The course has really great tips for the sprechen part, it's so much simpler and clearer than what I have seen on youtube, which I must admit has caused me in the past to panic due to elaborate presentations, and complex vocabulary used in the YouTube presentation examples.


I went through the course step by step. It helped me focus my energy on the important things. This course saved me invaluable minutes. I doubt I would have passed the exam without it!


My main aim is to make the German learning process easy to follow and enjoyable.

Benefit from (my) 20 years of insight in the field. I used to teach in several language schools in different countries until I got frustrated with their system of teaching.

Life is way too short not to enjoy learning German. School worked hard to take the joy out of this otherwise beautiful experience. Let’s rekindle that fire.
