Testimonial: “The conversation course is one of the best ways to improve your speaking skills, highly recommended.” (Liran, Germany)
I am offering two different German conversation courses online this fall/winter. These courses consist of different topics for every meeting. During the classes, we will work on grammar, vocabulary, and self-confidence in speaking German. There is a max. of 6 participates per 45-minute meeting (Zoom), and the students are given the material beforehand for preparation. Besides, I am writing down the essential vocabulary that was unclear during the class. This way, the participants can practice and use it later on. During the sessions, everybody will be able to participate, ask questions, and naturally use the German language. You can find a detailed course plan at the end of this page and read more testimonials here.

“The conversation classes with Steffie are very effective. The list of questions sent in advance helps me to prepare and look for words I will need and use during the class, but through the answers of the other participants and the vocabulary Steffie adds online I also tend to improvise. This way, I improve even more my speaking skills. I particularly appreciate how Steffie manages the class so that everyone has the same amount of time to speak. Online added vocabulary and the fact that we have access to the list after the lesson is also a great asset. Those classes are exactly what I was looking for, and I highly recommend them!” (Delphine, Israel)
