Englisch für Kinder
I have worked with a preschool group, teaching children English on different topics such as body, farm animals, and food, using artistic outlets, songs and games.
I developed a course once called "Surviving in the USA" while teaching at the Volkshochschule in Germany.
I have taught adults practical expressions to be able to talk to their children's teachers, as well as how to write a check in English, talk to a landlord and other useful everyday phrases.
I teach adults in group settings and teenagers and adults one-on-one in a conversational manner, so that basic, practical phrases can be learned as well as cultural issues addressed.
I teach beginner students who need to get up to speed because they are going to study in a German speaking country or speak with their in-laws, friends, partners, starting with basic skills and working their way up.
