The usual time to reach B1 in a language school is 180 days with a 60% chance to pass your exam. I’m certain that we can beat this result easily with this course. You can achieve German level B1 in 90 days or less, depending on your language learning skills, discipline and amount of work you put into this course.
Notice: To pass a B1 exam, you also have to prepare for an oral exam. This course contains techniques that will help you to improve your speaking skills but as it doesn't teach any exam specifics, we strongly recommend that you seek the help of a conversation trainer (you won’t need a tutor as you have this course to teach you). You can work with one of our trainers (contact us if you are interested. Their hourly rate is 25€ per 30mins).

I found his method and training methodology extremely logical and intuitive. Mr. Michael Schmitz has over 20 years experience in language teaching and summons all his expertise for the student's benefit. Highly Recommended

Michael had to undo years of anxiety at failing to actually learn the language, years of misunderstandings, frustrations and generally beating myself up.
So after telling myself for years that I could never, ever get to B1 standard, I got 84.5% on the exam!!! And here is the crucial thing: Michael has changed my way of learning languages for life. I now have a system in which I can continue to learn German, not as a rush to the next exam (although goals are good!), but as a life long learning process which I enjoy. Yes….actually enjoy learning German - who would have thought that was possible?!

I've been learning German on and off for a couple of years now. I had it mandatory at the high school and even tried years later on my own. Because I never progressed enough, I always called quits out of frustration.
I've got to know Michael from his Youtube channel, where he explained his approach and described a couple of techniques he uses. After contacting him over an email, I was surprised how quickly he got back to me.
Now that I work with him every week, I am very much pleased with the efficiency of my learning, all thanks to his quick pointers and well-structured learning plan.
He (along with his conversation tutor) got me to open up and start talking, long before I would consider that I can form sentences correctly. It helped tremendously, as in the past I tended to wait until I thought I was "ready".
I appreciate his involvement, attention to what matters for my current stage of learning, swift replies to my messages, as well as carefully crafted study materials he offers.
I highly recommend working with Michael

I had been teaching German in several language schools and countries for over 13 years before I got frustrated with the current system of teaching German. I never really questioned the system that is still used world wide by renowned institutions like the Goethe Institut or Berlitz and Inlingua. But once I stepped out of the system I could see clearly what went and still goes wrong and set out to fix it. This course is just the next step in the evolution of a new era of learning languages starting with German.
I have a Master's degree in German as a Foreign Language from the Technical University of Berlin and one in Turkish Studies from the Free University of Berlin. I've been working as a German tutor since 1999 and have worked with over a thousand people from almost every country of this planet. They were of all ages and classes, had all kinds of religous and political views and were at times more at times less talented to learn German. Overall I spent more than 10.000 hours of my life on teaching and learning languages.
German is my favorite language as I have a deep understanding of its logic and beauty which I'm trying to share with you in form of this course.
