I had plans to launch a new B114 project near the end of 2016 but when Justin contacted me and convinced me that he’d be able to repeat the success of the first project, I thought why not see, what can be done without much preparation.
Justin knows a bit of German, but you can judge by yourself in the videos above whether his actual German is rather a hindrance then of help with such an ambitious project. I made no promises to Justin and also told him that I wouldn’t have the time I had back then with Ewelina but his spirit remained unbroken. So we will meet daily for about 30-40mins and he’ll have 30mins of daily conversation lessons with Maggie and the rest is on him. I expect him to study for at least 9 hours according to my instructions and to stay away from any drug or party-related sleep deprivation. This is a serious undertaking for all of us.
He found a school that offered a TELC B1 exam on the 4th of March 2016, exactly 14 days after his arrival here in Berlin and travelled over 1000 km by car just to get here. This shows exactly the kind of dedication that I seek in a project partner and I am hopeful that we will achieve an immense progress in the coming two weeks.
I will record the audio of our sessions and occasionally share them here. I will also provide you with updates and an interview at half-time and at the end of the project. I’m thinking of publishing the complete recordings as a course for a reasonable price but will make the dependent on the quality of the process and the outcome.
Make sure to subscribe to our youtube and facebook channel and check out our blog frequently to stay up to date. The hashtag I’ll be using is #b114. Now watch the video on top of this article and judge Justin’s German as it is now.

Take a look at the material we will be using for this project.
Justin has written the exam on the third of March 2016. We are now waiting for the results which might take up to six weeks (that would mean latest by mid April we should know more). Why don’t you shorten the waiting time by checking out our German learning material that helped Justin learning an incredible amount of German in very short time? Simply click on the egg below.
The results are here. Justin passed his B1 exam after just 14 days preparation with flying colors. Hut ab und Herzlichen Glückwunsch.
