Online German Courses

With over 128 million people worldwide speaking German as a second or learned language, it makes sense that you are considering an online German course. While the perception of some is that German is a difficult language to learn, that’s not necessarily the case, and shouldn’t deter you from taking on this goal. If you are an English speaker, you already have an advantage as English and German are linguistic siblings.

In today's fast-paced world, there are few people who have so much spare time they have to devote to commuting to an in-person, classroom to learn a new language. If you’re looking to learn German by taking an online German course, that’s where Rosetta Stone steps in.

How Rosetta Stone Can Help

Rosetta Stone's Dynamic Immersion® methodology teaches you the German language, not just the words. Rosetta Stone has 25+ years experience developing trusted language learning programs. Using this method, you will learn the foundations of the German language. This includes developing vocabulary which is presented in an order proven to ensure better understanding of how to communicate effectively in German. The Dynamic Immersion method works, and is effective in preparing you to use German in your everyday life.

A critical piece of learning a new language is making sure your pronunciation of the words is correct. This demands immediate feedback on your efforts. Rosetta Stone’s patented TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine provides this. It instantly compares your voice to native speakers and gives you real-time feedback on your German pronunciation. This is crucial in making necessary corrections right away. TruAccent is incredibly valuable and among the most powerful tools for helping you learn and speak German.

Language learning must be convenient for you to stick with it. Rosetta Stone has quick, 10-minute lessons you can fit into your schedule anytime. You’ll begin with the basics and then move on to tackle more of the language as you progress through the levels. Because you can use both the desktop and the mobile app , you will learn German on your own time - anywhere, and at any time.

I've been using Rosetta Stone for years to gain basic competency in multiple languages including German, French, Italian, and recently Chinese and Russian. Starts with the very basics teaching basic vocabulary and grammar without any memorization. I've even impressed some locals in my travels with pronunciation and fluency. This is an excellent place to start if interested in starting to learn a new language or brushing up on one learned years ago.

I am trying out Rosetta Stone, to see if it will help out with the correct grammar and conversation (as well as learning how to read and write the language). Within a week, I can already master the sentence structure and start learning the grammar with particles. The local community is so excited to see that I am starting to learn their language. Out of all the language learning tools out there, I 100% recommend Rosetta Stone!

I've tried other language learning software but Rosetta Stone is much more challenging and professional. I don't have to worry about earning points and following the leader board. I'm trying out the ninety day trial to learn some Russian and I will pay for the privilege once I reach the end of the trial.
