ENGLISH I offer German classes from scratch for already 4 years. I have experience with groups in community centres and private classes and one year in teaching German online. For me a good pronounciation is pivotal and i don't get tired to correct my students on this. Every new student receives a paper with the most important pronunciation rules to always have them visibly in front of him/her. For the Advanced students I offer as well writing and correcting articles in the German Wikipedia. This has the advantage that the student chooses his favourite topic and is really motivated and the texts stay in the Wikipedia - even afterwards and serve the Commons. After the class is able to watch the class as many time as s/he likes to review the class. I suggest to al my students addiotional activities like watching german music with partially missing subtitle at web "lyricstraining" , read easy German news at the web "nachrichtenleicht" and change the surface of electronic devices like smartphones to German to come close to a language immersion and obtain and optimal learning effect.

I have access o a pronunciation database explaining for every sound the position of tongue and lip form and mouth opening and voice cord activity. 5) Clear-cut grammar explanation, but as a tool, not as an aim in itself. 6) Hints to interesting podcasts, videos, and easy reading books from level A1 onwards, including Duolingo, which i use myself to learn Italian for 800 days and language exchange possibilities accessible for you References: 2000 hours delivered online in 6 years (since 2016)/more than 1100 reviewed hours The explanation can be given in English, German , Spanish or intermediate Italian, preferring German to to help your learning process.(full immersion) Students need between 50 (extremely fast learner and very young ) and 220 classes to get to B1 (intermediate) level If you like to work more on your own and you are motivated I can support you as well as a language coach.I offer classes for absolute beginners of German as a native. I think a correct pronunciation is key to be understood by natives in Germany. I am a native German. I like to see how my students are getting empowered and can open new doors for personal development. I have alreday teaching experience since 2014 in civic centres in Barcelona and since 2016 i give online classes for German learners in Germany or worldwide.

He will focus a lot on the way you say your words. He is nice and understanding. I feel I have gotten better at German with his lesson. Great teacher.

I find Stefan a good teacher because, besides being very kind and attentive to each student's need, he is very serious regarding the punctuality in attending the lessons. I immediately found myself at ease with him as a person and professional teacher because when I had the first interview with him he showed genuine interest in what my goals were by asking me questions. In addition, when we exchange messages for communicating something, he cares about correcting my mistakes in German. For whoever wants to improve in German, either in writing or in speaking, I highly recommend this teacher.

Stefan communicates very well. He explains examples in a custom way. For example, I speak English and Spanish so when teaching German he tries to use examples in both languages to help me understand the words. He is patient and demonstrates the pronunciation in a way that is easily attainable. I enjoy his class and he challenges me to put in the effort necessary to achieve my goals.
