Fun and effective German classes, Berlin and online

The best way to learn a new language is through natural interaction. And I believe that you learn most effectively when you feel at ease and when you are having fun!

You will see that each class is individually adapted to your personal learning style and that you can improve at your optimal level, because you will always be challenged but never overwhelmed.

I am an enthusiastic language learner myself and know the importance of a fun and knowledgeable teacher. Because I enjoyed learning with great teachers so much, I'm committed to be that for you in every class as well.

With this German class, you will get
• a very competent, patient, and fun tutor with years of experience
• a very supportive environment
• as many opportunities as possible to actually speak German, reflect on it, and improve
• 3-4 hrs of homework per lesson (if you want!)
• heaps of audio and video material as well as many exercises to help you practise all aspects of the German language
• and you will see how manageable the German grammar actually is!

Of course, you can adjust the classes to whatever you consider to be most relevant for you!

If you like my approach and want to improve your German, write me a message or book a lesson with me! I would love to help you with your German, whether in person or online!

You can start right away at any level!

Benedikt is a very friendly and patient person and I feel confident and at ease speaking in German with him.
Ce premier cours avec Benedickt a été vraiment super! Il est structuré, à l'écoute et à la recherche des besoins de l'apprenant! Je me réjouis de mon prochain cours!
He is patient and inspiring.
I have been taught by Benedict for just over 2 months and I feel my German has really progressed well in this short time. I always feel like I am being challenged but not to the point where I feel lost like I have done learning other languages. I enjoy the fact that my lessons are always adapted to my learning style too.
Premier cours réussi. Efficace et ludique jusqu'ici. La structure du cours est flexible et adaptable aux besoins de l'apprenant, et la méthode générale bien rodée.
...
This one-to-one coaching could be useful for you if you... - want to create a clear picture of your desired future and your individual path - want to activate your unique resources and strengths - want to transform inner insecurity into confidence in order to focus your inner power - want to expand your scope of action - want to use your gifts to co-create the transition towards a life-affirming and vital lifestyle in harmony with nature. I combine hypnosystemic, solution-focused and embodiment methods that are particularly well suited to quickly develop coherent solutions and to support you in living a vibrant, authentic and life-affirming life. In addition we get inspiration from our intuition, as well as elements from positive psychology, permaculture and nature.

Individualized German Online Tutoring for Business, School and Private
I am currently teaching German on a one on one base through individualized online teaching via zoom or any other online platform. I teach German grammar as well as conversational German and German for business and/or research. Please don't hesitate contact me to find out more about my teachings by asking questions and letting me know about your goals and concerns. I not only speak German as my mother tongue, but I also have excellent English skills and have taught adults and children in Japan, the USA and France. While living in Japan, I taught English to biologists of a biotech-company. For this purpose, I prepared current newspaper articles corresponding to the interests of the students and the teaching objectives for the classes. In class, the students and I used these articles to study the language, discuss the vocabulary and grammar as well as the language style used. In New York, I did not teach a language, but fashion design at the University (FIT Fashion Institute of Technology, NYC) for several years. All classes were taught in English with the student body consisting of international students, which required detailed preparation of the class. At the High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI), also in NYC, I taught fashion design and creation to students grade 9 - 12. Here too, the lessons were exclusively taught in English. For my teachings, I developed daily detailed lesson plans to not only make sure that the predetermined class goals were easily reached, but also to ensure that the class content was tailored to the students' needs and that a positive learning climate was promoted.

Advanced private lessons in German, English and law
Teacher with great experience and particularly motivated, I have always advanced my students and brought them successfully to their exams. After completing a full education in Germany and advanced training in Swiss law in Geneva, I want to put my skills at the service of students or students of any level in Geneva.

GERMAN LESSONS BEGINNERS CHILDREN/ TEENS (taught in English or French)
Do you want your children/teens to immerse themselves in the German language? The German lessons are usually taught in English in small groups (but can also be taught in French if the student doesn't know the English language). Private lessons can also be organised both in German (beginners) and in English (all levels). Children are said to be fast learners; through the interactive activities, they will be eager to learn the language, remember what they learned and apply their language skills in real life context. Why learn German? German has the largest number of native speakers in the European Union. German is among the ten most commonly spoken languages in the world. It's always a huge advantage to know the German Language when working in Europe and even in non-European countries, most of the time, employers will look after employees who can speak many languages and in particular German. Don't hesitate to contact me should you have further questions. It would be a huge pleasure to integrate your child/teenager in one of my classes. :-)

A1 course - German for beginners - preparatory course - German for foreigners
Beginners courses are offered online as well as on-site in Hanover. In a safe and relaxed atmosphere, you can use many interactive exercises to learn how to communicate in a new foreign language and to prepare for your everyday life in Germany. The intensive course A1: The A1 intensive German course is the perfect choice for you if you are looking for daily courses and want to get to grips with the language as quickly as possible. I recommend signing up for an intensive course when you need a comprehensive, thorough course with a quick plan. You determine the duration of the course yourself by making individual appointments. This course also prepares you for the A1 exam. The A1 course enables you to acquire the following language skills: - You can ask simple questions, ask for something, and respond to the request of others. - You can write simple phrases and sentences about yourself and others. - You understand the conversations and texts that deal with familiar things. The course is one-to-one, so you get 100% attention.

George
Language course (Romanian, French, German) for beginners and advanced
Hello ! I propose interesting methods for language learning! I offer language courses (German, French and Romanian) for children but also for adults! Since everyone has their own way of learning a language, I can vary my work methods depending on the student. The courses I propose are mainly for beginners who wish to learn Romanian, French or German. So I can use these 3 mentioned languages to teach but of course I can also use English or Spanish

Kevin
Individual German seminar for learning in turbo mode. All levels
THE PUPIL This announcement is aimed at both pupils and adults wishing to acquire the German language. I offer tailor-made individual German seminars for levels A1 (beginner) to C2 (perfect mastery). My goal is to make my student independent as quickly as possible. THE METHOD Contrary to popular belief, German is a very tame language. You are certainly familiar with the language courses at school. You are given lists to learn by heart and you are asked to do exercises completely unrelated to the reality of a speaker. We explain grammar to you by confusing French grammar and German grammar. This is why no one manages to express themselves in German having undergone this kind of method which has proven for a century that it does not work. With me, my student has a second chance thanks to intelligent theory and pragmatic methodology. Indeed, I am currently writing a book on the acquisition of foreign languages. THE TEACHER I have 5 years of experience teaching German and an average rating of 5/5. German is my mother tongue, with no particular accent. I master French as if it were a mother tongue. I am fluent in English and Portuguese and have an intermediate level in Latin as well as some basics of Greek. My personal linguistic goal at the moment is to master Latin fluently orally. THE PRICE A German course is not like a liter of gasoline which is the same at every service station and you make your choice naturally based on the price. On the other hand, there are huge differences in the quality of the courses offered on the market and before you can assess the price you must know the service that corresponds to it. I therefore invite you to test my service to get a good idea of the quality of my teaching. To maximize the quality of the courses, the sessions take place by video call in combination with Google Drive: - individual tailor-made course - interactive text document - interactive whiteboard - photos or scans can be imported - readable writing - instant written feedback during speaking - very flexible schedule - no time-consuming trips If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an appointment or to ask me your questions. I look forward to meeting you.

German as a foreign language Немецкий язык для иностранцев
The course is particularly useful for students with a foreign background. Since my mother tongue is Russian, I can be of particular help to the Russian-speaking students. The price for group lessons is reduced. There are some additional discounts.

Jenny
German course for each level, quality course by a passionate teacher
Personalized, effective and quality courses I adapt my courses and method to the student level. And my method depends on what you need: you want to practice your oral German? Let's talk!

I am 29 years old, I come from Germany, I am in very good listening accompanied by a great critical and constructive spirit. Eager for knowledge, ambitious and creative.

Conversation in Swiss-German at work - private lessons
Swiss-German is the first language spoken at work in Switzerland. Perfectly bilingual, I worked for more than 15 years in German-speaking Switzerland in managerial positions. If you are brought to speak this language in your work, we can practice together by - 30 min. (or 60 min.) on Skype, Telegram or Signal - 60 min. at the student's home or other place of his choice * To you to share with me your topics (sales, administrative questions, job interview), failing that I will bring topics adapted to your professional context.

Gaelle
Private lessons in German (grammar, vocabulary)
I am a foreign language student and have already completed an Erasmus semester in Germany. We can work on German grammar and vocabulary. We can also, if you wish, chat a bit in German to help you practice the language.

Containment promotion: German via online courses with a teacher of Berlin origin
Hello, High school student, you want to prepare your baccalaureate with confidence while supplementing and diversifying your knowledge of Germanic culture. In college, you need more grammar knowledge or you lack self-confidence. Ich kann Ihnen helfen. Of German origin, I live in Paris and have been teaching my mother tongue there for 20 years. Why German? Its structure is reassuring and formative. Then my students like to hear it other than through clichés. Working with teenagers is also giving them the keys to success. Each being is unique. My lessons are therefore personalized. I use multiple written supports ranging from storytelling to essay, for the older ones, through poetry and historical texts. Grammar is also always there ... To try is to adopt!
