If you are in Vienna or close, we will meet in person (usually in a coworking space which I use). I like to do that with every prospective student, so we get to know each other and see if it is a match. I think it is important to get along with my students. I also really enjoy meeting you. Besides getting to know each other, I will tell you about the program and answer any questions you might have.
2. Private lesson on Zoom for placement
You will do a short placement exam (you can do that at the end of our meeting or the beginning of our lesson) and we will speak and then start working with the materials I use right away in a private lesson. This way you will really start at the right place – not too high or too low. Just a test is sometimes not enough to really determine that. Once we start working with the materials we will see for real. Again any questions you might have will be answered.
3. Scheduling and group lesson
We will work out your schedule now. If you are taking private lessons with me, you are all set!
If you are taking group lessons you will now have your first live Zoom group lesson and get to know your future fellow students.
Either way, from now on you will make steady progress and improve your German lesson by lesson.
4. Regular classes
Now all that’s left is learning. Every week you will learn new words and sentences. You will speak, read, write and listen and improve all of those skills. If you want you will get homework so you can speed up your progress. If you don’t have extra time, it’s OK – we will arrange your program, so you can do everything in class (but you will not move as fast as if you make homework, which can be writing, reading or watching/listening).
