Meet some of Lingoda’s German teachers

When you choose to learn a new language, you often don’t get to pick your teacher beforehand or know anything about them. Lingoda has a large selection of qualified, native-speaking professionals that rotate, so you get to experience different accents and teaching styles and learn something about them in advance. Meet some of our German teachers and discover why they love teaching online with Lingoda.

Very good website for learning language, the learning material is very broad (writing, speaking, vocabulary, grammar…) and the teachers are native and very, very good! I’m very happy I found Lingoda. Good job to all the teachers!

I can honestly say that for me, at least, Lingoda is the only game in town I’d consider for French and German. The annual packages really make it affordable. I only wish they’d add more languages. The updates to Lingoda have really improved the student’s ability to select and choose courses within the series.

I have been with Lingoda for around three years. On and off I come back to studying and refreshing my German skills. I really like that I can pick a lesson, any topic, any teacher, any time. Lingoda gives a good opportunity to plan your week ahead. I highly recommend this platform. Good luck to everybody und bleiben Sie gesund!

I’ve done just under 100 lessons with Lingoda now, learning German A2. And I’ve seen a huge improvement. Small classes, lots of talk time, a good mix of reading, writing, speaking, listening practice. The teachers are always good and you can book lessons to suit your calendar.

I have not had a single bad experience with Lingoda. The teachers that I worked with learning German were fantastic. Everyone was friendly and enthusiastic about sharing their language. There was always room to ask questions, and we learned so much! Not to mention, behind the scenes, they have great customer service.

Learning language requires spending time for it. I force myself with Lingoda. But, this way it is always fun and my German is very very much improved. Everyone has noticed. There are some really amazing teachers and exquisite linguists in its staff, which is great if you want to develop a deeper understanding of a language.

Frequently asked questions

Reading is integrated into all our lessons, with a variety of texts spread throughout. At Lingoda, we view reading as an essential part of language learning, and so each lesson begins with a short text to warm you up, introduce you to new words and put the lesson’s focus into context.

It depends on your level. Beginner students will focus on easy German reading, such as dialogues and letters. Whereas intermediate students will read more advanced texts such as articles. We also encourage students to read additional texts outside of the class, based on their level.

Reading German can be daunting for a beginner, but there are ways to overcome this. Start with easy texts like children’s books and advance to German copies of books you have previously read. Taking classes with Lingoda will also familiarise you with reading as we integrate it into all our lessons.
