Linguru helps you take your German to the next level.
We offer you live online lessons with experienced German teachers as well as a unique
learning platform with access to many other helpful resources to support your learning
progress in the best way possible. In the live online lessons you will learn in small
groups, typically consisting of 6-8 participants (max. 10), ensuring an engaging atmosphere.
In between sessions, the Linguru Learning Platform offers you the opportunity to continue
developing your skills through interactive tests, additional material, a variety of free
workshops and much more.
Furthermore, Linguru can act as a bridge to Germany. Regardless of whether you require
assistance with a visa, moving to Germany, or studying in Germany – Linguru will help you so
that you can fully focus on your learning.
What is Linguru’s teaching method?
At Linguru, the live German lessons are varied, interactive and engaging. The
live lessons at Linguru follow a clear structure and cover all the topics you need to
successfully learn the German language. At the same time, you will be given plenty of
opportunities to discuss your own topics and questions to tailor the lessons to your needs.
The digital course book and exercise book (purchased separately) will be the focus of your
lessons, but your teacher will also prepare additional interactive exercises, videos, games
and discussions to keep the lessons varied and engaging.
