I agree. This is not what I'd call an inexpensive deal, though, but I still like it. The Signum program is a luxury item - maybe the price of a lower-end Cartier watch. And I think it's worth it. I, too, learned Modern German - many years ago in school, and more recently went through a couple of books and a whole bunch of free* lectures on Anglo-Saxon. I was surprised to see so much correlation in vocabulary between the two. The modern language helps a lot in learning the older one. I've seen a page or two of Gothic and I think Modern German would help somewhat there, too - but not as much. Any Germanic roots you can get come in handy for Scandinavian languages of course. And Dutch. Old Norse, too, and Icelandic, both of which might be important at Signum. * The lectures were put up on YouTube - so I made use of them. They were originally made for one of the big Course Companies - The Great Courses etc. by a professor who - you guessed it - teaches for Signum. (He also has a day-gig at an RA College). He's a terrific instructor - his name is Michael Drout. If his work is a sample of what you get at Signum - then it's pretty darn good.
