Hello! I'm Jens. I'm the founder and director of Olesen Tuition- one of London's leading German language schools. I'm an Oxford-educated German tutor with over 25 years of experience in teaching the German language and I have successfully taught thousands of clients. On this blog, you will find my tips on how to learn German from scratch or improve your existing skills, all based on my first-hand experience of teaching clients at all proficiency levels and from diverse backgrounds.

I also publish posts that might be of interest to those who are learning 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.
