Guidance

Learning a language is not a linear process.

Sometimes you feel like you’re improving a lot, then one bad experience can make you feel like you’re not getting anywhere.

The trick is not to let this discourage you. If you stick with the program, you WILL make tremendous progress.

In the challenge, you will have access to a community of other challenge participants, Anja and other German teachers who will answer your questions.

You will also get support from a group of other passionate German learners, who are more or less at the same level, who have the same interests, who go through the same struggles and victories as you do.

This way you keep yourself on track and accountable and you stick with it during the 10 weeks.

Here’s an overview of everybody who plays a role in this series:

Who do you recognize in the picture?

Let’s be honest, German grammar can be a real killer ☠️

Wie traurig – How sad 😞 You’ve learned some German and you finally get the chance to talk to a native German speaker.

Now it’s time to make a good impression. So you gather your courage, open your mouth and…. NOTHING comes out.

I mean, complete silence. You just get stuck with some crazy verb conjugation or a German case that doesn’t seem to make any sense at all.

It almost feels like you’re trying to solve some impossible mathematical equation.

That’s a pity because you know that speaking German fluently could change your life, right?

What if you could speak German?

Imagine that in 10 weeks from now, less than 3 months, you will have learned so much German that you can:

  • Go to Germany, step off the plane ✈️ or the train 🚋…
  • and you can converse comfortably with Germans in most of the situations you end up in that day.
  • You ask for directions to a local “Berliner” 🙋‍♀️
  • You buy train tickets, all in German
  • You arrive at your new apartment 🏠, introduce yourself 💁🏽‍, and instantly make new friends 👬.
  • You go grocery shopping 🥨.

In all these situations, you can hold your ground in a real-life conversation in German.

Not without mistakes, of course.

But you know what to expect and what to say, and you understand what others are saying to you.

You can focus on exploring a new country, making friends, and having actual conversations with them, instead of constantly worrying about grammar.

You won’t feel clumsy and you won’t have to translate in your head anymore.

Imagine being able to achieve all this without boring text books and having to learn lots of grammar rules by heart?

Wouldn’t that be cool?

Well, it’s possible, here’s how:

The 4M-Formula in our German Academy… what you need to become fluent in German:

With this system, you WILL speak German!

How do we know?

Because we’ve had thousands of students learn German with us in the past few years.

Here is what Jen says, for example:

Join the German Online Academy 2.0!

Anja has partnered up with some of the most popular German content creators to give you a super fun video series. It’s perfect for German language learners like you.

Over the course of 10 weeks you’ll learn everything you need to reach your next level in German.

How does the program work?

Stop wasting hours wondering what you should do next to improve your German. Instead learn with real-life conversations…

Here is our concept:

✅ You follow a step-by-step online study program with multiple weekly lessons (all tied together as an entertaining story).

✅ At the same time, you also learn all the foundations of German grammar that you need to start holding native-sounding conversations.

✅ In 10 weeks you wrap up the challenge. You will now be able to use your new German skills in conversations with native speakers.

Who is this for?

For beginners & upper beginners?

YES

The challenge is perfect for beginners and intermediates who want to improve their German and take it to the next level. You get all the dialogues you need to have a conversation in German + grammar explanations and exercises for whatever level you choose.

For advanced students?

YES

If you are at an advanced level, you can choose the B1 course.

However, if you have never learned with chunks before and want to brush up on all your basics (there’s TONS of content in here) we suggest that you choose A1 or A2. In the past, there were many students go from B1 back to A2 or even A1 beginner dialogues to learn the chunks from the more “foundational” situations covered in this course.

For very advanced students?

NO

If you are at a very advanced level (C2) already, then the learning materials are probably too easy for you.
