Beginner German lessons with Lena in Oceanside: an in-person course with dialogues, songs and visual grammar for faster fluency with a multilingual instructor in a relaxing setting.
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 reaching fast 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.
I use materials from the most respectable German publishers and the hangouts, audio records, and videos are included in the course I have developed over the years for American English natives.
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.
You will start talking right from the beginning and I will make sure you sound right and feel comfortable about your pronunciation.
Adults acquire languages differently from children, so I will make sure that you always understand what are you saying, why are you saying it, and in which situations you can use it.
