Master German Vocabulary

Let me guess:

  • you love German, but learning vocabulary is just so boring.
  • every silver-bullet method for vocabulary learning you've tried has failed.
  • you're overwhelmed by trying to learn thousands of new words a year.

The problem isn't you.

The only problem is that those methods don't fit you.

This Masterclass is a 4-lesson, online course specifically designed to help you master your  personal vocabulary learning method.

Learn more efficiently by employing your natural aptitudes.

Reduce the friction in the learning process so you can enjoy learning new words.

Feel more confident in your German speaking.

Frau Nicole Warner -

“If I had gone to get my Ph.D., this would have been my thesis, but I didn't want to wait that long, so I forged ahead and made this course. The German Vocabulary Masterclass will teach you the techniques I have used in the past 20+ years of learning German, the methods my clients have taught me, and everything I learned from my teaching certification courses. Now it's yours, too.”

The Learning Objectives:

By the end of this Masterclass you will be able to say:

  • I understand the two types of vocabulary use.
  • I know what my personal method(s) for learning vocabulary are and I know how to adjust them.
  • I know how many vocabulary words **I** can learn per week/month/year.
