Client reviews of our German lessons

The most important indicator of our success is the feedback we receive from our clients. We are very grateful for all the excellent reviews we have received. You will find some of their comments below. 

Erik K., Professor

"Jens Olesen is the best teacher with whom I have ever studied.  A man of tremendous sensitivity and compassion, he really understands not only the linguistic needs of his students, but the emotional requirements as well.  He works wonders to help students overcome the anxieties of approaching a challenging language for the first time. He is highly professional, dedicated, reliable, and he has a great sense of humour to boot.  I would recommend him without any reservations whatsoever."

Gerad K., Acupuncturist

"Jens is a great teacher. He knows how to keep the session friendly and open while simultaneously keeping the teaching on track. This way it never feels boring or difficult. The grammar that can normally feel difficult and clunky seems to slip in without effort making the session feel fun and light rather than a heavy, back breaking lesson."

Lars S.,Travel Industry

"I couldn’t recommend Jens highly enough.  He combines a serious and professional approach with a charming and amusing personality making (re)learning German a real pleasure. I had been unhappy with my Goethe group course and was about to give up; having discovered Jens I’m really pleased I didn’t!"

On our German language blog "Auf Deutsch, bitte!", you'll find a wide range of posts on the German language- ranging from adjective ending rules in German, the German cases, prepositions in German to German word order. We also discuss whether German is a difficult language to learn and how many words there are in the German language. So check out our blog.
