Digital Classroom Experts
DAS Akademie has been at the forefront of teaching German as a foreign language since 1998. Our world-class language school designed its online German classrooms in keeping with the same spirit: Speaking comes first and only practice makes perfect. In addition to this, DAS Akademie is also the proud developer of a unique e-learning software: MintiCity.
We make you speak! This statement has been our motto since 1998. Our 15 years of experience in online education is proof: Students need access to custom exercises, engaging learning activities and immediate feedback. In this way, they can fully benefit from live German classes, intensive or evening, with a qualified German teacher. In short, our goal is to free up the time to make better use of face-to-face interaction during your online German course.
To summarise, in our online German lessons your teacher:
- follows the progress of every student
- prioritises the progress of the entire class
- assigns individual modules and exercises
- sends you the homework corrections
Learn German online effectively
Learning German online with a language learning app is often associated with a lack of live interaction. In fact, you cannot learn to speak German on a language learning app alone.
Most importantly, you will develop:
- solid communication skills
- strong reading and hearing comprehension
- confidence in using the German language in different settings
Simply contact us for more information on online German courses, and our team will gladly send you the details.
Online course features
The best way to learn German involves teacher-led sessions which are combined with video-tutorials, interactive games, customised exercises and immediate feedback. Such a program should also support the flipped classroom method: the future of teaching and learning German online.
What our online German course instructors say:
When teaching German grammar or vocabulary online, I can see the progression of my students live and it is a great feeling to see their confidence grow during class discussions.
Even in virtual classes, we enjoy new international experiences. Everyone’s reaction to suddenly hearing a rooster call from Uganda or the surprising gong of a grandfather clock in Italy certainly make up some of the funniest moments.
In all virtual classrooms, you can expect a small group and highly personalised content. In fact, all materials are curated to meet your learning needs. After all, the ultimate aim of language education is communicating in the target language.
- Online classroom with 5 to 10 participants
- Interactive German lessons with great teachers
- All-in-one virtual learning platform
- Hands on support and coaching
- Custom work-sheets and assignments
Qualified teachers lead the live online German classes on Zoom. All students gain free access to Zoom when they sign up for the course. This software works on any device and provides an immersive learning experience. The students can therefore interact with each other and the teacher. Furthermore, we can collaborate on a whiteboard, share audio-visual content and exchange worksheets.
What is flipped classroom? Picture this: You arrive home, switch on your laptop and click on the link sent by your German teacher Oliver. In fact, you met him in your live online German class earlier today. So your teacher knows your skills, your learning pace and needs. The live lesson is over, but here he is again explaining how to form Perfekt (possibly the most important tense in German language).
After watching the video with Angela, you still do not get the part about adding or leaving out “ge-” when declining verbs. You just rewind and the verbs gemacht, gehört, gekocht magically appear in front of Patrick’s friendly face. Finally, you say in German: Verstanden! Understood. Now, it is time to practice, because, tomorrow, you will be applying your knowledge in active discussions.
Beyond just mere fashion, this way of self study at home is changing the way learning German works. It is called „the flipped classroom.“

Can you learn the German language online for free?
Nowadays, working and studying online are part of our daily routine. Unfortunately, it is likely to last for a longer period of time than we first thought, but that doesn’t mean that it’s less entertaining than face-to-face courses. We are proud to run Online German classes with the best German teachers in Berlin. Because our first-class German teachers motivate you to immerse yourself into the German language, even in virtual classrooms, you will definitely learn plenty of new topics such as German culture, new words and common expressions. At DAS Akademie, we have been able to adapt our courses to any situation. The world keeps evolving and so do we!
In our online courses, we learn German with cutting-edge online textbooks. However, we also give you homework from websites where you can learn German online for free. In fact, there are hundreds of free materials you can find on the internet to study German. Wouldn’t it be great if an expert could curate the online resources? DAS Akademie’s experienced German teachers test hundreds of web pages for their online German classes. In order to give you an idea, we listed 3 great examples for each German language level. Even though they cannot replace interactive live classes, the following resources can supplement for your learning.
Learn A1 German online
English speakers who cannot follow the course in German will find this bilingual online course very helpful. The series consist of 100 episodes, 400 interactive exercises online and a vocabulary trainer with more than 3,500 spoken words, all for free. What we find really helpful are the documents with the grammar explanations in English and examples in German from the story about Harry.
To summarise: Harry combines a funny story with minimalistic but expressive animations, really good dialogues and real German with curse words and sayings. The dialogues are not too fast and very easy to follow. There are also great grammar explanations in English with examples from the story. After completing the course, you will be ready for an A2 German course.
Learn A2 or B1 German online
Have you just started learning German in a B1 course and you’re a big Netflix fan? Check out this free online German course:
This is one of the most authentic learning series we have ever watched. There are 3 seasons! So, if you like it, your German will have been massively boosted by the end of the last episode. The title is “Jojo sucht das Glück.”
From a teacher’s perspective, we wholeheartedly recommend this material to students if they want to learn German online for free. When learning German, remaining consistent is extremely important. That is to say, you need to expose yourself to the language everyday.
Learn B2 or C1 German online
It is such a cool idea for intermediate speakers – news slowly spoken. Täglich von Montag bis Samstag aktuelle Tagesnachrichten – langsam und verständlich gesprochen.
What is the most important thing to do if you are student in an online C1 German course? Have you ever asked yourself what can help you attain native-like fluency in German? Of course, everyone will answer differently: I need to work on my grammar, read more in German, speak with native speakers… All of this is true and depends on your personal learning history and the most annoying mistakes which you can’t seem to master. As German teachers, we recommend that everyone focuses on the spontaneity and flow of the German language. Nothing compares to listening to the daily news in German to improve your language skills.
We endorse the following YouTube channel for all levels in German, because, in our opinion, everyone who wants to learn German will learn it well here:
Despite not being as popular as other channels, it is just brilliant: you learn German online in the context of a short story, you see the words in English and German and you hear a native speaker. Additionally, you can print out all the texts and worksheets and learn German offline or on the go. Wirklich gut gemacht!
