Most people (at least those that have tried) agree about the fact that learning German can be daunting or difficult. It actually does not have to be and in fact it can be fun and done quite effortlessly if done right. 

One of the first points that need to be sorted out in order to learn German easily is to really take a good look at YOUR reason to learn German.  Just saying “I need to learn German” might not be enough to really have the correct mindset. 

In order to help you sort this for you, to give you some inspiration and tipps so you can really settle this once and forever, I have recorded a podcast episode around this subject.

In this episode I am going over some of the reasons why it could be a good idea to learn German. 

But maybe you already want or need to learn German? I am also going over reasons that are not good enough. I have found some specific ideas many students of the German language have, that are actually making it impossible to be successful, while they think they are working hard on it (and they do!)

So, don’t set yourself up for failure, I want you to be successful and you CAN. 


Additional Resource

I made a worksheet for you to get what you just heard into application. You can find this downloadable PDF (and future additional resources that I am making for you to help you put what you learned on the podcast in action) in my course platform.
Here you can access these. (This is called a “course” as it lives on my course platform). So if there is any doubt in your mind on whether you are motivated enough to learn German or you are not quite sure how to find it in you, download the worksheet right away and fill it out!

I am Susi and was born and raised in Vienna, Austria. I originally trained to be an English teacher and a trainer in the United States, at Applied Scholastics in Missouri. Soon after I started teaching back in Vienna, people were also interested in learning German. So after some time I started teaching German with the same succesful method I already used in teaching English. In the meantime I only teach German online What I want to do on this website is to help as many German learners as possible by giving them information that will enable them to learn German better, motivate them and figure out why they are having troubles.
