Private and group classes with online German teachers

We know from experience that a mix of expert tutoring and self-paced study is how you’ll learn to speak German with confidence.

That’s why Busuu offers you both – in one, neat package! Just like an online German school, but with more enjoyable classes and homework.

Get started by working on your spoken German in a Live Lesson. Then, revise everything you’ve learned in your downtime with Busuu’s award-winning German course content.

Your burning questions, answered

What exactly are German Live Lessons?

Our German teachers offer both 1:1 and group lessons.

Private lessons are 30-minute 1:1 sessions with a teacher of your choice.

Group Lessons are interactive, online 45-minute classes. Up to 5 learners can join, and they’re led by one of Busuu’s expert German teachers. By the end of each lesson, you’ll have learned something new – and be a bit closer to reaching your language goals.

What are the benefits of taking these online German classes with Busuu?

There are too many to count! First off, you learn a language to speak it, right? We design our German lesson plans to make sure you spend as much time practising your speaking skills as possible, with plenty of guidance from one of our vetted, online German teachers.

We also know it can be daunting to speak German out loud for the first time – but that’s exactly why practising with others is so beneficial!

Do I know enough German to attend? Will I find these online German classes hard?

Even if you’ve just started learning German, you know enough. Turning up to an German class online can feel like a big step – but we know you’re ready!

We have different German classes to cater to different levels – at the moment, we have lesson content available for A1, A2 and B1 learners – in other words, for beginner, elementary and intermediate learners.
