About the FSI Learn German - Lessons by Email Course

There are 2 parts to this course, over 330 pages with hours of corresponding audio recordings.

These lessons use TRADITIONAL LEARNING methods, and although a little dated they still provide a very thorough and indepth look at how the German language works. We would like to modernise them at some stage, to incorporate some of the more modern, memory-enhancing techniques used in the 200 Words a Day! courses. These are actually a perfect complement to the FSI courses, as they will allow you to fill a lot of the gaps in your vocabulary learning.

Course 1 consists of 12 LESSON UNITS which we have divided into 2 PARTS. Each part will be sent to you in two lots of 7 emails.

FSI Learn German Course Volume 1.

  1. Part 1 - Introduction, Units 1 - 6, including a vocabulary section at the end of each Unit
    (6 free German lessons by email sent every 3 days)
  2. Part 2 - Units 7 - 12, including a vocabulary section at the end of each Unit
    (6 German lessons emailed free every 3 days)
When you've finished Units 1-6, register for 2nd Part for Units 7 to 12.
(You can, of course register for both parts of the FSI German Course at the same time).

We do recommend you take your time... there is a lot of information to absorb.

Each German lesson varies between 20 to 30 pages of written pdf format, helping you to learn German from the beginning.

We do this to ensure that people are using the lessons that they download, rather than just downloading all the lessons at once, and then not using them. Downloading uses a great deal of bandwidth with our Internet Service Providers (and costs us!).
