If you’re looking to develop your language skills and expand your possibilities in just six weeks, then you’re at the right place.
GermanMind takes pride in our students coming to us with no German at all and leaving our beginner course speaking, understanding, and writing the language.
Our interactive online classes are taught by passionate native German speakers, who create a fun and friendly atmosphere for learning.

You will also be speaking German from day one with in class reading, pronunciation exercises and with your assigned buddy in and outside class.
In class we focus on four key language skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. You will also study grammar and extend your vocabulary through class interaction, homework and extracurricular activities such as watching a German movie, or listening to some German radio.
We follow the guidelines of the common European framework of reference for languages (CERF), and use high quality educational resources which include course books provided by your teacher, and books that can be purchased online or at our affiliated book shop International Books in Dublin, where students receive a 10% discount.
