I use TPRS (total-physical-response and storytelling) as well as other CI-methods (comprehensible input). Therefore it's just like watching fun and entertaining videos and playing games. Learning German will be something that happens naturally.

It's important for me that German is fun with up-to-date and useful phrases. Therefore there aren't any boring exersices where you need to fill out worksheets or memorize extremely formal sentences.

We focus on listening, comprehending and speaking, rather than reading, writing and grammar.

You will still ahve the chance to start reading and writing as we go along the course. It's just not something I'm teaching.

In conclusion this course works for the whole family and even kids can follow (most) of the videos and lessons.

Who this course is for:

  • You want to test if German is "the language for you"?
  • You don't like grammar
  • You want to learn with comprehensible Input
  • You want to learn German naturally
  • You like to listen to stories
  • Your focus is on understanding and talking rather then reading and writing

I'm a German native speaker who studied early childhood education.

Education  and learning are my passion. Since  2018 I publish a lot of learning materials for children. I  then  proceeded to give German lessons, one-on-one as well as groupsettings,  different ages and different levels, all online.

That's when I discoverd TPRS and comprehensible input and I'm a huge  fan of it. As there isn't much content out there I started to upload  videos on YouTube and got so much positive feedback. That's why I  created this TPRS-Online-Course to guide you even better.

I'm so happy to welcome you in my course!
