Take your German to the next level
With our all-in-one Membership
Being a language learner myself, I’ve experimented with all kind of things, from traditional textbooks to expensive video courses. From studying on my own to learning 1:1 with a teacher. I ended up liking membership sites with optional group classes, access to a teacher and the possibility to share ups and downs with other students best. I find them most useful and best value for money because new content is added regularly and there are normally various membership options I can choose from and switch between, depending on how much time I want to spend on language learning in a certain month. Well, this is exactly what the German with Stories Club is like and I’m really looking forward to welcoming you in our member area.
