Individual German online lessons

Why individual lessons?
I certainly do not want to discredit language teaching and learning in group classes. I myself have taught many groups during the last years at language schools. The atmosphere there is usually quite relaxed and people from all over the world come together.
However, teaching in groups also has some disadvantages. Often it is not too effective, because as a learner you are distracted much more often, or the level of the individual participants differs greatly. And finally, the teacher has to try to accommodate everyone's needs at the same time.

Therefore, on, all German lessons are offered online via Zoom in individual sessions. Depending on what suits you best, you can book lessons with the following duration:

I teach all levels from A1 to C2 (based on the European Framework of Reference for Languages). If you don't know what level you are at, we can find out together in a first trial lesson.
Go to the bottom of the page to see an overview of the categories in which you can book lessons. If you don't find what you are looking for, just contact me and we'll see if I can help you.

When are the lessons taking place?
