I am Yasemin, a native German speaker born and raised in Germany, but currently based in England. I am a self-employed proofreader, editor, translator and online teacher with experience in exam preparation (Goethe and telc certificates) for all levels (A1 to C2), business German and daily use conversation.
I have been giving German lessons for the past eight years in Germany, Spain and Turkey. In my experience motivation and a clear structure are all you need to learn a new language.
* How are you going to help me? *
Let's figure out your individual learning goals first! We will not just use grammar books and memorize vocabulary, but rather make use of innovative learning techniques, such as games, videos and music. Although grammar is essential in order to lay the foundation for making sentences yourself, the focus is on speaking practice.
However, your preferences matter the most! In a first conversation we will find out what goals you want to achieve. We adapt to your personal learning style and set future goals together. Depending on your level of language, I suggest a learning plan tailored to your needs.
In addition, I will provide you with exercises you can work on between our lessons. Throughout your learning journey, I will evaluate your learning progress and help you proceed most efficiently.
* What do I need? *
You don't have to worry about any learning material. I will provide you with all ressources we are going to use. However, if there is anything you would like to work on, feel free to let me know! Other than that, make sure you can have our lessons in a quiet place with a stable internet connection.
* What is the cancellation policy? *
Please note that if you cannot attend a lesson, you have the option to unschedule it more than 12 hours in advance of the lesson's start time.
If you prefer to cancel it, you will receive a 100% refund more than 12 hours in advance of a lesson's start time, or a 50% refund within 12 hours of the lesson's start time.
If you miss a lesson without prior notice, you will be fully charged. This also applies if you join your lesson late or face technical difficulties. Please always make sure beforehand that your internet connection is stable and both your camera and microphone working well.
I therefore strongly advise you to inform me early enough if you wish to reschedule or cancel a lesson. However, I understand that anyone can miss a lesson due to unforeseen circumstances or emergencies. If you believe that this is the case, do not hesitate to let me know.
* What else do I need to know? *
Please be aware that one lesson lasts for 55 minutes due to consecutive lessons.
Sounds good? Great, let's get it started! :-)
