Our learners are happy!

Anna's course was great for me to learn German as I was pretty busy with my job during this time. I loved that I could book my private lessons in the evenings after work and choose the times that were best for me each week.

When I moved to Switzerland I wanted to learn German as fast as possible. I liked that I could learn more or less depending on my schedule. The personal support of Anna when I had questions and the language lessons with my private tutor really helped me to get to A1 asap.
