“Learning a new language is so easy,” said no one ever. Arriving in a new country can be a daunting prospect. This is especially the case for expatriate women who find themselves in a German-speaking country with minimal language skills if any. Suddenly, easy tasks became a hassle. Ordinary things like making a doctor’s appointment or completing an application form turn into complicated tasks filled with anxiety and nervousness. While enrolling in online courses might help, learning on your own can be a struggle. Additionally, you’ll need some help from those around you during this transitory period until you can communicate fluently. Not only does this dependency and exclusion lead to overwhelming frustration and loneliness, but it can also take a toll on your mental health and well-being.
Between navigating a hectic work schedule, friendships, and the delights of bureaucracy, most expats agree the pressure doesn’t always allow for self-learning. Enrolling in specially tailored German lessons designed to build your skills can significantly speed-up your learning process. My program features a blend of German lessons with personality development and mindset work for the ultimate learning experience. This unique combination helps you understand German with much ease and eliminates any hidden fears you might have. As you work with me, you will feel more relieved, empowered, and even feel at ease speaking German. This ability to express yourself will improve your social life and make you feel more relaxed, integrated, and at home.
Learning German doesn’t have to be as daunting as it sounds. For over ten years, I have worked with numerous clients including the World Bank and the United Nations in Vienna with my tried and tested strategy.
and well looked after.
