Talk to humans, not to apps!

You are learning a foreign language but you never talk to natives. You work only with apps. Does this make sense?

I am fluent in 4 foreign languages. I learnt them in courses at school or at the university.

Then I had the opportunity to practice almost all of them in the countries and regions of my multicultural country (Switzerland) where these languages are spoken, and I keep on doing so, because learning a foreign language is a process that never ends.

Since I am almost 50 years old, I grew up back then when internet didn’t even exist. TV has always been of great help, as well as surrounding myself with native speakers, making friends among them.

As a German teacher, I am often confronted with the question: “How can I improve my spoken German?”

My answer is: Stop learning exclusively with apps! They are not human! Languages were developed to communicate with other people! So come on, leave your comfort zone and start talking to native speakers of your target language! Make new friends among them!

I offer you German Tutoring with Main Focus Speaking on Zoom, Skype or Cisco Webex at prices of your country. I have more than 25 years’ teaching experience and I have also experience as a student, since I am learning 3 new languages this way.

Why I Moved The Free German Learning Group From WhatsApp To Telegram

Telegram is safer than WhatsApp

Hallo, Leute!

I care about your privacy.

WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging services in the world, but with the broadcast of it’s latest security breach I decided to abandon this app for Telegram.

With the acquisition of WhatsApp by Facebook – people are becoming increasingly suspicious of the platform’s security capacity. WhatsApp promised end-to-end encryption, but recent reports emerged suggesting that spy malware had been created that could hack into and monitor people’s accounts.

Telegram, on the other hand, is a multi-platform messaging application that allows the user to send encrypted and “self-destructing” messages – meaning a message or photo will disappear after a specified period of time.

Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram users have a public “username” – ensuring that privacy can be protected. It is possible to have conversations on Telegram without requiring a user’s phone. Get Telegram here: https://telegram.download-program.ru/

Tschüss!
