How to use this course

Thank you very much for choosing to study with us! We’ll do our best to make your language learning journey a successful one!

Dialogues are the heart of our courses. So how can you get the most out of them? We recommend firs listening to the dialogue without looking at the transcript and trying to understand as much as possible. This will be highly beneficial for your listening comprehension. Next, play the dialogue a second time and read along while it’s playing. If there is anything you don’t understand, you can look at the translation afterwards, but use it as little as possible and try to understand as much as you can from the context. Now, you can go through the section below the text and have a closer look at the text’s grammar. Afterwards, it’s time to study the new vocabulary. You’ll do this from Lesson 2 on where you’ll find further instructions.

What’s your level in German? Are you a complete beginner? Then just start with the lesson below. If you already have some knowledge [e. g. you know how to build the present forms of verbs for all persons (ich, du, er/sie/es, wir, ihr, sie) and you know the basic rules for building the plural forms of nouns], we recommend you start with Lesson 10 (introduction of the past tense). You might find some of the lessons easy, but just go over them for a quick review. If you don’t start from the beginning, please make sure to go to Lesson 2 and read “How to use Anki for Languages on Fire” before diving into the later lessons.  If you’re at an upper B1 level or higher, you shouldn’t do our basic course. Read this article on how you should continue studying instead.

We hope you have a great time and rapid progress while learning German! Let’s go!
