About me - English

I have been teaching languages for over 10 years. I started with one-to-ones, got into classroom teaching at evening colleges for adults as well as further education places such as the German Chamber of Commerce (IHK) and language classes for migrants and refugees (Integrationskurse) with zero knowledge of German. I also teach English as a foreign language, I started teaching at a language school in Devon, England first and when I moved to Germany in 2012, at various adult education places in Augsburg.

I am happy to teach adult learners who are absolute beginners through to learners wanting to tweak their already sound German (A1 - C1).

I love using a variety of materials during a lesson to keep it interesting and lively.

Qualifications & Experience

In 2016 I obtained my certificate for teaching German in "Integrationsclasses", classes for migrants and refugees coming to Germany.

However, I started my language teaching career a lot earlier: As a teacher for English as a second language. I received my ESOL certificate from Trinity College London in 2008 (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

Teaching in general goes back even further: I taught at the County Council in Devon, England and gained my teaching Knowledge on the City & Guild Certificate in Delivering Learning which I got in 2006 and in 2008 the Certificate in Education from Plymouth University, United Kingdom.

Teaching Approach

I use a learner-centred approach with emphasis on developing students’ communication skills. I assist learners to develop and broaden their existing language and cultural knowledge in a friendly, encouraging and fun way.

I use a variety of audio and visual materials to support the learning experience - authentic listening recordings, videos specific to the language topics, vocab building exercises and also provide homework for keen learners.

About me - German

Ich heiße Lindi Ching, bin 1975 geboren und unterrichte seit mehr als 10 Jahren. Ich unterrichte Deutsch als Fremdsprache oder Zweitsprache und Englisch als Fremdsprache. Ich arbeite gerne mit Anfängern, die gar keine Kenntnisse der Fremdsprache haben und unterrichte auch gern fortgeschrittene Lerner, die ihr Sprachwissen ausbauen möchten.

Deutsch ist meine Muttersprache und ich spreche auch fließend Englisch. Ich bin mit einem Engländer verheiratet und wir sprechen zu Hause beides: Deutsch und Englisch, manchmal auch Denglisch. Ich habe 12 Jahre in England gelebt und wohne seit 2012 wieder in Augsburg, meiner Heimatstadt.

Ich habe in den letzten Jahren in Integrationskursen unterrichtet, aber auch für die Volkshochschule oder private Sprachschulen, und auch für die Industrie- und Handelskammer. Ich unterrichte gerne Einzelschüler und Gruppen.

Qualifications & Experience

2016 - Zulassung von Lehrkräften in Integrationskursen vom Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge

2008 - Ausbildung zur Lehrkraft für Englisch als Fremdsprache, ESOL, Trinitiy College London, England

2008 - Certificate in Education von den Plymouth University, England

2006 - City & Guild Certificate in Delivering Learning, England

Teaching Approach

Ich bin flexibel und schaue zuerst gemeinsam mit dem Schüler, was er oder sie braucht oder lernen möchte. Neue Wörter entdecken, am besten im Zusammenhang, ist einer der wichtigsten Faktoren. Das passiert meist wie nebenbei, wenn man miteinander redet. Texte oder Artikel lesen, Audios hören, Briefe und Texte schreiben, diverse Situationen im Alltag entdecken ... und Grammatik gehört natürlich auch dazu.
