Take part in a real Beginner German course. But you're invisible.

The German course for people who don't want to be in a German course: 100% real teacher, 100% real students. We filmed an entire beginner German course from beginning to end and published everything on this site. Stream over 20 hours of classroom education anytime without leaving the comfort of your home, and without burning a hole in your wallet.

Are you a bit shy? Introverted? Far from the next German school? Got almost no budget for learning languages? 

Do you like the idea of live German classes but really don't WANT to be in one - or you CAN'T be in one for some reason?  Well, we have the solution for you now: Deutschable teacher Stephan filmed himself teaching a 100% real group of students in a beginner German class. It's a complete, full-length course with virtually no editing. Every last minute of these 20+ hours of lessons is absolutely authentic. You can now stream these lessons anytime and learn German passively, at a tiny fraction of what it would have cost to take part live.

Experience all the advantages of being in the classroom without the downsides.

This course was designed to be as "viewer-friendly" as possible. No books are used, there's no homework, no pairwork or groupwork among the students, and no awkward silences. Almost every second of this complete course (consisting of 15 sessions of roughly 90 minutes each) is filled with new information, practice exercises, corrections, or practical advice and tips. No need to worry about getting an inexperienced teacher, or having to miss a class, or being late, or not understanding something. Explanations are in English, grammar is explained in clear terms, and, best of all, you have a chance to still ask questions in each lesson's comment section!

Watch, pause, rewind, change speed...

Don't you sometimes with you could do this in real life? Turn up the volume when someone's too quiet, rewind and slow someone down when they're talking too fast? Rewatch something interesting? 

It goes without saying that you can do all of those things while streaming this pre-recorded course. Perfect for people who would feel overwhelmed in a real classroom - and who would be unlikely to speak very much anyway.

Learn exactly the same stuff as in language schools - and more!

The curriculum covers exactly the same ground as in any other language school in Germany - it just manages to do so without books, homework, or extracurricular tasks. This is a completely self-contained, progressive course (meaning, you have to take the lessons sequentially because they build up on one another), and while it covers all aspects of A1.1, it also goes beyond to explain more advanced concepts (such as the case system) from higher levels.

Gain useful language skills much earlier than anywhere else - and impress everyone with your German!

This course has the advantage of being designed specifically for English-speakers, which means that lots of time can be saved by focusing on the differences between the languages, and breezing through the similarities. This is especially true since you'd be "joining" a small group of only 5 students here.

The other thing is that, in this special course, real communication stands in the foreground, with the ability to speak in the past being covered in the second lesson - and then reinforced for every single lesson afterwards. This allows you to learn to speak like a real person right away, and communicate with Germans!

Meet the teacher.

The good thing about a streaming course and a 100% money-back guarantee is that you don't have to endure countless hours of bad teaching. That being said, it's very likely it won't come to that: Stephan has been a professional language teacher for over 20 years, with thousands of teaching hours and hundreds of students from around the world who have learned to speak German (and English) from him.

In this course, Stephan gets to combine two of his greatest passions: live teaching with real students, and building a self-paced online learning experience for countless others. 

It's not easy designing and teaching a course without books, and without the ability to put students into pairs and groups (because it would be even more boring and counterproductive watching this at home than it is for the students themselves), in one single take (no do-overs), always engaging and challenging students and viewers... but he got it done.

Stephan's excited to have you try out this special course today and finally start learning German!

Here’s what people are saying about Stephan



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!!!

For some perspective on value:

€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.

Still got questions?

I realize that this course might not be for everyone. In fact, I actually created two very different online beginner courses in order to ensure that I could enable people with different learning styles to learn German. Check out my other self-paced Beginner German Course here.
