This is the flagship course from Dr. Bogard's Time to Learn German school, offered here at Udemy at a special price. This is a professional, effective, full semester video course that makes it possible for you to have a conversation in German much faster than in any traditional classroom. You won't get a podcast course with the professor lecturing, while you stare at a static image that's been turned into a video. You won't be falling asleep either, because you will be engaged in challenging work, that moves along at the pace you choose. You will watch Dr. Bogard, and complete your lessons, as she walks you step by step through the process of acquiring German. The entire course should take you about 12-16 weeks to complete.
When taught in person at a private university this course can cost as much as $1,730 per credit hour. Since this is a full 4 credit semester course, it's worth well over $3,000. Now On Udemy you get it with free life-time updates, a money-back guarantee, and access to your instructor at just under $500 for years to come. With an opportunity like this, it's a great time, and a great place, for you to learn German!
What you can expect:
The goal at TimetoLearnGerman is to help you learn German, and end the course being able to maintain a 5 to 15 minute German conversation (i.e. be fluent) with a native speaker of German. Fifteen minutes may not sound like much, but for a beginner to speak using a new language for even 5 minutes without reverting to English, or standing frozen and silent like a deer in headlights, is an amazing accomplishment. Some of Dr. Bogard's most enthusiastic beginners have even been able to speak German for up to 30 minutes. Simply amazing!
This can happen when you are highly motivated (by fear, hope, love, challenge, etc.), and spend 30 minutes every day following this unique step by step method. You will be following a 'polyglot-style" learning path, and performing the same techniques that many multilingual students use to give themselves a beginner's level fluency skill in the time it takes to finish just one college course. Remember- most students, who study a foreign language for years in school, NEVER become fluent speakers of that language, so 16 weeks of 30 minutes of daily practice is really amazing!
Dr. Bogard's research project helped to uncover the secrets of polyglots.
Last year Dr. Bogard finished her two-year research project on polyglots. Polyglots are people from all areas of the world, who have taught themselves how to speak many languages. Her research objective was to discover how they are able to do this themselves, by studying their attitudes, beliefs, and study behaviors related to their foreign language learning. The study consolidated the behaviors common to the group she was following, and embedded those techniques into a new learning method. From there she created a new curriculum to use with her own students. It's the kind of learning journey that anyone with a very strong need or desire to learn a foreign language can follow, but it requires a knowledgeable guide to show the exact manner and order to the steps . This course does just that: walks you carefully through the fastest and most effective, step-by-step foreign language learning method based on the best tips and tricks that many of the world's most successful polyglots use to help themselves learn to speak 8, 12 and even 20+ different languages. Dr. Bogard refers to it as her "faster fluency" method.
You want to learn German, because it's an influential language in the world of business and economics, so speaking German often opens income producing opportunities. Did you know that Germany has become the economic envy of Europe? And if you are able to speak German, you could earn $128,000 extra over the course of your career, according to MIT scientist Albert Saiz. His research showed that knowing German is financially worth twice as much as French, and nearly three times as much as Spanish. Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein are gorgeous countries with great public transportation systems, that make it easy to explore so you can bring more adventure into your life. Once you are there you can explore the beautiful landscapes and historical cities with ease. Learning German also makes it easier for you to make new friends, who are eager to introduce you to the best food and drinks you can imagine! You can easily fall in love with this country, the people and the language. You would be smart to choose German as your next language. It's waiting for you now.
German is also the language Dr. Bogard has been teaching in a traditional classroom for more than 20 years. Being online now, she has more opportunities to reach new learners, and help them with her cutting-edge curriculum that shows you how to harness the power of people on the Internet to become your new friends and support network.
You are getting her best!
Having concluded two rounds of testing this new "Faster Fluency" online method with her own classroom students, she knows that having more students means meeting more diverse needs, so lessons are updated on a regular basis. The flagship course you purchase now will include all these changes, for the life of the course. Dr. Bogard's course also includes interaction with her through the discussion forum, should you have questions and need a helping hand.
If you have trouble, or are unhappy about an experience in this course, PLEASE tell Dr. Bogard all about it in the discussion forum. She checks it regularly and her first priority is to help you solve any challenges, or respond to your advice about something that would make the course better for you. Dr. Bogard is adamant that you do NOT leave a bad review and quit! She believes that almost all problems can be solved when you both work together on it. Taking a moment to share your thoughts in the discussion area is always appreciated and helps build a more rewarding experience for you. Both positive and negative comments inspire a bigger discussion, which can lead to a better course to benefit all. This course is constantly adjusted, improved and expanded based on feedback from Dr. Bogard's students. You are in a 'living' course, and these new changes are always included with your purchase. We thank you in advance for your active participation in the discussion forum, and please leave a positive 5 star review when you can. Anything less than 5 stars is judged a failure, so please post a comment in the discussion forum, if you feel like you can't leave a 5 star review. Dr. Bogard will make every attempt to support your learning success.
We believe that this very carefully constructed "Faster Fluency" method is unlike any other offered in any physical or online school. We promise it's great, and it comes with a money back guarantee during the first 30 days.
What is TTLG?
Time to Learn German (TTLG) is Dr. Bogard's online school for anyone who NEEDS to be fluent in German fast. The only requirement for success is that you absolutely must have a burning desire or serious need to become fluent fast. Not just a "wouldn't it be nice to speak German" attitude, because that's not enough motivation to make you maintain a daily 30 minute practice; either as one chunk or by breaking it down into three 10 minutes sessions each day. High motivation and making a small, daily time commitment are the only prerequisites for purchasing any of the courses at TTLG. It's also very important that you follow Dr. Bogard's learning "recipe" exactly as the instructions say. She can't make any guarantees of a 'delicious' success, if you change or omit the ingredients, and alter the 'cooking' directions. If learning to speak could be done in an easier and even quicker way, she would be doing that with you already!
What this course is not.
Please keep in mind that this is not a tutoring course, so you can't turn in your own work and have Dr. Bogard correct it for you, or personally tutor you. But she does show you how to get free help online, and there are professional German tutors on Udemy to help you even more.
She's also available to you in the class discussion board, in case you have questions about the course or the materials.
This course is very specific in it's purpose: to teach you how to get yourself into German conversations as quickly as possible. However, if you need to pass a specific German language exam, then a different course might be better for you. In Dr. Bogard's physical classrooms, she prepares students for various exams and the strategies and methods used are particular to each. With your positive support, she might bring these courses to Udemy in the future, but that's not what this first TTLG course here is. Although you do learn all basic foreign language skills, it's designed to teach you oral skills as thoroughly and quickly as possible. Of course, if your exam includes a speaking evaluation, then this course will help you do better on that part!
What do you get in this course?
Each course is a full semester (4 month) class, but you can do it faster or slower. Dr. Bogard helps you master one spectacular conversation, and along that path, she helps you understand all the basics of German grammar, and helps you learn to read and write in German with the help of native speakers. She also includes cultural lessons and social skills development- like telling a joke in German. The final capstone project is you speaking with real native Germans! This is an exhilarating, challenging, and unforgettable experience that will make you feel GREAT! Dr. Bogard walks you through every step of this entire process with short and simple videos, quick quizzes to make sure you are following the lessons exactly, and specific exercises that she saw polyglots use successfully.
When you finish the first course, you can move on to the next course in this series (planned for release in August 2015) that revolves around a new conversation, a grammar review to deepen your understanding of the structure of the German language, and new cultural topics. You will easily move faster in subsequent TTLG courses, because you will already be familiar with the steps in the "Faster Fluency" method you learn here.
Dr. Bogard's aim is to help you build your fluency one conversation at a time, as a huge chunk, instead of using lots of phrases from many different topics at the same time, which is overwhelming for beginners, and doesn't result in a finished product.
Did you have German in high school or college?
If you've had a German course in the past, we welcome you with open arms! We believe you will enjoy Dr. Bogard's new method and this great learning approach, because it's super organized and easy to follow, with lots of videos where you can see her, and listen to her, as she leads you through your lessons. You will get faster and better results than in any of your old classes.
Why learn from Dr. Bogard?
Eva's first language is German, but she was born in New York city to an American-German dad and a German mom who spoke no English at the time. She started learning English on her first day of Kindergarten. Since then, she has pursued her own foreign language learning by studying French in Paris, St. Malo and Tours, France. She has been a former university adjunct instructor at three different universities, and is currently a certified practicing high school classroom teacher with more than two decades of experience teaching German. Her doctoral degree, from the University of South Florida in Tampa, is in Second Language Acquisition and Instructional Technology. Her Master's is in Foreign Language Education, and her Bachelor's is in German. Foreign language learning has been part of her entire life, so she can confidently call herself an expert in this field of foreign language learning. She feels very passionate about showing as many people as she can how they can be independent, successful German students using her "Faster Fluency" system.
Dr. Bogar'ds educational background, teaching experience, and love of learning translate into courses that are not only effective, but also academically strong. Each course in the TTLG series is the length of a complete 3 credit, semester college class, that would cost you many hundreds of dollars, if taken at a college. Most of them use traditional classroom methods, which are unlikely to result in you being able to speak fluently by the end of a course. She believes that the way teachers are trained to teach in a traditional classroom setting, and the unforeseen challenges that are inherent in a classroom with one teacher and many students, result in slow progress. Her unique "Faster Fluency" method", based on extensive research on how today's successful polyglots teach themselves, is available for you here and now.
It's time to start now.
You benefit in other ways too by purchasing a TTLG course now. Since these classes are offered outside the university, you can give yourself the luxury of choosing how fast or slow you complete the course. You are also in control of your learning, by replaying video and audio lessons, rereading lectures, and having access to an expert, who wants you to succeed. Dr. Bogard has also completed an international training program in adult education, so she knows how you need to learn.
You will not only learning the basics of every part of the structure of the German language, but you are also acquiring reading and writing skills, and the ability to understand and adapt your behavior to fit into German culture, not to mention the main goal of being able to have a conversation with other speakers of German.
This course is a great value: rich content, an expert instructor, a unique and faster learning method, the highest quality of research-based education, and you own it along with instructor support for life! The more courses you do in Dr. Bogard's Time to Learn German school, the stronger your language skills become, and the more fun and opportunity you bring into your life. Completion of all lessons also comes with a certificate to add to your professional portfolio.
