Getting down to details (FAQ)
Learning German has a lot of benefits, no matter what your reason is! German-speaking countries are among the leading industrial nations and often influence events in Europe and even the world. Knowing German can really benefit your career chances because of this fact. Many companies now have come to expect their employees to know more than one language.
Apart from professional benefits, mastery of the German language also has many advantages for your free time. German-speaking countries are also popular travel destinations because of their pretty landscapes and rich history. Your travels will be so much better if you can speak even on a basic level with people from the area.
German-speaking countries are also popular for studies. German is a language of culture, after all. Those who want to study the works of German-speaking philosophers and writers will not be able to avoid a language course in German.
As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to learn German. It’s just up to you to decide which one is the most exciting!
Just the basics: a strong internet connection, a computer to connect to the internet and the free video conferencing tool Zoom.
German class happens when you want it to! That’s the beauty of taking Lingoda’s German language course online. Our 24/7 group classes cover all time slots as we have German teachers based across all time zones. Create a schedule that works for you and feel free to change it up as you need to.
Great question! It completely depends on your goals and needs for learning German.
Our private classes (like our group classes) are taught by native-German teachers. They are 60 minutes long, and while there’s a topic you’ll choose ahead of time, you can ask questions during class and get more individual attention. Speaking for an hour with a native speaker is always a good idea for improving your language skills quickly!
Group classes have their own advantages. They create an interactive learning experience with other students from all over the world. Instead of learning alone, learning German with other students creates a sense of community and can be a fun way to keep yourself motivated. You’ll also have the opportunity to test your skills in conversation with several different students right from your very first class. Groups are made up of students learning at similar levels, and we also make sure that classes are only about 3-5 students to create the best learning environment.
Even if you’re a beginner, you’ll learn quickly with our immersive methods. Each of our online German lessons combines speaking practice and situational training so that what you learn in the classroom can immediately be applied outside of it. We make sure that every sentence, activity and topic builds toward meaningful communication. Your needs are our focus whenever we create new, level-appropriate materials.
Great question! CEFR stands for Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. It is an internationally recognised framework that describes language ability from A1-C2. A1 being basic and moving up to C2 proficiency.
All of our German teachers are native speakers, no exceptions. They are also highly-qualified. We are strict with hiring only teachers that have years of experience and can provide the highest quality teaching. Our teachers are also trained with the Lingoda method and standard, so you can learn German online smoothly.
Our students love learning with a variety of teachers because it means they are exposed to the range of accents present in the real world. This is just one of the many ways that the Lingoda classroom gets you to real fluency.
All materials are unique and specially created by Lingoda experts to align with CEFR. You can download the German class materials for free and use them at any time. After class, you’ll also find a quiz and some exercises that you can use to help refresh and practice your new skills.
We offer a free placement test that we encourage you to take before you begin learning. The length of the test depends on your level. The higher your level, the more complicated the questions will become. You can take the test here.
Yes! You receive a certificate for each level you finish with Lingoda. Our certificates are issued in accordance with the CEFR and accepted by many institutions worldwide. To get a certificate, you’ll have to complete 90% of your classes in a module for a CEFR language (this does not include Business English).
