"I now have the confidence to engage in German conversations with my German co-workers. They were surprised at the level of my German for someone who just started learning (I had only been working with Dilyana for little over two months)"
Learning German in 2 Months
"I received an employment offer in Germany for which I need to communicate effectively, in ‘business German’. Time was not on my side and I spoke only ‘broken tourist German’. I considered my options. Self-study with books and apps, or perhaps formal classes? There are hundreds of generic products out there. These can easily turn into a waste of time. I needed an intensive learning programme, customised for my goals and focused on my work environment. I had to find a personal tutor.
I contacted Dilyana. She conducted an initial assessment of my situation, learning goals and timelines. She introduced a structured programme, customised for me. I was surprised at how quickly we started meeting these goals after only a few lessons. Speaking German already feels more natural and I now have the confidence to engage in German conversations with my German co-workers. They were surprised at the level of my German for someone who just started learning (I had only been working with Dilyana for little over two months).
Dilyana has extensive German tutoring experience. She has personally learned six languages and knows the difficulties, pitfalls and frustrations of learning a new language. This is a distinct advantage over a ‘German only’ tutor. She has also lived in many different countries, including Germany, and offered good advice on integrating into the German society.
Dilyana falls in with my schedule and is very accommodative. We have Skype lessons anytime and anywhere, with targeted exercises and regular feedback in between. The lessons are intensive and highly engaging. Learning is tackled with enthusiasm and fervour. If you are looking for someone who is as motivated and driven to improve your German as you are, then I could only recommend one person."
