After telling myself for years that I could never, ever get to B1 standard, I got 84.5% on the exam!!! Michael has changed my way of learning languages for life.
Michael’s humor was the cream on top of the delicous cake that my German learning turned into.
Working with smarterGerman got me to open up and start talking, long before I would consider that I can form sentences correctly.

We are not legally allowed to say lifelong anymore, as that is likely too vague from a legal perspective, but we'll keep this platform alive for as long as I'm alive plus at least the promised 24 months.

How do I learn to speak with an online course?
I’ve created smart and simple techniques that will allow you to practice and improve your speaking skills on your own. You will find them already in Lesson 01.
How long until I reach A1 / A2 / B1 / B2 / C1?
That depends on you. You can safely assume that it takes the same
time as in any standard language school. If studying 4.5 hours per
day, 5 days per week, A1, A2 and B1 each take 2 months, B2 and C1
take 3 months.
But you don’t have to stress yourself as you can take all the time you need. And you might even be a lot faster than that. How long such things take depends on many factors above all the time you put into this and your capability to learn languages which is again influenced by many many factors.
Here’s a simple technique to calculate how long this course might take you if things go smoothly: You can measure the time it takes you to finish Lesson 01 and multiply it by the total number of remaining lessons (around 49). Divide that by the number of hours you have available per week and you got a number you can work with and adjust when needed.
