Learn German for free in engaging trial lessons

Affordable language courses in German

One thing the modern world has given us is a multitude of ways to learn a new language - you can even learn German free. So which way is best? The short answer is none. It's up to you to decide which method of learning German works best for you. To start you off, let's go old-school. One of the best ways to learn any language is in a traditional classroom setting, with a teacher, text books and homework. Don't think you still need to be a student to fit in some old-fashioned learning though. Many companies, seeing the importance of a multi-lingual workforce, run free German language classes you can join. If not, there are language schools all over the UK where you can join evening classes, or, if you have the time to spare, take an intensive German course that aims to get you speaking with confidence over several days or weeks of focused classes.

On the road to fluency: Free German classes

Today, learning another language is a simple as turning on the TV. Plenty of people learn English by watching English-language soap operas, so why can't it work the other way around? If you have Sky or cable, you'll likely have access to some German-language TV channels, and if not, you'll find plenty of places to watch German films and TV online. Netflix should be your go-to if you have a subscription. Not only can you search their database for movies produced in the German language, but when you've watched all that, you can switch the audio on English-language content to German, or, if you're not a fan of dubbed shows, turn on German subtitles instead. Always on the go? That's hardly surprising; numerous studies have shown that modern society is busier than ever before. Even if you're time poor, you can be learning rich with the multitude of apps that allow you to study in bite-sized chunks when you have the time. Even five minutes of language learning a day can get you on the track to fluency.
