Partner for German

"Language is the dress of thought."
Samuel Johnson, English writer and scholar.

I offer support and training individually or in small groups. Thanks to my broad experience with foreigners in Germany and abroad I have learned to respond to people coming from very different cultures.

I am a DaF-teacher (DaF: German as a foreign language), certified by the Goethe-Institute. Also, I belong to Partner für Deutsch (, a team of German teachers specialising in one-to-one training and support concerning the German language. 

As a journalist I have worked in German but also in Russian, Spanish, English and French. In addition, I am a speechwriter for politicians, business people and culture shapers. Thanks to these wide-ranging inputs and tasks, I am deeply familiar with the challenges of expressing oneself in another language. 

I teach:

  • German as a precise, descriptive, clear and lively language (all levels of the Common European Framework References for Languages A1-C2) including preparation for exams.

I offer: 

  • advice and support with writing texts, preparing speeches and hitting the right note.
  • research and support in getting ready for important negotiations.
  • working together with in-depth spoken and written German on special topics.
  • efficient preparation for interviews or other meetings (Including pronunciation).
  • debate on real-life, current political, literary or social topics.
  • hints on how to be at ease with German small talk.
  • amusing examples of German words and phrases to avoid!

Above all, the German language opens up a rich new world to my clients.
