Our Team for German as a Foreign Language

We are a young dynamic team with international experience in teaching German as a foreign language and look forward to welcoming you at our school. All German teachers are highly qualified and teach their native language with passion. They speak several foreign languages and have gained experience in Germany and abroad. Due to the high intercultural competence we can respond to language differences as well as to the cultural features that characterize our students. 

The Sprachschatz-team ensures that every student feels comfortable, has fun learning German and attains the maximum learning outcome. Personal contact is very important to us.
