Start in die Woche / Start in den Tag
If you are an early riser and would like to start the day with German, this is the right place for you: In 30 minutes or 2x 15 minutes you can talk with others: How was your weekend? What are your plans for today? What’s on your mind right now?
You need a break from your day or just want to chat with someone? Then get a hot drink of your choice ready, get comfortable and have a chat about your day with another German learner. What’s going really well today? What’s the plan for the rest of the day?
This call focuses on good old grammar. Conjunctions & subjunctions, nominalizations, passive voice – the spectrum is almost endless.
Many German learners need German for their job. To avoid sweating in real-life meetings, we practice different situations and the appropriate idioms so that you are well prepared for the real world.
At the beginning of the month you will receive a film suggestion and then have 3-4 weeks to watch the film and prepare for the call in terms of content.
Films not only give you an authentic insight into the culture and art of filmmaking in Germany, but above all they convey a realistic use of language, which can be completely different depending on the genre and the plot.
German & Sea
This call has a different focus topic each month: vacations by the sea, sharks on the Great Barrier Reef, plastic in the sea.
You will receive a worksheet with texts adapted to the content, a vocabulary list (German/English/your native language), idioms and potential tasks from which you can choose which are interesting or relevant for you. You can modify the tasks so that the learning effect is the greatest for you.
In this call the focus is on strategy and methodology. We discuss your goals together and develop an individual learning plan that is adapted to your needs.
At the beginning of each quarter we set your new goals, look at the interim status after 6 weeks and evaluate again at the end of the quarter: Which goals did you achieve? Why (not)? What can we change/adjust?
Practice with native speakers
An absolute highlight for sure! Every third Saturday of the month a native speaker will visit us in our Slack channel and share their day with us – an Advent Sunday in the Christmas season, child care & house cleaning, a bike tour through the Elm.
These won’t be German teachers which means they will communicate in authentic German which they normally use in their everyday life!
