Learning German was your New Year's Resolution? (Berlin/Prenzlauer Berg)
QR Code Link to This Post
... ask yourself now: Did you actually begin?? Corona put everyone out of the game for more or less long time. If it was your plan, you couldn't begin but want to, continue reading and get in touch with me! The year is not finished, and you can achieve great things in the remainder of time :). Taking learning German as your New Year´s Resolution is probably a psychological trap as it involves the possibility of procrastination ...
Instead, put yourself a goal: How much German could I possibly learn until ... November? Or until Christmas?
So, you need or want to learn German and don't know where to begin?
You've already started learning German but you have no clue, no idea of the grammar or you are totally confused?
You've been here for years but you're beginning to be really annoyed about not speaking German, not understanding jokes, having to rely on other people to get your paperwork done? In a nutshell, you want to pop that expat bubble you're living in and blend into this country that has a lot to offer, and so much more to offer when you speak the language well?
Consider also that speaking German doesn't serve you only for Germany, but also for Austria and partly Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and Belgium, wealthy countries with work offers. There are 96,7 millions of German native speakers in the world. Just think if German had been declared the official language of the early USA, as it was in discussion! :D
You've already been attending classes, but you don't understand the explanations and can't follow, or you are shy and afraid to speak, or you feel lost in a big group?
You have no idea of (English) grammar anyway and feel a slight dizziness when someone talks about "verbs", "subordinated clauses" or "conjugation"?
You want to apply for German citizenship and have to present a positive B1 test result? Or you have to take a test for enrolling studies at university or for another purpose and want to prepare it more efficiently?
You've heard weird and intimidating things about the "awful"* German language (* Mark Twain) - endless numbers of articles, cases, monster words and you are scared?
Or you're already quite advanced but you want to get rid of that annoying accent or these little mistakes, once and for all?
Don't worry. There are answers to all this - there's light at the end of the tunnel. Sure, nobody says that German is particularly easy or that you can learn it within 3 days. You have to be patient and put some effort, indeed. But there are no hopeless cases. Especially for anglophone natives or proficient speakers of English, German will appear very close and related, especially regarding vocabulary and tense structure, therefore it's the most logic thing to learn German.
German is structured, logic, analytic, consists of many bits you can put together like a puzzle, sometimes surprising, funny, precise, poetic . . .
GERMAN IS LEARNABLE!!!
I'm using a special method, a macro-micro-structural approach in order to achieve that students understand grammar easier, quicker and more thoroughly.
Most of the time I'm giving one to one lessons, which now with Corona is preferable. Distancing and hygiene measures will be respected. But also small group lessons for up to 3 students (at present max. 2) are possible if you have the same language level. Persons sharing a household anyway can be taught in a small group (couples, flatsharers).
Lessons are given at my place in Prenzlauer Berg.
I can teach in ENGLISH, FRENCH, SPANISH and PORTUGUESE.
You're coming to Berlin for a limited time and want to not just do sight-seeing but also learn basic communication and get a "cultural coaching" at the same time?
I can tailor a small crash course or workshop for you.
Also, I'm offering small taster courses beginning from now to give you an impression of how I teach without committing for a whole or several months. Course can be for small groups up to 3 students, for different levels or also one to one. The price for the taster course is reduced compared to the normal lesson price. A course should consist of 7 to 12 lessons, taken within a period of not more than 14 days to have a more intense effect.
If you're interested and want to know my website, details about my method, the prices, the open time slots or when to have a trial lesson, please send me a mail.
(there have been problems with the relay mail system recently - potential students didn't get my answers or I didn't get their second answer) so please be so kind to give me your real e-mail address. I promise I won't abuse or spam!)
