Hi, I am Lena, a multilingual German language instructor and interpreter in Southern California - to the south of Los Angeles, in Orange and San Diego Counties.
If you book a corporate or private German course through Language Trainers, you are likely to get me as a trainer in this area.
This page would be of interest to you if you are considering me as an instructor or for real-time speech translation in person.
Please do not pay without confirming with me personally.
I hope you will hire me to give you an introduction into German grammar and to teach you the ways to think and have a vivid conversations in this language. I love to help beginners to build a solid foundation for certain fluency. All you will need to do to start your progress is to find time for the lessons.
I specialize in introduction into the grammatical structure, methods for faster fluency, as well as philosophical beauty of German language, and in training my students to speak standard German (Hochdeutsch) in form of casual dialogues, preparing them to communicate their thoughts and needs in various social situations.
Although I adapt my teaching to the individual needs of each person, I maintain clarity by sufficient repetition, concentration on fundamentals, and introduce new elements of speech, integrating them with already known.
My method is based on scientific findings about human memory and my personal experience as a multilingual person who lived in various cultures. Often, I utilize tables, drawings, analogies, and in depth explanations from my future book on German grammar.
In our lessons we will use current established German media, songs, classic literature, children verses, fun dialogues, and will casually chat in German about life.
Currently, I offer individual and small-group lessons and courses in coastal Orange County, California, for private and corporate clients:
- Introductory German lesson - 1 academic hour;
- Intense German Course - 10 Hours, in two weekend-day meetings;
- Short German Course - 6 double-hour lessons;
- Full German Language Course - 48 academic hours in 24 sessions.
A double academic hour scheduling will save you some time and money and allows for deeper language immersion. The intense course with two consecutive days of 5-hour lessons a day is designed for people who like to excel extra fast.
Typical Course Concentrations:
- German Grammar and Dialogue for Beginners
- Business German Basics for Professionals
- German for Travelers
The best recurrence for the lessons, according to my experience, is 2-3 times a week:
- enough time for your brain to process and connect new data,
- and not enough time to forget most of it.
To make sure you receive my full attention, I try to have only 2-3 students at the same time period. We usually meet during the day, from around 11 am to 6 pm. In need I work 9 am to 9 pm. , and you can contact me any time of the day.
Please message me with your details for current availability.
If you need to reschedule a lesson, please do it 48 hours prior.
Currently, for the last couple of years, I live in Huntington Beach, Orange County, California (SoCal), near zip code 92646 area. I am able to offer German lessons in several additional towns of coastal Orange County:
- Huntington Beach, CA
- Newport Beach, CA
- Costa Mesa, CA
- Fountain Valley, CA
- Santa Ana, CA
- Irvine, CA
- Orange, CA
- Garden Grove, CA
- Westminster, CA
- Seal Beach, CA
- Cypress, CA
If you have no private office or other suitable space for studies, we can meet in private library rooms or other rented offices.
If you are outside of my area, I can conduct the scheduled lessons over the internet (Skype, Hangouts).
Study with a Real Person
German, English, Russian
Translating from German into English and from English into German, I specialized in poetic, but also legal and IT (apps, sites, documentation) translation, but I prefer to translate poetry and poetic prose. Bidirectional German-Russian translation I offer primarily for literary works.
Please message me if you need higher quality human translation from a person who lived in both English- and German-speaking countries - for over seven years both in United States and Germany - especially if your text needs to be discussed in person.
Thank you for considering me. Please, contact me for scheduling and questions:
+1 (323) 686 - 1771
Or use a simple contact form on this site. Please tell me about your wishes and availability.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
