    Unorthodox course to learn German quickly. Levels A1 to C2

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    Around the world, around 15.4 million people learn the German language. It is becoming more and more important both economically and politically. So I congratulate you for deciding to learn it.

    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 you will have a second chance through intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology.

    Currently I am writing a book on language learning and I offer tailor-made one-to-one German lessons for all levels from A1 to C2 (reading, listening, writing and speaking). My goal is to make you independent as quickly as possible.

    I have 5 years of experience 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 rudiments of Greek.

    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.

    About Me

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    My lifestyle has inevitably turned me into a translator. I am a native German speaker who spends most of my time abroad - Belgium, France, Portugal. In different universities I studied chemistry, industrial design, applied arts, service design and philosophy but in the end I came to the conclusion that I was much more interested to the technical or poetic vocabulary and the idioms that I was able to learn along the way that I had become interested in what I was studying. Then, people became interested in my linguistic abilities and asked me to give them lessons or to translate texts for them - which I did a lot. My advantage is that I know how to apply methods in philosophy as well as design thinking to learning a language. My classes provide a refreshing way of explaining and thinking about the language.

    Now the language has become my center. I have studied grammar in depth, I have learned Latin and a little Greek and I am continuously improving my knowledge and broadening my spectrum.

    Education

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    I have a BAC +3 in applied arts from the University of Nîmes, a BAC +4 in service design also from the University of Nîmes and a BAC +4 in philosophy from the University of Aix-en-Provence .

    Experience / Qualifications

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    I have been teaching German for 5 years.

    My specialty is grammar, philosophy of language, methodology and the design of user experience.

    German tutoring by graduate university
    University graduate in German language and literature (Master of Arts in German with specialization in Medieval Languages and Literature) with a solid experience gives private German lessons for all levels. Courses adapted according to the needs of the student. They aim to consolidate concepts, fill in gaps, prepare for exams (maturity, compulsory school leaving certificates, entrance exams to gyms, university, Goethe Zertifikat up to C1) and / or learn about language. For school supports: It is above all a work on the long term. Therefore, any exercise is explained in detail, which can make its execution slower: the quality is priority to the quantity in order to obtain an optimal result in the long term. Students bring their own course material (notebooks, books, audio CDs, dictionaries, assessments, etc.). It is important to note that my presence and explanations alone are insufficient to obtain satisfactory results. That's why I take the time to "learn to learn" effectively. 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.

    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!

    Lara
    Private Spanish lessons with native Spanish graduate in Foreign Language Education
    Spanish is my mother tongue and I have specialized training in language teaching. I have a degree in Translation and Interpreting at the University of Salamanca, Spain, and currently I am studying for a Master's degree in Language Training. I have already been a teacher for different students and different levels (from primary to professional) and I have 4 years of experience. I teach Spanish by taking up the grammatical bases that are essential but also in a fun way: I try to establish a real dialogue in Spanish with the student so that he can put his skills into practice. I adapt to the student according to his needs: that it is rather the grammatical bases and the writing to rework for the notes at the school or that it is rather a professional who needs to develop his fluency in the 'oral. Classes will be tailored to your needs - ie vocabulary and grammar for high school or specific subjects.
