It sounds to me like the clutch is not working properly.
This may be an adjustment problem or signs of a worn clutch.
Try selecting 5th gear and with the handbrake on let out the clutch, if the engine stalls then the clutch is probably ok and may just need adjusted. If the engine doesn't stall then your clutch is shot and unfortunately its gearbox back out to fit a new clutch.

Find a VW mechanic, those cars are known to have weak automatic and manual transmissions. You probably need a new one. Don't cheap out and buy a used one or you'll be sorry when it doesn't last. A quality rebuilt trans should have at least a 1 year warranty.
