À propos de moi

I am a professional language teacher with over 15 years experience in teaching German as a foreign/second language. Whether you are just starting out or would like to learn German for work, study, research, travel, or simply socializing with your friends and family, working together, we can identify your language skills and create a program that will help you achieve your language goals.

I offer general language courses (A1 – C2) and specialized lessons with a focus on conversation, vocabulary practice, grammar review, reading, writing, test preparation (Goethe-Zertifikat, TestDaF, telc, etc.), and application training.

I strongly believe that communication is key to learning languages. I, therefore, adopt a communicative and intercultural approach to language learning that integrates the teaching and practice of grammar.

My educational background is in German language, literature, and linguistics. Before becoming a professional German language teacher, I worked as a literary translator and interpreter. I also studied music (classical piano and music theory). I speak four languages, and I’m currently learning the fifth one. My experience in learning languages has a significant impact on my teaching style – I know what works and what doesn’t.

It would be a great honor and pleasure for me to assist you in acquiring any necessary language skills you need to succeed in a German-speaking environment. I look forward to working with you!

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me!
