Traditional language classes aim to teach you everything about the German language, even though you only need a fraction of it to pass your C-permit or naturalization test.
1-on-1 coaching isn’t just focused on the specific skills you need in the tests, it also fits your busy schedule.
To start, we need to know what exactly you still need to learn (otherwise we’d have to cover a bunch of things you already know — just like traditional language schools). We’ll first have an assessment call, you then get a written report of what you need to learn, and we have two calls to go through those topics in more detail.
I once heard a conversation about a bricklayer many years ago. Those involved called him the “lazy mason” because he did not make any superfluous movement that did not serve the construction of the wall. Nevertheless, his walls were finished much faster than those of his much younger colleagues. I took that to heart. Any effort that doesn’t lead to the goal is too much or a waste of time.
Therefore, I don’t want to invest more time in any one thing than necessary. This also applies to learning and teaching. I constantly ask myself: What is the best way for this person to learn this material successfully and efficiently? The answers vary depending on the person who wants to learn with me. Part of working with clients is finding the answer to this question together.
I have taught at several language schools in Basel and Zurich and worked as an Academic Manager in a language school developing language programs. In parallel I studied German as a foreign language and theories of language acquisition. Additionally, I completed the Master of Education and Competence Management in Berlin.
