Finally start speaking German today.

Learn German the fun, easy way with our new self-paced online course specifically made for English speakers like you. Short, engaging lessons that you can do anytime, anywhere. Feel yourself progressing rapidly, without stress, and saving a ton of money along the way.

Quickly bring your German skills from zero to hero: Understand what matters right from the start.

Do you know that feeling of just having learned something new and you immediately start noticing it everywhere? It's exactly like that with the Deutschable Beginner German course - from the very first content-packed lesson no time is wasted as we gradually realize our goal: To get you to understand and be understood - and to use German flexibly any way you need to. 

It's so simple (and that's why it works):

This course was designed to be as simple and straightforward as possible. There are no complicated menus, no admin, no distractions and no decisions: Start with lesson one. Move on to the next lesson when you're done. Repeat. We'll introduce new concepts and recycle them throughout the course. No need to backtrack. Kick back and rest assured that you're learning exactly what you need at the time. 

Each lesson has three parts (representing the ultra-effective APU method: Absorb, Practice, Use.)

Part 1: Watch a short explainer video

At Deutschable, not a single video is longer than five minutes. We're all busy and often don't have the necessary time or attention span for sitcom-length grammar presentations. But five minutes can be watched anytime, even while waiting for the bus.

With these snappy, fun-sized lessons even the most "difficult" or "complex" aspects of German are efficiently broken down and explained in clear English. You don't need to know anything about grammar or other languages to make sense of it. Pause, rewind, slow down, rewatch as you like. And absorb knowledge like a sponge.

Part 2: Take the smart practice quiz

Each video is followed by an unassumingly short quiz that's actually got a lot under the hood. Like having a private language teacher, the quiz prompts you conversationally to engage with the material you just learned. And when your answer's not correct, it'll tell you exactly why and how to improve. 

The quizzes also serve to recylcle concepts that you learned in previous lessons, making sure they stay fresh in your mind and that you can use them anytime.

Part 3: Move on or interact with the community

After completing the quiz you're done with that lesson and can take your new-found skills on the road - impress your new German friends and colleagues by saying stuff they never expected from a beginner. 

At this point you can move on to the next lesson. You can re-do each lesson as opften as you want, if you feel the need. If you have any questions or comments, each lesson features a comment section where other students and the teacher can discuss any aspect of what was just learned, like having an optional classroom experience whenever you want.

Meet the teacher.

Stephan started teaching languages when the movie "Lost in Translation" hit theaters, and "Hey Ya!" from Outkast was at the top of the charts. If you don't know what any of that means, you're kinda missing out... and making him feel old.

The point is this: Stephan has been an English and German teacher for a surprisingly long time - and has finally made his professional dreams come true: to bundle all of this experience and create this unique course.

Outside of the classroom itself, Stephan has spent most of his time as a teacher-trainer and language school manager in Berlin, with a focus on quality control and educational product development. He knows what works , and what doesn't. What keeps students engaged, and what makes them leave their courses. He knows what makes a good teacher, good material, and good exercises.

He quit his job in order to develop Deutschable, a program based on the simple premise that students who already know English can fast-track learning German without needing a classroom environment or expensive private teacher. 

He's excited to have you try out the course and start speaking German today!

What the students are saying:



These lessons are absolutely amazing!

Fantastic teacher. This is much more manageable than the online zoom classes, with work and parenthood having fluctuating time requirements this kind of lesson is perfect. My family and I are enjoying your class, and already are recommending it to folks we know moving to Germany.



Stephan is one of the best language instructors I have come across!

With an intuitive knowledge of individual students' struggles with German and a capacity to explain the structure of the language, in context, that exceeded my expectations ...watching Stephan go through strategies to explain sometimes complicated language structures helped me immensely as an instructor, to say nothing of my growth as a student.



These explanations I finally understand!

I'd like to say that I have spent so much money on books, courses, time etc. and these / your explanations I finally understand!!! I think I'll finally be able to pass B1!!! I knew in my integration/immersion class I missed so much of the basics because it wasn't explained in English. I can not thank you enough!!!

Module 11

Premium course

For some perspective:

€15 - €75

is what it might cost you to use a standard language-learning app for one month, regardless of progress.

€200 - €500

is what you would pay to take an A1.1 group course in a Berlin language school.

€900 - €1200

is what you would be charged to cover the contents of A1.1 with a decent private one-to-one teacher.

You can skip all that and save money: Start learning German with Deutschable.

Our program includes 100% of content from standard German course materials and language school curricula. But it goes far beyond that, fast-tracking important conversational elements and adding words that actual Germans use most frequently. Take level A1.1 with Deutschable and save loads of time, money, and hassle.

A final word from stephan.

Why today matters.

This might not be the course for you. Everyone has a different learning style, and this might not be a good fit. Even if I were speaking to you in person right now I would not try to convince you that it is. But I would desperately try to convince you to try it out and know for sure.

Learning a language is life-changing. It opens doors you never knew were closed to begin with. It allows for a life of independence, of opportunity, of new friends, new jobs, new horizons. And how you get there is entirely up to you.

Not in an abstract sense. In a very real, immediate sense: You can make a decision right now to set you on a path that might change your whole life.

Or I'm just being dramatic. :-) This might not be the course for you. But I'd happily rather give 100 refunds to people who've tried and know for sure, than to miss out on one student for whom this might make all the difference.
