Finally becoming fluent in German

studygermanonline - german conversation course

Do you already study German but feel too insecure speaking? Did you already study German in the past and want to strengthen your oral skills? Or do you want to boost your German before going on vacation? – Joining my new German conversation course online might be the perfect solution for you! 

I am again offering two different German conversation courses online this winter/spring. The first class will start on September 21st. These courses consist of different topics for every meeting. During the classes, we will work on grammar, vocabulary, and your self-confidence in speaking German.

The course consists of up to 8 participants and has a duration of 45 minutes. We use 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 use the German language in a natural manner. You can find a detailed course plan here.
