I broke down the German language in a logical way that is simple and makes sense. You will understand everything as I explain things in simple English instead of the usual Gibberish.

I found Michael's method and training methodology extremely logical and intuitive. His humor was the cream on top of the delicous cake that my German learning turned into.
It quickly becomes tangible that Michael has over 20 years experience in language teaching which he summons for your benefit. I can only highly recommend working with sG.
So 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.
I now have a system in which I can continue to learn German, not as a rush to the next exam, but as a life long learning process which I enjoy. Who would have thought that was possible?!

I had been teaching German in several language schools and countries for over 13 years before I got frustated with the current system of teaching German. I never really questioned the system that is still used worldwide by renowned insitutions like the Goethe Institute or Berlitz and Inlingua.

I developed this course due to getting bored to death in the over 20 language courses I took and even in my own German classes (with me teaching them) where we were only allowed to speak German to the students. Needless to say that those classes were far from efficient.
The course includes over 54 lectures which are segregated in 6-8 steps each, featuring over a hundred videos of more than 35 hours of video lessons and detailed supporting text modules. I have also added over 50 fantastic learning songs especially created for the purpose of learning German more intuitively.
This course is built on the following 7 principles:
