_________________________________________________________________________________________________

Dictation is one of the oldest language teaching activities and its advantages are numerous. It is an effective tool not only for improving the student's writing ability, but also their listening comprehension, reading and speaking skills. In addition, dictation helps students to diagnose and correct errors that are usually overlooked.


"Write German like a Native" is perfect for you if you want to:

  • master German writing and spelling skills
  • understand spoken German with ease
  • learn new words to expand your vocabulary
  • perfect your German pronunciation
  • start thinking in German


The course develops all 4 language skills in an integrative way

  • Listening: as the passage is dictated for students to transcribe
  • Writing: when students write down the dictated material
  • Reading: as a follow-up students read the passage silently to check for mistakes
  • Speaking: when the passage is read loudly to practice pronunciation


The dictation exercises start at a basic level and increase in difficulty. New vocabulary and grammatical concepts are added as the exercises advance. For your convenience you will find the transcription and a list of the used words (+ translation) in the resources section of every lecture. Please note that this course does not include grammar explanations, but focuses on dictation as a language learning tool.


This is what you can expect:

  • 10 interesting dictations of everyday spoken/written language
  • Downloadable PDF files with transcription and vocabulary
  • Exceptional support and prompt answers to your questions
  • A 30-day full refund guarantee, no questions asked
  • And last but not least… to write German like a native!


Are you ready? Then sign up for this course and take your German skills to the next level!

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who wants to improve their German listening and writing skills
  • Please do NOT take this course if you're looking for detailed grammar explanations
