German grammar explanations by an experienced German tutor

Hello! I'm Jens. I'm the founder and director of Olesen Tuition- one of the UK's leading German language schools. I have over 25 years of experience in my field and  successfully taught thousands of clients. On this blog, you will find tips on how to learn German or improve your existing skills. I regularly write posts about the infamous German grammar and  explain topics like the adjective declensions, the four cases, prepositions, and German word order. So if you're looking for answers to particular questions or you just want to improve your understanding of German grammar more generally, you've come to the right place! I also have posts that might be of interest to those who learn other languages, such as an A-Z guide to grammar terminology, an explanation on the different language levels from A1 to C2, reviews of the most popular online dictionaries and language learning apps, and I offer some insights on how to learn vocabulary.

Using this blog is easy. Search for answers to your German grammar questions by typing your questions in the site search below or use the menu with the main topics. Please feel free to post comments and questions you might have and I'll get back to you. And don't forget to subscribe to this blog to be informed about our latest posts and other news.
