About me

***General Conditions below***

Dear future German student,

Do you also wonder why you should choose me? Have a look what people say who have taken online classes with me (s. comments), also have a look at my Facebook site:

Please only book lessons with me if you are interested in learning German in an effective and enjoyable way.

You would need to book at least 3-5 lessons/week to progress, learning a language takes time, my online students stay with me in general 2-3 years, 80-140 lessons.

Please book 2 classes in a row, at least 10 lessons for the invoice, single lessons can be booked 11am-2pm

Book a lesson with me and

- get confident in useful day-to-day conversations or even presentations and meetings at work - afterwards you realize how much you understand and can already say!

- you want to prepare a level exam A1, A2 - B1, B2 - C1, C2. Let me guide you through the process!

- you simply want to learn German in a relaxed way - I use modern, recent books and online material:

Klett "Aussichten" - Hueber "Schritte plus", Hueber "Fit fürs Zertifikat", Magazine "Deutsch Perfekt" (e-paper), Online Material from Schubert and Deutsche Welle

If you live in VIENNA - book online and you can choose if you want to have online classes or FACE-TO-FACE (at my office, WKO EPU, Operngasse 17)

I have enjoyed teaching online for 6 years now. I am born and raised in Stuttgart, located in the South of Germany. There I grew up with English around me from early childhood. After my studies of languages and history I went to Madrid, Stockholm and currently I live in Vienna, Austria. Here in Vienna I teach expats at German companies. My main asset is that through our conversations you get the confidence to face day-to-day situations at ease.

Teaching Approach

My university studies gave me the theoretical background to understand how languages work. The Berlitz direct teaching method showed me that you do not need to talk about grammar to study a language but train the structure of a language through a permanent dialogue.

My teaching approach is direct, communicative and learner-centered. I believe that positive learning experiences can make a big difference to someone's attitude to the language and I feel motivated when seeing progress in my students´ development.

Sabrina has helped me a lot today to clarify my doubts on lingual time dependencies in things that are planned and things to be realized - a difficult topic for non-natives. Sabrina has done an exceptional job in explaining the subtle differences!

Great Q&A session and examples of various social contexts and what is typically used in German in everyday and business contexts. I find this interactive way of learning German very motivating and Sabrina is very flexible and supportive.

Great lesson with very interesting insight into the various modes of speaking and writing (formal, small talk, narragive) which helps gauge various situations one encounters. Also, lots of exercises and hints on improving my style of writing.
