Learn German Online . . . For Free!

Interested in learning German at home? Or maybe you are teaching German to your homeschooled children? I speak German, but when I went searching for materials to teach German to my own children, I became frustrated with the lack of quality in many of the products available to homeschoolers. There is a wealth of material available online, but it takes a lot of time to assemble it all into a coherent, sequential language program. That’s why I began creating this free online German course for my own children and decided to share it with you! My long term goal is to have the two to three years of high school German most colleges require available here for free.

Learn German at Home for free

For this self-directed German course, I pulled together free resources from across the web. There are video lessons, songs, stories, games and quizzes to teach concepts and give your students an opportunity to practice what they’ve learned. Where I couldn’t find appropriate materials, I created my own to fill in the blanks and make a more comprehensive curriculum. The only thing that is really lacking is a conversation component, but if you find a friend to take the course with, you can practice together! I’ll share some more ideas later to help fill this need. And if there is enough interest, I may add on a weekly conversation course.

I have had quite a few requests for materials for younger students, so have added a free homeschool German course for young children as well. This is basically an introduction to the German language and will expose your child to the sounds and vocabulary of the language through stories, songs and videos, many of which are the same that German children enjoy.

Check out the course description, and please share this valuable resource with anyone you know who may be interested in teaching German in their homeschool!

I’ve also created a course facebook page, Learn German at Home, which will have daily language fun to make learning German a little more engaging.

You can enroll here: German semester 1. The course will be available at the bottom of the confirmation page as soon as you finish the enrollment process.

Looks interesting! I have the same problem with Dutch, but it never occurred to me to put together something on the internet–we’ve just been using old books that I have, and songs, and a few adult-level resources. Good for you for taking this initiative!
