Your instructor

Michael Schmitz (Your instructor and Course Creator)

I had been teaching German in several language schools and countries for over 13 years before I got frustated with the current system of teaching German. I never really questioned the system that is still used worldwide by renowned insitutions like the Goethe Institute or Berlitz and Inlingua. But once I stepped out of the system I could see clearly what went and still goes wrong and set out to fix it. This course is jut the next step in the evolution of a new era of learning languages starting with German.

What’s in the course:

The reason why the smarterGerman method is so effective, is because it’s combining over 20 years of practical experience on both sides of the classroom with a scientifically proven to work learning techniques.

The German B2 level is a huge challenge for any German learner. That’s why it is of utmost importance that you approach it efficiently striving to become independent from any teacher or course asap. Needless to say that this is exactly what this course was designed for. Smart exercises and reviews, spaced repetition and detailed supporting text modules.

This video contains 32 lessons with over 50 videos with a total runtime of ~6 hours that explain the B2 grammar and powerful learning techniques in simple English with enlightening examples and detailed supporting text modules.

This course is built on the following 7 principles:

You can only learn properly and efficiently if you understand what you are dealing with. Therefore in this course you’ll find crystal clear explanations in a language you actually understand (which is everyday English).
I want you to always know where you are in your learning process and what to do next. And how much to do of what. This course is structured in a very clear and efficient manner. You can focus 100% on your German learning and forget about fiddling around with materials.
Most of you learn a language to make use of it asap and not to brag about the Akkusativ or other sexy grammar features of the German language on the next Munchkin-party of your local board game cafe. Language needs to be used and not (only) explained. Therefore this course makes you use your German again and again and again until you get it.
Life doesn’t care whether you got a German class. Online learning is the way to go. You are sick? Your children? Something else happened? No problem. Just continue where you left off and learn German whenever and wherever it suits you best.
Every learner’s aim is to become more independent. This is this course’s priority. It’ll take you by the hand and will push you out of your comfortable next once you are ready to fly. Don’t worry, you’ll fly.
Try this course on your mobile device or in the free Teachable app (iOS only, Android not available any time soon) that even allows you to download the course content for offline learning.
Learning German can be quite a challenging experience. Therefore we offer you support in form of answering your questions in the comments and weekly 30mins meetups in English with Michael in which you can ask anything you have on your chest or just join for some really motivating and interesting pep-talk. Hell, we currently even correct your writing assignments within 48 hours (not on weekends though and this might change in the future but not without providing you with similarly effective tools.

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
If you can understand this page well, you will be fine with the content of the course. If you struggle with English you might be a bit slower than a native English speaker though but you can still work with this course.
Yes, you'll have to buy the whole course but will find that there are many many things that nobody has taught you yet. You'll learn a wonderfully efficient self-learning structure that you can apply outside of this course for the rest of your (learning) days. You'll also learn many smart but simple learning techniques that will benefit you even on higher levels. And you'll be able to fill your B2 gaps without having to start from scratch. You can always skip things that are already clear to you and will also find a growing community of smart and interesting German learners here that you can exchange your thoughts and concerns with.
How does "lifelong" sound? What does lifelong mean? Well, as long as smarterGerman or the platform that hosts this course or you exist, you'll have access to your materials. I'll do anything to keep my side of the deal for a couple of decades. By then you should have reached level B1 or be dead anyhow ;)
At this point in time no. Compared to our competitors and considering the amount and quality of its content, this course is already extremely reasonably priced. You'll get more out of it than you invest. That's our promise.
While you'll reach level B2 with this course, passing a German B2 exam requires additional preparation which this course can only prepare you for to a certain extent. On this level you'd need extra training with a living being for the oral exam. All other skills should be fine when you have worked through this course yet I strongly recommend that you work through as many sample exams that you can get your hands on. Those are freely available with a simple internet search. Also check Youtube for German B2 oral exam samples.
If you study 3 hours per day with this course you are likely to reach level B2 CEFR within 3 months or less. As learning is a highly individual task it might take a bit more or a bit less time. If you invest less time daily, you will most likely need a bit longer. You'll soon understand that it doesn't really matter how long it takes you to get to some fictive level as long as the quality of your German and your learning experience is high. Will I be fluent in German after this course? You can reach a certain B2 fluency. You will also very likely need someone to practice speaking with if speaking is your aim. I’ll provide you with tips on how to find opportunities for speaking throughout the course and in my weekly Q&A sessions.
This course only covers the level B2 CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) and can easily replace any course in a physical language school. If you lack the basics or feel that your B1 is rather weak, I strongly recommend that you take a look at my A1-B1 German course first. You can preview the intro and first lesson for free and also get a 30 day money back guarantee after purchasing it.
No and you don't need to anyhow. Individual audio and videos will be downloadable but rather for the sake of the teachable iOS app. I do not recommend working with downloads as they'll force you to leave the healthy and helpful learning structure of this course. It would be the same as getting a Lamborghini and pushing it instead of driving it.
No. Such a certificate would be worthless as no one would nor should recognize it as proof of anything. How do I as a future employer e.g. know what quality your German learning was? Was it really you who did the course? How long did it take you to finish the course? All these things would basically be based upon your trustworthiness. Such a certificate would not add anything to this. Officially acknowledged certificates are offered by the Goethe Institut (called Max Mueller in India), any school with a TELC certification or institutions that offer the ÖSD - Austrian language diploma. There is also Bulats but that's very limited as well. If I was an employer and needed to rely on your language skills I'd have a personal chat with you and check your skills in person or even in a trial day at work. So there will not be a fake certificate in our courses. By the way, the certificates Duolingo offers are also not worth the paper they are printed on for the very same reasons.

This course is the essence of over 18 years of teaching German and learning several languages with over several thousand students and over 10000 hours of expertise. We are certain that you will find it an enjoyable and highly rewarding way of learning German and we will assist you wherever we can.
