German course for adults and teens! (All skill levels)
I am a German native speaker and general language enthusiast. Besides German, I speak English, Swedish, Spanish, French and Italian. Having learned 6 languages myself, I am 100% convinced that I will successfully teach you German(in a fun and relaxed manner)! Therefore, I offer a money-back guarantee: Should you not be satisfied with the results of a course with me, I will reimburse you! I have been teaching since 2018 and am currently one of the most-reviewed teachers on this platform. I encourage you to pause here and have a look at my reviews. I am confident that you too will have a similar view after having had some classes with me. On top of teaching here on Apprentus, I have taught offline group classes for the Volksuniversiteit The Hague (A Volksuniversiteit (litt. folk university) is an institute for non-formal adult education in the Netherlands). I also taught for and underwent training with Berlitz, which is one of, if not THE largest language school in the world, operating in over 70 countries and 500+ locations. I am 33 years old, have an honours degree from Leiden University, The Hague, am calm, encouraging, and, most importantly, PATIENT. My main objective in classes is to make the student feel relaxed and at ease. I encourage you to speak without fear of making mistakes. In fact, I celebrate making mistakes. "Why?", you may ask. Well, making mistakes means that you are leaving your comfort zone. You are trying something that you are not already skilled at. You don't choose the easy path! People who never make mistakes are stagnant. Therefore, making mistakes should be CELEBRATED instead of shunned! So, good on you for mispronouncing "Nachmittag (Afternoon)", or using the wrong grammar when making a sentence! Here, let me help you get it right this time! :) Do you already have German knowledge? No problem! Instead of building the basics, we can design classes that meet your personal needs and preferences. We can write essays together, you can hold presentations about topics of your interests or topics that I provide, we can discuss current events, hold debates, you can write news-paper article summaries, or we deep dive into advanced grammar. Whatever it is that you enjoy and need: We can do it together. All my classes combine speaking, listening & grammar exercises in interaction with me. Unless you're a very advanced student, we will work with learning materials created by some of the best publishers for language learning in Germany. These materials serve as a red thread for our course that introduces new words, grammar, and exercises in a good pace and interesting manner which keeps you engaged and motivated. 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! Another important factor for me is having a personal connection. Unless you prefer to "stick to business", which is fine as well, we typically start our classes by talking about how the weekend or preceding weekdays have been. I don't see my students as a resource to be extracted, but as people for whom I develop a genuine interest. Over the course of time, we both know what is going on in our respective lives and update each other about small or big life events. Having taught many students for multiple years, I can gladly say that I have made real friends thanks to our classes, some of which I even have met in real life. I am extremely confident that you very soon will have the same success that I have had in learning languages! So what are you waiting for? Get in touch now to book an initial meeting in which we can get to know each other so that I can learn about you, your needs and wishes, which will allow us to design the optimal course for you. See you soon! Bis bald! Sebastian

Learn German easily and quickly with 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 course 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
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.
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!
Online course for German as a foreign language with all material included
In my one-to-one online courses, you will find a room just for yourself, where you will be coached within a German speaking setting. Each lesson depends on your needs and aims, which may be to improve in a specific linguistic feature as pronunciation, grammar, spelling or vocabulary. Or it may be to work on a specific goal, e.g. an official language exam, finding work in the German speaking countries or bureaucratic issues. Or it can just be conversation in order to gain fluency. In our class I will also point out what you can do during the week in order to further improve your German language skills and get closer to your goals and I will hand out to you the study material you need.

German tutoring by graduate university
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: It is above all a long-term job. That's why, I take the time to "learn how to learn" in an efficient way: every exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower. Quality takes precedence over quantity in order to achieve optimal long-term results. Students bring their own course material (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 how to write, to comment on literary texts and a methodology to work on the oral comprehension. The student will have to bring his own booklet of exam preparations available in all bookstores. For the Gothe Institute examinations, the Cornlesen exam books are particularly suitable. The other alternative would be to download AND PRINT before the beginning of the course an examination copy of GOETHE INSTITUT available on the site of the institute itself. For the oral comprehension: work from visual audio views downloaded from the DEUTSCHE WELLE website, which offer various recordings adapted to all levels, with a very concrete approach. The student acquires long-term fluency not only in oral comprehension, but also enriches his basic vocabulary through exercises. I am also working on the oral tests of the Goethe Institute to familiarize with oral. 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, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, especially for the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. In addition, each student can contact me at any time outside the course by email if necessary. Feel free to contact me for more information.
