Looking for a private german teacher

Hello,

I have finished B1 level in german and currently doing b1+. Also got my Goethe test for B1. I have difficulties with speaking as I have no chance to practise it in my daily life. (Surrended by other languages)

Therefore I would like to take private 1-2 times weekly speaking classes which will not cost me an arm and a leg, preferably in Oerlikon area.

Any recommandations on how to find one would be welcomed.

Thank you,
Ella

Re: Looking for a private german teacher

Look for a "walk and talk" friend who is a native German speaker. Meet once or twice a week and exchange spoken language skills.

When you go to the shops, if you go to the same ones all the time, ask them to talk to you only in German, explain you need the practice and you want them to correct you when you get it wrong.

Do not be embarrassed, this is the hardest hurdle I think. If you feel embarrassed when you speak, you won't.

The only way to get better is to speak the language, errors no all. Soon people you see daily or weekly will understand you are trying to learn and mostly will help you in that. That has been my experience any way.
