I have been teaching German and Spanish for the past 12 years, worked for Berlitz Language School, Language Academy in Dallas, TX and also a language school where I teach online. Teaching language is my passion, my lessons are vibrant, energetic, filled with conversations and I make sure I will make you talk very quickly. I am very efficient and I make it fun for you. Because of my extensive traveling, I also have the knowledge not only of the language, but also the culture, history, food and all additional aspects that you will learn. Learning the language goes along with the other cultural aspects. German is my native language, but my Spanish is excellent. I lived and studied in Spain, in the city of Salamanca where you learn the best Spanish - Castellano. I love what I do and I have fun teaching languages. I am good with people, I adapt very quickly to everybody's level and I know everybody is different. I guarantee you, you will learn to speak German and Spanish quickly and you won't be bored. Barbara

  What type of learner are you? Learning a new language will require you to memorize vocabulary and grammar.
