Hei,

Hei,

você se interessa pela língua e cultura finlandesa? Eu ofereço aulas que são planejados individualmente para atender as suas necessidades e capacidades. Porém, o foco sempre está na comunicação. Todas as quatro competências lingüísticas são praticadas de mesmo modo.

Der Schwerpunkt des Unterrichts liegt auf Kommunikation. Ich erhebe immer den Anspruch, den Unterricht und Übungen linguistisch zu begründen. Damit der Unterricht den Bedürfnissen und Zielsetzungen der Student*innen jedes Mal gerecht wird passe ich die Kursplanung der jeweiligen Gruppe oder Person an und erstelle eigene, aktuelle Unterrichtsmaterialien. Den Unterricht gestalte ich außerdem spielerisch, damit der Spaß beim Lernen nicht abhanden kommt.

Je nach Niveau und Zielsetzung werde ich ein Lehrprogramm erstellen.
