Advantages of mini groups
Our classes do not exceed 5 persons but may very well be even smaller. The fewer students per class the more intense the tuition will become.
- You will be able to speak a lot more
- The learning experience is much more intense than in a larger group
- The fewer students, the more intense the tuition becomes.
- We can focus better on the needs of everybody.
Strong focus on conversation
Our experience shows that students want and need to train their talking ability the most. Usually they are already very strong in grammar and their writing skills. The weakest point usually is the ability to express themselves orally in German properly and fluently. Therefor we decided to focus on improving your talking skill. Our small classes will give you the opportunity to talk a lot - everybody just gets to talk more as there are only a few students.
Your listening comprehension will also be trained at the same time - all teachers are native speakers of German. Short reviews and exercices of grammar or pronunciation and vocabulary build-up complement our classes.
Contents of course
We will cover various topics to help you build-up vocabulary. Teachers will use different methods to exercise and help you use and remember the newly learned words and grammar matters like small role-plays, listening comprehensions, fill-in texts, writing exercises, etc.
We do not only teach German but we also want to share as much of our culture with you as possible. Therefor we often work with texts about Austrian and Viennese culture. This way you will get to know more about our traditions and people, our feasts, history and monuments.
