How long does it take to learn German?


Due to belonging to the same West Germanic group of the Indo-European language family as English, German is one of the easiest languages to learn by fluent English speakers. According to the FSI (Foreign Service Institute) of the US government, an English speaker would need about 750 class hours or 30 weeks of practice to become fluent in German.

Contrary to German’s reputation of being one of the hardest languages to learn, this grading scale used by the US government rates it as easier to learn than languages such as Indonesian, Polish, Turkish, Icelandic, Finnish or Greek. Thus German is not as hard to learn as many may think.

However, the data from the FSI is not 100% valid for every individual. Your progress can be influenced by a lot of different factors like:

consistency – if you don’t study every day and take long pauses between learning sessions, you can easily forget what you’ve learned so far;
learning method – language learning apps like Mondly can speed up the process a lot compared to traditional learning techniques;
determination – if you enjoy the learning process, your brain can prove to be more open to “collaborate”.
