A 30 day challenge to learn enough German to help you feel less daunted and have a great time on your first trip to Germany.
If you are a busy person who finds it hard to fit in time for language lessons, then this course is perfect for you!
Each topic comes in a bite-sized challenge, lasting no more than 5 - 10 (a few maybe 15) minutes work a day, followed by a revision quiz on the following day.
This will be enough to make you feel less uncomfortable when in Germany and people speak to you or you read German instructions.
A final assignment will also help with more personal details you might need for your trip to Germany.
And for the business person, who wants to exhibit in Germany or who is meeting a prospective client - this course may just help you get that deal!
Contrary to popular belief, not all Germans do speak English - and even if they do, a few polite sentences in German may just be what they needed to hear to be persuaded to buy from you.

- greeting people
- My name is ...
- I come from ...
- I live in ...
- four little words
- Do you speak English?
