Master in Tourism, Austria
German Teacher, Native Account Manager for German on an online travel platform
I develop the program according to the goals and needs of the students. From the beginning on I only speak German during the class, if you are a beginner during the first classes I explain to you in German and then repeat the same sentence in English and then in German again. I think the best way to learn a language is getting used to listen to it and speak a lot.
I developed a special program for beginners which leads you through different important topics and with each topic, there are new phrases and vocabulary which you should dominate until the next class in order to have a conversation with those phrases. I also include the Grammar which comes along with the topic and I use different tools like videos, presentations for each class.
If you are already advanced in German, then we will analyze in the first lesson your needs and goals and I adapt my materials accordingly to make the classes as fun and efficient as possible.
I enjoy teaching my native language and rather than just a job I see it as an opportunity to connect with another person who is willing to learn something new and help him/her with his/her goals and see him/her improve. That is very satisfying.
Languages are my passion and I love learning new languages myself so I can perfectly understand you and I am looking forward to meeting you in one of my classes.
Kamēr citi tikai domā un sapņo, Tu jau dari! Iemīlejies valodu apguves procesā un padari to par tavu ikdienas rutīnu.
I was born and grew up in Austria and I am living in Mexico now for 6 years. I studied my Master in Austria in Tourism and always had a passion for languages. Therefore besides my English classes in school, I also took French and Spanish classes. Later on, at university, I also decided to take Russian classes.
I think the best way to learn a language is by speaking with natives. I have never lived in an English speaking country but tried as much as I can speak with exchange students at university that helped me a lot, same with Spanish, I came to Mexico and started to speak only with Mexicans in order to pick up the language as fast as possible. Learning languages opened a door of new opportunities for me as I thanks to speaking different languages I always found new friends and new career opportunities wherever I was.
Besides languages I love traveling, getting to know new cultures and learn about them. I love living in Mexico and I also love Austria my home country cause they are so different and that for me is something important in life, diversity and learning something new every day in order to become a bit wiser and a better person each day :)
