Great! I’m Alice. I studied languages and have a teacher’s certificate in German as a foreign language from the Goethe Institute. I love learning foreign languages and would like to share this joy with you. I want you to progress quickly and above all to overcome your speech barriers. I myself have lived abroad for over 12 years. I have experienced what it means to settle in a foreign country and to overcome language barriers. I teach German as a foreign language because it gives me great pleasure to accompany and motivate you in your learning progress.

From an initial idea, I found a vocation in “German as a foreign language”.

What are the benefits of online lessons via Skype?

About me

My mother tongue is German. After graduating from high school, I moved to Porto Alegre in Brazil for a year, where I did voluntary social work. There I gave English lessons to children among other things. I then completed a vocational training course in tourism with a focus on foreign languages. This was followed by numerous work experiences in tourism companies in Germany, Portugal, France and German-speaking and Italian-speaking Switzerland. I studied Romance languages and literature at the Albert-Ludwigs-University in Freiburg im Breisgau.

My qualifications

  • Meanwhile I have over 1.000 hours of experience as a German online instructor. There’s an hour record here.
  • Degree ( Bachelor of Arts)
    I completed my Bachelor of Arts in French Media and Portuguese at the Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg im Breisgau.
  • Certificate: Distance Learning Course: Methodology and Didactics German as a Foreign Language, Goethe Institute
    In this course I have independently acquired knowledge and methods, enabling me to diversify my lessons.
  • My foreign language skills
    My love for the Portuguese language began while I was still at school. The Portuguese language finally facilitated my access to other Romance languages. It was easy for me to understand Spanish and Italian and to use the French language during my stays in France.
    My own foreign language skills now help me to understand and correct mistakes made by my German learners. In addition, they simplify communication with my German learners. I speak English, Portuguese and French. I also have basic knowledge of Spanish and Italian.
  • Volunteer Global Voices
    I am an honorary translator at GlobalVoices:
    Global Voices is a community of over 800 volunteer authors, online media experts and translators from over 167 countries.
  • Vocational training for tourism
    I completed my professional training in tourism with a focus on languages and worked in the tourism industry for many years. This experience also makes me accustomed to working in an international environment. If you also want to communicate with German-speaking guests in German, my knowledge will also help you.

How it works

Before we begin with the lessons, we arrange a non-binding meeting of about 30 to 40 minutes. We discuss your level of knowledge and the further procedure. If necessary, I will create a personal learning plan for you.

The lessons take place via Skype. If you wish, the lessons can also take place via Google – Hangout or Facebook.

  • General language lessons from beginners A1 to advanced C2
  • German for your profession
  • Preparation for job interviews
  • German for the tourism industry
  • I have textbook series from the publishers Hüber, Schubert and Klett.
  • I like to work with online exercises or interactions to practice grammar structures.
  • Podcasts, audio, videos or German music improve your listening skills.
  • Dictations and other writing exercises improve your writing skills … and much more…
  • It is possible to check the homework in writing by e-mail. This saves you time and money. In addition, there is a greater learning success.
  • During our German lessons you will receive numerous materials so that you can continue learning independently.

Why learn German?

  • More than 103 million people speak German as their mother tongue.
  • German is spoken in Europe not only in Germany, but also in countries such as Belgium, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Austria, South Tyrol, Alsace and Lorraine.
  • Anyone living in a German speaking country needs knowledge of the German language. It is essential for integration. English is not enough.
  • The German language is also a key to other Germanic languages such as Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian or even Afrikaans.

  • Language connects: Learning the German language gives you access to German culture and mentality. You get to know the German-speaking countries better. You can make contacts and make friends more easily.
  • There are many German companies abroad. Knowledge of German is an advantage in business.
  • The German-speaking visitors from Germany, Switzerland and Austria form a very large tourist group. With your knowledge of German you will improve your qualifications on the job market of the tourism industry.

Last, but not least: A new language is like a gateway to a new world.
