I found Julia after being unhappy with group German classes and feeling that I wasn’t making the progress I needed. I can only say that it was the best decision I could make. She’s a great teacher, not only in terms of knowledge of the language and how to make you learn but also being flexible to your needs and adapting the classes accordingly. As only a foreigner learning German can know, this is not an easy process and can even be a traumatic experience. Having Julia as my teacher, however, has facilitated the process and transformed the class hours into joyful occasions. I absolutely recommend her to anyone on the journey of learning German.
THE A1 COURSE
European language levels are classified with a letter followed by a number. The levels goes from A1 to C2. What anything of these proficiency levels mean, has been codified by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
A1 is the simplest level, the level for completely beginners 👶.
In the A1 course of German, you will learn all the basic vocabulary, reading, grammar, and comprehension.
You learn the ropes, starting with the basic steps: greetings, introducing yourself, ordering at a restaurant, and asking for help. Simple German phrases, enough to hold a basic conversation with a native speaker.
And for the first 1 million bookings, there is a special lesson: curses and bad words in German 😆.
An A1 level speaker can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at satisfying needs of a concrete type. He can introduce himself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he lives, the people he knows and the things he has. He can interact in a simple way as long as the other person speaks slowly and clearly and is ready to help.
MY TEACHER SECRETs
Teaching a complex topic like quantum physics... 🙃... German language isn't easy at all.
What are the keys for a successful teaching? Empathy and commitment. Empathic teaching means you need to establish an empathic connection with your class and adapt your teaching methods, your rhythm, yourself, to the class. For example, breaking an intense grammar lesson in more sessions, before the student gets tired and unreceptive.
How does my commitment affect you? Because my online group courses are cut ✂️ on your needs, to help you to learn the language in a relaxed and enjoyable way. To find the best resources and the best explanations, the one that work for you.
There isn't really much rocket science. Home-office, smart working, are nowadays familiar to almost everyone. Unfortunately!
Either Skype or Teams can be both used for the online lessons. If you need help with the installation just follow the support link on the bottom of the page.
The equipment you need is simply a pc (better than a smartphone) or a tablet, with a decent camera and an headset. And of course a fairly stable internet connection. Plus your text book to follow along.
Let’s give the speech to my students. These are Google reviews, spontaneously written by some of my students who have learned German with my classes.
I have been seeing Giulia for the last 2 years and she is amazing! She made the task of learning German achievable and at times, dear I say, even fun! I went from not knowing a single word, to now being a confident and capable german speaker. She has always been very supportive, flexible and understanding. The fact that her English is great only further facilitates her native English students as at the start speaking in English made the whole process much less intimidating and more productive. I couldn’t have wished for a better german teacher. Vielen Vielen Dank Giulia!
I am extremely grateful for having her as a teacher. She focus on what you need in order to progress much faster. For me was pushing my speaking skills und Ich spreche Deutsch. Vielen Danke Giulia
Julia is an amazing teacher, I like working with her a lot. She is committed, precise, helpful and supportive. I study with her for 1,5 years now, I have noticed the development. I have only good experience with her therefore I recommend her to anyone.
Maybe you want to learn something about me, before booking a course. If not, feel free to skip this section.
I HAVE BEEN TEACHING GERMAN TO STUDENTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD FOR 14 YEARS.
I have a degree in Linguistics from the LMU University of Munich, what technically makes me a grammar nerd 🤓. Anyway don't worry, we are going to have fun with the German language, putting the focus of our German classes on breaking the ice 🧊 with real life conversations.
