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.
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
I have taught all levels at our national university language lab and privately. Also, I prepare for international examinations: *Goethe A1-A2-B1-B2-C1-C2, *TELC, *DSH, *Occupation Medicine B2-C1, *Workplace/occupation A2-B1, *Children A1-A2.
These are communicative, state-of-the-art and highly efficient classes that comprehensively integrate the four learning abilities of listening and reading comprehension, oral and written expression, but without compromising on the required grammar. That's because I have all the suitable tools at our disposal. In addition to the class and workbooks, we use an interactive PDF-whiteboard. We have numerous audio and video tracks, as well as other very efficient interactive tools. Levels range from beginner to advanced, from A1 to C2.
My approach is systematic but flexible, fully adapting to the learning pace of each student, so that they feel comfortable. And of course, I also try to make the class enjoyable and entertaining without leaving the academic objectives aside. In this sense, I know that most of you will need an international diploma at some point, and the methods I use are also aimed at this objective, as well as preparing you for colloquial communication in a new cultural environment. Every language is also a new culture, a new world.
I am looking forward to meeting you and showing you this new world in German. See you soon at the trial lesson. Bye!

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 20 years from A0 to C2.
Learning a language is speaking a language. So we're going to have a lot of conversation.
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.
I am very committed to making your personal wish come true.
- We use a wide variety of materials, such as picture cards, books (e.g. "Menschen" Hueber Verlag), audios, videos, role plays, and worksheets.
- You get your own presentation (My German Course) on Google Slides, your own access to Google Docs, as well an access to an interactive software.
- I always integrate listening, speaking, writing and reading into the lessons. In addition to my mother tongue German, I speak English (C1) and Spanish (B1).
I look forward to a first trial lesson with you.
See you soon,See Reviews From Students

Your German lessons will be tailored to your specific needs by an experienced, native German teacher.
I studied German language and literature, music education and musicology in Germany. Over the years, I have worked for a variety of educational institutions as a teacher. Also, I have completed a multi-level continuing education program at the Goethe-Institut and work there as a teacher trainer.
Having specialized in online teaching of German as a foreign language for the last few years, I teach students worldwide. I also have extensive experience in exam preparation and will be happy to help you if you want to take a German 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 important questions!
I look forward to accompanying you on your personal learning journey!See Reviews From Students
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
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
Hello, I am Jan from Germany and I would like to help you learn German and improve your German. I offer lessons for all levels and prepare you for exams or job interviews, for example. I can support you in writing applications or other texts in German. Furthermore, I can also help you to speak German as an everyday language.
I have been tutoring foreign languages such as French and Spanish at a tutoring institute for over a year.
I work with the immersive learning method. This means that I speak with you mostly in German during class and only in exceptional cases in another language. In this way, new words and phrases can be learned subconsciously while you get used to speaking in the foreign language. No worries, I explain the grammar as easily and understandably as possible.
As teaching materials, I use, for example, song lyrics and texts from media on topics that interest you.
I currently live in Austria, in Innsbruck. There I study translation of French, Spanish, and German. I am very interested in languages, traveling, politics and photography.
I'm really looking forward to meeting you in a trial session. Bis bald! See you!See Reviews From Students
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.
Hi, I'm Your new German teacher. Born and raised in Switzerland but now living in Peru. I'm an artist, graphic designer and much more. I speak fluent English, Spanish and good French. I love to teach online because it allows me both to get to know new people from all over the world but also to take good care of my family. I always try to improve my teaching methods and to help my students find the best materials for them to keep studying for themselves. Besides teaching grammar and vocabulary I also like to use videos, audio-recordings, and a virtual whiteboard. You'll not only learn the language but also some cultural aspects. And last but not least you'll enjoy spending your time having some fun! See You soon in my class ;)See Reviews From Students
If you prefer not to learn online with tutor, LanguaTalk may not be the right choice for you. Instead, you can search for tutor, we recommend giving online learning a try as it is often as good as in-person learning and allows you to access better tutors at a lower cost. You can also book a free trial session to see if it is right for you.
Sometimes students tell us that they're not sure about learning German online because they think it’ll be completely 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 solid relationship with their tutor.
Once you start a video call with your chosen tutor, you’ll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The tutor will typically also share learning resources with you (newspaper articles, YouTube, etc.) and you’ll be able to collaborate in real-time using a tool like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
There are several options for learning German in Zurich, whether you live in the city center or the suburbs. You can use an app or software program to learn basic vocabulary and grammar. You can also join group lessons with German tutors in Zurich if you prefer a social learning experience. Alternatively, you can take one-on-one lessons with a private tutor, which is more expensive but may be the most effective option if you have a good tutor. Learning online may make private tutors a more affordable choice. Prices vary based on the tutor, but are generally cheaper than in-person lessons in Zurich.
Our research indicates that the average cost for private German lessons in Zurich is between $25-$35 per hour. Online tutors do not need to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, so the hourly cost is generally lower.
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may offer local lessons, but most only provide online lessons as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. In addition, many tutors do not teach German in Zurich as they live elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that it will be online unless the tutor specifically states that they offer in-person lessons in Zurich.
The advantage of taking lessons online is that you can learn at any time and from any location. When you select a tutor, check their calendar to ensure that they have available slots that fit your schedule. Some tutors may have limited availability due to high demand from other students.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial lesson. Many, but not all, tutors offer these for free. If they do not, the price will be reduced to 30 percent of their full lesson price, so you can still try a session at a minimal cost.
Trial lessons are 30 minutes long. They allow you to evaluate whether the tutor is a good fit for you and experience learning online. The tutor will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so they can customize any lessons you decide to take. You will be encouraged to speak in German as much as possible, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial lesson, you don't feel that the tutor is right for you, you can schedule a trial lesson with another tutor for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Lessons are conducted one-on-one, allowing you to receive personalized attention from your tutor. lessons are conducted via video call, and you can use any device with a stable internet connection and a webcam to join the lesson.
Your tutor will create a customized lesson plan based on your goals, learning style, and current level. During the lesson, you will have the opportunity to speak, listen, and interact with your tutor in real-time. Your tutor may also provide you with additional materials, such as audio recordings or written exercises, to help you practice and consolidate your learning.
Most students take 55-minute lessons. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute lessons. If this is available, it will be noted on their profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, we recommend 55-minute lessons for most students. You may want to consider 30-minute lessons only if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice, or if the lesson is for a child.
