    About me

    During and after my studies I spent a lot of time abroad and got to know personally all the challenges that come with life in a new city with a foreign language. It’s not only essential to learn a new language, but also to understand a new culture, to settle into a new environment and to form friendships. I would like to connect all these aspects in my language academy.

    The aim

    This surrounding field, in combination with creative, innovative methods, brings every student, from beginner to advanced learner, not only the desired success but also a lot of joy, fun and a new feeling of companionship in this foreign living environment.

    To know how to do something well
    is to enjoy it.
