Understanding and mastering are two completely different things. Therefore, it is not my goal to explain a lot, but to make you USE grammar structures and new words in a systematic way.
What to expect
I'm looking forward to meeting you!
Hello! My name is Hilda.
I was born in Germany and I have traveled all over the world. Now I invite you to travel with me into the German language.
As a foreign language correspondent, I also have the language mentor certificate, and studied to teach German (DaF teacher) at the Goethe Institute in Munich.
I have been teaching German to people of all ages and all levels for more than 13 years.
You may start as a beginner. You may want to deepen your vocabulary or grammar, or you may want pure conversation.
Maybe you have an exam coming up, or you need German for your job or for a meeting. Perhaps you want to immigrate.
Your goals and your individuality are my challenge.
We use a wide variety of materials, such as picture cards, books (e.g. "Menschen" Hueber Verlag), audios, videos, role plays, worksheets and more.
I always integrate listening, speaking, writing and reading into the lessons. In addition to my mother tongue German, I speak English (C1) and Spanish (B2).
I look forward to a first trial lesson with you.
See you soon,
My name is Maja, and I would love to teach you German. I'm from Germany, but I currently live in Spain. As I just started learning Spanish two years ago, my memory of what it is like to learn a new language is still very fresh =) The lessons can be held in English and/or German. If you have a specific book that you are already using to learn German, please let me know. Join me for a free trial lesson!
Have a great day!
Mein Name ist Maja, und ich würde Dir gerne Deutsch beibringen. Ich komme aus Deutschland, aber ich wohne zur Zeit in Spanien. Der Unterricht kann auf Englisch und/oder Deutsch gehalten werden. Falls Du ein spezielles Buch hast, mit dem Du bereits Deutsch lernst, lass es mich bitte wissen. Da ich erst vor zwei Jahren angefangen habe, Spanisch zu lernen, ist meine Erinnerung daran, wie es ist, eine neue Sprache zu lernen, noch sehr frisch =) Melde Dich für eine kostenlose Probestunde!
Ich wünsche Dir einen schönen Tag!
Schön dich kennenzulernen! My name is Robin and I’m a certified and experienced German (DaF/DaZ) teacher from Stuttgart Germany.

I have lived in Germany, the US and Mexico before, so I can give you helpful translations into German, English and Spanish when you need them.

I have worked in Management Consulting and Finance before, so I can prepare you for job interviews, applications and business travel too. My schedule is optimized to give you the ability to take lessons before and after work, as well as on the weekend. Feel free to request additional time slots. The private lessons are highly effective and can be fully adapted to suit your specific interests and needs.
Here are some general lesson categories:
- Conversational Lessons / Informal Tutoring

- Exam Preparation: Goethe Test / Telc / Test DaF / ...
- Business German

I am an experienced German tutor teaching students (individuals and groups) at all levels and all ages.
I am a native German speaker and have lived in the UK for over 25 years.
Learning a language should be fun and the German you learn should suit the environment you want to use it in. Whether you want to learn German to pass important exams at school, have business contacts abroad, your spouse is German, you are going away on holiday in Germany, or you just want to keep up your language skills - please get in touch and we can work out a lesson plan and pace which suits you.
I have worked as a German tutor since 2003 and have also been a learning support assistant at a local school. I have experience working with students with learning difficulties and disabilities.
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, tschüss
I do not only teach languages to earn money, it is my passion to teach, to have conversations with people from various countries, to allow someone to learn a new language, to open doors in this global world.
I am a German native, single mom of 2, with more than 10 years of teaching experience and about 20 years of tutoring experience. I have been teaching online for more than 6 years, but also taught in colleges, language schools and many private settings.
I have lived in the US for 7 years and came back to Germany in 2017. In 2020 I decided to become a full-time online teacher. I teach grammar, vocabulary, prepare you for tests and also for interviews, small talk or travels. I enjoy conversations as much as exam prep.
I would love to teach you soon! Please watch my video and book a trial session with me!
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 beginners, I promise to take the first step with you with patience, clarity, encouragement, and fun. 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!
My name is Marie and I'd like to help you to improve your German.
I'm born and raised in Germany so I'm a native German speaker. Currently I'm doing my master's in German as a second and foreign language and I already have a bachelor's degree in German.
For more than six years I have been teaching German now in Germany and in France and with a lot of passion and joy for all levels and ages. It's a big pleasure for me to get to know so many cultures and people by teaching. Because of my stay in France, I speak French and of course also English.
In my classes I set the focus on you as an individual learner. So I prepare every lesson individually based on your personal needs. We will do various types of grammar exercises, reading comprehensions and of course we'll also talk a lot. I'm also having a lot of experience in successfully preparing students for German certificates (Goethe, telc) in all levels. You will benefit from my years of experience as I have a lot of learning material for all kinds of needs and occasions.
German might be a bit challenging sometimes but believe me there is a logical reason for everything. Let me show and explain you the German grammar and I'm sure you will see how logical and beautiful German can be.
So let's explore the beauty of German together and I'd love to meet you for a trial session!
Ich freue mich auf dich!
I will help you learn German with personalized lessons according to your needs and interests. In my German lessons you will not only learn the correct pronunciation and grammar but also a lot of useful facts and details about the German culture and way of living. This will help you if you are already living in a German-speaking country or plan to move there. I can also help you with exam preparation, such as Goethe-Test, Telc, or TestDaF.
We will use role plays, audios, videos, and a lot of different materials in order to improve your speaking, reading, writing and listening skills. Every student has a different learning pace and different needs and interests. In the trial lesson I will find out what your goals are and with that information I will be able to adapt my German lessons so that you will learn German and enjoy it!
I was born in Spain and raised in Germany, so Spanish and German are my native languages, but I also speak English (C1 level), French (B2 level), and a little bit of Portuguese.
Over the last 30 years I have taught languages (English, German, and Spanish) to children and adults of all ages and levels. I've helped several students to pass different language exams.
I love languages and that reflects in my teaching! Don't hesitate and book a trial lesson with me.
See you soon,
I´m Stella, from Metzingen in Germany. I started teaching languages 5 years ago and obtained a teaching certificate. I´ve been teaching German online for about 3 years. I speak English (C1 level), Spanish (C2 level) and a little bit of French.
Every student is unique, that´s why I prepare each lesson carefully, taking into account the needs, interests and learning goal of my students. The structure of the lesson also depends on the way of learning that works best for you. That´s what we are going to discuss in the trial lesson. You will also get an idea about how our lessons will be. And as I get to know more about your interests and hobbies, I can prepare lessons with topics that are interesting and practical for you.
I have worked with adults and children of all ages and German levels, so I have teaching material for every level and for exam preparation. I recently helped one of my students to pass the Goethe B2 exam.
We will practice reading, listening, writing and speaking. Therefore, we will use videos, worksheets, online exercises, dialogues or role-plays. We will practice everyday German and the vocabulary that you personally need. I will also guide you patiently through the grammar topics. If you want, I will give you homework after the lesson.
Ich hoffe, du buchst eine Probestunde mit mir!
Lessons will be tailored according to your individual needs. We'll talk and train your conversational skills using up-to-date topics. I prepare you for the most important German exams such as German as a Foreign Language Certificate (DaF Test), Goethe Zertifikat and TELC.
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!
My methods are always developed in accordance with the interests and needs of each particular student. Each of us has a different connection with the language - preferences of how to study, goals, etc. My lessons are varied and engaging. I find it a joy to teach my mother tongue, and I hope we'll have a lot of fun together. Feel free to book a trial lesson! Below are my specialities:
Conversation: One of my favorite parts of being a German tutor and teacher! Whether you want to round off your studying in a beginner mode with some active conversation or you're already quite advanced and want to deepen your knowledge, I can help. I use relevant & interesting topics, including videos and texts, individually designed for your objectives.
Sprachprüfungen Goethe-Institut (A1-C2): Not only did I prepare and guide several students successfully on their way to the DSH-exam, I also did a C2-exam in Spanish myself; so I really can empathize with your situation! Feel free to book a trial and we'll discuss your goals together!
Deutsch für Profis: Your German is pretty good? You have no problems communicating in everyday life? And yet you feel there's still room for improvement? Then you've come to the right place. Complex topics, a sustainable expansion of vocabulary and stylistically confident sentence constructions. Let's get started!
My name is Christine. I’m half German, half Belgian, and I have lived in Mexico for 19 years. I have been a teacher for 16 years and I have taught different subjects and languages, such as English, German, Spanish, world history, and geography. My teaching approach depends on the student's level and interests. That being said, I believe that conversation is an important part of learning a language, and so I often focus on conversation or question-answer sessions in my classes. I love teaching and I always aim to make classes interesting.
I currently use the Netzwerk textbook and workbook by Klett (for A1 level), but I am open to working with other books as well. At the moment I am awaiting new books for other levels.
My Spanish level is excellent. I speak Latin American Spanish, but I know the grammar for Spanish from both Spain and Latin America.
Hope to meet you soon!
Hallo to everyone who is interested in the German language.
My name is Marlene, I am from Germany, 30 years old and I have a passion for languages and communication. I believe that everyone can learn a foreign language and that it can be done in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
If you are a total beginner, no worries at all, I will help you through the jungle of the German ü, ä, ö and ß. If you are already more advanced, I will help you to improve and perfection your skills (with me you will become the new Goethe!). My classes are not money driven, but outcome and fun related. I will adapt to your level and needs and will make you feel comfortable. My approach to teaching is to use a variety of material, including reading texts, listening to audios, watching videos and using grammar and exercise sheets. I will try to make you speak as much as possible and you don´t have to feel shy or embarrassed about your pronunciation or grammar mistakes. The more you speak, the better you learn.
My advice is always to repeat. Repetition is the key for things to stick and become natural after a while. The beautiful thing about learning a language is the progress. I promise that you will see a progress in a short amount of time which is really rewarding. I am a positive, patient and encouraging teacher, there will be no pressure, stress or strictness in my classes.
I am looking forward to meeting you in our first class. Liebe Grüße! Marlene
In my lessons I focus a lot on speaking skills, whether it is ad hoc conversation or set topics. Speaking is one of the hardest things to master in a foreign language, but also one of the most useful. Having said that, I always try to adapt to the needs of my students. I want to help you with the things that are important to you. Whether you prefer reading texts or books, listening to songs or watching videos, practicing for an exam or interview,... I am here to help you with your goals.
As a teacher I am very patient and want to make sure that my students really understand, before moving on. Everybody learns at their own pace and with their own style. Further I want you to feel at ease in my lessons. Only if you enjoy learning you will continue and succeed.
On grammar: as little as possible, as much as necessary :) I will introduce new grammar only if I feel you have trouble expressing yourself (oral or written) or have trouble understanding texts. However, if you are completely new to German, there is unfortunately no way around it. In any case, I can provide clear explanations to make German grammar easier to understand.
See you soon!

Hello! My name is Simon, I am 23 years old and I come from Germany. I was born and raised in Essen in the Ruhr Valley.
For the past years I have lived in East Timor, volunteering and teaching English and German, and studied my BA in Global Goveranance, Political Science and World Politics in Rome and Saint Petersburg. I love to travel, which is where I discovered my love for languages. Whereever I go, I try to learn a little bit of the local languages. Moreover, whereever I went I met people who were excited about learning German. This made me wanna support this interest and help people to learn German. I hope to help you, too.
Everybody has a different story for learning German. You may need to pass a German exam to enter university or work in Germany, you may have German friends or family and want to learn more, or you may just enjoy learning German. For each of you, there is an individual plan waiting that meets these situations, expectations, and goals. Whether you are learning for fun, for an exam, or for travelling, we will practice the types of conversations, vocabulary, and grammar that you will need most.
Most of all, we will have fun and learn together!
I am looking forward to our first lesson! Until then, best wishes, Simon
Welcome to my profile. My name is Maike, I'm 26 years old. Currently I live in the northern part of Germany in a city called Oldenburg. I grew up in a little village in Baden-Württemberg (south of Germany), did my Bachelor degree in Passau (Bayern), lived in France for a while (Paris and Strasbourg) and in Spain (Valencia) as well. Languages are my passion, as well as travelling, good food and lovely conversations.
I love to get to know new people from around the world and share the knowledge about my mother tongue, my culture (such as food, drinks and festivities) and everything surrounding it as well. You'd like to work on your conversation skills? No problem! As I am a very talkative person, we'll never have the problem of not finding something that we both want to talk about. Such things as grammar are necessary too sometimes - ugh, not cool, I know, right?! - but we'll make it fun and use exercises including things of your everyday life to get the most of it.
Interested in learning German with me? Just book a 30 min trial session, select my calendar and we'll soon meet for the first time. Soon we'll start your journey of progress with this great language!
Ich freue mich darauf, dich kennenzulernen! / Looking forward to meeting you!

Powerful technology - Our site is easy to use. You can choose a tutor based on their video, reviews and availability (which automatically shows according to your time zone). Then book and pay in a couple of clicks.

A human company - We're a small startup here to enable learning and personal development, whilst also providing better working conditions for tutors. We'll provide prompt, personalised support if you encounter any issues.
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. Many, but not all, tutors offer trials for free. If they don't offer this, the price will be just 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at minimal cost. You can also take a trial session with another tutor if you have any issues with your first trial.
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.
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the tutor is quite right for you, you can book a trial with another tutor for just 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Lessons are taught 1-on-1 so that you receive your tutor’s full attention and can progress quickly. Each lesson is 55 minutes long and is taught via Skype or Zoom, allowing you to communicate with 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 beauty of taking classes online is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a tutor, just check their calendar to make sure that they have available times that fit your schedule. Some German tutors have limited availability due to teaching a lot 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 anywhere from $7 to $30 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors on certain websites may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, German tutors typically charge between $10 and $25 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.
