I aim to prepare you for A,B and C Level German (exams) as effective, straight forward, focussed and in as little time as possible!
My vision is to create a learning journey that is empowering, stimulative and engaging, active and goal-oriented within a learning environment that stimulates reflexion, is flexible and self-directed and is matching YOUR needs as a learner.
My goal is to maximise your potential and to keep you and each learner valued, committed, engaged and motivated.
My dream is to connect to my students. That connection . . . that's the really important thing for me, because then I'm able to understand each learning style through understanding the person. My teaching style will therefore always vary as no learner is the same.
"I have learnt German from Susanne for three years. The best things about her for my situation are how she is very flexible in the times we can meet, and also very understanding of my needs, learning style, ability level, and interests, to create lessons that are challenging but certainly useful and fun.
She has a lot of different teaching resources and her experience means she can always explain well and solve problems. Also - she's just great company! I recommend learning with her for sure."
Dr Andrew Kennedy, 38 years young, from Sydney Australia, Anaesthetist & Clarinetist, German Level B1/ B2
Does your Company have a language strategy?
As companies seek to grow internationally they must consider how they wish their employees to communicate with each other. Developing a corporate language strategy is key to breaking down communication barriers and building a truly global and collaborative organisation. language is just one part of it. Successful international companies recognise the importance that culture plays. Although proficiency in a language allows the employee to communicate verbally in another culture, cultural awareness will provide the employee with the ability to find the best style to communicate effectively within the local culture, both verbally and non-verbally. Choosing how directly to speak, what eye contact level is appropriate and how to read between the lines to pick up nuances such as what was intentionally left unsaid are all important examples cultural skills to learn.
