About this Course


  A 30 day challenge for learning basic German in time for your awesome holiday or successful business trip to Germany.
30 small activities to help you feel less daunted and have a great time on your first trip to Germany.   (Updated April 2024)

A course for absolute beginners. No previous knowledge is required!

If you are a busy person who finds it hard to fit in time for language lessons, then this course is perfect for you!          
Each topic comes in a bite-sized challenge, lasting no more than 5 - 10 (a few maybe 15) minutes work a day, accompanied by a workbook (printable or fillable) for your daily notes and some exercises. This will be enough to make you feel less uncomfortable when in Germany and people speak to you or you read German instructions.  

For anybody who wants to take their German learning further, there will be monthly live sessions and a German learners' community where we can learn together and help each other.

And for the business person, who wants to exhibit in Germany or who is meeting a prospective client - this course may just help you get that deal!          

Contrary to popular belief, not all Germans do speak English - and even if they do, a few polite sentences in German may just be what they needed to hear to be persuaded to buy from you.      

Topics in the challenge covered are:  

  • greeting people 
  • My name is ... 
  • I come from ... 
  • I live in ... 
  • four little words 
  • Do you speak English? 
  • Sorry! 
  • days of the week 
  • numbers from 0 - 10 
  • Where is…? directions 
  • ordering drinks 
  • ordering food 
  • I'm allergic! 
  • numbers from 11- 20 
  • numbers from 21 - 100 
  • What's the time? 
  • How much does it cost? 
  • buying clothes colours 
  • buying train tickets 
  • body part and illnesses 
  • buying medicines 
  • booking a hotel room 
  • at the restaurant 
  • saying goodbye 

My courses are in depth, easy to understand and come with a workbook (to print out or fill in online) with space for your own notes and exercises, a quiz at the end and monthly live sessions, where we can learn together and help each other.
