What makes Lingvist’s German course so speziell?

  • custom course levels

    Lingvist analyzes your existing knowledge to place you at the right level. This means that you can get started with the course content that’s appropriate for your level right away.

  • remember what you learn

    Lingvist uses proven techniques inspired by cognitive theory, such as spaced repetition. This will help you easily remember the words you’ve learned when you need them. Long-term recall of new vocabulary is the key to speaking German more fluently.

  • learn die Grammatik on the go

    While many German words share common roots with their English cousins, German grammar has many features that are foreign to English speakers. Lingvist offers grammar tips on new concepts such as case and declension paired with the exercises you’re working on to keep grammar instruction relevant and interesting.

  • Listen and learn

    Lingvist provides plenty of opportunities to listen, not just read, reinforcing the German rules of pronunciation. Keep your headphones on to learn the sounds and intonational flow of German, then practice repeating the words.

  • speak with confidence

    While German is a relatively phonetic language, English speakers still need help pronouncing certain new sounds, such as “ß” and vowels with umlauts (“ä,” “ö,” “ü”). Lingvist has voice recognition technology specifically designed for learners, so you can practice new sounds and those incredibly long German words free from anxiety or embarrassment.

  • see and feel your progress

    Lingvist will keep track of what you’ve mastered, so that you can see your own progress. Watch the number of words you can actively recall grow in personalized stats as your German level advances.

Practice daily

Setting and achieving attainable goals, like 20 minutes of German practice per day, have also been shown to boost your overall mood! Within a few months, you’ll be amazed at the progress you’ve made.

Make it immersive

The best way to get comfortable with German is to try to switch your brain into “German mode” by creating an immersive German environment. Listen to German radio while making dinner or German podcasts during your commute.

Remember why you started

Remembering why you decided to start this journey will help you establish sustainable learning habits. If you feel a dip in motivation, return to that initial reason to refocus your priorities.
