“I love Olly’s work – and you will too!” –  Barbara Oakley, PhD, Author of New York Times bestseller A Mind for Numbers

Most German students try to learn new German  vocabulary and expressions through memorisation and by repeating stiff textbook-like phrases. This doesn’t work, and is extremely stressful for you as a learner. Why? Because there is so much to learn and it’s impossible to hold it all in your head while you’re speaking. Moreover, sentences taken from textbook often do not match what you will hear in everyday conversations. It’s also not a natural approach … native speakers don’t learn to speak with memory tricks and stiff rules, after all!

With 30-Day Mastery: Incredible Idioms! you’ll learn through example and context, just like native speakers do! The magic of learning through story is that your main focus is actually not on memorising anything… you concentrate on understanding and enjoying the story! As you’re reading the story, you will find that all of the new idioms in the text will begin to lodge themselves subconsciously in your brain. It doesn’t happen right away – in fact it may take a couple of weeks for you to feel the real effects. But by the end of this book, you’ll have a native-like command of 90 fluency-boosting idioms that will amaze you and your friends!

In this story, you will read about Gabi and Heinz, a long standing couple, who are on their way to the Oktoberfest to reunite with their friends from college, whom they have not seen for over 20 years. Gabi is really excited for the trip, while Heinz is not happy to be in the midst of so many people with beer and loud music.

The tension reaches a climax when  the friends realize that Heinz is missing! They search for him high and low, but he seems to have vanished into thin air!  When they find a blood trail leading away from where Heinz was last seen, panic ensues…

 Not yet convinced? Here are all the features you will find in this book: 

  • Short chapters of 300 words each – just read one chapter a day for 30 days!
  • A text designed specifically for students at CEFR level A2-B1
  • A detailed language overview and table of idioms so you can quickly review the meaning of the idioms in the story
  • Short daily practice exercises to practice German idioms as you go

“[Olly’s] techniques have made a world of difference. I was able to learn more in 9 months with his techniques than I did in the 6+ years in school” – Courtney Baird, successful language learner
