I am teaching German as well as French to language enthusiasts and am a trained translator graduate from The French Institute of Translation and Cross-Cultural Management (ISIT). After 5 years of studying German and English literature, language, and culture in Paris, Vienna, and Munich, I moved to Berlin about 3 years ago.

I will be happy to support you on your learning path, whether you are new to German and French or aiming for perfect fluency.
