Nobody will ever get a real feeling for a language through a book. The famous 70:20:10 Learning model shows that most people most effectively learn (70%) through experience, 20% through others and 10% from a book. Tutoring perfectly covers the 70% and 20% in this model. My lessons focus on hearing and speaking the language which ensures long-term learning rather than 'bulimia'-learning.
Communicative language teaching (CLT) to enable the learners to communicate effectively and appropriately in the various situations they would be likely to find themself in. The content of CLT courses are functions such as inviting, suggesting, complaining or notions such as the expression of time, quantity, location.
I aim to provide engaging and detailed lessons to students at all linguistic levels.
I base my classes on interacting with authentic German-language sources such as stories, videos, articles and news broadcasts. I place a lot of focus on speaking, with the aim to improve students' confidence and oral ability. I offer lessons to anyone up to A-Level standard who is looking to improve their written and spoken German as well as aural and reading comprehension skills.
Having fun and enjoying your practice is key. If you feel confident enough I will be talking just German to you. I believe it is important to get a feeling for a language through listening and speaking, plus it is a lot more fun than the boring Grammar-exercises. Don't get me wrong.
Hi! I'm Lucy, a Philosophy and German student at the university of Bristol. I can teach pupils ranging from primary students to A-level. My methods adapt to the age group but primarily revolve around conversation lessons. They include progressive grammar lessons, essay writing, dictation, vocab learning and use of resources such as literature or newspapers to gain an understanding of culture.
I give lessons to everyone who wants to learn German. I teach beginners and people who already know German, but want to get better or simply want to practise it. I can also prepare you for taking DSDI and DSDII certificates.
I am a bright and lively languages student who would love to help you improve your German; a language which I feel has lost interest over the past few years but one which deserves some revival! I endorse learning through immersion techniques and would encourage you to discover the language through film, art, literature, music and cookery.
I have recently graduated from Oxford University, where I studied German. I am able to teach/tutor German up to and including A2 level. I strongly believe in using the target language as much as possible, and increasing exposure through video clips, pop songs and reading.
