The Lingoplanet Method

Nothing beats live learning

Learning alone with an app can be so discouraging as there is nobody to answer your questions.

That’s why we offer live lessons using a video conference system. You study with qualified instructors using proven teaching materials. You work in groups of no more than ten students and split into smaller groups so you can complete tasks together. The course material is available as a digital textbook or print version.

Learn in small groups

Lingoplanet is based on active group work – it’s great fun and the lessons stick

You work with the other students during live classes. This is a great way to hone your language skills. It gives you a fresh look at the task in hand and encourages you to think creatively. And it’s great fun to chat in German with fellow students around the world.

Additional self-study units

Practice and repetition are key to learning a foreign language. And we’re here to help.

Every live lesson is accompanied by a self-study unit that includes thought-provoking tasks. You can revise what you learned at your last live lesson and prepare for the next one – whenever and wherever you want. Lingoplanet’s self-study units – all you need is a computer or smartphone and internet access. And you’re ready to go.

Learning just the way you like

For each course there are several intensity choices: You can have one class per week or two, and can even decide to go more intensive and book a one-on-one course, which is tailored to your needs and schedule.

 

Personal feedback

If you’re not sure you’ve done your assignment correctly, we don’t leave you on your own.
