Resources for Learning German Online

Here are all the resources that I have personally used so far to study German, and found to be helpful!

Online Asynchronous Course: Spoken German with Susanne Richter

This course can be done on your own time (I put in 15-45 minutes a day for about a month to complete the course) and is a great way to keep yourself on track with a teacher that really knows what she is doing.


Mobile App: Innovative Language's GermanPod101

I love that you can use this app on your browser or phone, it has useful dialogues that you can listen to and/or read, a handy flashcard section, and you can skip around to whatever topics are most useful to you.


Mobile App: Mondly German

An alternative to Duolingo, not as pretty design, but much more efficient language learning.


Mobile App for Vocabulary: Drops

Fun way to keep up your vocabulary.


Tutors: italki

A MUST when studying any language. There are lots of great German teachers on here...Even though classes are on skype, I was still happy to find a tutor based in Vietnam, so that we could easily work in my Asia timezone.


Reading Practice: Lingq

Wow, where has this site been all my life? The site lets you click on words not only to get definitions, but to file them away as "known" or "need to review". It then remembers those words for all future texts you read, including texts you import yourself, although it also has hundreds of great texts that have been pre-vetted for the different levels. It takes a bit of clicking around to get used to the interface, but trust me, it is worth it.
