Support "Learn German with Stories" and boost your German skills
Become a Patron
I’ve loved Patreon ever since I discovered it in mid-2020. It gave me the chance to organize my language learning using just one platform and choosing different membership plans to work on my languages in a organized way. Receiving new content at the beginning of each week helps me to stay motivated and learn something new day by day. That’s the reason why I eventually decided to launch a Patreon page for “Learn German with Stories”. I’d be thrilled to welcome you as my Patron and if you’ve never heard about the platform, here’s some information.
What Is patreon?
Patreon.com is a platform that gives creators the opportunity to offer their content by using a subscription-style payment model. This model is a win-win for both sides: Creators maintain and increase their creative freedom while getting the salary they deserve, and their fans get to rest easy knowing that their money goes directly towards creating more of what they love.
Patreon is mainly used by solopreneurs or small companies such as language teachers, YouTubers or artists. The platform itself deducts just a small fee off a creator’s earnings so that you can be sure that you’re supporting a human being or a small group of people who will sincerely appreciate your loyalty.
Support doesn’t mean donation, though. Most creators share exclusive content with their patrons and offer them the possibility to connect in a more personal way – with the creator but patrons will also get to know each other. That’s especially the case when you decide to become the patron of a language teacher.
What are the benefits of becoming a "Learn German with Stories" patron?
As a patron, you will receive new and original materials in the form of bilingual texts, short texts and short stories with German-English vocabulary lists, audio recordings and worksheets with grammar and vocabulary exercises at the beginning of each week. There are various subscription plans so that you can choose the one which works best for you.
The content is a mixture of fiction, customs and habits, everyday life situations, current affairs and behind the scenes stories. It is best suited for students who have a level ranging from A1.2 to B2.1.
You will receive an email whenever new content is posted on Patreon and can also access all previously published materials on the Patreon website.
Signing up for a Patreon membership means having something that is somewhere in the middle between regular language lessons and self-study. You will get some structure and a motivational boost by your weekly Patreon emails and it’s affordable even if you’re on a budget.
Is it a long-term Commitment?
Patreon offers monthly or yearly memberships. Personally, I’ve always chosen a monthly subscription as it allows more flexibility. You can cancel at any time and you can also switch effortlessly between two different membership plans. Or you can take a break and come back after three months. So why not give it a try?
