What my students are saying


SmarterGerman is perfect for those that need a flexible schedule, and are also dedicated to making time for studying. In my case it worked out putting in 30-45 min daily, instead of 4 hours on a weekend. I didn't study during vacation time, and at times was busy traveling for work. I just finished A1, and am looking forward to cracking A2 even faster. Thank Michael and team!

I've tried in person classes, other online courses, private tutor... but none of them beats Smarter German! Michael's teaching style is modern and relaxed, but also gets into all the grammar and details. It's even fun, I actually wake up excited for the next lesson! I can see all the effort the team had to continuously develop the structure of the courses. I can say I am a huge fan! I can't recommend SmarterGerman enough!



I don't think it would be possible to find a more innovative, thorough, comprehensive, diverse and enjoyable course than SmarterGerman. Michael is aware of the psychology behind learning and wellbeing and has a great sense of humor which shows throughout the course. Michael is the best support one could hope for. Warm, compassionate, understanding, experienced and always has great advice. An easy five stars!

For this level, you’ll get all the necessary grammar. Wouldn’t be much of a genuine German course without it, right? However, if you’re truly questioning this, I’d suggest perhaps you’re missing the bigger picture. In the rarest of situations, the exact grammar points covered in a German course are of much importance. The key is mastering comprehension (reading and listening) and expression (writing and speaking) in the language. That’s the central aim of all my courses. While grammar is an enriching aspect that many find gratifying, it shouldn’t be your primary concern unless you’re prepping for a specific grammar exam in school or at the university level.

This course provides you with everything you need to reach the designated level of the course. For B1 we have a special course to prepare you for the exam.

Yes, via the sG Community (which you will be invited to after purchasing the course). I’ll usually respond within 24 hours.

No. This is an all inclusive German language course and all additional tools are free of charge.

No. You need an internet connection.

Yes, of course. The mobile version of the course is beautiful and there is even an app for Android and iOS. Some features like our vocab trainer, the community widget or the dictation tool are not available in the app though.

I’ve created smart and simple techniques that will allow you to practice and improve your speaking skills on your own. You will find them already in Lesson 01.

That depends on you. You can safely assume that it takes the same time as in any standard language school. If studying 4.5 hours per day, 5 days per week, A1, A2 and B1 each take 2 months, B2 and C1 take 3 months.

But you don’t have to stress yourself as you can take all the time you need. And you might even be a lot faster than that. How long such things take depends on many factors above all the time you put into this and your capability to learn languages which is again influenced by many many factors.

Here’s a simple technique to calculate how long this course might take you if things go smoothly: You can measure the time it takes you to finish Lesson 01 and multiply it by the total number of remaining lessons (around 49). Divide that by the number of hours you have available per week and you got a number you can work with and adjust when needed.
