Skype German Lessons

Please could anyone recommend any places/people that I could contact?? I did German GCSE many years ago (and I think I got an E!!!) but am currently looking at Duolingo and DW.com A1 course but i'm struggling as I have no-one to practise with and know I need a push to get shifting with my learning so I am considering an intensive course as I need at the very least the basics to be able to look for work here!!! I'll be back in the UK for the next 6 weeks but then heading back to Switzerland to try and find work.

I'm using a combination of GermanOnlineInstitute and iTalki - the first for a more formal/structured setup, and the second for tutoring on those topics which I struggle with (dativ!)

If you're in the UK, look at the Goethe institut - they used to do a 2 week, intensive, 8hr/day course.

Re: Skype German Lessons

I have Skype lessons once a week with a German teacher that lives in London. Lessons are quite affordable too and she's very good.

If you'd like her details let me know.

Re: Skype German Lessons

Hi,
How did you find that person?
Are there any webs where people advertise for that?
Thanks

Re: Skype German Lessons

Thank you guys!! I've started lessons with a tutor on Verbalplanet which seems to be a good option for me at the moment - although I wonder if you guys know about the accreditation system - A1-C2 - do I need to take exams to show what level I'm at and can I access those myself??

What do you need the level for? If it is for a permit, yes, you need a certificate and one from some institutes only (not Migros for example).

Hi roegner,

Thank you for replying. I haven't really applied for much at the moment. I think with my lack of language skills it'll be something pretty low key. Some jobs I've looked at state basic German as a minimum, some request level B1 so I think it varies.
