Learning German post-Brexit

A lot has been written and speculated since the referendum about what Brexit actually means, the effects it might have on the UK and on Europe. Yet, one thing is certain: in a globalised world, no country can survive alone. So interacting with other nations and people remains as important as it's been before for the UK. Perhaps it becomes even more important post-Brexit as agreements will need be renegotiated and new deals be made. It is in this context that foreign languages do play a vital role, and German in particular. Why? In this phase of uncertainty and beyond, being able to communicate with business partners and companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in German will make your m

Native German Tutor in London - My Aims in Teaching German

As a native German tutor, the aim of my lessons is that my students read, write, understand and speak my mother tongue to the best of their abilities. Being a native speaker puts me in the position of working on my student's German in all aspects of language learning- from improving their pronunciation and comprehension of German words, expanding their vocabulary in "Hochdeutsch" (standardised German) and colloquial German, to perfecting their understanding of the intracicies of German grammar. Throughout my teaching career, I have brought over one hundred students up to fluency and many more to intermediate level with a unique combination of tailored vocabulary training, solid grammar found

How to master the German language and tame your inner demons. The road to fluency is a rocky one.

The German language is widely considered to be one of the most difficult languages in Europe, if not in the world.
