Kevin
Polyglot specialist with 9 years of experience. German in speed mode. Level A1 to C2. No school teaching.
I offer you a German course that is not like the others. There are two types of courses. Here is an analogy to illustrate their respective approaches: If you travel back and forth by train every day and don't have time to wait long at the platform, imagine that you only have two options: 1) Memorise the timetable. 2) Realise that the train comes every ten minutes and that a train arrives for example at 7:00 a.m. In school pedagogy, in textbooks and in normal lessons, the first approach is used - in the course I am offering you, it is the second approach because it is more economical and faster. My offer is aimed at both pupils and adults who want to learn the German language without time-consuming detours through the madness of fruitless school methods. Learning is easy, but unlearning things that have become bad habits is extremely difficult. This makes it all the more important to learn the right reflexes as early as possible. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced learner, with my customised lessons you will greatly accelerate the learning process while having a positive attitude. I offer German lessons for individuals or groups (2 to 5 people). The methods are based on cognitive science and historical linguistics in particular. My modular programme can be adapted on a case-by-case basis. The converging point of these modules is your independence in spontaneous conversations in real life. What will not be covered in the course: learning lists of verbs; learning lists of nouns with articles; learning words with their translations; flashcards; doing school exercises; following the syllabus of a booklet; imposing the English grammar on the German language. What is particularly important to me: to motivate my student and to give him a learning rhythm; to encourage his creativity; to befriend him with the language; the letters and their sounds; to strengthen the memory by training the phonological loop; to teach blueprints instead of memorising sentences; to explain how the language works in order to make my student independent as quickly as possible; to eliminate common preconceptions, such as that 'der' would mean masculine and 'die' feminine, that the accusative would be a direct complement and the dative an indirect complement, that verbs would be irregular, that declension would be random and therefore would have to be learnt with each verb...; to put practice at the centre and only deal with grammar where necessary. A first lesson will give you a sound idea of my pedagogy.

Hiba
Apprendre l'Allemand facilement et rapidement avec Frau Müller
Hello Dear Student, My name is Hiba, I worked for years as a translator for German, then I worked in a language school in Hamburg. There I gained valuable experience in the methodology of teaching foreign languages to children and adults. According to my students, learning languages with me is a lot of fun and I am very happy to hear that, because I help my students to stay motivated until they reach their goal, because I simply prepare for each student an individual learning program that is tailored to his language skills and needs. So far, I have met and worked with wonderful students (of different ages) from all over the world. My students achieve excellent results, which makes me very happy and very proud! Students tell me often that they have no knowledge of German or that they have already forgotten what they have learned or that they have a language exam soon and if I can help and my answer is : Yes, of course. I work at your pace and according to your needs. Basically, the cours covered several areas, such as reading, understanding and prounciation. Since I love my job very much, I also accompany my students even outside working hours via WhatsApp, so I am always available if you have questions or need help. So don ́t hesitate to contact me! If you require more information, write me and I will be happy to answer your questions. I look forward to having you on my team soon, because you deserve the best. See you later

Elise
Private German lessons by qualified academic
University graduate in German language and literature (Master of Letters in German with specialization in medieval languages and literature) with a solid experience, gives private German lessons for all levels. Lessons adapted to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate notions, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams to gymnasiums, university, Bachelor level and Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and/or learn the language. For school supports: Above all, this is long-term work. This is why I take the time to "learn how to learn" effectively: every exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower. Quality takes priority over quantity in order to obtain optimal long-term results. Students bring their own course materials (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.). Another important point: in order for my help to be beneficial, it is necessary for the student to provide regular personal work between lessons. It is essentially a question of rereading notes, redoing exercises similar to those carried out together or even advancing in the learning of vocabulary. For conversation classes: Topics are based on interests and / or specific needs for exam preparation. I give special importance to pronunciation, fluency and vocabulary. I usually correct at the end of a conversation exercise with detailed feedback, this to avoid blocking and work on fluidity. Depending on the level of the students and / or their expectations (preparation exams / assessments / desire for improvement for example), I work on the choice of appropriate words, grammatical accuracy, the ability to formulate more or less complex sentences. For exam preparations: The courses offer to acquire solid tools to learn to write, to comment on literary texts and a methodology to work on oral comprehension. The student must bring their own exam preparation brochure, available in all bookstores. For Goethe Institute model exams, the exam books from Cornlesen are particularly suitable. The other alternative would be to download and print before the start of the course a copy of the Goethe Institute exam available on the institute's website. For the oral comprehension: Work from audio-visual viewings downloaded from the Deutsche Welle site, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. In the long term, the student acquires ease not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I also work on the Goethe Institut oral tests to familiarize myself with speaking. For the work of the written expression: I begin by explaining in the first lesson some methodological tools to acquire writing skills. The student has the opportunity to start writing during the course or do a writing exercise on duty and give it to me to correct (send by email or at the beginning of the next lesson). The corrections are explained in detail. In addition, at the time of booking, the student can send me a draft copy before the lesson so that I can meet his needs even more quickly. Apart from my presence with the student, every lesson involves preparation time before and after the lesson, particularly for the work that I correct. My goal being to design an individualized course, I take the time necessary to write detailed comments on corrected work or advice to ensure maximum success for everyone. In addition, each student can contact me at any time outside of class by email if necessary. Feel free to contact me for more information.

Andrea
Individual exam preparation for telc German B1, B2, C1 or the Goethe certificate for B1, B2, C1 or C2
As a certified examiner and experienced trainer for German (foreign language), I prepare you individually for the telc German and Goethe certificate exams. Why with me? I know the telc German exams and Goethe certificate exams in detail. You will not only learn the parts of the exam, but also the best strategy for solving each part of the exam and the tasks. Efficient preparation: As a rule, 10 appointments are enough if you already have good prior knowledge. We focus on you passing the exam. Ideal if you already have good previous knowledge. In just 10 appointments you will learn the exam format, the tasks and the best strategy. Do you need more time before the exam? Do you still have gaps, your knowledge of German is not sufficient or you have been living in Germany for a long time and it has been a long time since your last course? We will then add the most important topics relevant to the exam so that you are optimally prepared.
