Below you can watch videos, check availability and read reviews of online German tutors to find someone who suits your needs and availability. When you open a tutor profile, you'll also see which learning needs, ages and levels the tutor is comfortable with. If you're new to LanguaTalk, when you create an account, you'll be given a token for a free, 30-minute trial session. Use this to get to know your chosen German teacher online and to decide whether you wish to take lessons with them. Please note that not all teachers offer a trial session for free - some charge 30% of their standard price for a full lesson.
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. We believe that online German lessons delivered in this way are the most effective way to become fluent in German quickly.
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 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,
Do you want to travel to Germany or communicate in everyday life?
Do you need a language certificate or do you maybe want to apply for a job?
I can offer you help with:
I'm an experienced German teacher from Berlin who speaks German, English and Spanish fluently.
My first teaching experience was in Perú, where I started to teach German as a foreign language to children in a social project.
I have 6 years of experience teaching German to students of different ages and levels from all over the world.
Hope to see you soon!
Hi and welcome to my profile!
My name is Elisa, I'm from Germany and I'd love to help you with your German!
I studied special needs education (M. Ed.) and specialized in German studies and speech difficulties, that's why I'm aware of the challenges of learning the German language and how to reduce them. I gained experience as a language promoter, by giving private lessons and working at a German School.
I will offer you flexible and individual lessons by tailoring them according to your skills level and your needs and wishes. My lessons are interactive and will always focus on your goals and interests to keep you engaged and motivated! I myself like learning new languages (at the moment it's Arabic), this makes me understand how difficult it is learning a new language and not giving it up!
Feel free to book a trial lesson with me to tell me about your learning goals and expectations. We will plan together how the lessons should be designed to make you reaching your goals effectively.
Bis bald! See you soon!
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 living in France and work here as a teacher for German as a scond and foreign language.
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!
Hallo Leute - hi guys!
Taking your first steps in German?
Do you want to improve a specific language skill?
Or prepare for an exam?
I can offer you:
I'm from Kassel in Germany but live in São Paulo, Brazil.
Here I started to teach German as a foreign language in German multinationals, in social projects, and as a 1:1 online teacher.
I have worked with German learners of many different needs and levels and I am simply in love with what you teach me about my language.
I am here to challenge you and cheer for your progress!
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!
Ioannis Josef M
I have been teaching German for many years and have worked for different educational institutions. I am a native German speaker and I studied Music Education, Musicology and German with Focus on Language in Germany.
At the Goethe Institute I completed the course ‘Methodology and Didactics of Teaching German as a Foreign Language’. Apart from my work as an online German teacher, I also work as a teacher trainer at the Goethe-Institut.
I am specialized in teaching German as a foreign language, but I also offer targeted language support for pupils. Furthermore, I am happy to assist you when preparing for a language exam.
What are your learning objectives? What do you want to focus on in class? How will the lessons work?
Book a free trial lesson with me to clarify your questions.
I look forward to accompanying you on your personal learning journey!
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!
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!
Do you want to learn how to communicate in German acccurately and with confidence, but without a lot of boring grammar exercises?
Or do you just want to talk, but constantly feel stressed when having a free conversation?
Or do you already speak German well and wonder how you can improve further?
Then I’m here to guide you on your way to success!
“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” (Confucius)
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!
I am a patient and dedicated German tutor and 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. Recently, I helped one of my students to pass the Goethe B2 exam. I started teaching languages 5 years ago and obtained a teaching certificate. I´ve been teaching German online for about 3 years. My mother tongues are German and Spanish, but I also speak English (C1 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.
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!
I am a German native speaker from Austria who loves languages and am passionate about teaching others. I work as language teacher in a school, teach adults at the German Culture Center and prepare my students for all types of official language exams. I love my job and always seek to make it as much fun as possible.
I am adapting my way of teaching to the needs and the personality of my students. We can build up your vocabulary and speaking capacities, work on your written expression or on your general understanding. You want a conversation class to practice the language or build up your knowledge in Grammar? Or perhaps you have a language exam to pass. Or is it perhaps your child that wants to learn a language while playing? You want to improve your German while learning more about the German speaking countries? You need someone who is motivating you to keep up our learning journey?
I have experience in teaching people from very different cultural background, different ages and different levels. I would love to get to know you during our trial lesson, so that we can come up with a tailored plan for you.
Hello there! My name is Laura, I am from Germany and I grew up on the northern coast, on an island called Fehmarn.
For the past 10 years I have travelled the world and spent most of my time abroad. Now I live in Puerto Escondido, on the pacific coast of Mexico. As a traveller I know how important the language is to connect to a country and its people.
I have 3 years of experience in teaching German as a foreign language and love to help my students to get confident and willing to speak German with fun and ease.
I will provide you with a variety of learning materials and I will make sure that you are speaking during most of your class. We will be using different grammar and vocabulary exercises to get you familiarized with the material and then directly apply it in a conversation. This approach will help you to quickly integrate any new aspects of the language into your own speaking.
My classes are fun and light and we will cover many different topics.
If you are learning German for a specific reason I am more than happy to tailor the classes to your needs and wishes and make sure you get the most out of your time with me.
So if this sounds like I could be the right tutor for you please don’t hesitate and get in touch! In a free trial session we can speak about your needs and your goals and I will do my best to provide you with exactly what you need.
I’m looking forward to meeting you!
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 (A2 and up) so that you don't feel overwhelmed. Language learning should be fun!
Corrections and suggestions will be provided in the chatbox.
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.
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! :)
Hi! I am Larissa, I am originally from Frankfurt, Germany. Since 2019, I've been teaching German as a foreign language via video chat and in face-to-face sessions. My students come from all over the world, from various age groups and have different skill levels. Depending on your skill level and requirements, we might start at the very beginning, dig into some grammar, do listening, reading and/or conversational exercises. I can also help you with different exam preparations or getting you ready to travel/move to a German speaking country. I like to work with free online sources, but am also happy to work with any material that my students bring to class. It is important to me to create a friendly and judge free atmosphere for my students where they feel comfortable just speaking and asking questions.
I am very passionate about traveling, exploring other countries and learning languages. Teaching is a great way for me to meet people from all over the world and learning about their cultures as well. Currently I am located in Costa Rica and learning Spanish.
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

I have experience with all levels. Together we will jump right into some easy exercises to get to know each other and to figure out the most suitable learning strategies. No matter if you wish to study abroad, work for a German speaking company or just have some fun learning a new language: I will adapt my class to your needs, interests and learning pace.

Hi there! I'm Josephine and I'm a native German speaker. I'd love to be a part of your success!
I was born and raised in Northern Germany and I hold a B.A. in Economic Translation in German, English, and French. I'm currently a Master's student in DaF (German as a Foreign Language).
Languages are my passion, I'm fluent in 3 languages and I'm currently studying two more on my own.
As far as teaching experience, I have successfully been teaching French and English to students from German-speaking countries, as well as German as a Foreign Language to foreign learners for a couple of months now.
I offer the following options on LanguaTalk:
Since I prepare each lesson individually, I will also take your hobbies, interests, and career into consideration.
I will further provide you with free high-quality learning materials (according to your level) and a language learning plan.
I hope to see you soon in our first lesson!

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 students have other, more specific goals. Tell your tutor what your goals are and they'll tailor the lessons to your needs. Most tutors can help with any of the following:
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 last 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!
After your session, if you feel that the tutor isn’t quite right for you, you can simply book a trial with someone else.
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. Online German lessons are sometimes taken 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. Please note that as per our Terms & Conditions, students who are under 18 must get permission from a legal guardian before booking.
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, experiences, and personalities. So we suggest you look at several profiles to choose the best tutor for you. Whichever German 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.
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 tutors are native speakers of the language they teach, and we require that they can speak English too.
Each tutor is different - they have different backgrounds, strengths, teaching methods and personalities. So we suggest you browse several profiles to find the right German tutor for you.
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.
Our booking system is designed to be incredibly easy to use. You can see tutors' available hours in your local time zone. If you choose to book lessons with a tutor, you'll be able to purchase them one at a time, or buy 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. Note that this can only be done up to 24 hours before the lesson time. This rule is required to protect tutors, who lose income when lessons are cancelled at the last minute.
Sometimes students feel uncertain about learning German online because they think it’ll be totally different to 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 online, 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.
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 will be able to go from beginner to conversational fluency within a couple of months through intensive study. 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.
If you live in the US or Europe, face-to-face German lessons may cost anywhere between $20 and $60 (USD) per hour. Online tutoring tends to be cheaper than face-to-face because the tutor doesn't need to travel to you. An online German tutor could cost anywhere from $13 to $50 per hour, but be aware that very cheap tutors may lack experience. On LanguaTalk, German tutors typically charge between $14 and $40 per hour.
Of course, learning 1-on-1 with an experienced German tutor 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.
There is no 'best way' to learn a language - it depends on your needs, level and budget. If you can't afford to take lessons, you can use a free app such as Duolingo to build your vocabulary. And to improve your listening skills, you can watch TV and listen 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 1-on-1 lessons that are tailored to your needs by an experienced online German teacher.
