Teaching German as a Foreign Language, English and Japanese
German, English and Japanese lessons for 1-5 adults at Hohenzollernplatz and by Skype.
Lessons with Patience and Empathy
Hello, my name is Maximiliane Demmel-Bullock and I teach German and Japanese in Munich. I have many years experience of teaching German as a foreign language, so I have acquired an insight to the role of the student, placing individual aims to the foreground and dividing the lessons into segments that you can cope with.
Lessons with Structure
I follow a structured syllabus, but do make adaptations to the individual requests of my students.
Lessons with Fun
I set a high precedent on conversation where students can talk about their backgrounds.
In this way an individual vocabulary can develop that can be immediately applied in their private and professional lives and the lessons become more enjoyable for the student. I also use language board games because learning in a playful way leads to better results. Or I make my students watch German movies so that they can improve their listening skills. (There are more good German films than you think!)
Lessons you can fully understand
Advanced German lessons are conducted mainly in German, but, initially I will also use English or Japanese in order to explain points of grammar.
The material is predominantly German, however I gladly explain unclear or difficult items in English or Japanese. I have experience with the following German textbooks: Schritte, Begegnungen, Erkundungen, em, studio d, Tangram.
Success stories of students because of my own experience
I have already prepared students successfully for the A1 to C1 examinations of the Goethe institute and for the telc certificates and will be happy to continue to do this. (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR))
I myself have mastered several examinations up to C2 in foreign languages and so I know how the students should be prepared for the tests. (Cambridge Certificate (C2) of Proficiency in English, the Cambridge Business English Certificate Higher (C1), DELF B2 (Diplôme d'Études en Langue Francaise, Diplomas de Español como Lengua Extranjera DELE B1, Chinese HSK2)
Beginners lessons in Japanese
I also teach Japanese for beginners. The textbooks I use are „Japanese for Busy People“, "Konnichiwa Japan" and "Nihongo e Youkoso". I have mastered the Certificate Japanese-Language Proficiency 2nd (日本語能力試験N2レベル).
