Hi, I’m Jonatan, a native German speaker living in Jena, a beautiful city in the center of Germany. I’m a law student and work as a freelance translator on the side, translating from Chinese to German. I’m deeply passionate about language learning and helping people to achieve their language goals.
Me as a Teacher
I’m a firm believer in the principle of “learning by doing”. If you want to improve your German, you need to spend a lot of time using the German language, speaking it, hearing it, reading it, and writing it. That’s what I want to help you with. My lessons are all about you actively using the German language. I adjust my lessons to your language level and your specific goals. I can give you feedback about your pronunciation, your grammar, and your choice of words and tell you how to improve. I write down important things from the lesson in a document and send it to you.
My lessons & teaching style
I offer two kinds of lessons:
In my textbook-based lessons, we work with a textbook chosen by either you or me. Those lessons include speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, and homework (if you want). No matter whether you’re a total beginner or an advanced student – textbook-based lessons offer a systematic way to increase your German language abilities. You will make clear, measurable progress.
My conversation practice lessons are focused on having interesting conversations in a relaxed atmosphere. We can talk about anything you want. In case you’re unsure what to talk about, I’ll always have different possible topics of conversation ready.
