We have had MANY requests to review LoMasTV as a German learning program- and I must say that this review is long overdue. We have spent some time looking through their materials, and we are pleasantly surprised at the strides that his program has made.

During it’s original inception, they were built on a slightly older platform for website design, and they didn’t have nearly as much content as they currently do. The reason this is important is because their site is now JAM-PACKED with excellent quality instructional videos, and it is not coded in HTML5. For you “non-techies” out there, this is important because you watch the videos with the translations and transcripts on your iPhone/iPad devices.

Now, on to their videos. They have hundreds of high quality videos ranging from music and interviews to news broadcasts and novela clips to help you get a well rounded exposure to the German language. They are even sorted by difficulty so that as your skills improve you can continue to push yourself in the right direction.

To give you a better idea of their content, we thought we’d just add some free samples from their site so that you can see for yourself. Please watch the videos below and keep in mind that you can click on any word and see a dictionary reference of it during the video. This is incredibly helpful! See below:

Culcha Candela – Schöne Neue Welt

Summer Cheergirl 2010 – Fotoshooting mit Riesenschlangen

Frida Gold – Zeig mir wie du tanzt

Jenny und Alena – Handball

Deutschkurs in Tübingen – Vorbereitung auf den Test

With plans allowing you to pay less than $2.00 per week (billed annually), you simply can’t find a better tool than LoMasTV to help evolve your German abilities.


Rocket German is made from the same company that made the popular and effective Rocket Spanish! Below is an excerpt from their site:

What makes Rocket German different?

We knew what worked well in our Spanish and French courses, based on the success stories we receive from our learners.

And we had learned a lot from our German language learning research.

We learned how NOT to learn German.

We learned what essential ingredients are missing from the other learn German courses on the market.

In short, we had our mission: learning German the way it should be. And that’s how Rocket German Premium was born.

Which sounds simple, but we had our work cut out for us…

Surefire German is made by the same company who made Surefire Spanish. Below is an excerpt from their site:

  1. How to instantly imprint your memory with the 1,000 most commonly-used German words. And why these 1,000 words will get you through almost any German conversation you’ll ever encounter.  Focusing your time on these “top 1,000,” slashes your learning curve to the bare-bones minimum!

  3. How to use mental pictures (your brain’s natural method of learning) to cement new German translations into your mind for good. Plus, 119 “Link Word” translations.  Once your brain links each word with the mental picture provided, it’s actually difficult to shake them out of your memory!

Learning Languages the Easy Way has been featured on CNN because of their effective teaching styles. They offer several languages, including German. The following is an excerpt from their site:

When it comes to learning a new language, there are two types of people.

The first type struggle for years before they can spit out a few coherent sentences… while the second take to a new language with ease, as if they’ve been exposed to it for years. Now, here’s where the secret comes into play.

You see, most think the folks who take on a new language in a snap are super-fast learners with some kind of “linguistic talent.” But the truth is that talents have very little to do with how well your brain grabs onto a new language!

The real secret to learning a new language lies in… Knowing What To Say At The Right Time!
