If you're interested in taking a premium Pittsburgh German course but aren't sure how to get started, Varsity Tutors is the only educational resource you need. German is one of the most important languages spoken in Europe, serving as the native language of roughly 90 million speakers across Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. It is also a part of the same Indo-European language group as English, giving native English speakers some innate familiarity with German language conventions.

That said, native English speakers studying German have a variety of new rules to learn. For instance, German has three verb conjugation classes: weak, strong, and mixed. Many German nouns are also gendered, a concept commonly found across the world's languages but quite foreign to English-speaking ears.

Many students study German to fulfill their foreign language requirement at a local high school such as Carrick High School or Brashear High School or a local college like the University of Pittsburgh. Adult learners may also study the language to prepare for a trip to Germany or to add a new dimension to their resume. No matter why you've decided to study German, Varsity Tutors can enroll you in a Pittsburgh German class to help you improve your understanding of the language. Read on to find out more information!

What topics will my Pittsburgh German course cover?

One of the biggest benefits of enrolling in a Pittsburgh German class is the opportunity to practice your German skills with a knowledgeable instructor each week. Each instructor undergoes an extensive interview and vetting process to ensure that they not only have an excellent command of German but understand how to effectively share that knowledge with students like you. Practice is the only way for English speakers to get comfortable with German vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structure, so why not do it with an expert?

You can also practice your written German skills during your class. While spoken German has a variety of dialects depending primarily on where it is spoken, written German is actually fairly uniform. Your instructor can teach you how to outline what you plan to say before you start composing to help keep you on the right track. Not only does working from an outline produce superior organization, but you can also jot down German words and phrases you'll need so that you don't get stuck trying to remember them in the moment. When you're finished, your instructor can review your work and identify any areas that could be improved moving forward.

You might also want to study the particulars of German grammar during your course. For example, there is some rote memorization involved in remembering which nouns are masculine, which are feminine, and which are neuter. Your instructor may teach you a mnemonic device to help you remember the most common words so that you don't need to wrack your brain every time you use them.

How is your Pittsburgh German course structured?

Each of our classes consists of an expert instructor leading a group of students on our live virtual platform. Our platform is an online classroom that you may sign into from anywhere with a strong internet connection, giving you the benefits of taking a physical class without the logistical headaches of getting to one. You can see and hear everyone else in the room, so asking for help is as simple as raising your hand. If you feel like you need personalized attention to overcome a particular learning obstacle, your instructor is also available for private study sessions outside of normal class hours.

Contrary to what you may believe, studying in a collaborative environment also offers a variety of advantages over going it alone. Hearing your classmates speak German gives you experience with a variety of different accents and dialects, more accurately representing what it would be like to listen to German speakers in their home country. You can also help your new friends if they don't understand something, reinforcing your own command of the material in the process. Working in a group also enables you to split the associated costs, delivering tremendous value for your money.

We know how busy you are, so we've done everything in our power to make attending classes more feasible. For example, multiple sessions run concurrently to make it easier to find a fit for your schedule. We also offer two and four-week class options to make it easier to find something you can commit to. New sessions start every month, so you never need to wait too long to get started.
