Our Channels

Because we believe that learning German and having fun do not have to contradict with themselves, we have developed the "Goetheinstitut.Deutsch" channel.

We provide you with simple explanations for difficult topics, help you with panic backups before the exam and challenge you with pronunciation challenges. It will be instructive, varied and funny.

With Alexander

Alexander Zaß is the host of our channels. He comes from the Rhineland, where he studied linguistics. He has lived in Berlin since 2015 and worked there as a lecturer at one of Berlin's most renowned German schools for several years. Besides the declination of "der, die, das", Alexander is interested in gaming and has been part of the "World of Warcraft" community for over 15 years.

For You

If you're learning German and you're on TikTok or Instagram, this channel is for you. Previous knowledge is an advantage, as Alexander only speaks German to you. The content is aimed at learners between levels A1 and B1.
