German courses: our principles

No matter which German course you choose: we stick to a few basic principles, which you will quickly find out if you download a preview of our German textbook, for example.

  1. German courses should be fun. Contrary to the usual language school marketing poetry, we don’t even try to talk you into nonsense like “learn German in three months”. Learning a language is hard work, but why should hard word not be fun? That’s why our German courses are based on a coherent story.
  2. We put a lot of emphasis on pronunciation. Whether you take a German online course alone or with a teacher, you’ll get plenty of tips on practicing proper pronunciation. There are also free pronunciation videos for our German textbook.
  3. Grammar is a tool – nothing more, but nothing less. We won’t drown you in grammar rules before you can even say your first complete sentence in German. But we don’t have a grammar phobia either (and if you do, we’ll train you out of it …).
