Does this resonate with you?
Have you been learning German for a while but you find that you can’t follow real-life conversations in German?
You’d like to watch German films, the news and TV programmes but they're too fast and full of words and expressions that you don't understand?
You'd like to read books but they too have so many new words and phrases that nobody has ever taught you and it's so frustrating to look them all up?
This is because you’ve been learning "course book speak" and that isn’t what's actually spoken by German native speakers.
Well, I’m a German native speaker and I’d like to show you the best way to learn how to speak like a native.
I'd like to teach you real, authentic German words and phrases.
And more than that, I'd like to practice them with you so that you can use them with confidence.
So - are you an intermediate student ready to make the jump from "course book speak" to Real Talk? Na, dann los!
