Description

This is the ultimate course for all those who are starting out their journey of learning the German language and are looking for a new, innovative and effective way to memorize all those new words and the German grammar! Everyone knows that learning German isn't always a walk in the park, but with this course it can now be a walk on the beach :) Relaxation and a positive mindset are the key to effective learning and the stunning, gently moving nature backgrounds of this course will put you in the right mindset to immerse yourself in the German language and get better and more fluent in little time! 

All the words are handwritten and pronounced by a native German speaker, so that you will learn the right spelling and pronunciation right from the beginning. 

The grammar part is kept very clear and concise and is divided in short and easy-to-understand parts and most topics include a brief quiz at the end so that you can check your understanding of the topic. 

Learning German shouldn't be a drag and with this course you will "float" through the learning process! Join me at the beach :)

Who is the target audience?

It does contain basic grammar topics and exercises, you can have a look at the curriculum to see what is offered and whether is suits you
  • It is for people who are in the earlier stages of learning this language and want to try something new, unconventional and fun!
  • If you get bored in the process of trying to memorize vocabulary and grammar because it seems very dull and repetitive, then this course is for you!

German Tutor

I am a German language tutor who was born and raised in Munich, Germany. I have been teaching my native language to people both online and offline and I find teaching very rewarding. I have been living in English-speaking countries including the U.S. and England for more than 10 years and therefore understand the challenges that come with speaking a foreign language as well as adjusting to a new culture. I believe that learning a language is most effective when you are having fun and when it happens in a natural way.
