How should you study?
You have chosen to learn German. And as much as that was your choice, the way you do it is also your freedom. In fact, all methods are okay. We all need to find a method that fits ourselves. We made this guide so you can understand how we planned and intended our courses to be used.
First prepare for your lesson. Study new vocabulary from the course material. Use our flashcard program to get used to the new words. Study the native pronunciation and make sure you understand the spelling and the meaning of each word. Make especially sure that you know the gender of every noun that you memorize. And lastly take a short overview of the course material so you have an idea what the lesson will be about.
2. Take the lesson
First, understand the contents of the class through English subtitles. Look at the slides and Korean subtitles with your eyes, and listen to the teacher with your ears. If you want to know exactly what the German expression was, you can change it to German subtitles. You can also search for a specific word in the video player and listen only to the bits you need.
3. Take the lesson again with different subtitles
The average length of our lessons is 13 minutes. Try to listen to the same lesson again, but this time with German subtitles. You will hear and recognize new things you had just missed. You will also get a clearer idea of the lesson contents. Try to repeat what the teacher has said. Any phrase will do. Pick one or two phrases per lesson, pronounce them and write them down on a paper.
