List of recommendable language magazines

Out of the many publishing programs we selected the products of the German Spotlight-Verlag, because we received many positive reader feedbacks. In addition to the learning support for each article and specific grammatical topics, the relevance, informative content and content variety are particularly praised.
Note: In the products of  "Spotlight" the explanatory texts and references are in German language. They are therefore primarily addressed to German native speakers. Only the magazine "German Perfekt" is made for readers whose mother tongue is not German ;-).
