Hello, my name is Gabriela Samland and I'm 51 years old and currently living in Mexico. I am a native German speaker and teach German. I have taught online with Verbalplanet.com since January 2016. I can speak the following languages fluently: German, English, Spanish. I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

I'm a native German speaker, born and raised in a town in northern Germany. After travelling a lot I decided to settle down in the beautiful town of Oaxaca de Juarez. Although already living here for several years I'm still enthusiastic about the vibrant art scene, the delicious food and the warm-hearted people here in the south of México.

What I love about teaching German online is not only the chance to help people to reach their goals but also to meet diverse people from all over the world. In case my students are interested in learning more about German and/or Mexican culture and way of living I gladly include this in our classes.

Qualifications & Experience

I'm a language teacher with more than 10 years of experience. In Germany I have been teaching German for several years (private lessons for high school students and for Italian students living in Germany).

I’ve been teaching German online for 5 years and „face to face“ in a school here in Oaxaca de Juarez for 2 years.

I'm also a trained naturopath. Apart from teaching German I arranged and conducted courses on subjects as First Aid Training and health topics.

I am currently offering a free initial trial lesson for new students.

Please be aware that really just the slots marked as "free" on my planner are available!

Teaching Approach

Having studied foreign languages myself - and still learning - I have a true understanding for how hard it is to learn a new language from the beginning. I've found that this helps me relate to my students.

I am a big believer in creating a fun, authentic learning experience, through which students learn the language within the context of real-world situations to which they can relate. Each student has his own goals and interests and by using a lot of different materials in my lessons I can fully cater to each level, demand and expectation.

I offer classes beginning from level A1 / beginners to C2 / proficient speaker. This includes conversational classes geared more toward people who already have reached a certain level and need to focus more on their conversational German and listening comprehension.

Always enjoy our classes and I especially like how Gabriela speaks to me in German as much as possible.

Good, responsible teacher. Has a clear method of teaching, and is very good with guidance. She uses immersion techniques as much as possible. She speaks slowly and clearly, grading her language for the student.
