About Me
italki teacher since Jan 4, 2017
For me, languages are an art, not a science. Since my childhood, I've always been surrounded by at least two languages. Now I'm learning my eighth. Looking at both kids and adults, I figured out that they essentially face the same challenge, the only difference being that the child learns completely unconsciously. So I wanted to know: How do you get adults to imitate the unconscious learning strategies of a child? Yes, it works. It works amazingly!

Very entertaining. Also my first time to meet someone who really cares about my needs and don't abide by a predefined agenda. Also the tips and hacks he gave me for acquiring the target language and assimilating its content are invaluable.

Jan is an exceptional teacher! Not only does he have a unique method of teaching German (or any language for that matter); he is also incredibly knowledgeable in various topics. This makes conversations with him very enjoyable and enlightening. I totally look forward to each lesson and I must admit, I feel almost sad when the lesson is over. It actually feels more like play than work and yet I realize I’m learning. I highly recommend Jan as a teacher. If you’re planning on taking German lessons, definitely give Jan a try.

With Jan's "brain friendly" methodology for learning languages I was able to remember all of the words that we discussed and I practiced last week. We have chosen movie and tv show quotes to concentrate on in the last two classes, which is a topic of interest to me - another key to enjoyable and effective learning. Thank you, Jan! See you next week.

I really love Jan's lessons. He has tonnes of knowledge about the origins of words which I find really interesting. It also helps a lot with remembering new words and making better guesses at the meaning of new words. I also liked his energy levels and the lesson pace. Thanks Jan
