German lessons beginners children/teens (taught in English or French)

Do you want your children/teens to immerse themselves in the German language? The German lessons are usually taught in English in small groups (but can also be taught in French if the student doesn't know the English language). Private lessons can also be organised both in German (beginners) and in English (all levels).
Children are said to be fast learners; through the interactive activities, they will be eager to learn the language, remember what they learned and apply their language skills in real life context.
Why learn German?
German has the largest number of native speakers in the European Union. German is among the ten most commonly spoken languages in the world. It's always a huge advantage to know the German Language when working in Europe and even in non-European countries, most of the time, employers will look after employees who can speak many languages and in particular German.

Don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions. It would be a huge pleasure to integrate your child/teenager in one of my classes. :-) Lessons usually last 50 minutes.

Extra information

While you are young, you have more time to learn a new language, discover a new culture and make new friends through the German language. :-) In addition, when you will be travelling, you will easily be able to use several languages without the stress of not being able to express yourself or make yourself understood.

Hello!!! I would be thrilled to have you for student. We offer Spanish and Italian lessons at a native level and always make sure to keep a high-quality learning. Do you need a last minute lesson to prepare you for an examination? Do you wish to improve your language level rapidly and efficiently? Are you moving soon to Spain or Italy ? Do you need to prepare yourself for an interview? Well, you have chosen the right teacher! :-) I can make you discover the Spanish/Italian culture through the lessons and make sure that you will be able to speak properly Spanish/Italian once in Spain/Italy (or who knows Brazil... ;-) ). * Students taking their IB/ GCSEs/ A-Levels or other exams can be guaranteed to get the top grades (but you also need to do your homework and revise your notes ;-) ). I can also help students at the university in business, economics... * Students who are willing to learn Spanish/Italian for fun, let's do it! I can make the lessons fun for you and we can talk about many subjects. You have got a question? I'm waiting for you to send me a message. No questions? You can directly book your first lesson and I'll do my best to give you your desired time slot. Lessons usually last 50 minutes.
I am a qualified English teacher from England. I obtained my bachelor's degree in linguistics at Lancaster University (UK) and will soon have my master's degree. I have been teaching English for over 3 years to students who wish to improve their English language skills or become bilingual. All my students are satisfied with my course and those who had entrance exams have passed successfully. There is nothing like having English lessons with a qualified English speaker ;-) I have done all my studies in English and in the United Kingdom, I consider English as being my first language among all the other ones I have learned. Being a "native" speaker for me is meaningless, the qualifications are the most important as well as the experience (you could have a "native" speaker who makes a lot of mistakes because this person is not qualified in teaching). The price of the lessons is moderate compared to the effectiveness of my courses. I use a variety of methods and can easily adapt to the needs of the student. I offer courses at all levels (beginner, advanced to university level) as well as English courses for IELTS/TOEFL, A-LEVELS or correction of written works. I have worked with children as well as teenagers and adults. My 3 years of experience as a teacher in England have helped me to develop the qualities necessary to motivate my students and teach them effectively. I can deliver the lessons online anywhere in the world. Do not hesitate to contact me to book a lesson, places are quickly taken. If your desired time slot wouldn't be available, I would do my best to adapt myself to your schedule and I would refer you to some of my colleagues. ;-) Lessons usually last 50 minutes. See you soon!
Are you looking for a qualified English teacher from England? You have the possibility to improve your English while being supervised by your teacher. You can work on your grammar, writing, speaking and pronunciation. Are you desperate to pass your exams, prepare yourself for an interview or correct an essay? Or do you want to go to an English school or follow an English programme? The teacher is open to your requests. Maybe you want to share your English lesson with some of your friends? It is possible to form a group at a reduced price, tell me with whom you would like to form a group. ;-) If not, the lessons are also individualised (private). All levels are welcome (beginners to university students)! The teacher will be happy to receive you. Lessons can also be delivered online, students even learn better when lessons are given via Skype (the teacher takes notes for you online), technology is so cool! :-) Do you have a question? Don't worry, the teacher will be happy to answer you. Lessons usually last 50 minutes.
Hello everyone and welcome to my English and or German lessons taught in group. I organise English and German lessons for children and teenagers and separately adult English group lessons (beginners to advanced). For children and teenagers, interactive activities are used as a way to motivate them, help them remember what they have learned in class and make sure they will be able to apply their language skills in real life context. For the adults lessons, depending on what the students are willing to learn, we can have discussions based on the news, some grammar, writing... I am open to any suggestions, just tell me your needs and I am going to adapt the next lessons for you. If you wish to invite your friends and make a group with them, just let me know and I will allocate you a time slot. For private English lessons, please have a look at my other advertisements. The German lessons are usually for beginners/ intermediate (exceptionally advanced levels in German can be organised only if there is a high-demand). Don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions. It would be a huge pleasure to integrate you in one of my classes. :-) Lessons usually last 50 minutes.

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.

Improve your communication skills in German - Let's focus on speaking!Kursbeschreibung
With this course I will help you to improve your speaking and communication skills in German as a foreign language. Most language courses in Europe focus on the CEF and speaking is just one out of 4 or 5 skills. In group lessons participants usually don't have enough time to practise speaking. As you usually need good speaking skills for your daily life in Germany or at work, we will work on your communication skills. From CEF A1.2 to CEF C2, I will adapt all topics to your level.

Private German lessons (qualified teacher)
Qualified teacher, I provide German lessons for all audiences. From refresher training to more sustained learning, with more than 7 years of experience, I am the teacher you need.

Bernard
German online Teacher/tutor for A1(beginner level)
An A1 German class typically serves as an introduction to the German language for beginners. At this level, the focus is on establishing a foundation in essential vocabulary, basic grammar structures, and fundamental language skills. Here's an overview of what you might expect in an A1 German class: Greetings and Introductions: Learning how to greet others, introduce oneself, and engage in basic conversations, such as asking and answering simple questions about personal information. Vocabulary Building: Acquiring a basic vocabulary related to everyday topics, including numbers, colors, family, food, and common objects. Grammar Basics: Introduction to basic German grammar rules, including verb conjugation, sentence structure, and word order. Listening and Speaking: Developing listening and speaking skills through simple dialogues, audio exercises, and pronunciation practice. Reading and Writing: Introducing basic German reading and writing skills, including the recognition of simple texts, forming sentences, and writing short messages. Cultural Context: Exploring elements of German culture, customs, and traditions to provide context and a deeper understanding of the language. Interactive Activities: Engaging in interactive activities, games, and role-playing exercises to make the learning process enjoyable and immersive. Homework and Practice: Assigning light homework and encouraging regular practice to reinforce learning outside of the classroom. Assessment and Feedback: Conducting regular assessments to gauge progress and providing constructive feedback to help students improve. Encouraging Communication: Creating an environment that encourages students to communicate in German as much as possible, even at the beginner level. An A1 German class aims to lay a solid groundwork for further language learning and sets the stage for progression to higher proficiency levels. The atmosphere is typically supportive, fostering a positive and collaborative learning experience for students.

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.
