Dear German learners. I am Jonas, originally from the south of Germany and I want to help you to improve your German speaking skills. I studied Philosophy and Mathematics and am currently working on my masters degree in Economics in Italy. I'm interested in a lot of things and love to travel!
Me as a Teacher
Sowohl Anfänger als auch Fortgeschrittene Deutschlerner sind sehr herzlich Willkommen. Ich werde mit euch geduldig und in einer angenehmen und motivierenden Gesprächsatmosphäre über Dinge reden, die euch interessieren.
Beginners and advance German students are very welcome. I will speak patiently with you in a comfortable and motivating atmosphere about everything that interests you.
My lessons & teaching style
Ich denke, dass es sehr wichtig ist, über Dinge zu reden, die einen interessieren und die einen motivieren, die Sprache weiterzulernen. Deshalb könnt Ihr Texte, Audio- oder Videodateien mitbringen und wir sprechen über sie. Ihr könnt mir auch sagen was euch interessiert, dann suche ich nach geeignetem Material.
I think it's important to talk about things that one finds interesting and motivates you to learn more of your target language. You can bring texts, audio and/or videofiles and we will talk about them in German. You can also tell me what you find interesting and I will search for adequate content.

Jonas was a very good teacher! Even though I had a 45 minutes lesson, I learned a lot of words. He challenged me and pushed me to talk about even more "difficult" and challenging topics. The conversation was very natural and fun. Highly recommended!

Jonas is an excellent teacher, he's very friendly and patient. I am a beginner, but I don't feel nervous to talk with Jonas because he's always so supportive and kind. I feel very motivated to learn German with Jonas.

Each lesson with Jonas is enjoyable and I learn new words and phrases every time! He is flexible in scheduling lessons and being able to chat without expectation and stress helps me to be more comfortable while speaking. He is open to go with the flow of the conversation and this makes me feel at ease to see myself participating in a conversation in a more natural way. Thank you!

This is how we did the Reading & Listening class with Jonas: I’ve started reading a text that I’ve previously selected. After each paragraph, I tried to summarize what I think that I understood and get clarifications from Jonas of the words and phrases that I didn’t quite get.
He also corrects me right away when I misunderstood something. I find this method is a great way for me to check my reading and listening comprehension. I’ve learned so many new words and phrases! But more importantly, I get to correct the words and phrases that I mistakenly learned in a wrong way. Jonas is always very kind, attentive and willing to provide extensive clarifications about the meanings of words.
Always looking forward to the next class!
