Want to speak German confidently without any confusing grammar terms? Transform your English into German with this interactive and engaging video course, where you watch authentic German YouTube videos while building a strong foundation for conversational fluency.

Daniel Rose · 9 March 2023

In this beginner German language online course for English speakers you will learn how to speak real-life German using videos from popular German comedy channels Phil Laude, IratschTV and Freshtorge. You’ll learn how to solve conflicts in difficult situations, making first friends and gain insights into the German humor and culture while practising commonly used phrases and expressions for daily conversations.

🌴 Free yourself from the Latin jungle

Have you tried learning German using traditional methods? It can feel like you have to decipher hieroglyphics! The complex grammar explanations from traditional teachers and courses can make you feel like you need a degree in Latin just to understand German.

And this jungle of Latin foreign words makes understanding the grammar, that could open the doors to learning German for you, even more complicated and difficult. But these teachers can only stick to their outdated rules from university and are unable to explain it to you in simple English.

πŸ˜ƒ Ditch those confusing grammar terms

But don't worry, I have a solution for you. I spent the first two years of my tutoring career trying to explain grammar to my students, until I decided to ditch those confusing grammar terms and create a complete grammar curriculum myself that explains all the rules in English.

Let me show you how to make your language learning journey as simple as counting 1 + 1. Together we can explore the practical, real-life conversations that will make learning German more fun and exciting.

With me, you’ll learn how to build sentences like a pro using only your English language and get insights into German culture and life skills. Yes, we don't need any of those confusing grammar terms for that.

πŸ“Ί Get interactive while watching videos

At the heart of this course is a unique and interactive method that has its origins in the "Michel Thomas Method" and promotes active engagement through listening and speaking. Germanizor builds on this by adding all the benefits of video stories to develop observation and reading skills.

With this method, you can master the language more efficiently and effectively using just your native language, and speak German with greater confidence and fluency in real-life conversations.

Unlike traditional language courses that rely on memorisation and dull textbook exercises, I will introduce you to small chunks of words spoken in the video and challenge you to think out and build up German sentences step-by-step. This will keep your brain actively engaged and remember much easier.

🧠 Learn how to learn German by yourself

My language teaching method is designed to help English speakers become flexible and independent learners, without the need for memorizing specific vocabulary or confusing Latin grammar terms.

My approach focuses on communication strategies and the 10 "word types" which form the structure of the language. By mastering these parts of speech, you'll be able to understand German in a very short time.

As your teacher, I'll help you to think in German and ensure that you understand each lesson by breaking down relevant sentences and explaining them in small chunks, removing any tension that may inhibit learning.

Clarity of explanation is a key ingredient of my method, and I always check with you to ensure you have understood each point before moving on. With this approach, you won't need to memorize hundreds of sentences by root.

Once you know how the language works, you will intuitively know how to form words and where to put them in the sentence, so you can use your German in real-life situations and learn the rest of the vocabulary on your own.

"What you understand, you know. And what you know, you don’t forget."

Michel Thomas

🍺 Gain insights into the German culture

I know that learning a language can get super boring, especially if it's just about memorizing vocabulary and grammar rules in the typical dull textbook style. But that’s not all. It’s also about gaining a deeper understanding of the culture and way of life of the people who speak that language.

That’s why my lessons are designed to not only teach you the language but also provide insights into German culture and practical life skills through the context of German YouTuber's most popular videos full of interesting stories, which make your language learning journey even more enriching.

❀️ Create a path based on YOUR interests

With my personalized approach to language learning, you can choose the path that best suits your interests and goals. My courses cover three different levels - A1, A2, and B1 - and in each level you have the choice between three different topics which focus on different famous German YouTubers.

This allows you to pick your favourite YouTube channel, so you can tailor your learning experience and create a path that aligns with YOUR interests - and not the interests of teachers, apps or textbooks.

To get started, simply choose one of the three A1 courses for beginners. After you have completed at least one A1 course, you can move up to the next A2 level and choose a course there. Don't worry about grammar. I will adapt the sentences in the videos and explanations according to your level.

βœ… So have I just found the perfect course?

This course is not perfect for everyone. But if you…

  • like to follow and speak along with me to learn useful German sentences build from English words and explanations
  • prefer personalized lessons based on real-life YouTube videos that are designed to suit your interests and goals

  • would like to learn not just the language, but also gain insights into German culture, practical life and communication skills
  • want to rely on my personal support as a private tutor with over 10 years of experience in teaching German

❌ And when is this course not for me?

    This course might be not for you, if you…

  • trying to understand and communicate in German only by reading story books, news or online articles
  • want to have all the necessary vocabulary included in the course, which you might need for a German exam
  • don't like to use the English language and instead trying to learn German with gestures and German explanations

…then I would rather recommend another German course.

πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ Still having questions? - The FAQs

If you have any questions, you can reach out to me anytime via chat or email, but you might already find an answer to your question below...

1. When does the course start and finish?

The course starts as soon as you enroll. It's a completely self-paced online course, so you decide when you start and finish. There are 20 hours of video as part of the course, but you can space that over several weeks.

2. Can I learn to speak German in 20 hours?

Not really. Keep in mind that your brain needs also rest to remember new information, so to watch all videos in two days would be a silly move to do... πŸ˜‰ Instead watch one video and give it a rest for a day until you continue.

3. How long do I have access to the course?

After enrolling, you have unlimited access to the course for as long as you like, across any devices with an internet connection. You can also download the videos to your computer or even as an mp3 file for listening on the go.

4. What if I am unhappy with the course?

It is important to me that this course offers real value to you. So if you are unhappy for some reason with your purchase, simply contact me within the first 30 days and I will refund your money.

5. I don't have enough money for the course!

I understand that not everyone can spend so much money on a course. I also support the idea that education should be free available to everyone. That's why you can sign up for my free "A1.1 Talker" course and watch my free videos on YouTube. Once you've made money with your German skills, I would appreciate if you buy one of my courses! πŸ™‚

6. How good should my English skills be?

If English is not your native language, you can still take the course, as long as your English level is better than your German level. But if you don't speak English at all, this course will be difficult for you to understand.

7. How does this fit with your other courses?

All courses are independent of each other and can generally be taken without prior knowledge. However, you should keep in mind that the intermediate A2 and advanced B1 courses become more complex and the explanations might be a little too short for complete beginners.

8. What if I have a question during the course?

I'm glad to answer your questions in the comments. Just post it under the relevant lesson and I'll be helping you out as soon as I can. If you need more help, you can also book a private online lesson with me.

9. Is the A1.1 course really 100 % free for now?

Yes, you have read correctly. My first "A1.1 Talker" course is and will remain completely free for everyone. My other courses are only free for a limited time while they are in development. Once the courses get finished, they become more expensive. But you can sign up for my free course and look out for a discount offer somewhere in my videos or social channels... πŸ˜‰
