What happens before the German Online Course starts?

Before you book a German online course, you should check its schedule. German intensive courses are held more often than general ones or their duration is greater than standard lessons have. There are also separate courses designed for people with the same level of proficiency, for instance, beginners (A1 German course online).

Moreover, you can choose to sign up for a private course. It is the right option for those who want to learn German at their preferred pace. These courses are particularly useful to improve your pronunciation as you will be training alone, and your teacher can devote enough attention to this matter.

However, studying the German language in a group is also great. You will be able to interact with a teacher and other people taking the same course.

The Best Teachers for German Online Courses!

When it comes to learning a language, it is essential to choose the right teacher. We have a range of strict requirements to the people we hire. In particular, all of them are required to have several years of experience in the field and necessary teaching skills to encourage learners to discover new things and keep the educational process for them as enjoyable as possible.

How to Start your German Online Course?

For a start, it is essential to determine which level of proficiency in the German language you have. It is determined based on your knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, etc. There is a test that you can take to find out your level. All you need to do is to follow clear instructions and give answers to questions.

There are the following levels you will gain upon completing a certain online German learning course:

 

A1 (beginner). It means that you have some basic knowledge. For instance, you can introduce yourself

A2 (elementary). Your knowledge is enough to build sentences and often understand the meaning of sentences

 

B1 (intermediate). You can describe your interests, passions, etc. You can understand the meaning of standard sentences without any problems

B2 (upper-intermediate). People who have completed this course are capable of understanding complex texts. They can communicate in German independently

 

C1 (advanced). At this level, you can understand abstract and complex content as well as make spontaneous statements

C2 (mastery). Upon completion of this course, people can communicate in the German language fluently

If you know your level of language proficiency, you can send a request for the course you need, such as an German B1 online course, an German B2 online course, and so on. However, you will still need to take a placement test. Once you register on our website, you will get access to the test. Based on its results, you can choose a course designed for your level. Also, you have a variety of options to choose from. For instance, you can opt for an intensive German course online if you need to gain specific knowledge within the shortest possible time. People often choose this course if they are going to travel to a German-speaking country soon, for work or personal reasons. 

If you do not need a full German course online, you can pick a course focused on the improvement of certain skills, such as an online German speaking course. If you have studied German before but cannot recollect your knowledge, you should sign up for refresher classes. An online German refresher course will allow you to renew the skills you already have and ensure that you are able to use them in your personal or professional life. Whoever you are — a businessperson, student, traveler, or just a person who wants to achieve fluency in the German language — we will help you to pick the right course to study in the most comfortable conditions for you.

In advance you will receive a link and access data via e-mail.

If you want to join the session via your web browser, just click on the link provided. You will then be asked to download and execute a file. After executing the file, you will be in the classroom.

If you would like to take part in your online language course via your smartphone, you will need to install the appropriate app first. You will then be asked to enter the login details for your session.

You can also dial into the session over the phone. To do so, dial the free phone number included in the invitation email. You will then be asked to enter the session pin.

Ideally you have a current webcam with microphone or a smartphone with a "selfie-camera". But you can also take part in the online language course without a webcam. In this case the other participants cannot see you, but you will still be able to see them.

Broadband connections have a different upstream speed than downstream. If you are connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi, make sure you have a stable signal. The best way to do this is not to be too far away from your access point/router.
