“For a couple of months now I am learning German with Tobias via Skype and I am fascinated by this modality because it is really practical. The lessons are very entertaining and you can use the time optimally to speak with a native German teacher. Tobias plans the lessons according to the level of learning and the needs of each student.

In my case (B2 level) it was important to talk about different topics, business German and analysis of some specic grammar topics, which is very difficult in a traditional language course.

Highlights: Tobias is very committed and pleasant as a teacher. He is always ready to help you. He uses different teaching methods and different materials (audios, movies, texts, etc.), so that you can integrate the knowledge in a very pleasant way.

nairobi-hernandez-de-la-cruzHer comment about the German lessons with Tobias Woelke:

“I am a 28-year-old pharmacist who moved to Zurich less than a year ago with a fairly weak B1 level. Of course I need the language to integrate in the country, but also to be able to practice my profession (minimum one B2).

At the beginning I did 2 hours every day in an intensive course at an academy. However, I realized that because of my shyness, I needed more individualized instruction, especially to overcome my fear of speaking. This is very important to make progress with a language. After reading the testimonials of other students about his lessons, I decided to learn German with him.

Since the first trial lesson, I realized how much he could help me in my learning process, not only by the way he teaches, always organized and focused on my goals, but also by his advice in the application of the language which even to date are very helpful.

Tobias is very professional, preparing and adapting each lesson individually to the needs and goals of the students, which is important to me because I had several unmotivated teachers in the language school and believe me; you notice the difference.

On the other hand, his desire to teach and his human qualities, which make him a teacher, are taught with lessons that are never boring and where I always learn something new. Not only did I notice the progress with the German language, but also with the people around me.

Finally, I would like to say that in my case I needed a B2 certifficate so that my title would be recognized in Switzerland and this summer thanks to Tobias’ help I was able to pass the B2 exam.
