How does Speak German Online work?

In 30 minute sessions the natives guide you through a content guided conversation. You can choose for every session from over 14 subjects what the conversation should be about. Depending on the level, the natives have images, questions, facts an fun pub quiz questions as well as little roleplays and debate topics.

Level: The native speakers adapt to your level of German and you can train exactly what you need for a fluent conversation in German.

Conversation partner: You speak with a native German speaker who specialises in conversation with learners of German and creates a positive conversational atmosphere. However, the native speaker is not a teacher.

Selection of conversation partners: In the first 4 sessions, You will be assigned to different high-rated native speakers anonymously. We want you to get accustomed to different accents and styles. Afer your 4th session, you get to select any native you would like to speake to.

Schedule: You can book your session up to three days in advance or right for the next day. No matter where you are, there will be sessions available throughout your day. If your plans change, you can cancel your session up to 24 hours before your scheduled session.
