« Extremely competent is the quality that comes to mind when describing teacher Antje. We had the pleasure of having you as our German teacher for two years, during which time we not only developed our language skills but also absorbed much of the Germanic culture.

Berlin native and experienced highschool teacher with a Master's degree in English offering German lessons for beginner to advanced conversation level

Methodology

Yes, I won't lie to you: learning a new language is unfortunately connected with a bit of work. But as with all things in life: wanting it is the first and most important step and you are here for a reason.
I'll be there to teach you the basics in grammar, sentence construction and pronunciation, so you can take your first wobbly steps.
I'll provide you with learning methods and material for the time after our lesson finishes (yes, it's called homework and you'll love it once you figured out it gives you at least two or three lessons for the price of one), so you can take further steps independently, when it comes to reading, writing and listening comprehension and the confidence to converse. You'll be off to a running start in no time.

And yes: learning a language is about repetition, but so is learning that favourite song of yours. You wouldn't know the lyrics, if you hadn't repeated it for about a hundred times. By the same token, I will base our lessons on your likings and interests whenever I can, so you will be intrinsically motivated to learn. It's what's called student-centred approach. That also includes that YOU will do most of the talking to get as much practice as possible and the confidence you need when learning or improving a new language.

Background

I studied the art of teaching a language at Humboldt-University Berlin, graduating in English and Physical Education (so I know everything about dedication and perseverance as well, should you ever get a little tired of studying ;) My experience includes:
- 5 years teaching German as a foreign language, English and P.E. at a highschool in Berlin
- 2 years of private teaching and tutoring German as a foreign language in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- 2 years of teaching German as a foreign language, English and P.E. at a German International School (Escola Alemã Corcovado) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
- 2 years of student teaching (English and P.E.) at a highschool in Berlin
- 2 years teaching German in small groups or individually as a teaching assistant at a highschool in London, Great Britain

Antje is a very valued colleague and mentor. She teaches her students in a competent, committed and jovial manner. I was able to learn a lot from her about motivating lesson content and how to relate to students. Swapping teaching ideas with her is always a fruitful and inspiring exchange.
