  • You don’t need to know any German to succeed with 3 Minute German.

Have you ever tried to learn German before and failed?

3 Minute German is like no other language course. The way this method works means you will succeed and be speaking German by the end of the first lesson.

“I’m not very good with languages”

I get told this all the time by new students who want to prepare me for how bad they are going to be at learning to speak German. No matter how bad you think you are with languages, no matter how bad you think your memory is, no matter how terrible you think you are at understanding German, you will be amazing with 3 Minute German.

The way the 3 Minute German course is set out means you cannot fail. You will be building sentences in a logical, step-by-step method, learning words and phrases that you will be able to use when you go on holiday to a German speaking country.

How does the method work?

I break down the German language into its smallest components and then I show you how to build it back up into sentences. You will get plenty of opportunity to practise with the language and you will be amazed at how quickly you make noticeable progress.

Can I really learn German in 3 minutes?

I called the course 3 Minute German because three minutes is the perfect amount of time you need to learn anything. I’ve kept each video to around three minutes so that you can watch at least one video per day no matter how busy you are. It is much better to study for three minutes every day than to study for an hour once a week. If you stick to three minute chunks, you will find wonderful things start to happen with your language learning:

1.       You’ll maintain your enthusiasm

If you want to learn anything, you have to maintain enthusiasm or else you won’t continue. If you limit your study time to just three minutes, you’ll keep German fresh and exciting and you’ll be eager to learn. If you spend hours studying, very quickly you’ll get bored with German and it’ll turn into a chore.


2.       You’ll study more consistently

It’s much better to study for just three minutes once a day than to study for three hours once a week. A spare three minutes is relatively easy to find even in the most hectic of schedules. If you make sure you complete at least one three-minute study session every day, it’ll quickly become a habit that you’ll do without thinking. It’s much easier to fit in a daily three-minute habit than a weekly one hour habit. By doing this, you’ll become a much more consistent learner, and consistency is the key to success.


3.       You’ll remember things better

This is my favourite reason as to why you should limit your study to just three minute chunks. If you study something for just three minutes every day, you’ll trick your brain into memorising the information more quickly than if it were to see the information for hours each day. It’ll think, “I see this information every day so it must be important, but I don’t see it for very long so I’d better hold onto it and make it into a memory fast!” You’ll be amazed at how much more easily things tend to stay in your brain if you limit yourself to just three minutes a day.

Sign up now and start speaking right away!

So, if you want to learn to speak German quickly and with a simple method that you can use even if you have no free time at all, then give 3 Minute German a go and you’ll be very pleased you did.

This is the first course in the 3 Minute German series, and it contains nine lessons broken down into three minute chunks. If you would like to try the course before you buy it, I have made a free taster course that contains the first three lessons. You can find this either by looking at my Udemy page or by visiting my website. Once you have completed this course, if you want to progress further, you can find “3 Minute German – Course 2” to learn even more German!

Danke sehr (thank you very much)

Hola, bonjour, olá, hallo and ciao!

I’m Kieran and I run 3 Minute Languages. 3 Minute Languages creates online courses, books and other materials to make language learning accessible to all. You can learn to speak French, Spanish, German, Italian or Portuguese.

The 3 Minute Languages books and online courses are based on the methodology I developed for teaching languages, which I've been using in all my classes for many years. The methodology will get you speaking quickly, without the struggle normally associated with language learning.

If you've ever struggled with learning a language in the past, then please give one of the 3 Minute Languages courses a go; you'll find it really simple and fun to use!

We are all human beings, which means we all possess the attributes that make us human beings. There's a wonderful quote by a man called Terence:

“I am human, and nothing that is human is alien to me”

What it means is that if one person is capable of something, then we are all capable of it, because we’re all humans too. There's nothing in the world that I cannot understand if somebody before me has succeeded in understanding it. Therefore, it’s only logical that since there are millions of people in the world who have managed to learn to speak a second language, then you can learn it too!  And I'll show you how...
