Teaching approach:


Instead of working from a book, I integrate articles and stories into conversation in order to promote a relaxed speaking environment. After getting comfortable, we will select certain target areas that need more practice (or that the student would like to work on)--for example writing emails, formal communication, socializing, pronunciation, vocabulary, or grammar. It is most important to me that speaking and learning a new language is fun, otherwise I don't believe it is possible to learn!

Course program:


60 minutes of conversation + 30 minutes of games, practice or "drilling" particular aspects of the language (for example vocab, grammar, writing, reading)

ABOUT THE TEACHER

I am Anna, a North American woman living in Berlin. I recently finished my Master's degree in modern languages at University of St Andrews. I offer casual, friendly conversation courses in English with an emphasis on reading and speaking. In my experience, learning a language requires fun, freedom, and the relevance of a language to your life--diagramming sentences and endless repetition have never worked for me. As such, we will get to know each other and read articles or short stories then discuss them together, and you will become more and more comfortable (and that way, confident) in your ability to navigate English in any environment.


Mein Name ist Anna, ich bin Amerikanerin und lebe seit einem Jahr in Berlin. Vor kurzem habe ich einen MA in Literaturwissenschaft an der Universität St. Andrews abgeschlossen. Ich biete Englisch-Konversationskurse in freundlicher und entspannter Atmosphäre an, da ich die Erfahrung gemacht habe, dass Freude, Freiheit und die Relevanz einer neuen Sprache fürs tägliche Leben die wichtigsten Bestandteile des Unterrichts sind. Endlose Wiederholungen haben für mich nie funktioniert. Daher werden wir Artikel und Kurzgeschichten lesen, miteinander diskutieren und einander kennenlernen. So wirst du Spaß haben und an Selbstbewusstsein gewinnen, dass du jede Lebenslage auf Englisch meistern kannst.
