About This Class

Part 1 of a 30 day challenge for learning basic German in time for your awesome holiday or successful business trip to Germany.

If you are a busy person who finds it hard to fit in time for language lessons, then this course is perfect for you!

Each topic comes in a bite-sized challenge, lasting no more than 5 - 10 minutes work a day.

This will be enough to make you feel less uncomfortable when in Germany and people speak to you or you read German instructions.

And for the business person, who wants to exhibit in Germany or who is meeting a prospective client - this course may just help you get that deal!

Contrary to popular belief, not all Germans do speak English - and even if they do, a few polite sentences in German may just be what they needed to hear to be persuaded to buy from you.

Topics covered are:

  • greeting people
  • My name is ...
  • I come from ...
  • I live in ...
  • four little words
  • Do you speak English?
  • Sorry!
  • days of the week
  • numbers from 0 - 10

Day 10 is your turn, as it's time to celebrate your progress. Day 10 is not a video but your project, which will be answering questions about day 1 to 9, test yourself and then celebrate  :-)

Very thorough! Angelika covers the important basics and repeats the words enough so you learn them easily
Very good class. Very well explained with some good humour. I liked that some German culture was explained. How some words have changed over time, and what natural German speakers may say is not necessarily what you learn in a standard classroom.
