"Amazing course! One thing that makes this course great is how you get more natural learning experiences with the journals, the journey videos, and when you travel with Sonja to Berlin at the end. I hope to see another more advanced course that builds upon the skills in this one with even more cultural insights from Sonja." - Adam Schlag
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who is interested in the German language and still at the very beginning of their language learning journey. Intermediate students can also profit from countless features of the course as it does get quite intense towards the end.
Germanix Learning focuses on developing gamified language learning experiences which are immersive, story-driven and entertaining.
Learning a new language is a long journey. While not everyone has the luxury to travel to other countries to experience language immersion, a simulated journey would be a good substitution where learners can immerse themselves in an adventure with the objective of practicing real life situations and challenges.
This leads to a more engaged learning experience that facilitates better knowledge retention.
I am a professional foreign language teacher, specialising in my mother tongue German. I have had the pleasure of teaching in different countries and have worked with students of many different nationalities. I myself have successfully learned several foreign languages on my own from zero to a fluent level and therefore can feel with my students and understand very well where they might struggle. Over the years I think I have figured out some ways how to best learn a foreign language, no matter what level one is at. In my online courses I am trying to implement these personal experiences and tricks in order to give my students a very different learning experience compared to what they might probably be used to.
" It is not about how complex is the topic we wish to learn (or the skills we would like to develop) but how we learn it, which method we utilize, and if our whole potential is involved. e-Learning is a wonderful field in which a good self-education method, powerful multi channel learning materials and qualified trainers with coaching skills and tools can produce a digital learning experience as affective and advanced as classroom and experiential training"
" Education and self-education combined in a e-learning program create both: a learning process and the enhancement of Matrix-Q Intelligent Quotient of the student.
Matrix-Quotient of Intelligence sign the individual or collective ability to solve challenges by approaching them from several perspectives simultaneously. Matrix-Q Intelligence is natural in human individuals but needs to be triggered and trained through experiences and challenges.
I do believe that by providing well designed challenges, the learning process can be enhanced, as well as new skills developed. To learn by doing, playing, simulating challenges or developing projects is very effective path for learning, which reduces the time necessary for achieving goals"
I am a trainer since 1993, my focus is on experiential training. Along 1997-2017 i have developed novel methods and algorithms for education and self-education i do now utilize for the design of e-learning programs as trainer and as consultant. [ Matrix-Q Education, Matrix-Q Intelligence, Matrix-Q Brain GYM methods which help students learn and also advance their skills and Matrix-Q of Intelligence]
Knowledge, skills and information transfer is essential for personal, professional, culture and business development.
As a Consultant, Coach, Trainer, Researcher in fields: Strategic Management, Leadership, Effectiveness, Family-Life-Work Balance, Education, Gamification, Sustainable Development i experience that an effective method (as Matrix-Q Education) is a necessary tool.
As consultant i also support Start ups, SDG Entrepreneurs, and trainers with Matrix-Q Algorithms and a Business Incubation Program Online for which e-learning programs production is necessary.
I have also several years experience (2000-2017) as researcher and trainer in the field communication, languages and culture. How we learn languages is a good example on how we learn in general any kind of topic. If a good method is utilized for learning a language, the student not only will communicate and perceive the world through the eyes of a new culture, but also advance own natural skills for learning in general. The Matrix-Q Education method i have developed would help language trainers as well, advance the quality of their e-learning materials production and effectiveness of their e-learning programs. As surplus, their students will enhance their ability for learning, self-education, and Matrix-Q Intelligence. To learn a new language is also an ideal path to enhance own intelligence, develop soft skills, communication and cultural understanding, in general to perceive and interact with the world from other perspectives. For citizens of a multicultural global culture, it would be helpful every one learn at least 3 languages.
