2 Rosetta Stone
Germany has a magnanimous history. After watching some powerful documentaries on Germany and Hitler, it is rather astounding that the country, having fought world wars, has a powerful economy- standing taller than ever! The above colleges and universities that I suggested would require your dedicated time and energy and may not be suitable for you in case you are working and you are planning to learn German on a part-time basis. However, if you go for Multibhashi or any other app-based online learning then you can continue learning German from anywhere and anytime. Needless to say, the fee will also differ accordingly.
