Guaranteed Success in Less Time
Founder Director, Chrissi Barton, will be using the Total Fluency Method to learn 5 years worth of German in 5 months starting this September.
We hope Chrissi’s journey will inspire students all over the world to study languages, to understand that learning a language the right way can come with guaranteed success and does not have to commit you to hours of memorising verb tables and struggling with grammar.
Additionally most students will expect that even if they are “A”-grade language student they could complete the GCSE course and still not be able to chat comfortably in their new language. At Total Fluency we are committed to ensuring students get not only great grades but also great language skills – after all, it is these skills that will allow you to:
- Chat with your friends in a new language
- Make friends when you are travelling or meet new people who speak that language
- Get a job in a new country, or where language skills are required in an international team or market
- … really enjoy your new language!
We will be making regular reports on Chrissi’s progress, in fact, Chrissi will be blogging about her experiences; what’s difficult and how to notice and celebrate your successes. The Total Fluency team will also be posting weekly video reports on our YouTube channel (see our latest videos above).
A german GCSE includes a vocabulary of approximately 2000 words and 1000 grammar and conjugation rules. With 9 schools months in a year and 5 years of secondary language lessons, an average student will learn between 60-70 words/rules per month to complete the curriculum.
To complete the challenge, Chrissi will be learning 600 words/rules per month whilst holding down a full-time job.
That’s 20 new words/rules each day!

I’ll be posting my triumphs and my failures as I journey my way through the German GCSE curriculum using our awesome Total Fluency Method… and I would love to hear from you, so please do post your thoughts, questions, and support!
