German


We enjoy teaching languages and can draw upon our own learning experience, which has allowed us to establish certain criteria for our teaching methods.

We cannot promise that you will learn German very fast and without effort. You will only be successful if you approach your project with a lot of commitment.

First of all, you should check your own motivation. If you are serious about learning a language, you should be prepared to invest a great deal of dedication, personal commitment and time. You will need a good portion of additional energy before you can say: Today I have been able to have a conversation in German and it was a great feeling.

For successful language learning the mutual trust between teacher and learner is essential. It creates an open and relaxed atmosphere in which even difficult topics can be covered with fun and humour. Individual lessons are particularly suitable for this purpose.

If you consistently pursue your goals and work together with your teacher, your first success will be apparent quite soon. However, you should bear in mind that progress cannot be forced. If, in addition to your language lessons, you have professional or private obligations and do not have the necessary time to prepare your classes thouroughly, you should keep calm and just carry on.

The learning curve does not always grow steadily. There are times when you will have the feeling that things are not going well. It is a natural phenomenon that after a certain period of relatively rapid progress the learning curve even drops a little and remains at this level for a while - this is a kind of consolidation phase. If you do not get frustrated and continue to trust your teacher, things will pick up again after this phase. The process of ups and downs repeats at regular intervals.

The time required and money spent to learn a language carefully is certainly worthwhile. Last but not least, you will improve your quality of life if you master the language of the country in which you live and work if only temporarily.
