Meet Your Instructor

Hi. I’m Michael (51) and I used to teach in several language schools in different countries until I got frustrated with the still common system of teaching German and developed my own highly efficient and enjoyable approach.’

About Us

I want you to succeed and to fully enjoy your German learning.

About Us

My beautifully analytical and creative mind helped me develop wonderfully efficient German courses with unique and innovative learning techniques.

12 Years Online

I’ve been teaching German in several language schools before starting my own online language school. Since 2011 I've been producing and selling German online courses.

24 Years as a tutor and learner

I started teaching German in Poland in 1999 and have been learning several languages since 1990. I’m fluent in English (C1) and still remember quite a bit of Polish (B1-B2, even though I haven’t used it in 20 years). I studied 15 languages most up to A1, some to B1 at university and privately.

Traditional methods are economical for schools and tutors, but not for the learner.

The conventional teaching system used by most language schools to teach German is primarily designed to help them thrive in a highly competitive market, rather than being tailored to the needs of individual learners. SmarterGerman sets itself apart by prioritizing a win-win approach, focusing on the success of both our students and our business.

About Us

Video: What does it take to learn German?

Learn German the natural way.

In many language schools the teacher is obligated to only use German in the classroom, yet grammar explained in German rarely makes sense. It rather creates frustration and confusion. And that’s completely unnecessary.

About Us


Wenn das Verb zwei Objekte haben kann, dann ist die Sache, die gegeben wird, immer das direkte Objekt und die Empfängerin der Sache immer das indirekte Objekt.


When you “bring” something you can bring something (use Akkusativ for that thing) to someone (use Dativ for the receiver). There are other verbs like “bring”.

Joy is our natural state whenever we learn new things. This joy has been overlaid by our past experiences and exposure to very limited strategies that we had to choose from when we were in school. SmarterGerman will enable you to recover more and more of your joy for learning German.

About Us

It’s your feedback, the development of new technology and constantly arising insights into the psychology of the language learner that help me improve my work even further. Without you, SmarterGerman wouldn’t exist.
