Only 10-15 minutes per day - Spending just 10-15 minutes every day, will easily allow you to remember all useful German words. While memorizing words, the frequency of lesson is more important than duration of each lesson. 10 minutes on each day of the week will be more productive than one hour of tuition a week.

One minute lessons - Taking into account busyness of modern life, we designed each lesson in the way so it would never take more than one minute to complete it! So you no longer need to search for free time to practice German! Simply, once you get a chance, launch the app and do one lesson at a time =) Short sessions will not affect efficiency of word memorization.

Only useful German words - German for Beginners is a free and quick start to learn German language! Unlike others, we have only the most useful words, which are divided into 180 topic based lessons. Quality is here!

Teach-yourself German is designed, that it will use your visual and echoic memory to help you memorize German words fast and easy!

Special illustrations - We use only specially developed infographics (developed by psychologists), so your eyes can quickly identify meaning of word or action without stressing them with small unnecessary details.

Word pronunciation by native speakers - Our app will help you master pronunciation of German words! Each word is recording by professional native speaker! Additionally, in the settings you can choose between male or female voice.

Dynamic lesson difficulty - The app changes lesson difficulty gradually as you progress. To achieve this, it keeps stats for EVERY word! Example: in the spelling mode, initially you need to insert several missing letters in a word, then create a word having extra letters and finally, when you are ready, you will need to type the entire word on the keyboard.

Modes for quick learning - The App includes four additional lesson types which are made of Favorites, Difficult, Old, Random words. You can add any word to your favorites and later create custom lesson from your Favorite words. Words are automatically added to "Difficult" (the ones you struggle to memorize) and "Old" (which you have not reviewed for a long time) sections. A "Random" mode will create a unique lesson.

Do not need to know how to read - If you cannot read yet, no problem! Each word has a transcription in your language! And for more experienced ones, in the settings, you can choose a phonetic (like in a dictionary) transcription.

Additional features - Thanks to your reviews, we are constantly updating the app to make it better! To help you take care of your eyesight, with just one tap, you can activate dark theme. If you temporarily do not have internet access, no problem! The App can work offline as well!

Review Past Material - Many good apps do not pay enough attention to review past material! For this purpose we created the word game "True or False". It is very simple, but it's addictive and the most importantly, it helps to repeat past material and never to forget it!

Honestly Hate It

It had great reviews so I was so excited! Well, I was greatly disappointed, shocker.

They don’t actually teach you anything. They will say something and you have to translate. You can’t see the answers, just the word in English and a photo.

2 seconds in and I already knew I’d hate it, but I tried anyway. I didn’t bother to go much farther.

Do not recommend.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your honest review! We are very sad that you spent only few minutes with app. Could you please tell us why you were not able to see answers? May be you meant that you want to listen word again? Here is short solution for your case:

1) Restart quick step by step instruction (button with monkey icon).
2) In app's settings (under effects section) disable question timer.
3) Review words in dictionary (button in bottom right corner of level screen).
4) If you are in doubt weather method works, check reviews for Android version ;)

Here are the tips in details:

1) There are three skills in app: learning words, listening and spelling. There is also a True/False game to help you repeat past material. The achievement system and user top to keep you motivated.

The spelling part is the most complicated but any word you learn here, you will never forget. Listening is also important because even words which you think you know well (you can translate them from English to German), you may not be able to identify when you will hear them for the first time =)

2) The built in app dictionary allows you to check your progress per each word. The words are split by lesson or alphabet. There is a search form at the top if you want to find one. Each word has their own card: translation, transcription, audio, illustration.

3) We designed app to make sure that every user is happy (you can turn off articles, enable simplified keyboard, change speaker voice and etc). App has very complicated AI and many settings changes as you progress, to make sure that you are learning fast.

4) In our app you do not need to memorize words =) Just guess the correct answer but always complete lesson! It's not wasting of time!!! Once you repeat lesson 3-5 times, you will notice that you know the answer. It really works =)

We very hope you will give another try. In any case, please do not give up on learning. We strongly believe you can learn German in no time!

Great app for vocabulary building

I love this app and have downloaded across both android and iOS. It’s simple, relaxing, and teaches words not really found in Duolingo or similar apps. On top of that, the developer seems to be involved and responsive and that’s important to making a good product.
