    Fun and effective German classes, Brighton and online
    I believe the best way to learn a new language is through natural interaction and I believe that the more fun and informative this interaction is, the more effectively you can learn. 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 such great teachers so much, I'm committed to be that for my students in each class as well. So with this German class, you will get • a very competent, patient, and fun tutor with years of experience • a very supportive environment • as much opportunity as possible to actually speak German, reflect on it, and improve • 3-4 hrs of homework per lesson • heaps of audio and video material as well as many exercises to help you practise all aspects of the German language • and you will get to see how manageable the German grammar can actually be! Of course, you can adjust the classes to whatever you consider to be most relevant for you! If you like my approach and would like to start your (next) German adventure, please don't hesitate and let me know! I would love to help you with your German, whether in person or online! ps: You can start right away at any level!

    Harold
    Experienced German teacher gives classes in Brussels or at home
    My teaching method aims for a clear understanding of the rules and their constant reminder, and if possible in a "playful" way. In my opinion, the practice of grammar is like mental gymnastics much less arid than it seems. Learning German on a bad basis is also very detrimental for the rest of one's learning. My explanations are clear and structured, and are ideally done with the words of students, rather than with technical terms. I also give great importance to oral expression because it allows the student to better appropriate the language and is often neglected or difficult to teach in group classes.

    Jenny
