italki teacher since Dec 8, 2021
I am a German national with Mauritian roots. I grew up learning 3 languages at the same time. I learnt 2 more languages as a young adult. I have experienced the different methods and techniques used in language acquisition. Teaching languages is my new passion. I enjoy it! I am proud to have enabled many of my students to pass their exams or to reach their goals of speaking a foreign language.
Je suis de nationalité allemande avec des racines mauriciennes. J'ai grandi en apprenant trois langues en même temps. J'ai appris 2 autres langues en tant que jeune adulte. J'ai expérimenté les différentes méthodes et techniques utilisées dans l'acquisition des langues.
Me as a Teacher
As a language tutor/teacher, I believe, that my task is to provide you the tools, show you the methods and techniques to learn a new language. I am available at anytime, if you have questions and need help to solve language related problems. However, I expect my students to be disciplined, to work hard and to use the tools given to them. It's the student's responsibility to ensure, that he/she succeeds in learning a new language. I will accompany along the way to achieve your language learning goal. I am a funny guy as well, and I want my students to feel comfortable talking to me.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are swell structured. You won't get lost. My method allows you to speak on your first day, even though they are basic sentences. I use specific books, and Google docs. Together with learning how to read, write and listen, which is quite easy, we will practice a lot of speaking, giving you the opportunity to read texts and to speak. While reading and understanding might be easy, the greatest challenge is language production. My course focuses a lot on language production.
IMPORTANT!!!!I use Zoom and Skype for the lesson. To get the link, please write me. I will send you the details.

Ben is an amazing teacher! I have been taking lessons with him for a while now and I am learning so much. He is a very good conversationalist, can talk about any topic, very easygoing and fun to talk to. He provides perfect material for my level without overwhelming me. So I can say, that he really feels what a student needs and adapts accordingly.

2 Mauritian Creole lessons
As someone new to both creole and Italki as a whole, this class really got me excited about learning creole as well as just learning languages in general.
Ben is an excellent teacher and is great fun to learn with and I'd highly recommend anyone to book in a class with him
