About us







Easy German

Easy German is an online series that supports German learners worldwide with authentic language learning material. We show the German language as spoken in the streets.
In a weekly show the Easy German Team interviews people in the streets of different cities in Germany, each show having a different topic, presenting different language levels and vocabulary. The video material is subtitled in both German and English to make it easy for viewers to both listen and read the dialogues. The channel Easy Languages that also features languages other than German and the new channel Easy German both assemble over 300.000 subscribers and already gained over 55 Million views.
The language learning videos produced by Easy German are used in schools and universities all over the world. As the project itself originated from a media workshop at a highschool in Münster, it still closely collaborates with schools from all over the world to enhance language learning through multi media. In our workshops we focus on producing short videos with native speakers and language learners that are both fun and educational.

Easy German Summerschool


Join us to learn German with us in Berlin!
As avid language learners, we believe that the most successful way of learning a language apart from watching nice Easy German videos is through experience – to live through the language. What we do in our Easy German School is very much connected with how we teach languages online. The Easy German School is connected to authentic life, contains lots of fun and evokes passion for language learning in our students. We therefore combine all our lessons with practical exercises and fun activities like cooking, going out, bike tours or walking tours to exercise our grammar and vocabulary.

Learn German from the Streets

After our first successful Easy German Summer School in August 2016 we have run a shorter Easy German Winter School this year (7-10 January 2017) and plan to offer another full time 7 day program in summer to make your German more fluent and practice among native speakers.

All courses are aimed at  (A2-C1) levels who want to focus on practicing their spoken German, while also having fun at the same time. We have decided on a lesson plan which swaps textbooks for real life cultural activities. You’ll find yourself learning German whilst barbequing in the park, beer tasting, being immersed in Berlin’s underground entertainment spots or attending many of the cultural events that Berlin is famous for!

Activities included in our Easy German Summer School program (amongst others): Treasure hunt through Berlin, Talking to strangers in the streets, Bike tour through Berlin, Cooking typical German food, hidden places of Berlin history tour, German slang workshop, trip to another German city and many more – all activities include grammar and vocabulary exercises adapted to your individual needs. – A detailed schedule of the program will be sent to you after registration.

Activities included in our Easy German Winter School program (amongst others): Treasure hunt through Berlin in Winter, Ice Skating, Cooking typical German food, Glühwein & Hot Chocolate Tasting, hidden places of Berlin history tour, German slang workshop, trip to the German Baltic Sea and many more – all activities include grammar and vocabulary exercises adapted to your individual needs. – A detailed schedule of the program will be sent to you after registration.

Learn with Germans at their everyday lives

  • All our activities are fun, interactive and effective which means you will learn to become confident in the language faster.
  • We are native speakers who embody a relaxed, fun spirit making sure that you will feel in the right environment for language learning.
  • We believe that both passion and knowledge inspire language learning which is why our Summer and Winter Schools also give you the chance to get to know the countries culture a little more.
  • The classes are set at a reasonable price because we believe that everybody should have the chance to learn a language. The activities (like cooking, painting, walks and bike tours) are included in our course prices, however prices for drinks and food outside (e.g. when going to a bar) are not included.
  • There are no extra costs or additional fees such as registration fees or course material fees, we even provide hot beverages as a refreshment during class time.
  • You don’t only learn the academic “text book” vocabulary but a diverse vocabulary which is used on the street allowing you to really speak like a native.
  • we work in small groups of 6-8 people, never more than 10. Meaning that we can build stronger relationships with you and teach more to your needs.
  • We are easy to get to, we are right next to Pankow station (Ubahn and Sbahn).
