Acquire real-life German conversation skills before the end of the year, so you don't even have to promise yourself to "finally learn German in 2020"!
Course Enrollment closes on October 1st 2019.
Today, the day I'm publishing this, is the 25th of September…
Which means Christmas is about 3 months away.
Now, imagine that by Christmas you will have learned so much German that you can:
For example, you ask for directions to a local “Berliner”.
You buy train tickets, all in German.
You arrive at your new apartment introduce yourself, and instantly make new friends.
You go grocery shopping.
In all these situations, you can hold yourself together in a conversation in German.
Not without any mistakes, of course.
But you know what to expect and what to say, and you understand what others say to you.
You can focus on exploring a new country, making friends, and having actual conversations with them, instead of worrying about grammar all the time.
You won’t feel clumsy and you won’t have to translate in your head anymore.
That's what we want for you. And if you take us up on it, we know you can do it... even if right now you still think this sounds like a far-fetched dream!
Many language courses focus so much on making you cram word lists and do grammar drills that they forget to show you real German conversation…
Which means that when you end up in a conversation, you’ll feel clumsy...
You'll be translating from your mother tongue...
And have to think about grammar rules, cases, conjugations all the time.
A much faster and better way to make you speak like a German native speaker is…
This changes everything...
Because in these conversations you can see exactly how native speakers speak, which words they use, and which patterns and word combinations (or chunks) they use.
If you do that, very soon you'll start to have ah-ha moments, where you think:
And the beautiful part: you can now start saying exactly the same thing, without even having to think about the grammar behind it. After all, you’ve just heard a native speaker say it... so you know for a fact it sounds natural!
Here are some examples of useful chunks (highlighted in German and English):
German (and other languages) just don't exist in your brain as a bunch of words and grammar rules.
They exist as a network of word combinations, CHUNKS that are always (or very often) used together, and between which the connections in your brain are so strong that they just roll off the tongue!
That’s why native Germans can’t explain why they’re using Dativ, Akkusativ, Genitiv etc. and why they often don't even know any declension tables.
That's why, if you've been watching my videos, you're all saying "Hallo alle zusammen" now ;)
It's all stored as a chunk in your brain!
Of course, you still need grammar.
But if you combine that with learning chunks, you’ll also be able to SPEAK German confidently without having to think about the grammar all the time!
Let it be clear: learning with chunks works really well. But if you want to make the most out of this method and really start having confident conversations fast, there are a few things you need to watch out for:
How do we know?
Because we've had hundreds of students learn German through chunking already in the past year. For example, Jen was a student in our past courses, and this is what she told us after going through the course:
You can hear Jen speak German here:
And here's Tiffany, who also learned German with us using the Chunking method:
THIS is what we want for you as well. Can you imagine how good it would feel to speak like that and get compliments from native speakers? It's totally possible...
Now, these courses we ran in the past are currently not available to the public because we've completely reworking all the content and dialogs.
In the past months, we've made a TON of progress with that already, and a couple of weeks ago, we were thinking…
So instead of having a “New Year’s Resolution” of learning German that you probably won’t keep anyways, you’ll actually have made enormous progress BEFORE Christmas, so you can start the year with a bang?
Which brings us to an exciting new program that we'd LOVE to go through together with you...
Here's the concept:
We start the Challenge at the beginning of October. You follow a step-by-step group study program with multiple weekly lessons (tied together as a story) that make you speak comfortably in all the essential “travel situations” in Germany.
At the same time, you also learn all the “foundational German grammar” that you need to start holding conversations (more or less up to A2 level).
By Christmas we wrap up the Challenge, and you'll start 2020 with real-life German skills (so you don't even have to "promise yourself to finally learn German next year").
IMPORTANT! WHO IS THIS FOR?
Lukas Van Vyve
Hi guys! I am Lukas from Belgium and the author of the book "Effortless Conversations" where I teach you how to learn languages through Chunking, so you can speak them without having to think about words and grammar rules all the time!
Hallo! I'm Lucas from Germany, founder of Learn-German-Easily.com. Anja and I recorded all dialogues together. I just hope you have well trained laughing muscles... you’ll need them!
Guten Tag! Ich bin Gabriel aus Deutschland. I am Gabriel, the founder of Spachheld.de, Germany's biggest blog about learning a new language. I am "der Erzähler" (the narrator) in our story!
We've been hard at work creating a big story that contains German dialogues, designed to teach you EXACTLY how to communicate and have conversations in the most frequent situations you’ll end in Germany.
We have 20 units and 60 dialogues for you, covering all situations you'll likely find yourself in when you're in Germany.
Moreover, these units also cover all foundational grammar up to A2 level!
Every week you'll get access to a new unit with several dialogs. All the lessons are available in our private members area.
You get lifetime access to them (so even after the Challenge ends you can keep accessing them)...
And you can download and/or print out the materials if you prefer to learn with paper materials or listen to the dialogue in your car.
What's more: we don't just give you these learning materials... We also show you exactly how you can use them to make the most out of them!

Every lesson comes with:
Language learning is not a linear process, sometimes you feel like you’re improving a lot, then one bad experience can make you feel like you’re not getting anywhere.
The trick is not to be discouraged by this; if you stick to the program for 10 weeks, you WILL make enormous progress. We can guarantee that.
That’s why you need to find ways to keep yourself on track and accountable so you stick with it during the 10 weeks.
We already said before that you get lifetime access to all lessons. We'll release them over a 10-week period, but you might need more time to go through them (or just review them later on).
That's why we also want to give you lifetime access to the Community with other German students. After all, you might have questions about these lessons in the future as well!
What's more: we've noticed in past courses how motivating being in a community with other students can be. You're not in this alone, and it's fun to share photos, videos, resources, memes and have a place to go to with all your
(Important: you get lifetime community access. You'll be able to post, interact with others in the community and ask questions about the lessons. As for the weekly live calls: they take place during the Challenge).
After 10 weeks, we review your progress... And if you've completed all 10 weeks, we'll issue you a Certificate of Completion!
(Disclaimer: this is not an official CEFR certificate validated by German authorities. It's a certificate that we issue to you to show that you've successfully completed our course :) ).
If you follow the program during these 10 weeks, you’ll make some pretty incredible progress.
So by Christmas, you'll see exactly how much you've improved.
During this review session, you look back on what you accomplished, and see if the following things happened (I'm sure they will have):
The German Foundations & Travel Challenge gives you EVERYTHING you need to take your German to the next level, in a fun, effective and interactive way.
Imagine just waking up every day and knowing that there’s something new to learn waiting for you…
Something that’ll really help you to become a confident and elegant speaker of German on the topics that’ll come up in your life…
And that’s delivered in a step-by-step course, bite-sized lessons, coaching, exercises and resources so that you don’t have to look up any materials anymore yourself!
Of course, the only thing left for you is to take action…
And make no mistake: without implementation, you’ll still get nowhere!
You’ll still need motivation and dedication and put in the work!
But this Challenge takes all the unnecessary hassle out of your hands, so that you can focus purely on learning and using your German!
Upon enrolling in the Challenge, you'll get the recording of Anja's masterclass that'll show you all the ins and outs of German Sentence structure.
This Masterclass was previously sold as a standalone product for $50, but as a Travel & Foundations Challenge participant, you get complimentary access to the Masterclass.
In the Pronunciation Masterclass, we’ll cover things like:
At the end of the Masterclass, you’ll have a clear plan for improving your pronunciation, and an exercise toolkit to untie your tongue and speak German with more ease.
Lukas will host a live chunking Masterclass!
You'll walk away from this masterclass with a step-by-step method to
For the first 50 people to enroll, we want to do something special!
If you're among the first 50, you'll get a digital book package with all Anja & Lukas' books:
If you're among the first 50 people, you'll get a special message from us! :D
A full stack of learning materials, both designed to teach you real-life German conversations skills and all foundational grammar.
Live calls, a community, a progress trackers: over the course of the 10 weeks you get everything you need to stay on track and make massive progress.
If you finish the course, you'll get a Certificate of Completion.
3 Bonus Masterclasses about the most important struggles people have with German: sentence structure, pronunciation and "chunking" (learning to speak without thinking about grammar all the time).
Let’s consider some of the other options you could try to learn German:
Now here’s the thing: while we believe that an investment from your side is actually a good thing to give yourself the proverbial kick in the butt and take action, mastering German, connecting with German culture and chatting away with native German speakers doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg.
Moreover, it doesn’t have to be boring, difficult, and it certainly doesn’t have to take away all your time!
You can go through your very own German Travel & Foundations Challenge with Anja and Lukas as your coaches, for just $247, or $97/3 months if you prefer to pay in 3 instalments.

In this Challenge, you get access to 20 units with 60 dialogues that cover the most foundational situations/conversations you'll encounter in Germany.
On top of that, we also cover all "foundational grammar" up to A2 level.
So it's perfect if you're a complete beginner, upper beginner, and lower intermediate student (you'll learn a LOT of chunks from these dialogues, no matter your level).
But if you're at upper intermediate/advanced level (B2-C1), the learning materials will probably be too easy for you. We hope to be able to offer you something in future Challenges, but not yet in this one :)
No worries! You get LIFETIME ACCESS to all the learning materials in this course. So even if you're a bit behind, or you want to take a break, you can catch up later.
You can also download all materials (audio, dialogs) and print them out.
You also get lifetime access to the community to ask questions!
Yes we do! Just enroll right now, get your first lessons and attend the live calls, and if you feel you're not making the progress you expected, just send us an email within 30 days and you'll get a full refund. We want this to be a risk-free decision for you :)
Yes! If you complete the course, we'll send you a certificate of completion. This is not a certificate recognized by the German government, but it does show that you've participated in this German course (so you can put it on your cv. Or hang it above your bed ;) )
Our lessons are Standard German ("Hochdeutsch"); the audio recordings are made by German native speakers from Germany.
This totally depends on your current level, personal situation, and how big of a commitment you can make :)
We've designed the program so that you can make great progress in 15-30 minutes a day (and yes, you can take days off, of course ;) ).
But in general, you can decide on your own study schedule. If you want to take it a bit slower, that's fine too: you get lifetime access to all learning materials!
The Challenge starts at the beginning of October (7 October). That's why enrolment is open until Tuesday 1 October only, because then we will get all participants ready for the Challenge. :)
All grammar up to A2 level is covered.
As for the conversations: here's an overview of all the situations that are included in the course.

We've mentioned it a couple of times before: 2020 is coming in 3 months. And after teaching German for so many years, I know how much you can achieve with your German in 3 months, if you have a clear plan, strategy, the right guidance and good learning materials!
So if you can make a decision today to take your German studies serious now, then I promise to do everything I can to give you personal help, have tons of fun AND finally get those real-life German conversation skills in the next 10 weeks!
Seriously, there's no need to be overwhelmed by your German studies.
We know having confident conversations in German is possible for you. Now let us help you achieve it!
