What Students Say


"I had the pleasure of having Jana as my German teacher at the Goethe-Institut in New Zealand for 6 months. Jana is a brilliant and gifted teacher who really understands how to get the best out of people. Jana's biggest strength is her ability to adapt her teaching technique to suit all learning styles. Even during frustrating and difficult times, Jana had a way to keep learning enjoyable. Any student would be lucky to have Jana as their teacher."


"Excellent! I did 3 hours a week for about 3 months. I got on very well with her, I always felt motivated and I noticed week by week that I was improving. Her lessons are very balanced between grammar speaking and writing. I really appreciated the practical advice, for example which book to buy or which homework to do. She also gave me some specific tips for the C1 exam. I would absolutely recommend, definitely another level!"


"Jana helped me with my Telc-A1 certification. She knows the examinations inside out and develops a learning program based on the strengths and weaknesses of the student. Her recommendations on training material were spot on. She made me prepare with a few mock examinations also. I scored very high thanks to her classes. Thank you, Jana :)"

"Jana prepares well for the lessons, targets my weaknesses, and provides me a variety of exercise types so that I am not bored. I was starting to stagnate in the past, as my mistakes were becoming more entrenched, but Jana makes sure that we tackle the root causes so that my German can improve past conversational"


"One of the best teacher I’ve ever had. She’s very nice, organised and has a positive attitude. The course is well structured, full of exercices and everything is well explained. She helped me a lot to prepare interviews in German and I could see good improvement after only taking a few hours"


"Jana's lessons are always well prepared, with variety of teaching materials and exercises. She adjusts her teaching methods to individual requirements of a student and lets you focus on the things that are important to you. I recommend lessons with Jana to anyone who wants to learn German in a stressless yet effective way! :)"


"Jana is a well-prepared teacher for German, who diagnostics the student, and offers a personalized studying path. She is proactive, and works hard to get the best of the students through motivation and kindly explanations. In my case, I got confidence and improvement in my german tone, so thanks Jana! Totally recommended!"


"We’ve been doing classes with Jana since January last year. She’s incredibly thoughtful with the way she manages our learning, adapting it to our changing needs and questions as they arrise. Lessons are varied and challenging but in no way painful! We would thoroughly recommend her”"

"Wonderful attitude and insight! Very detailed planner and comes prepared to teach on day one!"


"I took some lessons with Jana in preparation for an intensive German course I had signed up for. I really enjoyed the lessons because Jana is very friendly and easy to talk to. She is also a very competent and professional teacher, who knows her stuff. During each lesson, she would use the Preply platform to list new vocabulary as it came up and note down and correct the errors I had made; I found this very useful indeed. The lessons really helped improve my German and made me feel more confident prior to starting my course. Thank you, Jana!"

Your German Teacher

about Jana

Jana (she/her) was born in Braunschweig, Lower Saxony where she lived until she finished school. Soon after, the world became her home. 

Moving to Munich, Germany to work at the Goethe-Institut headquarters as a project manager, she also became a professionally trained and certified German as a Foreign Language Teacher  – I mean, where better to do this than at the Goethe-Institut itself?!

Missing the world though, she moved to the other end of it, to New Zealand, to teach at the local Goethe-Institut. Due to Covid, Jana also became a certified Online Tutor to teach her students in the best ways possible.

The Beginning of Wild German

As for many people, Covid changed everything and Jana began teaching 1:1 classes online and supporting her students with everything she learned during her education and professional work life. 

She soon noticed that most students have very similar needs: They wanted advice on how to get started, how to practice more in real life, and how to pass German exams needed for visas. 

And this is how it started: Learning German is more than just a course book!

Fun, modern & wild

This is how language learning should be like in Jana’ opinion. For this she uses her creativity, strategic thinking and the ability to find the best individual solutions for her students. These are Jana’s strong points and the reason why her students are so happy & successful.

In Wild German Jana combines her love for travelling, taking photos and writing. She regularly researches new learning techniques, joins conferences and teaches herself everything she needs to know. All for one purpose: 

Helping German learners all over the world to learn German easily and with fun & confidence.

Jana loves accompanying her students on their journey and being part of their success – may it be an exam, a job interview or acquiring the skills to communicate with German speakers in everyday life.
