LanguaTalk is a small startup focused on facilitating effective language learning. We find and support the very best teachers who provide 1-on-1 lessons that are personalised to the individual needs of students. Tutors set their own hourly rate, so whatever your budget is, there should be a suitable tutor for you below.
Depending on your level in German, we come up with topics to talk about in order to practice your conversation skills: travel, politics, the cities we live in, art, culture, the news, your job, your dreams and goals - anything :) It doesn't matter if you're fluent or not, I will adjust to your level (B1 and up) so that you don't feel overwhelmed. Language learning should be fun!
Corrections and suggestions will be provided in the chat box. (this is not a grammar class though so explanations will be kept brief to focus on the conversation and improving fluency.
Given my background as a Communications Director at a global company I'm also happy to include business topics if that's of interest to you. (as well Mock Interview Sessions are possible)
My classes are NOT for absolute beginners. As it is a conversation class, you must be able to hold at least a basic conversation.
I look forward to talking with you! :)See Reviews From Students
Hello my name is Maria, I’m from Germany and currently I live in Bolivia.
I myself was raised multilingual and I live in a foreign country. So, I know how hard and sometimes even frustrating it can be to learn a language. That’s why I would like to help you. If you are a beginner its best to start with some structure. So, vocabulary, grammar and the structure of a sentence in general. If you are already advanced, we can concentrate on pronunciation and conversation. Of course, always in connection with listening, reading and writing.
I already helped some students to prepare for their Goethe and Telc Test in the Levels A1 to C1.See Reviews From Students
I am a certified German and primary teacher from Switzerland. I teach all the main subjects like German, English, History, Math and Science. On this platform I will concentrate on teaching German.
The first step is to set your language goal and to evaluate what you already know. From there I will set up the necessary steps to achieve your goals. Most important is to have fun learning German! I use different tools like textbooks, videos, learning apps, music and many more. Please notice that I don`t teach kids.
If you have any questions, we can discuss them during your free trial lesson.
Have a great day.
My name is Sandra and I am a qualified teacher with a Masters of Education in German and English as a Second Language, Physical Education , Religion and Art with 8 years of experience in teaching at various schools in Germany , Australia, Asia, Canada. My teaching style is very interactive and I try to adjust it to everyone's needs. Every student is different and learns differently. My goal is to equip my students with tools and also to inspire them with my enthusiasm for the German language & culture. My teaching method is to focus on the 4 skills : listening , speaking, reading and writing . Those 4 skills will be covered in every lesson except the student is requesting to focus only on the conversational part etc. I'm flexible and can accomodate to every students needs. I love to travel and have been to various countries all of the world and taught German and English on the way.See Reviews From Students
I am a qualified German/Swiss German teacher with 4 years of online language teaching experience. Based since 1999 in the UK, I have worked in different fields. I started my career as a violinist (Bachelor in Music Pedagogy,Advanced Diploma of Performance) , performing as a freelance musician in orchestras (Switzerland) and as a chamber musician, also teaching and preparing young students for ABRSM Grade Exams in the UK. Then I got into the London film and acting scene and did various supporting gigs in UK Film Studios and sets in London. In 2017 I trained as a Language Teacher in connection with staying in South Korea, which gave me a new perspective in terms of new technologies and online teaching, being geographically independent. Am also host of the Talk Show/Podcast 2x2 which can be watched on Youtube!
I appreciate being able to communicate with students around the world. I have prepared students for Goethe A1 - B2 exams and Swiss Citizenship Exams, lessons are individually tailored to help students reach their language goals, we work with German learning books, online videos and texts, media and literature (Easy Readers). There are less teaching materials for Swiss German, we use Hoi zäme or voCHabular, both Züridütsch materials, or Sali Zäme, Basel dialect. There is also a Bern dialect book or song texts, but it's always a bit of a search and mix and match. If you like a clear structure I suggest you to learn German up to about B1 and then try your luck at Swiss German!;)See Reviews From Students
Hi! I'm Tabea. I was born in Heidelberg (Germany) and I grew up in Spain, so I am bilingual in German and Spanish.
I started working as a German tutor while I was still travelling a lot between Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece and the UK. I soon found out that I really enjoyed online teaching, since I had the chance to meet people from all over the world. I love learning things about other cultures and languages, as well as improving my teaching skills.
My lessons are quite flexible: I believe there is not only one method for learning a language. Students can be very different and even one person won't feel the same way every day. Therefore I take care to adapt each lesson to my students' needs. Do you feel you need a little help in conversation? Let's pick different topics and practise your speaking/listening abilities. Or are you stuck with grammar? Let's sit down and answer all your questions step by step.
German is a very rich language and sometimes it can be challenging, so there might be ups and downs on the road. But the harder you push yourself, the more rewarding it will be when you reach your goals!
If you are interested in taking German lessons, I'd love to meet you for a trial session!
Hello, my name is Luca-Curtis, I am 28 years old and currently live near Hamburg.
I am a full-time teacher, teaching German and Physical Education at the lower Secondary level.
I have previously lived in countries in Asia and Africa and taught there as part of volunteer work. I am good with children, but I have also taught the language to adults.
I have studied in the sports and business field and before my time at the school, I worked as a Deputy Director and Instructor.We work together on your weaknesses and improve them in such a way that over time you don't even notice that you used to have difficulties with them. I adapt the lessons individually to you, so that you achieve an improvement in your language skills as quickly as possible.
I would be thrilled to meet you. I am very interested in the person sitting across from me. Take the first step towards me and together we will make sure that your language skills improve and reach your desired level. I am open to any level, whether beginner or already at native speaker level - There are no limits downwards and upwards. :)See Reviews From Students

Hey my name is David from Germany, currently living in Peru and i would love to help you learning german :)
The most important is to have fun and feel comfortable in the lesson, in the first lesson we going to get to know each other and then set your goals, personalize the classes to your needs and learning rhythm.
It doesn't matter if you just started or already got the basics, if you want to improve your conversation skills or you need help with a special topic. My goal is that you get to understand the German language and will be able to speak it properly in everyday life.
I have been teaching German online for all ages, from beginner to advanced, for 2 1/2 years now.
It will be a pleasure to meet you.See Reviews From Students
Hi, I am Elmar from Austria. With a great passion for teaching German and English, I have been helping students of different levels worldwide.

For intermediate and advanced learners, I can explain complex grammar and perfect your skills from all aspects. For students with specific needs, I am ready to help with language exams, business or daily conversational needs, etc.
Additionally, I am from the financial industry with decent knowledge in various topics. It will be my pleasure to share my culture and be your Austrian friend!See Reviews From Students
I have 8 years experience of language teaching, as a selfemployed private teacher for one-on-one classes. My classes are well structured, according to your needs. We work with science based teaching material that helps you to develop your German skills in a progressive way. We practice reading, writing, listening and of course speaking with a wide array of exercises. I consider grammar as an important part of language learning, but only to help you to develop your communicative abilities. I provide homework after each class to help you deepen and revise the new content.
Hallo! My name is Eda, I am half German and half Turkish. Currently learning my fifth language, I know exactly how hard it can be to find motivation while studying a language.
If you are someone who likes to learn by actively training their reading, speaking, listening, and writing abilities, wants to study grammar through games and quizzes, and prefers fun activities over passive, standard classes, I am here to help!
I have been teaching German ever since I was in high school when I taught German to exchange students. During university, I started teaching group classes to children and teenagers as well as translating and interpreting for the German consulate in Turkey. After graduating from university, I started teaching full-time as an online teacher on different platforms. During my career as a teacher, I gathered experience teaching young children, adults as well as elderlies, one-on-one classes as well as groups.
I would love to meet you soon, feel free to book a trial lesson!
Tschüss!See Reviews From Students
Whether you want to travel in Germany and master daily basic communication, study and read German literature, communicate with business partners or live in Germany, I'd love to support you on your way. From total beginner to pre-academic level, levels A1-C1, preparing for the Goethe Certificate or the TELC, I invite you to learn German with me in a motivating and interactive way.
For now I teach in individual settings and currently undergo a German Teacher Training at the Goethe Institute.
Depending on your goals, my teaching approach varies from a more practical focus of daily communication and discussion, presentations and speaking in front of people to reading and understanding different kinds of text. The very base in all of these is a safe space that welcomes mistakes, so that you can learn from them.
I love using diverse learning material and resources and will provide you with that. Once we start, you will also figure out what material you enjoy learning with the most.
I hope to see you soon to help you along your German learning journey!See Reviews From Students
Are you looking for someone to simply talk to and practice German? My teaching style is engaging, patient and creative. I am practiced in teaching children (10 and older), teenagers and adults. I have lived in the United States for 7 years. Therefore, I am experienced with different language environments and the challenges of studying another language.
My focus lies mainly on conversation. I help you to form sentences and to learn new words from all kinds of interesting topics. In so doing, I help you to become confident in German. Having fun while learning a new language is one important pillar to my experience. I give my best to create an atmosphere that helps you to engage in conversations with me and with others. Occasionally I use individually prepared worksheets as a support for our conversations.
I generally focus on the individual needs of my students. Be it preparing for a job interview, getting ready to live in a German speaking country, or learning German just for fun, I adjust my lessons to whatever you need so that you are able to speak, to read and to write in German. I am also happy to figure it out together in case you need help with the right approach.
So, in case I made you a little curious … Why do you not book a trial lesson with me and give it a try?See Reviews From Students
Learning German must be fun and if you can stay focused, motivated, you will make progress and succeed. That is my job, to help your reaching your goals. First, we will get to know each other so that I know what kind of learner you are, what you like, what your goals are and then I will design the perfect lesson plan for you. You need to learn German for school, study, work or to pass exams? No problem, I can help you. My main goal is that you can use the language, in everyday life, the language must be alive and from the first lesson, I can assure you, you will start to communicate in German.
I have been teaching this wonderful language for 11 years and I am certified by the “Goethe Institut”. I love languages and music. I think that learning makes us grow and be better people. We learn something everyday and that keeps us alive.
I am looking forward knowing you, bis bald, tschüssSee Reviews From Students
I offer both general German language course and specific classes of grammar, conversation, writing, test preparation and interview preparation. My focus is on intermediate and advanced German learners, who need a higher level of accuracy and fluency in terms of exposition, argumentation and self-expression.
I have been teaching German online since 2016. Before that, I taught at one of the leading language schools in Berlin for over six years. I hold a Magister (German equivalent to the master's degree) in German history and literature from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (2001) and a certificate of teaching German as a foreign language from Goethe-Institut, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (2010). Before becoming a language teacher, I was a journalist for six years at a local newspaper in Potsdam.
Language lessons can be fun, but language-learning is certainly time-consuming and occasionally frustrating. I am therefore aiming at establishing collaborative relationships with you to keep both of us motivated and inspired all through the journey.
I look forward to working together with you!See Reviews From Students

We’re confident you’ll love learning via LanguaTalk. We're trusted by students all over the world because we're transparent. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display reviews on tutors’ profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. Why? Because unlike other platforms, we accept only the top 10% of tutor applications.
To see our full FAQs or get help from our friendly team, click the '?' in the corner of the screen. You can also watch students talking about their experiences learning via LanguaTalk below.
1-on-1 lessons are perhaps the best way to improve speaking skills, and because of this many students use LanguaTalk to learn to speak German fluently. That said, some people have other, more specific goals. Let your tutor know what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your personal needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
Most of the German tutors on our site are able to teach students of all levels. When you click on a tutor's profile you'll see if certain levels are not supported. For example, certain tutors cannot teach complete beginners.
Likewise, you can also see on the tutor's profile whether they're suitable for all ages. Lessons are sometimes taken via LanguaTalk to support school/college studies. Usually, the tutor will be able to customise the lessons to follow the material and topics covered in the student's exams. Note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
New to LanguaTalk? You'll have one credit for a free trial. Most tutors offer a trial for free. If they do not, they’ll offer a trial session at a discount compared to their usual hourly rate.
Trial sessions are 30 minutes. They allow you to assess whether the tutor is a good fit for you, and get a feel for learning online. The tutor will assess your level and aim to understand your needs and interests so that they can customise any lessons you decide to take. You'll be encouraged to speak in German as much as possible, but of course you can speak in English too! Book a trial today to see if taking German lessons on Zoom/Skype works well for you.
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can make fast progress. Communicating via video call, you’ll be able to talk to your tutor and share learning materials as if you were in the same room.
The tutors vary in terms of their teaching methods, resources, experience, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever tutor you pick, they'll aim to tailor the lessons to your individual needs.
The vast majority of students take 55-minute lessons. But some tutors also provide the option of 30-minute lessons. If they do, you’ll see this noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the ‘Buy Lessons’ button).
55-minute lessons are recommended for most students. In general, we only suggest considering 30-minute lessons if they’re for your child, or you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
The beauty of taking lessons online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. To see tutors who are likely to fit your weekly schedule, use the availability filter at the top. Then when you see a tutor you like, check their profile calendar to make sure their time slots work for you. Some tutors have limited availability as they already have lots of students.
We want students to have an exceptional learning experience on LanguaTalk, so we only accept the very best tutor applications. Though we consider qualifications and experience, we place equal value on communication skills, personality and reviews from previous students. Almost all of the tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and they can speak English too.
Each tutor is unique - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right tutor for you.
Our booking system is designed to be easy to use. You can see tutors' available slots in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to buy them one at a time, or purchase in bulk with a volume discount. You can pay securely by card on our website.
You can manually add bookings to your personal calendar, or if you use Google calendar, you can add bookings automatically with our syncing feature. You'll also be able to receive email reminders to help ensure you don't forget to turn up.
You can reschedule or cancel lessons in a couple of clicks. Please note that this can be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. We have this policy to be fair to tutors, who cannot replace lessons at the last minute and need some form of income protection.
German lessons via Zoom/Skype tend to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel. Online German tutors may cost between $14 to $50 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors on certain websites may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, German tutors typically charge between $14 and $40 per hour.
Of course, receiving German tutoring via Zoom or Skype is not the cheapest way to learn; you could learn via a free app instead. But if you're serious about learning, nothing beats 1-on-1 German lessons with a great teacher.
According to the Foreign Service Institute, if you already speak English, German is one of the easiest languages to learn. The exact amount of time it will take you to become fluent will depend on many factors, such as your current level, your knowledge of similar languages, your capacity to learn, how you study, and how intensively you study. Some students who take multiple German lessons on Zoom/Skype each week will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months. Others will take longer. Combining 1-on-1 lessons with an online German tutor with regular self-study is an effective way to learn German fast.
Most tutors offer both Skype and Zoom as options for the lessons. If they only offer one of these, this will be stated on their profile. Both tools are free, easy to use and perfect for language learning. They allow you to do everything you would do in a physical classroom: speak, listen, read, write, and share learning materials. Your tutor will typically write corrections directly in the chat area so that you can later revise everything you’ve learnt.
Most German tutors using Skype/Zoom also use other technologies and resources to enhance the learning experience, for example Google Docs (for real-time collaboration), videos, and PowerPoint slides. If you're unable to take the German lessons via Zoom or Skype, please contact our support team and we’ll get in touch with the tutor you're interested in to see if they're able to use an alternative video technology, such as Google Meet.
Students sometimes feel unsure about learning online because they think it won't be as effective as learning face-to-face. But usually when they try it, they find that the experience is almost the same and they often build a strong relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen German tutor on Zoom/Skype, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. They’ll usually also share learning resources with you (using Google Docs, YouTube etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on many factors, such as your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take 1-on-1 German lessons on Zoom/Skype, you can use a free app like Duolingo to build your vocab. And to improve your listening skills, you can try watching TV and listening to podcasts in German. But to learn how to actually speak a language, you need to talk to a native speaker on a regular basis and receive accurate feedback so that you improve. If you want to make fast progress, it's best to take private lessons that are tailored to your personal needs by an experienced teacher.Arabic tutors | Chinese tutors | Dutch tutors | English tutors | French tutors | Greek tutors | Italian tutors | Japanese tutors | Korean tutors | Portuguese tutors | Romanian tutors | Russian tutors | Spanish tutors | Swedish tutors | Thai tutors
