作為德福和telc考官，我將為您提供專業的德語語言能力評估，傳授實用的應試技巧，並在模擬測試的基礎之上，對聽、說、讀、寫做出針對性的訓練。 期待與您的合作！ Language examinations are not only about the language itself. It is therefore crucial for us to learn how the exam is designed, what types of knowledge are tested, and by what criteria you are judged. To ace the exam, we have to feed the examiners exactly what they expect to read and hear from you. I am a certified examiner for TestDaF and telc, and I specialize in test preparation (Goethe-Zertifikat, TestDaF, telc, and DSH) and application training. I offer general language courses, and specific classes of conversation, writing, proofreading, test preparation, presentation/interview preparation, and application training. My focus is on intermediate and advanced German learners (B1-C2), who need a higher level of accuracy and fluency in terms of exposition, argumentation, and self-expression. I have been teaching German at one of the most prestigious language schools in Berlin for over six years. I hold a Magister (German equivalent to the master's degree) in Germanistics (German language, literature, and history) from Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (2001), and a teaching certificate of German as a foreign language from Goethe-Institut München (2010). Before becoming a German language teacher, I was a journalist for six years at a local newspaper in Potsdam, Germany. Currently, I am working on my bachelor's degree in psychology at Fernuniversität in Hagen. It would be a great honor and pleasure for me to become a part of your language and/or career project(s). I look forward to working together with you, and establishing a collaborative relationship that would inspire and motivate both of us!
