In my last post, I talked about Instagram accounts that can help you learn German language. But Instagram is not the only tool that you can use to improve your language skills for free. Youtube is another great source where you can find thousands of videos dedicated to German language. In this post, I want to share with you some of my favorite Youtube channels for learning German.

Easy German is one of the most popular Youtube channels for learning German and for a good reason. They create unique and entertaining content that makes learning German fun. My favorite videos on the Easy German youtube channel are the ones where they go to the streets and ask people different questions. This way you can hear real German language and learn some colloquial expressions. German and English subtitles are included in every video, so you can follow the conversation even if you are a beginner.
Jenny teaches German on Skype and produces free content on youtube for German learners. She has made videos on all possible grammar and vocabulary topics for the A1-C1 levels. Her vlogs are a great opportunity to practice listening comprehension.
Anja is also a German teacher and her videos are really fun to watch because of her joyful personality. She speaks very clearly and translates German phrases to English, so her videos are especially suitable for beginners.
I love how Katja explains German grammar. Her “storytime” videos are great for intermediate and advanced learners.
Videos on this channel are great for practicing listening comprehension. It is best suited for intermediate and advanced learners because there is no translation to English.
Herr Antrim makes videos about German grammar and vocabulary for beginner and intermediate learners. His videos are very creative and interesting to watch.
On Learn German channel, you will find videos about different grammar and vocabulary topics. I find this channel especially good for beginners to learn basic vocabulary and grammar rules.
Youtube is a great tool to use when learning German. It is free and easy to access and can help you to improve your listening skills and expand your vocabulary. But unfortunately, just watching Youtube videos won’t help you to get better at speaking German. You have to practice speaking in order to improve your German, so try to find someone you can speak German with. It can be a friend, teacher or language exchange partner. I like to use Italki because you can easily find language exchange partners as well as take formal or informal lessons on the platform. I’ve been using Italki as a teacher and a student for 2 years and have seen great improvement after I started taking conversation classes with native speakers.
These were my favorite youtube channels for learning German. Do you know any other must-watch channels for all German learners? Share them in the comments!
