About Joshua

I have been studying the German language for over 10 years now. I studied in High School, Junior College, underwent intensive language studies at Goethe Institut in Bremen, Germany, and finally got my degree in German at Texas State University May 2014. Summer of 2015 I took graduate coursework at UNM's German Summer School in Taos, NM. I was the long-term substitute teacher for the German program at San Marcos High School for 3 months Fall, 2015 and gained a strong rapport with my students because of my intensity and energy during instruction. I impressed teachers and administration with my natural teaching ability. I am currently enrolled in an alternative teaching certification program with the hope of teaching my own classroom in the very near future.

I love the German language, I still consider myself a student of it, however, I have much insight into its many seemingly daunting complexities. I have a working knowledge of the language, and insight that many native speakers cannot share. An English-speaking student, who is learning German as a second language later in their life, simply does not acquire languages in the same manner as many of our European friends. We need more attention, patience and we need someone who's had the same experience. I have this insight because I went through it. So, I gladly offer my perspective into the wonderful world of German. Whether you are looking for tips on best learning practices, advice with online aids and community resources, personal language development or if you are a student looking to gain a deeper understanding of elements of grammar, I got you.
