German language (or literature) lessons (beginner, intermediate and advanced) from native speaker

This class is for anyone who wishes to learn German from someone with native level skills. Whether it is to learn the basics as a beginner or to hone essay-writing skills. Can comfortably adapt to any curriculum (IB, A-Level, GCSE).
Alternatively, if desired, I can help develop more analytical literary skills and give guidance on how to study German Literature.
In both cases, I prioritise verbal dialogue as well as writing tasks, particularly for more advanced levels.
I am very flexible when it comes to the structure of lessons/their intensity and feel it is usually best to discuss this on an individual basis.

Sara
Native German Speaker offering classes around Edinburgh and online
Du wolltest schon immer Deutsch lernen oder deine bestehenden Deutschkenntnisse verbessern? Lass uns dies gemeinsam angehen! About me👩: I am Swiss and a native Swiss German, German and Italian Speaker. I have recently moved to Edinburgh and I am very passionate about learning languages myself. I'm an intermediate French and Spanish Speaker and I'm currently learning Mandarin Chinese. I'd like to share my passion and help you learn German. I have experience tutoring children but I am also able to provide interesting lessons for adults. My Methodology👍: I think the best way to learn a language is through immersion. During our lesson we will speak as much German as possible and tailor our lessons to your needs. Whether you like to learn German for travelling purposes, work or even just for fun, let me know what you need and I'll provide the necessary learning materials and prepare fun and interactive lessons. This is what you can expect from my German lessons💥: • fun, patient and encouraging one-to-one classes • lots of talking time for you to practise your speaking skills • homework for you to review the lesson content and practise more • writing exercises (I will correct them and provide you feedback) • occasionally I will send you an exam in order to track your progress and identify areas which we will have to work on in future lessons Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to book a class. Thank you

Luciano
Qualified Italian student giving Latin and Ancient Greek lessons in Edinburgh.
I am studying Social Anthropology and Politics at the University of Edinburgh. Classics are one of the biggest interests of mine; I started studying Latin and Ancient Greek languages and literature 6 years ago and I have been teaching for three years. I think studying these languages led me to be more aware of who I am as well as understand what is really worth. Latin (Ancient greek too) lessons consist of two different parts: grammar and literature. By studying grammar you are not going to just receive boring notions about the structure of the language, but you are going to deepen processes and rules that form Latin; with this method we are going to discuss about Latin and Greek mindset and then discuss about important themes studied by ancient people in literature. Furthermore, according to your needs and goals, we can exercise on translation of texts.

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, spelling - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: The objective is above all to acquire effective tools. The pupil will thus be able to learn to structure his ideas, to argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and to enrich his vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Peishan
Chinese turor for Chinese/ Mandarin (simplified and traditional )
Giving my background in Foreign Languages and Literature as my bachelor study, and Adult and Continuing Education as my master degree, I gain great professional abilities in languages and education. Since I was 18 years old, I've been offering language teaching to the students, who are from 5-70 years old. I possess a wide range of Mandarin teaching experiences that I've given one-to-one and group classes before, and even online classes to people all over the world, through which I gained all the experiences teaching people with all the different culture and also all levels from A1-C2, and even with the clients who need to prepare for Mandarin verification exams( HSK, Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì). When it comes to the most forgettable teaching experience I've ever had, I think it was my former job that I gave language and culture class in a community university for 3.5 years. There, I merged language teaching, diversified culture, with European and South-East Asian cooking, and it was certainly a great fun. I am now also working in the international school in Geneva for the IB exam system, which is pretty challenging, but it broadens my abilities. With more than 10 years of working in the Mandarin as well as English tutor/ teaching field, I believe my qualifications will match your learning requirements.

German private lessons for beginners and intermediates.
Are you looking for a German teacher? I am not only an experienced language tutor but most of all, big languages lover. When teaching, I try to use creative and interesting methods to understand the language. If only you wish to have language classes in a nice atmosphere with a strong focus on effective learning, my methods could help you to learn grammar and vocabulary faster and encourage you to speak.

Olusikemi
ENGLISH AND GERMAN CLASSES FOR WRITING AND SPEAKING
​English and German are two of the most dominant and essential languages nowadays. Growing up bilingual with these two was a challenging, humbling and exciting experience. Now I would like to share my knowledge on effortlessly switching between them with you! The lessons will be hands-on, but easily understandable and true-to-life, so you can go and use what you've learned right away! There will be homework, and I place great value on pronunciation, as that is what makes or breaks a language "performance" in my eyes. I will try and use whatever foundation and experiences you have and integrate that into the course so that you will be able to make better connections and learn faster. You and I can figure this out together! <3

Andrés
Online course for German as a foreign language with all material included
In my one-to-one online courses, you will find a room just for yourself, where you will be coached within a German speaking setting. Each lesson depends on your needs and aims, which may be to improve in a specific linguistic feature as pronunciation, grammar, spelling or vocabulary. Or it may be to work on a specific goal, e.g. an official language exam, finding work in the German speaking countries or bureaucratic issues. Or it can just be conversation in order to gain fluency. In our class I will also point out what you can do during the week in order to further improve your German language skills and get closer to your goals and I will hand out to you the study material you need.

Marie
Learn German by SKYPE (students or adults)
Having studied literature in Germany for two years, I offer a German course for all levels. I can support a student who is just starting out in learning this beautiful and complex language. I am also able to help more advanced students in the mastery of the language and to allow them to discover the Germanic culture. Learning this language for eleven years, I am able to transmit a method that is both interesting and rigorous. I organize my lessons in a fun way, working on grammar but also texts, videos to better understand the German-speaking culture. I can also help with the preparation of the German Baccalaureate exams.
