You don’t need to know every single grammar rule or to understand every single word. I work by the 80/20 rule. Look it up if you haven’t heard about it yet or just join sG and experience it first hand.

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!


Web Developer

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!

I want you to succeed with becoming fluent in German.

My main aim is to make the German learning process easy to follow and enjoyable.

Benefit from (my) 20 years of insight in the field. I used to teach in several language schools in different countries until I got frustrated with their system of teaching.

Life is way too short not to enjoy learning German. School worked hard to take the joy out of this otherwise beautiful experience. Let’s rekindle that fire.
