Hallo zusammen! Conversation & foreign language practice with a world traveller.
italki teacher since Apr 4, 2022
Hello everyone * Guten Tag * Grüezi * Hola * Bonjour
My name is Sybille, nickname Sybs, and I have always been fascinated by foreign languages. I am a world traveller, and I love to connect with people from different cultures & backgrounds. I grew up in Zug in Switzerland, and that is also the region my Swiss German accent stems from. Furthermore, I lived in Zürich, Luzern, Basel, Genf. My previous career was in nursing. I now work as a fashion stylist besides teaching languages. I have lived in the London, UK as well as in California, USA. I love swimming & surfing. I am looking forward to meet you. Let's have some fun learning a new language!
Me as a Teacher
I take teaching serious, and at the same time I like to have fun with it. Conversation is very important to me, and you will have the opportunity to practice talking, as that is how you get fluent speaking a new language. It is ok to make mistakes, as that is the only way to learn, and get better at speaking a foreign language. I teach kids & adults.
My lessons & teaching style
I like my classes to be interactive, which gives you time to practice talking to me, which is very important. I also use visual material, such as images, games, quizzes. I like to give a little task for homework, as in my own experience, the practice in between lessons helps the brain stay active by remembering the new skills learnt in the last class. And of course: Everything is more fun with a smile!
CANCELLATION POLICY: If you can't attend a scheduled lesson, and you give me less than 24 hours notice, or not at all, I will have to charge you the full lesson price. Thank you all for your cooperation!

This was only my second lesson with Sybs and I already learned so much! So flexible and customized. For example, the first lesson we mainly focused on speaking and now today we practiced all kinds of verbs.
