Hey there! I am the founder of "German to go" and have been teaching German since 2004 - private and group tuition in various countries as well as on Skype. Now, I would like to make the material I created over the years available to more people. I am a passionate language learner myself and I love travelling. From 2005 to 2010, I studied "Languages and Business Studies" in Aix-en-Provence (France), in Newcastle-upon-Tyne (UK) and in Cologne (Germany). This was followed by an internship in Ottawa (Canada), where I met my husband, who is Brazilian. We lived in Brazil for 2 years and now we are back in my city of origin, Berlin, in Germany. We have a little daughter. I hope you enjoy my courses!
