Fun and effective German classes, Berlin and online

The best way to learn a new language is through natural interaction. And I believe that you learn most effectively when you feel at ease and when you are having fun!

You will see that each class is individually adapted to your personal learning style and that you can improve at your optimal level, because you will always be challenged but never overwhelmed.

I am an enthusiastic language learner myself and know the importance of a fun and knowledgeable teacher. Because I enjoyed learning with great teachers so much, I'm committed to be that for you in every class as well.

With this German class, you will get
• a very competent, patient, and fun tutor with years of experience
• a very supportive environment
• as many opportunities as possible to actually speak German, reflect on it, and improve
• 3-4 hrs of homework per lesson (if you want!)
• heaps of audio and video material as well as many exercises to help you practise all aspects of the German language
• and you will see how manageable the German grammar actually is!

Of course, you can adjust the classes to whatever you consider to be most relevant for you!

If you like my approach and want to improve your German, write me a message or book a lesson with me! I would love to help you with your German, whether in person or online!

You can start right away at any level!

Awesome session, looking forward to the next ones
Best German class I had in a while! really recommend.
We had a kickoff session which outlined the course and the training style of Benedikt. I feel comfortable with the agenda ahead.
Benedikt is a very friendly and patient person and I feel confident and at ease speaking in German with him.
Ce premier cours avec Benedickt a été vraiment super! Il est structuré, à l'écoute et à la recherche des besoins de l'apprenant! Je me réjouis de mon prochain cours!

This one-to-one coaching could be useful for you if you... - want to create a clear picture of your desired future and your individual path - want to activate your unique resources and strengths - want to transform inner insecurity into confidence in order to focus your inner power - want to expand your scope of action - want to use your gifts to co-create the transition towards a life-affirming and vital lifestyle in harmony with nature. I combine hypnosystemic, solution-focused and embodiment methods that are particularly well suited to quickly develop coherent solutions and to support you in living a vibrant, authentic and life-affirming life. In addition we get inspiration from our intuition, as well as elements from positive psychology, permaculture and nature.

Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

Marina

Sebastian
German course for adults, students or kids! (All skill levels)
Hallo und willkommen! Ich heiße Sebastian und ich bin 31 Jahre alt. I currently work as a language teacher at the Volksuniversiteit The Hague and I love every minute I can spend with my students. A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands. I am a German native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides German, I speak English, Swedish, Spanish, French and Italian. Having learned multiple languages myself I am sure that I can successfully teach you German in a fun and relaxed manner. My focus lies on speaking the language as much as possible with my students. Immersion is key to language learning. Think of small children. They are language geniuses. Why? Because they speak as soon as their brains permit them to speak, without worrying about making mistakes. Therefore, it is paramount to start using the newly learned words immediately in order to prime our brains to get comfortable with the new language. Do you already have German knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. My classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Furthermore, I show you German food, music and places. On top of that, I introduce you to the best technological tools (homepages and applications) to boost your language learning and take it to the next level! I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! I look forward to hearing from you! See you soon! Bis bald! Sebastian

Brigitte
Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private
I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.
