Teaching materials for pronunciation training 

The costs for the copies are not included in the course price. In class you work with exercises from special phonetic books and small simple texts. Your teacher will adjust the necessary exercises to the course each time. You work with copies that you will get from your teacher.

Teacher for the phonetics course 

Your teacher is a native German speaker and has a lot of experience in the field of phonetics, both from studies, as well as from actually practicing in German courses. Together we analyze the difficulties of the German pronunciation and practise speaking and listening with effective exercises.

You will notice how your pronunciation improves and that you will become more secure. Soon you will speak German with joy and confidence.

The group is very small, in order for you to learn more effectively and to speak more often.
