01 | You need to have purchased my C1 German Excellency Course (C1) and be up to date with your payments to be eligible to purchase this service. If you haven't purchased it, you will simply be unenrolled from it. It will take 2 weeks until you see your money back. That's simply an automated process and not a punishment.

02 | This course grants you access to smarterGerman's correction service. This service is limited to corrections of texts that are part of the course mentioned in point 01. In particular that's the writing and the Secretary exercises. No other texts are being corrected.

03 | We will correct your texts within reason. That means one text per exercise (writing and Secretary) per lesson with a few interactions until your text is corrected to a sufficient extent. We will only correct one writing and one secretary assignment per day max per learner. as that fits the needs of 99% of all course participants over the last 3 years and fits the max. speed one should go through this course anyhow. If you are faster, talk to me in the sG Community and I'll suggest alternative tasks to you.

04 | All texts are limited to max. 150 words. We'll point out 7-9 mistakes at most as you won't be able to remember more mistakes than that long term anyhow.

05 | You will receive corrections roughly within 48 hours, except on weekends. We simply won't work on weekends. Well, I will but not on corrections.

06 | Now please (please means this is not a request but a must) read the FAQ as that will save us both a lot of time and make sure you know what you are signing up for. I can smell like a Deutscher Schäferhund whether you have read the FAQ or not. ^^

Frequently Asked Questions

The course/service starts whenever you purchase access to it and ends after 1 year.
You can only purchase 12 months of access. You will only be charged once. The package won't (!!!) renew automatically. If you finish your course before the 12 months are over, fine. We won't correct any more texts as corrections are limited to course assignments. The 12 months are just there to keep an eye on the member numbers. If you want to prolong your access you can simply re-purchase the desired package or if you have good reasons as to why you didn't take advantage of this service full yet, just write me a nice email. The fee is calculated by the total number of texts (=128) that we have to correct. The service is as cheap as possible as this is a non-profit course. I might make it a bit more expensive at one point but you always only pay what you have agreed to pay upon signing up for it.
While our corrections provide great value beyond the amount of money you pay for this service, if you have the slightest doubt whether you should purchase this service, simply try it for 3 texts. Those three texts are freely available. Every correction you get here is using up precious life time and also money I pay for those that do the corrections or invest my life time to do them myself. I will not earn a single cent with this service. It is basically non-profit. Any additional revenue will result in the reduction of the service fee in the near future. You won't benefit from it but your children and children's children will. You have a 30 day money back guarantee in principle but you had 3 free texts to test this service for free which means that if you sign up you have made a conscious decision to benefit from this service and we will invest precious life time in supporting you on your journey to becoming a renowned writer of German novels. If you then still ask for your money back within the first 30 days, I will comply but you won't be able to purchase this service again at any point in the future. I might also decide not to sell any further products of mine to you if it becomes clear that you abused this service. There will also a very tangible decrease in Karma points. You will be reborn as a German teacher that can only find work on iTalki. As a rule of thumb: you can always communicate with me. Make wise use of that opportunity. After 30 days there is no way to ask for your money back, no matter how valid your reasons are.
Yes. You need to have purchased my German Mastery Course B2 and you need to be up to date with your payments there if you chose a payment plan. If you lose access to that course you also lose access to this course no matter whether you have paid for this course. The price for this service is so low because I only offer it for highly motivated and paying sG learners. If you are not paying for the main course you are not eligible to use this course no matter how much money you put on the table.
We will correct one text per writing assignment and one text per Secretary Technique of your B2 German Mastery course until it is sufficiently corrected. That's a total of 128 texts (counting in the review lessons). The max. text length we correct is 150 words as that suffices for any B2 exam. You can write about any topic you want but we won't correct texts written in a writing marathon. The keyword here is "within reasonable amount". If you write more than the above amount of texts and just want to share those texts with someone, you can do so in the comments section. We won't correct any texts there anymore though.
