Have you wanted to learn German for a while and are finally ready to get serious?
Or perhaps you’ve started learning German with Duolingo, Rosetta stone, etc., but find they’re not teaching you the ‘bigger picture’ of how German actually works.
Sometimes even finding a good German class locally can be challenging, though.
So, I created two resources to help guide you:
The UNLV has a larger German department and offers a major and minor in German as well as a certificate in translation (not something you run into at many universities).
Furthermore, they do also offer a study abroad program with their site in Lüneburg, Germany.
I’m not aware of anyone teaching privately in the Vegas area. You may be able to find one through various nation-wide platforms but those can be pretty hit or miss.
Even though Las Vegas doesn’t have many options for learning the German language, the German American Social Club of Nevada is very active and has numerous activities throughout the month that help carry on German traditions and culture. They welcome both German and non-German speaking individuals to join them.
Event’s include: Saturday dinners, game nights, and more. Plus, their yearly headliner vent: Oktoberfest.
If you happen to attend the UNLV, participate in their German club! They hold regular Stammtische to practice speaking German.
This place is an experience. With their impressive Bavarian styled exterior and interior, live German music, and festive atmosphere, they’re certainly trying to recreate a German experience.
The food is sold as German but is fairly Americanized, unfortunately. Though, unless you’re in Germany, there aren’t a whole lot of other options.
Now we’re talking. This place isn’t trying to put on a show, they’re interested in making great authentic German food. So, if that’s what you’re craving, this is your place in Vegas.
View their menu to see their selection of Schnitzel’s, Wurst, Frikadelle, red cabbage, and (can it truly be!) Knödel.
I’ve taught for years at a university, at a language school, and privately. I took all of my teaching experience and combined it into a 3-Step German learning process. Best of all, the 1st step is completely free.
