Effective. Innovative. Real-World German.
  • Finally start speaking German confidently and without stress.
  • Improve your understanding of spoken German in everyday life and at work.

Our German B2 Masterclass is the world's only German course that offers you the following:
Improve your pronunciation

You'll learn correct yet natural pronunciation - the way people really talk. Studies have shown that natural pronunciation is more likely to be associated with good language skills than perfect grammar.

Grammar as a tool

Grammar is a tool for speaking German. You'll learn to use the important grammar structures confidently and practically, without spending hours memorizing tables and rules.

Real-World German.

Now it's time to go beyond textbook theory and speak German competently in real life. In this course, you'll learn with real-world material such as series, movies, documentaries, etc.

Access to Deutsch mit Benjamin Academy

Methodology & Expertise

We use a unique methodology developed by Benjamin and David that you won't find in any other German course. You'll also benefit from the extensive expertise of all the teachers in our team.

This course is perfect for you if ...
  • you've been stuck at the B1 level for a while and want to finally make real progress.
  • you're learning or have learned German in school and want to understand everyday German better.
  • you (are planning to) live or work in a German-speaking country or (are planning to) work at a German company and want to communicate confidently in German.
  • you're motivated and disciplined and know that you can't learn German magically overnight.
Can you really make it to the B2 level in 90 days?
Yes! It is definitely possible.

With motivation, discipline and a methodology that works.

These are the methods that set us apart from the rest:
Spaced Repetition

You'll learn new vocabulary in a brain-friendly and effective way using the free learning app Anki. We've developed our own Anki strategy to make sure that you really remember the vocabulary you learn and don't forget it after a short time.


Transcriptions


By writing down what you hear, you'll rapidly improve your listening comprehension on the one hand and expand your active vocabulary on the other.


Shadowing


You'll speak more fluently and naturally thanks to imitation exercises, as well as begin to use more complex grammar structures automatically.


Translation Cubed


Thanks to the bilingual language learning method Translation³ you'll immediately understand even more complex content and develop intuitive language skills faster thanks to translations into your native language. Currently we offer English and Russian as source languages.

At the end of the Masterclass, especially motivated participants will have a chance to win one of the following prizes:
  • Apple iPhone 13
  • 3 additional months of free membership to Benjamin's Academy with all the benefits
  • €50 Amazon voucher
  • DUDEN daily calendar for 2023


Our Masterclass will help you boost your German speaking and listening skills and overcome speaking inhibitions. We're sure that you are highly motivated to improve your German, but we also know that sometimes it can be hard to stay disciplined. Our mission is to help you make real, sustainable progress. But just in case you ever lack discipline, we'll be giving away prizes as an extra motivation to stay on the ball.
