Super Crazy News !!

Hello everyone,

I have really, really BIIIIIG news – and you will hate it :)
Party’s over. German is Easy will cost money now.
Now you’re all like “For real????”  and I’m like “Yeaaaaahhhhhhh!!!” and you’re like “Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhh!!!” and I’m like “Yeaaaahhhhhhhhhh”…
but seriously, it was about time.

Why not free anymore???

The blog is a part time job and I want to continue and make it cooler and better and bigger and add more awesome stuff and make German easier and easier. But I got bills to pay.
So far, I tried doing it via donations and some of you, quite a few did donate, sometimes so much that it shamed me (**if you’ve donated recently or if you’re a patron on Patreon will get a free membership… I’ll email you the coming days with details, same goes for a few of you who have commented a lot**).
But overall, it wasn’t what it could be and it didn’t work so now we’ll try a good old membership model.

How does it work now?

You can read two posts per week for free…. like… really free. For zero bucks. But if you want to read more, you have to become a member. You can choose between different lengths. 1 month costs 5 Dollar, a whole year is only 30 Dollars. That’s a fair price, I think. I mean… it’s about 10 cent per article

Besides unlimited access to the archive, I’m gonna make pdfs available to members in the coming months. I just have to figure out some issues with Google.

And I’ll make more nice changes to the site, so lots to look forward to.

I know it’s hard to pay for something that was free but I really hope you understand the change and join German is Easy as a member.
Join! Now!! Jetzt ! Sofort!

(Oh and if you absolutely have no money… I still do not want to
exclude people just because they don’t have any cash. So if you’re
super broke and struggling to make ends meet… you’re welcome here.
Just send me an email and we’ll make it work. )

But wait, in an announcement like this…  aren’t there any DISCOUNTS???
Of course, and there’s not only 1, there are 4:

6 months for incredible 7 Dollars instead of 20.
This is for the earliest of the early. Just enter the following discount code
Uberearlyunicorns    Edit**: Sorry, all gone**
There are only 10 available so if the code isn’t working that means that  others were faster. But then you can try for the second one.

6 months for awesome 10 Dollars instead of 20.
To get this, just use the discount code:
Earlyunicorns  Edit**: Sorry, all gone**
There are only 20 of those deals though. If you miss it, try out the last one

6 months for okay 15 Dollars instead of 20.
The discount code is
Sortofearlyunicorns
And there are 300 of those available. And if that’s already taken, you could check for the last one… the hidden one.

12 months for friggin free.
Just enter the discount code you think I would give such a deal ;).  There are 3 such deals available.

If you didn’t get a discount… well, sorry. I hope you sign up anyway :). Here’s the link again.

So that’s it. If you have questions about anything or if you want to complain or rant and vent or cry or just say hi… leave me a comment.
Hope you … uhm… liked this post and see you next time.

Emmanuel, love the site, ready to pay for access, but why do I need a discount code? And why can’t I find one that’s not expired? You’ve earned the cash so TAKE MY MONEY!

Actually, sorry, it doesn’t work. That’s why I wrote you. It says, in red: “The discount code could not be found.” It refuses to process further. (I can’t imagine anything more reasonable than $12 for 3 months. I don’t need a discount.) Thanks, Emmanuel.

Erfolg! I tried it once again, and the trick is to delete the default characters from the discount field (they keep helpfully popping up, whether you want them or not). Danke sehr, Emmanuel. Ich finde deine Seite unglaublich hilfreich.

Ich bin jetzt ein Patreon von dir und Easy German. Beide haben mir in den letzten Jahren unheimlich geholfen. Wann wird dein Projekt mit Cari und Easy German passieren?

You’ve been more than generous with your blog and it is still quite a good deal. I look forward to joining when I return home!

Very reasonable arrangement and rates, even if the $ you use is not Namibian. I do mean that, but since you are using currency with a non-unique name it would be polite to all whose money has the same name, and admirably precise, to specify.

Thank you and those members who did a favour to me and got me an account. :) I am really grateful and very happy to continue my journey of German language!

Thanks for the great blog. I’ve been reading for about 2 years and think that what you ask for is an acceptable reimbursement for your time. I had previously paid for a subscription to fluentu when you plugged them and was rather disappointed with what they had to offer. I find your blog a much better resource. In hindsight I would have rather donated the money to you.

I look forward to your book and all future articles and developments in your language learning resource.

I was a German teacher 40 years ago but went into banking and rarely used German during that time. Now that I’m retired, I’m trying to learn it again. Your blog has been a great help and has provided superb instruction while making me smile. Also, I really enjoy the Cool Links. I don’t mind paying you to share your knowledge in such an entertaining manner. Thanks to you and your team.

I am fluent in 4 languages (well I’ve got two for free as I am bilingual :D), and having to study a 5th one for business it is not easy thing neither very enjoyable… but since I bumped into this blog I always have a laugh studying German, and finally this complicated language starts to make sense in my head.

Worth every penny!

I just found your blog a few days ago and can hardly put it down. I’ve never found anything even half as useful for really understanding word usage. Thank you for making it. I’m very happy to be a member.

My wife and I have been studying German on-line for a little over a year and we look forward to getting your posts about various German word origins. We have even found that knowing the history makes it easier to remember the correct words when translating from English to German. I hope our membership helps you to keep up the good work.

Dearest German-is-easy! I have been teaching myself German for over a year now (everyday! a little bit) and came across your blog. It is overwhelming but I truly enjoy reading it anyway , and am able to glean some helpful tips. I think I could study just one post for a month and still be learning something new…..LOL! I may need to do this!! Thanks so much for keeping this going and making it work for you. At this 2 per week will keep me in the game, but I look fwd to when I can digest (and study) more volumes of your blog. Please keep me on the list, I look forward
to catching up.
