SPEAK FULLY CONVERSATIONAL GERMAN in 90 Days, Utilising C.C.I. Method Without Time-Consuming Homeworks, Tedious Grammar Exercises or Million Memorisations. 


To go from beginner to speaking German in 3 months you have to realise how you learned your native language...

So what did you do as a 3-year old kid learning your own language? Did you memorise some grammar definitions? Did you use Duolingo? Did you do some fill-in-the-blank grammar exercises? Did you use Rosetta Stone or grammar explanations from Youtube "language teachers" or memorised a list of random words?

If none of it is what you did when you were 2, 3, or 4-year old then why are you doing it now? After all don't we always say how amazing babies are at language learning...  So wouldn't it make sense to distill exactly what kids do when learning languages. Extract these pricnciples and apply it to our own situations? To acquire German as kids do with...

Live one on one per Zoom classes with Comprehensible Input Method which is how you learned your native language as a kid

Here’s the thing, to be able to speak German... your speech has to become automatic in your head. 

But traditional language classes do not prepare you for automating your speech. They are focused on passing some exam which is OK if you need the paper, but useless if you need to SPEAK German on the streets with Natives. Because...

on exams you have time to think,but on streets not

They keep preparing you for these tests, but even if you pass the test... it still doesn’t mean that your speech is automated. During exams you have time to think, on the streets of Zurich not so much. That’s why even though you know some theory about the grammar rules and some words, when somebody speaks to you in German you don’t know how to respond. You don't understand or you are SUUUUUPER   -    S     .    L     .    O  .  W. 

You talk like a 2-year-old

Or as if you just had a stroke. It's like 2 of you. One that speaks and the other that monitors your grammar. You think waaay too long and people lose their patience and switch to English. Or YOU switch to English because you feel ashamed...

The Real Problem is that...Even German native teachers are not aware how they learned their own language and teach us in a way completely different to 

what they did as kids... 

Very often we think it's our age, talent or language gene that we are missing, but the real problem is that we are being taught competely different to what works...

Your Average native german instructor are often wrong

They teach us in a completely different way to what they did when they were kids acquiring their native German language. Because of the importance of grammar they assume that this is how they learned and how we should learn. And yes grammar is important, but the way how we get it into our brains is not through explicit grammar instructions.


Your very German teachers didn't study Grammar when they were 3,4 or 5 years old

In fact, no child has ever studied grammar, including me, including you. How? We couldn't even read. What we did was we LISTENED to lots and lots of stories, commands, anecdotes, and simple daily Language. All this combined is called Comprehensible Input [C.I.]

Through repetitions heard in contexts we as kids started to pick up grammar patterns, structures and vocabulary, not through explicit grammar instructions. Your parents, uncles, and grandparents didn't talk to you about plus quant perfektum when you were a 4 year-old... And this is the real problem adults when learning 2nd languages are forced to skip the most important period.

The listening period. The acqusisition period. Sometimes called a silent period where child speaks little bit, but mainly listens out which laters surges fluency.

Hi. My name is Peter Drotar and I became a polyglot almost by accident...


I learned to speak 8 languages, some fluent, some at comfortable conversational level. But I have very embarrassing thing to admit. I had a 8 years of German classes during my childhood at my school back home in Slovakia and I failed it completely. You might say "what's so embarrassing about that Peter?"

After all most of the people never end up speaking any foreign language at school, certainly none of my ex-classmates. None of them speak German now, even if they passed some exams.

How about you?


Did you have a German, French or Spanish class at your high school?
Do you or some of your old classmates speak it fluently? Probably not. So there's no reason to be embarrassed, right? Well in my case it was a bit different because half of those 8 years I've spent in my mom's class who's a German language teacher back home in Slovakia. I know, how's that even possible, right? Well what I discovered about 7 years after I graduated, in the summer of 2009 when I moved to Spain for summer job was that...


I Didn't Fail. Language Classes Failed me...

They failed my classmates and are probably failing you too! You see after 3 months working on the island of Menorca I was already conversational in Spanish, something I didn't achieve in 8 years of traditional German classes. Huh?

In that summer I got so hooked on languages that I went off to travel the Europe spending few months here and there, working simple jobs in bars and restaurants and ended up speaking Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese, English, German and Russian.

So what was the difference? Why after studing English and German at the school I didn't speak them? You mean the teachers, your mom f.e. failed you? No, not really. I mean the whole system. You see, the teacher is FORCED to follow the system, but nobody ever questions that system.

 
The system tells the teachers (like my mom) to prepare students for passing some exams. Concerned more about writing and reading words in isolation, than about speaking... because our written grades outweighed the speaking. Getting meaningless grades and papers from meaningless exams, content of which was forgotten 3 days later.

It was (and still is) not designed to prepare you to speak the German language. As if the Swiss or German people on the streets of Zurich cared about us (internationals) being able to recite some rules about plus quantum perfectum, as if that job interviewer cared about that B2 certificate on the CV... If we can't understand or answer him in German.

Polyglots have been saying this for years

It was only around 2012 when I first started to research many polyglots who speak 5, 10, or 15 languages and many of their's stories were almost carbon copy of mine.

Benny lewis - fluent in 7 and conversational in many others

Runs the blog fluentin3months.com. He had German for 5 years in his high school and just like me he failed, until he moved to Spain and learned Spanish. He too traveled the world with the mission to learn as many languages as he can, he's in double digits now.  

Gabriel Wyner 10+Languages

“I had a terrible experience learning Hebrew and Russian in high school. I didn’t actually learn anything, which seems to be a common experience...”

Gabriel Wyner is now fluent in 8 languages. He's the author of Fluent Forever. Even Tim Ferris author of 4HWW and countless other polyglots wrote the same thing, you can't learn languages in traditional classrooms.

bUT why?

Sir Ken Robinson - the speaker of the most watched Ted Talk ever - used to say that most traditional curriculums (including languages) were designed around the industrial revolution, and remain practically unchanged til today. The way they teach foreign languages in Slovakia, is not much different than let's say in UK, USA or Italy.

Grammar drills, endless testing and so on... everything geared towards the tests and grades. Did you do that too at your school? And are you still following the advice that has a literally failure built in it, as I was?

During those 8 years at school I always wondered why almost nobody ends up speaking German language. From 2009 - 2015 during my travels I discovered 3 main reasons or mistakes... why it's so incrediby difficult to learn German with traditional approach even if having good teachers.

My 3 Aha Moments started

on the beach in Menorca...


1.NO MORE CATEGORIES BECAUSE NO HUMAN SPEAKS IN CATEGORIES

Most courses teach you grammar in chunks of themes. You learn adverbs and qualifiers today, the subjunctive tomorrow, the progressive the day after that. Most of the time, you’re just confused.

You never get to make make free-flowing sentences full of most frequent vocab. on autopilot, and if you do manage to speak at all, it feels unnatural and stilted and super-slow where you have to monitor your grammar at each step instead of just fast automated speech.

Not only is this antiquated method of teaching grueling for the students, but it’s horrible for the teachers as well. You’d be amazed how many teachers (including my mom) hate grammar-based methods.

Yet, they have to teach it, because it is part of the curriculum and grades are based on those standardised tests.

2. GRAMMAR-BASED METHODS NEVER WORK

If it did work, millions of people in UK, USA, Italy, France, Slovakia etc. would learn a second language at school. Yet, very few people are able to use their classroom German to communicate. In fact, if you have tried to learn German already and failed, it’s not your fault, at all. 

The fault lies in the ineffective methods that you have been exposed to. Studies show that these grammar-based methods of teaching language fail 95% of the time. Let this number really sink.

3. AUTOMATING GERMAN IN YOUR BRAIN

If you are a beginner, learning more grammar may even make your communication worse. With too much analysis of grammar you become hesitant when you speak.

Your mind focuses on rules instead of flowing along with the conversation. Fortunately, there is an easier way. You may be wondering, “but I already know a lot of German words and I can’t communicate gar nichts (at all)”. 

The fault lies in the methods. German words are usually taught in lists. The lists are based on a theme. This is a really easy and fast way to build a German course. But it is next to useless for communicating. I guess those courses make sense for the school’s business interests, however, as a way for you to...

Connect with people in Zurich in German with traditional approach? Forget about it!

Here’s what usually happens with word lists. First day you learn words related to a theme e.g. animals. So you learn the German words for goat, pig, donkey, horse, saddle, bridle, tiger, lion, zoo, etc. Next day’s theme is furniture: bed, sofa, table, chair, armchair, cupboard, toy box etc.


If you learn 10 words a day then after three days 10+10+10 = 30 words. Now you know 30 words. That’s better than 3 days ago, but can you go out and communicate in Zurich world? Not really. 


What would you say? Dog cat armchair or pig saddle sofa? This is the most powerful secret for your successful communication in German. Instead of learning thematic words-lists that make you sound like a cave man, you discover patterns from freqeuntly repeated vocabulary in conversations that multiply your German. 

So How is this different?

We use a completely new 3 Stage System

To speak German, English, French, etc. at Conversational Fluency Level in 90 days

1

Step 1: Filling your brain with German content

- Learning the 500 most frequent/essential words will provide a strong foundation for understanding and forming sentences in everyday conversations.

- Visual descriptions and storytelling help to create mental associations and context for the vocabulary, making it easier to remember and use in conversation.

- By exposing the brain to a variety of German content, it will naturally begin to recognize patterns in grammar, sentence structure, and common phrases, which will aid in developing conversational skills.

2

Step 2: Developing speech reflexes (through - no shame - option questions)

- Practicing concrete words (nouns, verbs, adjectives) will help expats build a solid vocabulary base and improve their ability to describe objects, actions, and emotions in German.

- Abstract words (conjunctions, prepositions, etc.) are essential for connecting ideas and forming more complex sentences, which is crucial for achieving conversational mastery.

- Time-gainers, connectors, and transitions are important for maintaining the flow of conversation and giving the speaker time to think and formulate their thoughts in German, making conversations smoother and more natural.

3

Step 3: Your Mastery of every-day German language

- Mastering the use of past tense is important for expats to be able to share their experiences, tell stories, and understand the experiences of others in German.

- Mastery of the present tense is essential for discussing current events, expressing opinions, and engaging in everyday conversations with native speakers.

- Mastering the future tense allows expats to discuss plans, make predictions, and engage in more complex conversations about potential future events or situations. This is important for fully integrating into the local culture and forming deeper connections with native speakers.

Zulma Ferreyra

Hospital Nurse

Speak English? I thought forget it. Not possible for me.

Before I thought languages are not for me. I struggled with English for decades and thought it's impossible for me, but now I can speak, talk, write and read in English. I can't believe it.

Marcos Perches

Headchef Oro D'Napoli

For 5 years I wasn't able to speak German, now after only 40 hours I started to have conversation and speak German

I had a lot of problems here in Zürich because I couldn't speak German. Suddenly I was offered a position as a Headchef, but only if I was able to speak German. Fast. And now I can.

Juliette Tirado

Head of Sales

My French neighbor got shocked when I started to speak with her in laundry room in French after 2 months of acquisition.

I thought polyglots have a “special gene” they wake up and speak another language, but now I can learn like them!

faq

How many days or hours?

It's personalised plan to fit your schedule with 100 hours that should fit 3 months period. In some cases we can extend the period to use these 100 hours in 4-6 months.

Online or in-person? 

Live. One on One per Zoom.

why does it work so well? 

Because you learn exactly like you learned your native language. We use visuals to engage your visual memory combined with hearing repetitions in spaced out manner without any anxiety because in first weeks we ask you close-ended questions only. Multiple option questions are important because they lower the anxiety of the student and help him/her to start talking from Day 1 and keep receiving Input from the teacher.

Are you the teacher Peter? 

No. For German we only use native speakers. But these native teachers (unlike in traditional schools) are trained in the C.I. method that many polyglots use to be conversational in a new language in 3 months. It's the exact method that helped me to learn 7 languages. In fact, the method works so well that many of my students learn even faster than I did... simply because when I was acquiring new languages I did it through trial and error and now after almost a decade I can separate what works (from what doesn't) and deliver it to them.

About Peter Drotar

After studying German at school for 8 years, I still couldn’t speak it! When I arrived in Zurich I couldn’t mix with the locals! I absolutely needed to learn the language so that I didn’t feel like an outsider!

My shame drove me to search endlessly for a better way of learning. Believe me, learning languages was not easy for me at the beginning… I struggled! Eventually I discovered what I had suspected all along: the problem was not me, but the methods I was using.

Once I discovered what’s really important for communication, (you’ll be amazed at how much of what is normally taught actually gets in the way of communication) and how to best use the mind for rapid learning, I acquired not only German, but Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian and Russian too!

I am now a very successful multi-language speaker. But the main reason I have a lot to offer you is simply this: I have been where you are now. If you have ever had a tough time learning a language, we can help – and we are here for you!
