Hallo & Herzlich Willkommen! :-)

Bring your German skills to the next level by practicing with a native speaker. Enjoy personalized and fun lessons and learn how to speak German fluently and correctly.


From my personal experience in learning many different languages, I know which methods and tools will help you to become more fluent and confident in speaking a foreign language.
That is the reason why I design my lessons with a focus on communication and fluency.

- Choose the topics you are interested in and learn to express yourself more fluently
- Learn to differentiate between formal and informal conversation skills
- Get to know German culture and aspects of everyday life in Germany
- Improve your vocabulary, grammar, reading, writing, comprehension and pronunciation skills

You want to go the extra mile and get the most out of our sessions? – I will be happy to provide you with additional free resources after each lesson. This will empower you to invest some extra time and effort to improve your fluency at an even higher pace.

I look forward to working with you! :-)
