Learn German in a virtual classroom
Learn German online in a virtual classroom, with up to 6 participants, is the most cost-efficient way to learn German.
It gives you the possibility to learn German with the fun-factor that you usually have in a class with other mates.
Online language classes are interactive and engaging as traditional classes. Especially if the German tutor is able to keep students’ attention level high, otherwise… well, look at the artwork below.
Anyway, no problem, among the innovations of a virtual German language course there is the possibility to record the lesson so that it can be reviewed later.
What is a virtual classroom
A virtual classroom is a online group course where students meet a tutor in an online (virtual) room. It is a modern alternative to the physical classroom. With the teacher and the students connected through the internet and a software that helps to have a real classroom experience.
In my German virtual classroom, I have set a maximum of 6 language learners. Keeping the class small guarantee an efficient learning experience.
Other possibilities to learn German online are the 1:1 class, or the pair-class (two students only).
About me, your German tutor 👩🏫
I graduated in Linguistics from Munich’s University. Since then, I have been tutoring languages for thirteen years.
To people from all over the world 🌏, adults, and children, in individual and group courses.
Recently I have launched my online language teaching service. Focusing on the best techniques and strategies to learn the German language completely online.
The language courses
Let’s see a rough categorization of German language classes depending on the number of lessons per week:
- Soft. Once or twice a week, to learn the language calmly but with solid foundations. Obviously, it is the most requested. It is right for you if you have no special needs, such as tight deadlines.
- Intensive. Probably you need to speak German in a short time, because of a deadline or similar. Two hours a day immersed in the language will make a proficient speaker out of you.
- Semi-intensive. With a frequency between the generic and the intensive. For example, two lessons twice a week.
Based on the targeted learners I offer the following courses:
- For children 🧒. It’s a language class with a lot of fun and playing. Of course, all in German and with teaching methods suitable for children. And you can’t do more than 45 minutes at a time because children easily lose attention.
- Companies. For companies that are really committed to guaranteeing the best integration of their foreign students.
- For nurses or doctors. Because there is a major shortage of these two categories of workers in German speaking countries, there are also courses and exams specifically dedicated to them.
Or, based on the purpose of your learning:
- Holidays. You are planning a visit to Berlin or a tour of Munich’s castles and want to surprise your boyfriend with your impressive German.
- Language test preparation. It is not always easy to catch the difference between the many German exams: testDAF, Goethe-Zertifikat, telc, DSH. The content of the course is a bit different, also because there is often a close deadline.
- Conversation course 💬. Language learners often do the mistake to focus too much on grammar. Result? They are not able to interact with a counterpart speaker for a real conversation. In a conversational class the focus is on naturally acquiring the fluency through speaking German.
Be able to interact with other German speakers is the ultimate scope of the German course.
BUT, speaking German like a native speaker?
At a glance, it might sound highly unrealistic. Indeed, it just requires lot of practice, many years of practice to be honest.
This is not what we are aiming at in our language course.
It is very important to define a target for the learner, this can simply be defining the level of German you want to reach, A1 for example.
The definition of the level is already a good target, because the levels are codified, and one knows what to expect for a given level.
Language level 🌡️
In Europe, the levels of proficiency are indicated as A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2.
Let’s see what these levels mean:
- levels A1 and A2 refer to a beginner knowledge level of German. At the end of the course you know the most grammar and will be able to elaborate easy sentences with a limited German vocabulary
- levels B1 and B2 refer to an intermediate level. You have a fairly comprehension of German, and you start to be independent in your use of the language
- levels C1 and C2 indicate an advanced German knowledge. You are completely independent and can get away in any situation requiring an advanced linguistic knowledge. You are fluent in any situation
Because I’m a native speaker teacher I can cover all levels of the language. Let’s just see what language skills you currently have and what level you want to reach! It will be our journey to learning German.
