Herr Professor

German from scratch for Busy Professionals


Enric on how to go from zero to an official B1 in 5 months

This is Herr Professor’s students, the podcast where I interview my students to help you get inspired and motivated by case studies of other German learners like you and their success stories.

I’m thrilled to introduce my student Enric. He’s originally from Spain but moved to Switzerland in 2014 and worked for ABB a big engineering company based in Zürich. He was my first student that went through the first part of my program “From zero to an official intermediate B1” in just 5 months. In this interview, he tells us exactly how he did it.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The key difference between a private online tutor and a group course
  • Why the learning pace of a group course can hold you back
  • How to go from scratch to an official intermediate B1 level in 5 months
  • What an official Goethe course misses to learn German fast
  • Why native speakers can’t really judge your right language level
  • Why making mistakes is part of the learning process
  • How the official B1 exam is structured

The german gender seems tricky at the beginning right? “Der” means the, “die” means the and “das” means also the. Wow, 3 times the work for the same result. “And now I have to learn every new German noun with its gender?” NOT with these two powerful tricks.

  • Understand once and for all when and how to use the adjective endings

The German adjective declension is weird? Imagine to know exactly when to say “groß, große, großen, großem, or großer “. To completely understand these endings in just one lesson. Without scrolling through weird grammar books. Without memorizing tons of tables.
