Joining a gym

This course is created similar to a real Life situation: 

  • on day 1 you will learn how you arrange a trial session at the gym
  • on day 2 in the morning is the day of your trial session and in the afternoon learn how to ask certain questions to get more information
  • on day 3 you will learn how to discuss the  gym experience with a friend and finally ...
  • on day 4 learn how to join the gym

The focus of this German course lies within 5 dialogs that assist you in practising conversation in form of role plays. Besides there are many possibilities given to consolidate the new learned words and phrases with the Worksheets and the Quizzes carefully created matching to each dialog.

There are no grammar lessons in this course. Its focus is on practising dialogs and listening comprehension. Therefore it's enjoyable and suitable only for learners that have finished B1 and are now at B2 Level and want to focus on listening, and speaking and rather the flow of language than the exact structure. 

Instructor M.A. Susanne Richter

When I first started teaching German in 2007, I had to confront a lot of challenges. I had no idea if I would ever be able to be a good German Language Tutor and make my students happy although I learned 2 Foreign Languages to fluency and I was holding a solid postgraduate University degree in "German as Foreign Language" and "Spanish studies" from University Leipzig, Germany.

So, I taught years at Sydney University, Highschools and private language schools and learned as much as I could along the way, and here I am. Now let me save you the time and trouble of learning German on your own. I’ve helped hundreds of people get to where they want to go with their learning goals.

I promise to you that with your passion and my know how, I’ll get you there too. You will learn faster and feel more confident and empowered to converse with anyone in German. You will feel secure in sentence structure and grammar as well as in pronunciation. And last but not least, you will know how to use learning strategies to improve your knowledge on your own.

I was born and raised in Germany. These days I am spending my time tutoring in Dresden, Berlin and in Sydney. Travelling enriches my Life and expands my mind. My little old camera is always there with me so I can capture the uniqueness of places and landscapes. Yoga and Meditation is another important part of my Life and so I became a Yoga Instructor so I could serve more language learners in their way of learning. The skills I gained from learning meditation and having practised meditation for many, many years are being more and more integrated by me and received very well by students who lack focus, are stressed or easily distracted.

My passion other than teaching German and learning languages is dance. Contemporary Dance inspires me to be creative beyond imagination.

Currently I'm studying "mind coaching" with Impact Theory as an online course where I get insight into habit forming, mechanics of learning and brain function.
