I grew up about twenty minutes from the border with France and got to go there regularly from early on. I started learning French when I was 12 and started teaching it when I was 15 because, believe it or not, I enjoy the sometimes weird grammatical complexities of French.

At university I took advanced classes to continue learning and when I went to study in Canada I lived in a shared house with six native speakers of Canadian and European French. This year I spent the spring in Morocco and Togo where I got to experience two more varieties French.

I consider myself highly Francophile, enjoy reading in French and take pleasure in teaching it. Explaining grammar, spelling, pronunciation and difficult features of the language are my assets as I have been largely successful in sharing them with students, friends and acquaintances over the years.

Allons-y! :)

About Viktor R.

Hola, hallo, olá, ciao and bonjour !

My name is Viktor Malu and I'm a well-traveled linguist who is passionate about the nature and manifold applications of language. I have either lived or spent significant time in places where the languages I speak are alive and I strive to spark linguistic enthusiasm in the people around me. I have a talent for using existing knowledge of language, which we all have, even unknowingly, to make learning or improving a new language easier. Languages are vivid, fun, and adventurous, they often require patience and thrive with motivation - just like my classes!

I have recently graduated in Applied Intercultural Linguistics (B.A.) from the University of Augsburg, Germany. This is an interdisciplinary program that includes linguistic theory and practice as well as didactics and cultural studies. It allowed me to spend two years studying and living in the English-, Spanish- and French-speaking Americas and Portugal. 

I started tutoring in English, French and Spanish when I was 15 and have continued teaching languages professionally and as a volunteer in a variety of settings, such as a private tutoring institute, a secondary school in Costa Rica, at university (phonetics and phonology of English), at an NGO's school for refugees as well as at a language school for adults and young professionals.

Currently, I'm in the Master's Program for Conference Interpreting at the University of Leipzig, Germany, to become an interpreter for German, English, Spanish and French, while teaching those languages at a German online-tutoring institute.

Let me be your source of knowledge, experience, wisdom and enthusiasm! Ready to tap in?

Having a teacher that doesn't only teach but also live the languages he speaks makes the learning experience with Viktor really fun and effective. Thank you so much!

If you get a chance to learn with Viktor you can consider yourself very lucky! He tought me spanish for over a year before I went to Colombia and it was thanks to his help that I could get a good grip of the language so fast and am now fluent. What I found so special about him was the incredible combination of knowledge, teaching skills and personal warmth. In other words: You will learn a lot, in a very eficient manner and gain a friend at the same time! Thank´s a lot Viktor it was absolutely great to learn with you, I hope to see you soon!

Teach (German) language by only speaking the subject language and only using examples and asking questions. No grammar explanations, no in-class writing exercises.
