Individualized lessons - personal language coaching
You want or need to learn German?
You are going to apply for German citizenship?
You plan to enrol in a German university?
You will need to comply with a number of requirements of which one is presenting a certificate stating that you master the German language on the B1 or even a higher level (university), which is much more than ordering a drink and buying something in a shop.
But if you live in an Expat bubble, speaking English all day, working in English in international companies, speaking English or another language with your partner, family and friends, it's difficult to find time or get enough "natural" native input. It may well take longer than a few weeks to reach a very basic level, and longer than a few months to reach B1.
Let's be honest: It will require focused dedication, strong motivation and intensive training and exercise.
Many people tried language schools or studying on their own but often struggle due to the school/group setting, incompatible schedules or due to lack of grammar background/grammar understanding. It's not everyone's cup of tea to learn something new all by yourself and it is ok to be needing some proper instruction, guidance and a methodical approach. Using apps or videos can be helpful to some extent but doesn't replace a teacher's explanations.
For some people it is therefore more rewarding to invest into proper one to one lessons, tailored to your needs, adapted to your learning speed. Once you've understood the language system of German and acquired the basic knowledge and skills, you're prepared to continue further, be it with me, alone or in a small group, be it on your own or returning to language school group classes.
As an experienced teacher for German as a Foreign Language, I'm there for you to help you to reach the goal B1 or any other level.
For instance, it is perfectly achievable to reach B1 within a reasonable time -- with an adequate effort, attending regularly lessons that are frequent enough to bring you forward. It's difficult to say how many months you will need as it depends on the number of lessons taken per week, the time you invest into self-study, exercise and homework, your grammar knowledge, your disposition to learn languages, the opportunities you have or seek for getting German input and last but not least your motivation to overcome beginner struggles.
Who am I? I'm a native German, with Romance and German linguistic studies at Humboldt University, having over 10 years of private teaching experience. I speak English, Spanish, French and Portuguese fluently and I'm able to teach in those languages. Therefore, any beginner student who speaks the above languages well enough to follow explanations can successfully take lessons with me.
GERMAN IS LEARNABLE !!!
Linguists maintain that every normal person is able to learn another language up to B1 level, some need more time and dedication, some less. But it is possible!
Method: I'm using a linguistically based method which focuses on explaining also the language system and structure, taking into account neurolinguistic and cognitive science research. My lessons are an intensive, personalized language coaching: I pick you up at your present point of knowledge, we find out which are the gaps and weak points and work on these. There will be no hurry or pressure and I will explain as long as you need for understanding. It's not like in schools: Learn German the other way!
In case you want to take one of the official tests, once you have the necessary grammar basics, we focus on more specialized test training until you feel ready.
!!! Taster courses for zero beginners of 10 - 12 double lessons at any point of time, for 2-3 weeks! !!!
