Would you like to raise your German language skills to a higher level? Are you a complete novice and would you like to learn to speak, read and write in German? Are you keen to expand your German vocabulary, master German grammar and learn more idiomatic and colloquial language? With Native Teachers you will receive German lessons from a teacher who was born and raised in a German-speaking region. Therefore, you can be sure that you are learning real German, with the correct German accent.
With private German training from a Native Teacher, your teacher is able to tailor your course entirely to your wishes and needs. Our German teachers have many years’ experience teaching within and outside professional language institutes in the Netherlands, and therefore know exactly what training material is available. That being said, at Native Teachers there is no such thing as a 'standard’ lesson. Before the language training commences, your German teacher will hold a detailed discussion with you to establish your current level of German, and to pinpoint your goals and your motives for learning German.
If, for example, you wish to learn German in connection with your professional activities, your German teacher will devise a training program specifically tailored to this. The lessons will cover the topics most relevant to you, with useful vocabulary and handy tips on the right approach to your business contacts in Germany, Austria or Switzerland (or the German-speaking area of Belgium). What’s more, many of our teachers have a background in business, which they can also apply within the context of the training.
Perhaps you wish to learn German primarily for social situations. Conversations about family, topical issues, the weather, holiday destinations, sport.... These objectives, too, can of course be accommodated. Our teachers enjoy using modern media to bring you into contact with today's spoken and written German, covering the most topical issues. Consider, for example, newspapers, magazines, German T.V. news (Tageschau) and online media.
