Do you study German or want to brush up your skills? I will be happy to help you with improving your German in my online German conversation course for beginners and intermediates in October!
Online German conversation course
I am offering online German conversation courses for beginners and intermediates this fall and winter. Each meeting deals with a different topic and during the classes, we will work on grammar, vocabulary, and self-confidence in speaking German.
The course consists of up to 8 participants and has a duration of 45 minutes. We use Google Meet, 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.
When studying a language, speaking might be the hardest thing to master. Why is that so? Well, when reading or writing, we have a lot of time to look for the right words and organize the sentences according to grammar rules. But, when we speak, our conversation partner usually does not wait for 10 minutes until we found and formed everything we need to express ourselves. In addition, this fact and our own insecureness cause further pressure. As a direct consequence, we often cannot find the proper words we are looking for and completely mess up with the grammar. However, you should not bury your head in the sand. Since no one is born a master you can improve your skills by simply practicing them.
“Stefanie’s German class has been wonderful, I joined the online group class and have been able to improve my German language skills significantly. As a native German speaker and experienced teacher, Stefanie creates classes for any level, whether you have only basic knowledge of the language or are more experienced already. I greatly recommend her if you are looking to learn German!” (Pieter, Utrecht, Netherlands)
