Trusted teacher: How many people in the world speak German as their mother tongue? Around 130 million people speak German as their mother tongue, or as their second language. German is the most widely spoken mother tongue in the European Union and is the official language in seven countries. There are 7.5 million people in 42 countries who are part of a German-speaking minority. How many people have already learned German as a foreign language? 289 million! It is the total number of people around the world who have learned German at some point, according to a calculation by the Germanist Ulrich Ammon. Another question is, to what extent they have done it. Currently, 15.4 million people around the world learn German as a foreign language, 90 percent are schoolchildren and the remaining 10 percent are adults. How many words are there in the German language? More than you might think. German learners soon learn that two nouns combined make up a new word. This makes it difficult to count the total number. In 2013, Berlin philologists estimated a total of 5.3 million German words. In 2017, the editors of the Duden, the standard work of German spelling, calculated that today's German has almost 23 million words (in its basic forms alone). This result is based on a gigantic digital collection of texts from a total of 40,000 fiction and non-fiction books. However, the latest edition of the Duden contains only 145,000 entries. And a normal speaker uses only 12,000 to 16,000 words. What words are the most common? „Der, die, das“: Specific articles, which all German students know so well, take first place. They are followed by "in" and "and". Which word has the most letters? In the Duden it is: "Aufmerksamkeitsdefizit-Hyperaktivitätsstörung" (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), with 44 letters. Why was the International Mother Language Day created? The UN declared February 21 the International Mother Language Day, because almost half of the 6,000 existing languages ​​around the world are in danger of extinction. German is not one of them, it is one of the ten most widely spoken languages. But in Germany there are regional languages ​​dominated by fewer and fewer people: North Frisian and East Frisian are especially threatened languages, according to the UNESCO Atlas of the World's Languages ​​in Danger. In class, we will tackle grammar as daily as drinking water or eating during the day. My work materials include flashcards, textbooks, web pages, podcasts, German movies and series, music and literary books.

Trusted teacher: Hi, My name is Santiago and I am offering individual and personalized virtual English classes to improve both your oral and written communication. The main focus of my classes is on developing English language communication in a fluid and structured way, whether to prepare for international exams, including the TOEFL and the FCE, or to be able to communicate adequately in the professional field, or to reinforce and maintain prior knowledge of this language. I have a degree, graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University in the USA. Having learned English since I was a child at the Ivy Thomas Memorial School and lived for a year and a half in Thailand, followed by 4 years in the USA, I acquired great knowledge and fluency in the English language. In Thailand I spent a year and a half studying communication arts and this helped me prepare for my studies in the US I had several communication classes, learning techniques on how to speak better using not only our words, but also our body to help us speak in a way more natural, calm and without getting nervous if we get stuck or forget what we wanted to say. During my career in the US I was constantly writing essays for my classes, in addition to having to present projects in front of my teachers and classmates. At the same time, I was working at university and after graduating I worked for a year, mainly having long conversations on the phone with people from all over the country. Nowadays the ability to communicate in English is essential and I will prepare you so that you can meet your objectives. It could be studying abroad, going to live in an English-speaking country, improving communication in the professional field or practicing so as not to lose the level previously acquired. If what you are looking for is to improve your knowledge of the English language, I am going to help you. My methodology is simple. Each person is different and I adapt the content of my classes to the needs and interests of my students. We all learn in different ways and at different times, that is why I design my classes individually.

Trusted teacher: Literature: During literature courses, students will be analyzing and interpreting different forms of fictional literature. This will help them understand the fundamental aspects of literature as an art form. We will be reading poems, prose, short stories, novels, novellas, and plays to develop close reading skills. Like an AP Literature class, students will dissect the work and write their analyses. Writing: During writing courses, students will have the option to focus on essay writing, creative writing, and business writing. With essay writing, we will be practicing different and effective techniques to successfully abide by the rubric provided. (Ask that the student have a copy of the rubric during the lesson). With creative writing, we will be enhancing skills in vocabulary, sentence structure, literary techniques, and plots (involving characters, settings, themes, and messages) to build fictional poetry, prose, novels, and plays. With business writing, we will be building and adapting resumes as well as learning how to write professional emails. Language Arts: During Language Arts courses, students will learn how vocabulary, grammar, and composition create effective arguments. This course will mainly focus on writing arguments through rhetorical, cultural, and contextual lenses. Additionally, students will be able to practice public speaking to improve their overall argumentative skills. Like an AP Language and Composition class, students will read nonfiction to develop an argument that explains ideas, argues a point, or persuades readers. Conversational: During conversational English courses, non-native English speakers will be advancing their understanding of the language. Students will be learning practical and conversational skills that improve vocabulary, conventions, and grammar. Lessons will cover reading, writing, and speaking for everyday life. As a tutor, I wish to tailor each of my classes to my students' interests and educational needs. Each lesson will be different from the rest and custom for each student, depending on their levels of proficiency.
