Who else is going to take this B1-level class?

This class is for adults 18 and up who have completed the A2 level and/or have taken some of the B1 level and love German.

Some learn German as a hobby, while others travel in, live in, or want to work in a German-speaking country.

Since this is a B1-level class, you can bet that everyone is interested in the same thing: speaking German.


“You really put so much work into making this an amazing learning environment.”



“Frau Warner knows how to engage everyone at their level of knowledge and bring them along to better understanding of the German language.”



“Frau Warner is patient but thorough, which is necessary for adults learning a foreign language.”


Which materials will we use?

We will use a combination of these:

Real German books

We use German language learning books from Germany.

The books we will use are B1 books which are readily available in the US. You can order them via the link in the FAQs.

Materials made by Frau Warner

We will also use worksheets and reference materials that I have personally crafted for German learners to help you learn to speak German.

Sometimes we use real-life materials from German-language websites, brochures, and advertisements, too.

What we won't use...

No grades.

No tests.

No finals.

I promise.

So who are you, Frau Warner?

Hallo, ich heiße Warner, Nicole Warner!NicoleWarnerHeadshot_eyes5x5.jpg

I first learned German when I was in my early 20’s. I had tried taking German in college and it was a DISASTER. I was constantly worried about the grade, the book we used was ridiculously confusing, and my teacher just couldn’t explain the concepts clearly.

Then in 2003 I moved to Germany and took a different kind of German course, one without a final grade, with books for learning German (not textbooks). I learned to speak German so well that when I speak German with native speakers, they think that I'm German. I'm not, although I do love a good bike commute. I now speak German at a near-native level and I've received the Zertifikat C2, the highest level of German speaking certification available. I’ve been teaching German in-person and online since 2010. I’m also certified to teach German as a Foreign Language and I teach it the way I was taught to speak it.


Welche Fragen haben Sie?

Here are more specifics about this class, including the supplies you'll need, and more. Please read it thoroughly.

Lesen Sie bitte die Informationen sorgfältig durch.

If you have completed all of the A2 level, and/or you have completed some of the B1 level in German, this class is for you.

If you are unsure, please contact Frau Warner for a free, no-strings-attached assessment.

We will use the studio d B1 books. They are older, however of high quality.

They are all available at Ibiservice.com or at your favorite bookstore.

Books are not included in your tuition.

You'll need the books, of course (see above), a pencil/pen, a notebook, and a 3-ring binder.

If you have a printer, great, if not, you can use the PDFs as digital documents or you can write the page(s) out by hand.

Once your tuition is paid, you will have immediate access to the online courses and activities Frau Warner has made, zum Beispiel:

  • Stube Radio B1: Listening Exercises made specifically for B1-level learners.
  • Landeskunde: Applied geography lessons on a variety of topics from the German-speaking countries.
  • German Pronunciation (in progress).

You do NOT need a Zoom account. Everything for this class runs via the GermanWithNicole.com Zoom account.

On a laptop or desktop computer (PC or Mac) you can simply enter the full URL link for this class into your browser and that way you don't have to download Zoom.

If you are on an iPad, iPhone, SmartPhone or Android tablet, you do need to download the Zoom app. I do NOT recommend using Zoom on Chrome, as it historically it has functioned poorly.

Yes! We work on authentic pronunciation regularly so you can grow confidently in your speaking.

There are no refunds should you quit the class. If you should quit the class, I reserve the right to bring another student into the class.

Höchstens 12 Teilnehmer. (Class size is capped at 12.)

If there is more interest in this class than that, I reserve the right to add additional students or to open another section on a different day.

If it's uncomfortable for you to talk about yourself, you are welcome to make up answers. The goal is to speak in German, so say what you can say. Das ist gut genug.

Das wäre schade. You'll still be able to download the whiteboards and use the group forum to ask questions. If you ask nicely, another student will likely meet with you to bring you up to speed. :)

Some of my (Frau Warner's) speaking might be recorded and made available, but not the class itself. If I record anything, I will make it abundantly clear when I begin and end recording. If you ask a question your voice will be recorded, or if you'd prefer you can type your question into the chat. You will not be recorded.

If you are of legal drinking age in the jurisdiction where you are when class is in session, then it's OK by me. We'll stick to the German maxim Alles in Maßen. - everything in moderation.

Early Bird Tuition $315. Regular tuition $345.
