How to use German Recordings Effectively

Let me offer you the way to work with the files that I find to be the best in general. Please adjust this method to your needs after you tried out all of the steps at least once. With new materials you can start practicing alone, and we will make sure your intonation and pronunciation are great in the class. 

General recommendations on practicing German speech with audio recordings and corresponding test files.

The best recurrence for the lessons, according to my experience, is 2-3 times a week:

  • enough time for your brain to process and connect new data,
  • 2-3 nights of sleep to commit the material to the long-term memory;
  • such continuity prevents forgetting and fragmentation of knowledge.


A double academic hour meetings will allow for deeper language immersion, and can save you time.

An "academic hour" is defined as 50 minutes. A double-hour lesson will last 1 hour and 45 minutes, including a 5-minute rest break, which is a perfect duration for maintaining deep concentration.

Frequency and duration.


To make sure you receive my full attention, I try to have only 2-3 students at the same time period. We usually meet during the day, from around 9 AM to 9 PM.


If you need to reschedule a lesson, please do it 48 hours prior, minimum - 40 hours.
