The secrets of learning German from English for beginners
Before I became a foreign language teacher myself, I had to learn the languages from the very beginning. I learned English, French and Spanish at High School and at language schools. When I was sitting in the classrooms or at home doing homework I often found it difficult to make sense of the new words and grammar that seemed to be from another planet. I felt overwhelmed. I had moments where I felt lost and just couldn't make sense of it what the teacher was trying to explain to me about that language. I felt that the way the teachers were teaching were not very effective, sometimes confusing and that it just took too much time and effort to finally see results. I was thinking that there had to be an easier way to learn a new language. I experienced that whenever I could make a connection to German - my mother tongue - I could understand and learn the new language much easier and faster (for example English and German words: brother - Bruder, house – Haus, cat – Katze, and so on). The teacher did not have to explain so much to me because it all came natural. But unfortunately the teachers rarely made use of it.
A few years later, when I started teaching German I noticed even more how similar English and German actually are. I realized that not just many words were similar but also many phrase structures. After doing some research I found out that around 50% of the English words are related to German and the word order has many similarities as well because both languages have the same roots since they belong to the Germanic language family. But the way we were supposed to teach German did rarely make use of what German has in common with English. Instead, the books taught vocabulary and grammar which were complicated and not so useful for typical real life situations with German speakers or for travelling. And being able to speak and communicate easily should be the final goal – not to make a rocket science out of it – I thought.
I noticed that many language learners don't want to lose endless hours on grammar theory and on memorizing hundreds or even thousands of words until they finally speak their target language. I personally would have loved a teacher who would've pointed out similarities first rather than starting out with what I don't know, struggling all the way and learning slowly. Imagine how motivating it is to first discover and use what you already know about German. In fact, many language learners - maybe you are one of them - want to be able to communicate in German as quickly as possible and start out with the basics that are important for communication in a German speaking environment.
So I finally came up with the idea to create a German learning method which takes advantage of what English speakers already know about German and activate this knowledge to make learning as natural and easy as possible for anyone who knows English. Combined with the 100 most frequently used German words it’s possible to create thousands of sentences in German without much effort – a powerful shortcut to the German language that can transform your English into German in 48 hours or less!
"I would like to learn German but I heard it is too difficult and I don't have the time to spend endless hours on learning the grammar, memorizing all the new words and even do the pronunciation right."
If that sounds familiar to you I can assure you that you are not the only one out there. In fact, learning German in a more easy and efficient way - avoiding the long, tough and painful path of learning the language is a desire which many language learners have.
Count yourself lucky - you as an English speaker have a surprising advantage. Since German and English have the same Germanic language roots it can be astonishingly fast and easy for you to learn basic German! It simply needs the right learning method to activate the German you already know from your English!
You will feel knowledgeable, competent and motivated using the basic German language by the end of the course . With a vocabulary of approx. 4414 German words and a careful selection of the most 100 frequently used German words in your memory it is possible to be able to string around 80.000 German phrases together and to speak useful German for real life situations in a way that feels natural and easy to you.
In 48 hours - or even faster - depending on your learning speed - you can see the surprising results and finally feel confident using the German language.

"A ver intelligent approach to learn German... I am very happy with the material."
- Monica Huerta
"I never thought that learning German could be this easy. It really works using what I already know from English and transform it into German. I don't know any other course where you learn so naturally and quickly."
- Rebecca Lewandowski
What science says
"It is a general and basic law of any kind of learning that we associate new elements, items and structures with elements, items and structures already stored in our memory."
- Gerhard Neuner (German language scientist)
"If I had to reduce all of educational psychology to just one principle, I would say this: The most important single factor influencing learning is what the learner already knows. Ascertain this and teach him accordingly."
- David Paul Ausubel (American educational psychologist)
"The learner uses what he already knows about language, in order to make sense of new experience."
"It is his previous knowledge of the second language that the learner uses. In the case of transfer, the learner uses his previous mother-tongue experience as a means of organising the second language data."
- William Littlewood (British language scientist)
"From the very beginning learners profit from similarities they perceive, especially formal similarities, which help them to establish cross-linguistic equivalences."
"A natural tendency in learners, especially at early stages of learning, is trying to establish a one-to-one relationship with a unit in another language, usually the L1 [first language]."
"The natural procedure in learning something new is to establish a relation between a new proposition or task and what already exists in the mind."
- Hakan Ringbom (Finnish language scientist)
About the teacher
"Mein Name ist Steffen" (My name is Steven) and I create the lessons to Learn German Fast From English - Easy German For Beginners. I grew up in Northwest Germany, right next to Netherlands. Languages were always my passion and after I graduated from university I wanted to keep on doing what I love - so I became an English and Spanish teacher. Once I started to teach my mother tongue (German) I realized how similar English and German actually are. This is when I came up with the idea to create a method which takes advantage of what English speakers already know about German to make learning as simple and smooth as possible.
As Arthur Ashe, an American professional tennis player once said: "Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can."
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How do I know that this learning method actually works?
If you haven't done it already just try out lesson 1 and 2 for free and see it for yourself. Repetitions of German words and structures throughout the entire language course make sure that what you have learnt stays in your memory more easily. Furthermore this method uses techniques that are proven to be effective by language science. An innovative and unique language learning approach you don't find anywhere else!
Is this even "real German" if I basically use my English to learn German?
Yes it is – not just "real German" but also simple and useful German! However, to become really fluent like a German native speaker is difficult - there is no doubt about it. But this is a way for you (a shortcut) to get really easy and fast access to the German language thanks to its many similarities with English. Note that still today about half of the most commonly used words in Modern English have Old English roots. This actually means that around 50% of the words used in Modern English are related at some point to today’s German language! Enough words to be able to say the most important things!
So I will transform my English language into the German language in 48 hours?
Based on our experience and calculations students in average need 48 hours to complete the entire course. You can decide for yourself how much time you spend each day, week or month on the course - this is a self paced course without stress.
How do I get access to the learning material and for how long?
Once you have enrolled you immediately get access to your learning materials – for a lifetime! With your account information you can login at any time, from anywhere in the world where you have internet.
Can I get my money back if I don't like the language course?
If you don't like the language course or you think it is not worth the money and you want to stop learning German or use an other, more difficult and less efficient language course you can reclaim your money within 30 days and you will get refunded. No questions asked!
Is the German course worth the money?
Definitely yes. It is great value because it is an innovative method and probably the easiest way to learn German which you don't find anywhere else. If you compare the prices to traditional language schools or with private mentors their prices usually range from 20-60$ just per one single hour plus 20-30$ for a textbook and they don't activate your German which you already have from English. Plus you would need to take many hours with the “normal/ traditional” ways of learning German!
P.S.: You know a lot of German already! Don't miss out on your opportunity to activate your hidden knowledge and make use of what you already know! Get started with your English to German language transformation now!
