German for beginners (for English and Polish speakers)

I conduct classes in German from scratch. The course at my place is dedicated to people who either start their adventure with German or have already studied basic issues, but for some reasons they stopped learning at an early stage and want to return to it. Do not worry, we will refresh information and go further. I also invite students who need help at A1-B1 level.

Please contact me regarding the available hours before booking, as I have not edited the calendar correctly yet.

About Me

I'm Shane, 24. I come from Poland, I have lived in Berlin for a while where I was also teaching and now, I live in the capital city of Poland - Warsaw. I study MA on SGH Warsaw School of Economics, where my major is exclusively lectured in English. Meanwhile, I focus on doing various jobs and learning other languages. I am bilingual, I have been learning English since I was four years old and today it is the most important language for me and the one I use almost all the time. I have studied performing arts in Poland and I do some stage activities as a hobby. My main job in Poland and Germany has been teaching English as a freelancer. I have worked as a translator and copywriter as well. I also have had some jobs not connected with languages like shop assistant or secretary although it only made me realize that my passion and dream job for now is the one strictly connected with foreign languages. Due to that, I decided to make my profile here and hopefully look for new students in Warsaw. If you share my huge interest to languages, I can offer you to join me and have fun with learning English or Polish. I am waiting for you!
Shane.

Education

University of Lower Silesia, Wroclaw, major: Design Now: Modern Arts, specialization: performing arts and film, media, new technologies, bachelor degree (three years)

Experience / Qualifications

Five years of experience on teaching English, also for groups and at local language school, from children age 3 to elders, basic lessons and also conversations, visible effects
In language learning, passion is the most important thing. It is thanks to her that you can build a persistent foundation that induces you to work, and in time turns your learning into mere pleasure. I know what I'm saying because I started learning my first foreign language - English at the age of four. This gesture on the part of my parents gave me a constant love of foreign languages ​​- now I also speak German, Spanish, and besides extending skills in their field, I also learn Chinese and Hebrew. Why? The life situation has not forced me to, I always just wanted to. And this is also my goal in the work of an English teacher, which I have been doing for six years. I try to inspire people of all ages. Show that a seemingly difficult school test from past tense, or an exam that creates opportunities for better pay at work are not only within your reach, but can also make you find a new passion. Who knows, maybe someday you will also be able to feel the satisfaction of learning someone from your favorite textbook from years ago? :) It was Wrocław, it was Berlin, and now, again I offer lessons full time in Wroclaw, more specifically in Rynek / on Dworzec Glowny. I really like the form that I've been practicing in Berlin, i.e. learning at a cafe in the city, but if you prefer another option, let me know. I advise and help you choose the appropriate textbooks, but if you prefer to only process materials from school + additional exercises to print it will not be a problem.
I am native Polish speaker. I live in Wroclaw, Poland. I have five years experience on teaching English as a foreign language (taught in Polish). I offer Polish lessons on every level, for people every age. Lessons at the cafe or optionally at student's place. Taught in English so you need to have at least B2 English level. Individual approach, interesting methods. Also, an option to have lessons based only on conversations. First, we will have some casual talk and then, I will provide with a list of subjects to choose and we will then discuss them. Optionally, you can come for conversations with second person.

Elise
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.

ENGLISH AND GERMAN CLASSES FOR WRITING AND SPEAKING
​English and German are two of the most dominant and essential languages nowadays. Growing up bilingual with these two was a challenging, humbling and exciting experience. Now I would like to share my knowledge on effortlessly switching between them with you! The lessons will be hands-on, but easily understandable and true-to-life, so you can go and use what you've learned right away! There will be homework, and I place great value on pronunciation, as that is what makes or breaks a language "performance" in my eyes. I will try and use whatever foundation and experiences you have and integrate that into the course so that you will be able to make better connections and learn faster. You and I can figure this out together! <3

Elodie
Private lessons for German - English - French
The student informs me of the concepts he wishes to see or review in French, German and / or English; I adapt and agree to give him a course of the best possible quality, as well as to provide him with exercises and advice adapted to his needs. I graduated from college in June 2015 with honors and am now available to help other students and share my acquired knowledge with them. I was also a six-month au pair in Germany between 2015 and 2016 and again did a semester in Germany from March to September 2019 as part of an Erasmus. Moreover, I have been speaking German daily in my private life for over two years now. As for English, I did a term in Liverpool with a host family with daily lessons in a language school and have continued to practice it ever since, both personally and at university. I have obtained an official certificate attesting to my level of German (telc Deutsch C1 Hochschule), as well as a certificate attesting to my level of English (Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English - C1). Regarding French, it is my mother tongue and I continue to improve my skills, particularly as part of my training as a translator at the University of Geneva. In June 2020, I finished my Bachelor at the Faculty of Translation and Interpretation of Geneva and will continue my studies in Master in Translation and Communication from September! Ps: During the Covid-19 crisis, I continued to give online lessons (via Skype / Zoom) to several students and these lessons went very well! Given the current circumstances and because I am not always in Geneva during the summer holidays, I offer online courses, in particular to ensure the regularity of our lessons. I hope I can help you as best you can in your learning and pass on my passion for languages to you during our meetings! We look forward to meeting you soon! Elodie

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.
