Learning German Should Be Enjoyable

But you've also probably said something like:

  • I love German, but I don't have time for a class.
  • The teacher goes too fast and I need more time to learn it.
  • I looked around online, but I don't know what I should read.
  • I forgot all my German so I have to start again...again.

The amount of free videos on German and websites you can visit each week is overwhelming. How do you really know if it's meant for your level of German? Will it really meet you where you are?

I've heard all of these things so often, from people just like you! People who don't have time to take lessons, they live too far away to attend a class, need a flexible schedule, or they just want solid, reliable materials and a place to ask questions so they can study German on their own.

Introducing the GermanWithNicole Klub!

Klub Email Header_lg.png

The Klub is an online resource and library of curated activities made personally by me, Nicole Warner, to help people like you, who want reliable materials (including answer keys) they can use to learn German on their own schedule and to get their questions answered.

All the activities and materials are for German learners at the A1 and A2 levels (beginner and elementary levels). You can log in 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and access all the materials that have been published.

I make all the worksheets myself and I check out the resources before I recommend them to you. That way you can enjoy the German you're learning and avoid feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.

And I will answer your questions personally!

Hallo, ich bin Nicole Warner!

I know how hard it is to learn German because I once learned it, too. I'm now a fluent German speaker and I have been since I moved to Germany in 2003. After five years I decided to move back to the US and I've been back here since 2008. I've talked with a lot of people here and I discovered that people are not getting the resources and the practice they need to really speak German well.

How well do I speak German?

The most important thing to know here is: When I speak German with native speakers, they think that I'm German. I'm not. (Well, not legally anyway.) But I speak German at a near-native level. I can prove it, too: I took the hardest German test you can take. My average score was 84%, making me the proud recipient of the highest level of German language certification possible, the Zertifikat C2.

I also

  • love order and organization
  • ride my German bike all summer long
  • like to drive fast
  • enjoy watching Fußball
  • have visited Neuschwanstein twice

And I even

  • use German silverware & glasses
  • bake German cakes for parties
  • speak German with my cat
  • sing a lot of music from Johann Sebastian Bach.

h-moll Messe, anyone?

Speaking German isn't the same thing as teaching it, though.

That's why I got certified to teach it and the Goethe-Institute granted me their German teaching certification DaF Unterrichten in 2018.

I actually started teaching German in 2010 and since then I've taught thousands of hours of German. And that's above and beyond all the teaching I used to do when I lived in Germany and I taught private music and English lessons and I taught a lot.

Teaching is what I do.

“Nicole is a fantastic teacher! She is organized, knowledgeable, supportive and patient. I am a classical singer and voice teacher with specific goals to move to Germany and I have found that Nicole has tailored each lesson to achieve the goals that I have. Nicole provides the grammar lesson with the
add-on's of culture, music, the do's and don't's in the German culture and makes the language and lessons relevant! She also incorporates different methods of learning styles and different learning tools, adjusting to my learning style. And to add to it all, she makes it FUN! I am excited and inspired after every lesson, despite the challenges of learning a second language.

Brava Nicole! I am very excited to continue working with you!”

Haben Sie noch Fragen?  Do you still have questions?

Here are some helpful answers to questions about the Klub.

How do I know if the Klub is the right level for me?

If you are working on A1-A2* German topics like:

  • using two verbs in a sentence (and the one gets kicked to the end) or the Perfekt (present perfect)
  • the best way for you to learn vocabulary
  • Adjektivendungen (adjective endings) z.B. Unsere nette Nachbarin hat ein neues und schnelles Auto gekauft.

then the Klub is the right level for you.

*A1-A2 means the beginning and elementary stages of learning a language. Click here to read more about them on Wikipedia.

What kinds of activities will there be?

There will be word searches, crossword puzzles, easy-to-understand stories, games, vocabulary sets, listening, writing, and more. They're made by me specifically for you. And you will get to make requests!

What supplies will I need besides my computer?

Besides your spiffy internet connection, you'll need to either

  • download PDFs and use an app for writing on them OR
  • print out the PDFs.

A writing utensil is vital, and other than that, you should be set!

I've tried learning German before. Is it worth trying again?

Ja, natürlich! If you tried learning German before and it didn't work out well, consider that maybe you weren't the problem. Maybe the class you took covered too much in a short period of time or it didn't present the materials in a way that's appropriate for the way you learn. I'll be publishing activities appropriate for many different ways of learning. You might even discover a new one!

I don't have a lot of time. How much time will the activities take?

Because there will be only one activity per week, you'll easily be able to accomplish the activity. You get to work at your pace. If you don't have a lot of time, then do the exercise in the time you have. If you want to spend more time on it, you'll also be able to read a few suggestions on how to do so.

I have specific questions, can you answer them?

Yes, I can and I will! You can write a comment and ask a question, which I'll answer, however Mitglied might answer your question. Wir lernen zusammen! (We'll learn together!)

Can I request a topic or grammar exercise?

Yes, you can! I welcome requests and ideas for future activities.

What if I try it and I don't like it?

Of course I would be very sad to see you go. But if the Klub isn't right for you, you can simply cancel your membership and you pay no more. (There are no refunds because you have immediate access to the entire learning library. But if you decide it's not for you, then you can cancel and pay no more.)

I can't decide if I should join, can you spell it out for me?

Ja, the Klub is for you if any of these apply:

  • you know a little German already
  • you enjoy learning German
  • you don't have time for a class or lessons
  • your German class isn't enough and you want more
  • you live too far away from an in-person German class
  • you enjoy learning German and finding out new things about Germany, Switzerland and Austria
  • you are interested in joining other German learners for a bit of German language fun!

Nein, the Klub is not for you if:

  • you are an absolute beginner
  • you want to spend hours and hours each week working on German
  • you are looking for deep-dive information on German grammar (Zzz...)
  • you're elbow-deep in another German class
  • you've already reached an intermediate level (B1 & up)
  • you'd prefer to go down the wormhole of German language sites on the internet...

If there are any questions I haven't covered in the FAQs and you'd like to know, please email me at the Klub and I'll answer your question as soon as I can. (Except Sundays, because Sonntag ist Ruhetag.  Closed on Sundays.)
