was: Der heißere Sommer - The hotter summer I understand the adjective heißer ending in e here as the article Der indicates the noun gender (M). Out of curiosity I wanted to check my understanding of adjective endings when the article is indefinite. In this case I believe that the adjective has to carry the mark of the nouns gender so I expected: A hotter summer -> Ein heißerer Sommer But when I entered that phrase in both Google Translator and Microsoft Translator I got two different answers neither using heißerer Microsoft: Einen heißeren Sommer Google: Ein heißer Sommer What is the correct translation?

There is a typo in the match phrases of this section (German 2, section 17): "Müssen wir Bier mibringen?" Instead of "Müssen wir Bier mitbringen?"

RE: "write the phrase you read" exercise in German level 5, session 12. The English is: "We had an emergency in the family and I couldn’t go to the meeting" The German is given as: "Wir hatten einen Notfall in der Familie und ich konnte nicht zum Treffen gehen." Have we learned konnten, the imperfekt form of können? I don't believe so. You taught us waren and hatten, but I don't remember learning konnten.

Another case where the program should probably accept multiple word orders. Level 4, Section 20, Write the phrase you read Phrase: Does she know at what time your(i/p) parents are coming back from Turkey on Saturday? Only accepted answer: Weiß sie, um wie viel Uhr eure Eltern am Samstag aus der Türkei zurückkommen? I belive the following should be acceptable: Weiß sie, um wie viel Uhr am Samstag eure Eltern aus der Türkei zurückkommen? Similar issue with phrase: Does your(i) sister know at what time your(I/p) parents are coming back from Turkey on Wednesday? Accepted: Weiß deine Schwester, um wie viel Uhr eure Eltern am Mittwoch aus der Türkei zurückkommen? Should also accept: Weiß deine Schwester, um wie viel Uhr am Mittwoch eure Eltern aus der Türkei zurückkommen?
