Language Training and Coaching
This specialized concept of combined language training and personal coaching has one aim: to get you talking in German.
Improve your conversation and negotiation skills, learn more about yourself and enhance your German at the same time. These courses will get you into the flow of speaking and expressing your thoughts and feelings confidently, just like a native.
Your coach will support you with motivating exercises, sensitively framed vocabulary, and linguistic structures as well as with her broad coaching experience. Through this approach you will make German YOUR language.
Your Coach: Urte Reckowsky is a coach, business psychologist (M.Sc.) and language trainer (M.A.). Her combined language and coaching courses go much further than regular language training thanks to her wealth of knowledge about the process of language learning and how it relates to the different life phases and to adjustment to the host country.
Let’s Talk! Conversation in German
Would you like to express yourself better in everyday life or at work? Join in a conversation with ease? Let’s talk – we’ll discuss current topics, talk about (life in) Switzerland, your work or hobbies, about sport, literature – whatever interests you. We will go over a few rules of grammar again and expand your vocabulary.
Discover hidden talents and master the art of compelling conversation!
(For language skills from A2 level onwards.)
Brush-up your German – Facing challenges with confidence
Perhaps you haven’t spoken German for a while and a job interview is looming. Or maybe you would like to give a presentation or participate in negotiations. We can practice specifically for such an event. Two or three or sometimes even a single session can be enough.
Taking German to the next level & Goethe certificates
I offer complete advanced courses to take your language skills to the next level, including preparation for Goethe Institute examinations. All levels from A1 to C2 – intense and to the point, or more extended during a longer period. Private lessons or learning in small groups – just as you like.
Reflection – Think in German
Do you have a lot on your mind? Would you like a chance to sort through and reflect on specific issues?
In the course of a light conversation we’ll take a fresh look at the topics you’d like to discuss. I might explain some psychological models that help better understand human behavior and interactions.
And you get German practice at the same time.
Specific Grammar explanations are not part of this offer, but you will expand your vocabulary. This offer is also available in English.
Creative writing – Improving your German in a creative way
Do you already enjoy writing? Or maybe you always wanted to give it a go … Why not combine writing with learning German? With many stimulating exercises, visits to museums and texts from Swiss and German authors – let’s discover new aspects of the German language.
What’s more, creative writing can also provide a fresh impetus for anyone whose work involves scientific or professional writing. These workshops have already witnessed the birth of more than one story, script or original article!
(For language skills from B1 level onwards.)
These courses are one-to-one sessions. But if you prefer to attend in a small group of friends this is also possible. If you want me to try to find some other participants, this might be possible as well. Just let me know and we will find a way.
