Benedikt
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!

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

GERMAN LESSONS - Exciting & Innovative in Brussels + Online
*** Those who make and correct many ERRORS in a short period of time learn the most! LEARNING works best WITHOUT PRESSURE, with JOY and CLEAR GOALS! *** I have already learned many foreign languages myself, at school, at university, in language tandem, and while traveling. So I know what distinguishes good learning from bad. Learning languages can be very easy, it can be fun, and it can open up completely new perspectives. The three most important ingredients are: SPEAK, SPEAK, SPEAK. Without fear of making mistakes. Because mistakes are what bring us further! It doesn't work without them. In my German course you can expect: * A competent, motivated, patient, and humorous teacher with experience * An INDIVIDUAL LEARNING GOAL PLAN that is tailored to your knowledge, interests and goals * An INNOVATIVE TEACHING METHOD that focuses on dialogue and confident communication skills * Many more exercises in listening comprehension, writing, and grammar, which thanks to the ABUNDANCE AND DIVERSITY of the exercise material (audios, videos, articles, cartoons and much more) never get boring * Training of your CREATIVITY in speaking and writing, in discussions and writing texts * Development of relevant KNOWLEDGE from German history, culture, literature and politics You can start at any time, at any level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced). Feel free to write me a message and we will arrange a first meeting to get to know each other and to discuss the details. I look forward to you and the lessons together!

ENGLISH and GERMAN LESSONS FOR CHILDREN/ TEENS/ ADULTS BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED
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. :-)
