Hey, it’s Xiaoma here!

Want to learn German?

Or maybe you’ve tried to learn German before and want to give it another try. Then you’re in the right place!

On this page, I’m going to show you how you can learn German fast. I’ll show you the method I use to go from zero to a ‘street-smart’ level in almost any language nowadays.

And most of the time, I can do that within just a few weeks.

If you pay attention, you’ll also learn how YOU can hold fun and spontaneous conversations with German speakers, in just ten weeks.

I invented this approach myself and it’s great for you if:

  • You want to speak to German people in their own language and win their respect
  • You have German heritage but can't speak any German yet
  • You want to experience German culture from the inside out

Learning to speak German will let you talk directly to the hearts of over 130 million people.

You will impress friends and strangers and put a huge smile on their faces - just like you see me do in my videos.

Sounds fun?

Then keep reading…

WHY IS SPEAKING GERMAN SO HARD?

If you’ve tried to learn German in the past you probably had a hard time.

  • You might have noticed that German has four cases and three genders
  • Then there is the tricky pronunciation, such as the "ch" sound in "Buch" or "nicht”. 
  • And why do they sometimes put the verb at the end of the sentence?

Is that why so many German learners never become fluent?

All these things play a role, but the real issue is that most learners focus on stuff that doesn't really matter at the beginning. 

They’ll go way too deep into grammar or really focus on lists of numbers, colors, clothing, professions and that kind of stuff (aka the Duolingo approach).

And by the way, this is how most language courses work. And obviously, it's important to know all these things at some point.

But it’s like building a fancy house without a foundation. Eventually, it’s going to collapse and you need to start all over again.

When that happens, students get demotivated and give up!

That’s why I learn languages like I play chess.

This approach works for me, and thousands of my students.

You can use it too, and the best thing is it works 100% from home.

In fact, I believe that it’s possible to learn to have a basic conversation in any language within just 24 hours.

Yes, 24 hours!

You probably think I’m kidding...

But I guarantee it’s possible because I do this all the time on my YouTube channel.

And trust me, I was definitely not the smartest kid in my class at school.

So what’s the secret?

HI, I'M ARIEH!

My real name is Arieh, but most people know me as Xiaoma. I run the popular YouTube channel Xiaomanyc.

Tens of millions of people watch my videos every month to see how I make connections with people from all kinds of backgrounds, by speaking to them in their language.

I’ve studied over 15 foreign languages, including German, Chinese, Spanish, Korean, French, Wolof, Maya, Italian, Indonesian, Navajo, Hindi, Punjabi, and Tibetan.

People always ask me how I do it. I get emails literally every day!

With my chess game approach, I managed to hold conversations in all these languages after just a few weeks of studying.

Since I launched my Street-Smart language courses, thousands of students from all over the world have joined and picked up a new language.

I understand that learning a language can be really boring and difficult because that’s how I experienced it at school.

That’s why I thought it was time to make language courses more practical for the real world!

And people seem to love this approach:

THE MAGIC OF MY "CHESS GAME" APPROACH

Chess players usually start the game with standard openings, like moving the pawn from E2 to E4. Then you know that you need to follow up with the Sicilian Defense.

Then there are all kinds of standard responses, and that's because those are generally recognized as the best and most common moves.

And the more you play the game, the better you have those opening moves memorized. As the game gets more complex, your skills get tested more and more by all these variants.

Do you see the similarities between playing chess and learning languages?

That’s why I always focus on these opening moves’ at the beginning.

Once you can ‘’open’’ a conversation and start speaking, you have a foundation that you can start building on.

Start with practical phrases like ‘’do you speak German?’’ or ‘’I’m learning German’’. The fancy stuff will follow later.

With this approach, you can speak a new language from the very beginning. This will give you the momentum you need to become fluent.

I’ve created a beginner conversation course just for you.

Julia from the popular YouTube channel Lingster will be your host in this course. She's one of the best German teachers on the internet!

Here she is…

And there is more.

For this course, we recorded a short, fun video series for you, with real actors in Germany.

These sketches will make your learning journey a lot of fun.

Throughout the videos, you’ll learn everything you need to have fun with 100% real conversations in German, impressing German speakers in your neighborhood and your German-speaking friends and relatives!

Your new German skills will help you strengthen your relationships with Germans and give an entirely new dimension to your life.

Trust me, you really do get a new soul with every new language you learn to speak.

The best thing?

You won’t have to travel to Germany :) 

''Taking this class in retirement was one of the best things I ever did! The class was so much fun and it was made easily understandable. And it gave us the "opening chess moves" to start a conversation when we meet native speakers. I loved every minute of it and learned so much!''

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THIS COURSE?

FOCUS ON REAL-LIFE SITUATIONS

When you practice your German with somebody, they will always ask you the same questions:

  • How come you speak German?
  • Where are you from?
  • Do you live here?

We’ll focus on the words, phrases and sentence structures that you need for your first conversations in German in practical real-life situations.

Think about situations like:

  • Ordering in a restaurant
  • Going to the airport
  • Interacting in a bar
  • Haggling at the market
  • Communicating at a bakery

Our German friends act out all these scenarios in video conversations to get you started speaking German fast. We learn grammar naturally as it comes up in the dialogues, not by memorizing a list of points.

MAKE SENTENCES FROM DAY ONE

We don’t just teach you a bunch of phrases that you need to learn by heart. You will learn patterns of speech so that you can make your own sentences in German and say whatever you want. You don’t need any prior experience!

JULIA WILL BE YOUR PERSONAL VIRTUAL GUIDE!

Like the idea of learning German with a teacher?

We’ve added walkthrough videos. Julia from the popular YouTube channel ‘Lingster’ will walk you step-by-step through all the dialogues of each lesson and give an in-depth explanation of all vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar features.

You’ll almost feel like you’re in a virtual classroom with her as your private teacher, where every single line of dialogue is clearly and simply broken down and explained. This lets me guarantee you the learning experience I want you to have!

Not only that, but you’ll be able to comment on all lesson content, and because of our passion for learning languages, not only do we read every single comment but we also usually reply!

BONUS: GET MY 7-DAY BOOTCAMP 
FOR FREE!

I know that learning German can be hard, especially if you’re starting from scratch. So here’s the deal…

If you sign up for this Street-Smart German Foundations course, we’ll also give you access to our 7-Day Magic Sentences Bootcamp for German.

In this mini-course, you’ll learn all my magical sentences.

These sentences help you get an early grasp of how the language works. They’re also incredibly practical. In my experience, these sentences represent 80% of the likely first 5 minutes of conversation you will have with a given stranger.

You can literally have entire conversations with total strangers just by knowing them, and I do so on a regular basis.

First, we teach you a few simple words. Then we start making simple sentences that gradually become more difficult. Eventually, you’ll have learned some of the “Magic Sentences” that I always learn first when studying new languages.

If you study these sentences for 10 minutes per day, you’ll have learned all of them in only one week!

This mini-course is available on the website for $29, but you’ll get it 100% for FREE!

It’s the best way to jump-start your German!

HOW MUCH WOULD IT BE WORTH FOR YOU TO HOLD CONVERSATIONS IN GERMAN?

That’s quite a hard question isn’t it?

It’s hard to put a price on the ability to speak German and transform the way you interact with German speakers.

People from all over the world are spending thousands of dollars (or pounds, or euros!) to fly to Germany to enroll in a language school.

But even those who don’t want to travel or can’t travel often end up spending over a thousand dollars to take German lessons at a local language school.

There are also online courses that often charge a premium. The real question is, do they really work? Are the courses designed in a way that will keep you motivated and make learning German fun?

My course does! 😉

And because of the huge reach I have on my social media channels I’m able to offer you a high-quality course without having to charge you thousands of dollars.

I am only asking for a small investment in yourself.

If you’re ready to put in the time, the results will pay off very quickly. That’s something I can 

guarantee!
