- Do you have a personal message for students?
My motivation and my passion are modern languages. When I learned Spanish, suddenly a whole continent could talk to me and I could understand a whole continent. Learning a language is exploring your limits and leaving them behind.
That is why I am simply creating a learning environment and motivation, where true learning can take place. Efficient and communicative teaching of meaningful language, essential grammar, and relevant context will lead to your progress and compentent use of German, English or Spanish.

Johannes has been working for me during the last 2.5 years, teaching my 2 daughters German. He is professional, extremely reliable, always punctual and organised. He provides interesting materials, shows flexibility and open mindedness. That makes his lessons interesting. His approach is friendly but serious, never too strict.
Johannes has been my tutor for the last 3 years. Johannes is an excellent teacher. He is very personable and his teaching techniques are exemplary as he makes the lessons disussion based, introducing new vocabulary and grammar, whilst encouraging a lively and stimulating debate. I highly recommend Johannes and his methods, for anyone wishing to master German
