“I simply love teaching. I am passionate about anything German, and particularly the language, and I really enjoy seeing learners progress through the stages of learning German, from complete Beginners through to Improvers. Learning a foreign language enables adults to engage with their native language, enhancing their literacy skills, as well as becoming more involved in the wider world community, for example, when travelling, or in twinning associations”.
