The secrets of learning German from English for beginners
Before I became a foreign language teacher myself, I had to learn the languages from the very beginning. I learned English, French and Spanish at High School and at language schools. When I was sitting in the classrooms or at home doing homework I often found it difficult to make sense of the new words and grammar that seemed to be from another planet. I felt overwhelmed. I had moments where I felt lost and just couldn't make sense of it what the teacher was trying to explain to me about that language. I felt that the way the teachers were teaching were not very effective, sometimes confusing and that it just took too much time and effort to finally see results. I was thinking that there had to be an easier way to learn a new language. I experienced that whenever I could make a connection to German - my mother tongue - I could understand and learn the new language much easier and faster (for example English and German words: brother - Bruder, house – Haus, cat – Katze, and so on). The teacher did not have to explain so much to me because it all came natural. But unfortunately the teachers rarely made use of it.
A few years later, when I started teaching German I noticed even more how similar English and German actually are. I realized that not just many words were similar but also many phrase structures. After doing some research I found out that around 50% of the English words are related to German and the word order has many similarities as well because both languages have the same roots since they belong to the Germanic language family. But the way we were supposed to teach German did rarely make use of what German has in common with English. Instead, the books taught vocabulary and grammar which were complicated and not so useful for typical real life situations with German speakers or for travelling. And being able to speak and communicate easily should be the final goal – not to make a rocket science out of it – I thought.
I noticed that many language learners don't want to lose endless hours on grammar theory and on memorizing hundreds or even thousands of words until they finally speak their target language. I personally would have loved a teacher who would've pointed out similarities first rather than starting out with what I don't know, struggling all the way and learning slowly. Imagine how motivating it is to first discover and use what you already know about German. In fact, many language learners - maybe you are one of them - want to be able to communicate in German as quickly as possible and start out with the basics that are important for communication in a German speaking environment.
So I finally came up with the idea to create a German learning method which takes advantage of what English speakers already know about German and activate this knowledge to make learning as natural and easy as possible for anyone who knows English. Combined with the 100 most frequently used German words it’s possible to create thousands of sentences in German without much effort – a powerful shortcut to the German language that can transform your English into German in 7 days or less!
"I would like to learn German but I heard it is too difficult and I don't have the time to spend endless hours on learning the grammar, memorizing all the new words and even do the pronunciation right."
- If that sounds familiar to you I can assure you that you are not the only one out there. In fact, learning German in a more easy and efficient way - avoiding the long, tough and painful path of learning the language is a desire which many language learners have.
Count yourself lucky - you as an English speaker have a surprising advantage. Since German and English have the same Germanic language roots it can be astonishingly fast and easy for you to learn basic German! It simply needs the right learning method to activate the German you already know from your English!
You will feel knowledgeable, competent and motivated using the basic German language by the end of the course . With a vocabulary of approx. 4414 German words and a careful selection of the most 100 frequently used German words in your memory it is possible to be able to string around 80.000 German phrases together and to speak useful German for real life situations in a way that feels natural and easy to you.

Other German learning apps and online courses (Duolinguo, Babbel, etc.):
1. They don’t use English-German similarities (your hidden knowledge) as an advantage for learning German
2. Their way of teaching is therefore much slower and difficult and involves a lot of memorizing words and studying difficult grammar theory
3. They teach what is not so useful and important for basic communication in German
4. You usually spend weeks and months to be able with other apps to communicate in German. When you learn German from English you can have basic conversations already after a few hours
What science says:
"It is a general and basic law of any kind of learning that we associate new elements, items and structures with elements, items and structures already stored in our memory."
- Gerhard Neuner (German language scientist)
"If I had to reduce all of educational psychology to just one principle, I would say this: The most important single factor influencing learning is what the learner already knows. Ascertain this and teach him accordingly."
- David Paul Ausubel (American educational psychologist)
