Language Courses

Experience language learning actively!

Would you like to learn German or English - or refresh your language knowledge?

Tailored courses

The Travelling Teacher helps you individually and with tailored courses based on three learning options!

T1 – Building-Block Training:

The Building-Block method focusses on your potential for improvement. Here, a specific area is primarily practised. This can take place on site or wherever you are, in case you are often away on business or not available for some other reason. The location-independent training can be provided by means of telephone, Skype and/or email coaching.

Main areas which could be practised with particular focus include:
- Listening comprehension – Pronunciation – Vocabulary – Sentence formation – Writing skills / Writing training – Speaking skills / Conversation – Presentations – Reading comprehension – Creative writing

 T2 - Active Training:

Active Training combines language learning with activities such as language tours, language hiking tours, city breaks or cultural events. Language learning in combination with activities and new discoveries is a very effective method which can be a lot of fun. Moving away from course books and towards activities in the fresh air – mental fitness combined with physical fitness. As a consequence, different brain regions are activated, which guarantee better retentiveness. You will associate what has been learned with new impressions and experiences, together with your language skills you will also save pictures, smells and special moments. Learning a language will turn out to be something very special, something adventurous, you will discover not only new pages in a course book, but also in other countries or cities and ultimately in yourself!      

Examples of active training:    
- 4 days German as a Foreign Language in Hamburg, Weimar, Nuremberg or Berlin
- 3-5 days English in London or Dublin
- 1-5 days language hiking tour German as a Foreign Language in the Black Forest
- and other city breaks, intensive training or hiking tours anywhere you want to go!
- The programme is tailored to your individual interests and preferences!

T3 - Classical Training:

The classical language training takes place on site or wherever you are with well-established classical language teaching methods using a course book. The session takes place as intensive and one-to-one training, in small groups or in groups of max. 15 participants. We offer training for adults, trainees, apprentices, students, and pupils.

The offer comprises: 
Private and Company Courses – Remedial Teaching – Professional Training – Educational Leave – Exam Preparation        

In addition to the course book, audio and video podcasts are used, as well as up-to-date news articles. The classical method can also be combined with components like tele-coaching, email training, Skype training, presentation skills training on site or wherever you are. Of course, the classical training can also be combined with language tours, language hiking tours or cultural events like visiting the cinema, the theatre or a museum with a linguistic and content-based focus.
