Why you should start to learn the German language

Are you wondering where to start to learn German in the United States? We will cover the main aspects of it in this short guide.

To start, you should ask yourself why you want to learn the German language. Some people choose to learn it because they like the style of the language, others want to be able to speak with some German friends, and some learn it to use it in their workplace. Whatever is your motivation, you must know what it is and remember it because it can help you stay motivated when it gets harder.

Then, you should look for a learning strategy. You can choose to learn on your own using the internet or some applications, you can hire an online tutor, or you can register at a language learning school in the US where they offer German classes.

German tutor in the United States?

To learn German in the United States, you can get the help of a tutor. Learning with a tutor has many advantages. It is more efficient, you will learn faster, your tutor can help you keep your motivation high, and finally, a tutor can give you quality content for you to learn from.

Learning with a tutor is more efficient because he will do all the research for you. You don’t need to research content on the internet on your own because your tutor will do all of this for you. An experienced tutor can also know which area of the German language you need the most improvement in depending on your needs. If you want to learn grammar your tutor will help with that. If you want to learn to speak, your tutor will give you exercises to help you with that specific topic of the German language.

With his experience, your tutor will also help you prevent some common mistakes many students do. All that will save you a lot of time so you can spend more time doing other things like enjoying your family and friends.

Maybe you work long hours and want to be the most efficient possible in your learning. Then a tutor is exactly what you need.

Next, when you learn from content you find on the internet, you cannot be sure if it’s high quality, or even be false information. Your tutor knows what information quality information is so he can check what you find to tell you if it’s good or you can even ask him to get some quality reading on German language learning.

Finally, you can also choose to register to a private school in the United States to learn the language. Most of the time they offer both private lessons and small group classes. You decide what fits best for you. At the end of this guide, we will give you a couple of ideas on schools around the country where you can register to help you learn German. 

How to find a tutor that suits you

The needs of every student are different. That’s why you must consider a few things before making your choice of an online German tutor. Here are the most common things you need to consider:

  • Location
  • Experience
  • Personality

Location is an important factor especially in the case you want to get in-person tutoring because you don’t want to have to travel too far to meet with your tutor. You can check the traveling time to meet with your tutor by car or by public transportation, depending on your needs. We think traveling more than 30 minutes to one hour can affect your motivation negatively. So, you should keep that in mind when choosing your tutor.

On the other hand, if you only want to get online lessons via video chat online, then location is not as important. In that case, you can even get a tutor that is in another city that you in the country and it will be just fine.

Next, the experience the tutor you will choose to have in the German language will depend on your own level of skills. For example, if you are a beginner, you don’t need to get the most experienced teacher available in the United States. In that case, you can get a teacher that is a little less experienced and it will be enough for your needs. Doing so might save you a buck or two because there is less tutor that is very experienced, so they usually charge a higher hourly wage.

If you are already advanced and still in need of some coaching, you should spend a little more time looking for a tutor to get one with a high enough skill level for your needs.

Finally, personality is an important factor because it is proven that learning German with someone who understands us is easier. For example, if you are a little bit shy, you should find a tutor that is also like that to understand each other better and to be more comfortable learning German.

To do so, you can start by reading the description provided by the tutor on a tutoring website like Superprof. This description will give you a brief description of the tutor you are looking for. If you still have questions you can easily message the tutor and he will happily answer you.
