Sabrina

German teacher based in Spain

Hello everyone, my name is Brina, I am originally from Germany and I’ve been traveling and living all around the world since 2012 (mainly as a digital nomad). I have been teaching both German and English for quite a few years meanwhile. I started working as an online German teacher with Lingoda back in 2015, and it’s been a great experience teaching my native language to people from all over the globe online, so I have become a passionate and dedicated teacher over the years. 🙂 Besides teaching online, I’ve also taught German in two primary schools in Spain for one term in 2017, and English to children (from 3 to 18 years of age) in a language center and a preschool in Vietnam in 2019. I can’t wait to meet you in my next German class!

Martina

German teacher based in Austria

My name is Martina and I am from Austria. I just moved back to my home town, after living 12 years in Colombia and 6 years in Florida, USA. I have been teaching German, as well as drawing and painting since about 20 years now. I started out teaching by accident in Colombia and realized pretty soon that teaching is something I really love to do. My other passions are art, drawing, painting, music and for sport tennis. I am very creative and always try to make classes fun and easy to understand, especially with the German grammar, which sometimes might not look fun at first.

Frequently asked questions

It depends. According to research, it takes 480 hours of immersive German course study to reach fluency. How many weeks it takes you depends on your time commitment. With Lingoda’s intensive German course online, you can expect to progress 1 level every 1.5-3 months, depending on your plan.

Yes and no. German grammar is considered straight-forward and logical with relatively few exceptions. The challenge for German language learners is picking up 4 noun case endings, 3 grammatical genders, and proper pronunciation. Daily German lessons online help learners to master it quickly.

Again, yes and no. German and English are related languages and share many commonalities, making it easier for English-speakers. There are plenty of cognates, words that sound the same and share origin. German grammar, such as noun cases, is the most challenging for English speakers.

No. While challenging, German is not considered the most difficult language to learn. That honour often goes to Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic and others. Sharing an alphabet helps language learners taking an immersive German course to grasp reading and writing quickly.

Students of German language often mention grammar and pronunciation as the most challenging elements to learn. Grammar such as the 4 grammatical cases, 3 genders, and long compound nouns can be hard to learn at first. A solid intensive German course will address these issues directly.

People who learn German are often motivated by study, work or migration. Universities in German-speaking countries have strict language requirements, as do governments for those who want to immigrate. A full-time German language course aims to prepare you for an international move.

In German-speaking countries, it’s critical. You need German fluency for residency. Outside of German-speaking countries, it can definitely help. Large, multinational German companies employ people all over the world. An intensive German course makes sense for an international job search.

German language is an excellent job skill. Large, multinational German companies have manufacturing operations in the US, South America and Southeast Asia. There is also a need for German-speaking hospitality and tourism all over the world. An immersive German language course will make you a quality candidate for those jobs.
