I am happy you decided to learn German.
With me as your tutor, you will get the support and motivation you need to reach your goals and make the progress you are looking for. My classes are not only educational but fun. I firmly believe that language learning should be motivating to ensure students’ success.
Since earning my Master’s in German as a Foreign Language, I have been teaching my native language at universities and language schools in Germany and abroad for fifteen years.
My teaching approach is communicative, intercultural and learner-centered. Over the years I have developed my own material which I supplement with current course books, online material and authentic sources like German songs, TV programs/films and literature.
No matter if you are a beginner or an advanced learner, no matter what area you’d like to focus on, be it general German, business German or exam preparation, I am going to tailor the lessons to your individual needs in order to ensure the best possible outcome.
As a polyglot myself, I am familiar with the challenges of learning a new language and I can give you helpful tips along the way.
All you need to bring is the necessary motivation and dedication, and we’re ready to go.
Lass uns Deutsch lernen! (Let’s learn German!)
I hope to see you soon in a trial session.
My name is Chris, I am from Austria and I would love to be your German teacher.
I have a wide variety of experience. I started teaching German during my studies. We exchanged languages, so I was able to learn some French, Italian, Polish and Russian. During a two-year long journey around the world, I was giving German lessons voluntarily in Russia, Korea, Vietnam and some more countries. For me it is great to help people achieving their goals. To do that, my first emphasis is to create a pleasant learning atmosphere. Building up on that, I use many techniques and exercises in order to aid your learning.
We can simply start from scratch, refresh your German, or have some advanced level classes. I will tailor the lessons according to your needs and your German will improve fast. During our trial lesson we can talk about your expectations and needs, and I will tell you how I plan to support and teach you.
Los geht’s! Lets start!
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 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!

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!
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.
Hi, my name is Lisa.
I am originally from Austria and German is my mother tongue. I used to study German as a foreign language in Vienna and worked with refugees and travellers in Austria for several years. I have experience with total beginners who don't know the alphabet, as well as advanced students.
For me communication is the most important part of learning a new language but I know that it is very individual how a person studies. I will do my best to create my classes based on your own needs and your own interests.
I know at the beginning it can be very difficult but with time it will be more and more fun. I would love to pass on my passion about language in general and my own culture in particular. I will create a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere in my classes that will take the fear of making mistakes, as I see mistakes as a very important part in order to become better and more secure in a new language. I will use different techniques in my classes, for example role games, texts, music and movement.
In my trial lessons we can talk about your expectations and create together an idea how to proceed in class so that it will be the most convenient for you.
I hope to see you soon in class. Bis bald,
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.
If you have any questions, we can discuss them during your free trial lesson.
Have a great day.
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?
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!
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!
Please note: From the 23rd of June until the end of September I will be working from the European time zone. After that I will be back in the Central American time zone. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
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.
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!
Hi, my name is Julie and I am looking forward to being your future German teacher. I have been working in German schools in different countries teaching children. So besides learning grammar and vocabulary we are going to have a lot of fun playing games and having conversations. If you think I am the right person to learn German with, don`t hesitate to book a free trial and we can figure out an individual plan for you to reach your goals. Hope to see you soon!
My students come from all over the world: Asia, Europe, North and South America or Africa.
My youngest student has 10 years and my oldest student has 65 years.
My student have all levels of German from 0 to 10.
At the moment I have done more than 2.000 hours of online teaching.
It depends on you what you want to achieve. I will give you a personalized solution: you want to talk, you want to do grammer, you want to build up your vocabulary...
My class is highly interactive. You will get homework. My method is learning by doing, but do not forget to enjoy the learning experience.
Google Meet is my preferred communication tool.
Please feel free to make a test class and get know in detail the dynamic of my class.
See you soon. Einen Gruss, Jens
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.
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!
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!

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.
