 have to say

"I am currently taking Sprachraum’s A1.3 class, having completed the A1.1 and A1.2 classes. I have thoroughly enjoyed taking these classes and feel much more confident with German. Natasha’s engaging teaching style and enthusiasm for the German language have made learning German extremely fun. In particular, I have enjoyed her approach to teaching the rules of German grammar, something which I was always slightly afraid of. Learning the mechanics of the language and then building on this with writing, speaking, reading and listening exercises has really instilled these rules in me. I look forward to continuing my German journey with Natasha and Sprachraum and would not hesitate to recommend Sprachraum to anyone wanting to learn German."

"I have just completed the A1.1 course, and I have to say it’s been a great experience. Natasha’s approach enabled me to learn a lot in a short period. The way she explained grammar was very easy to understand and retain the knowledge. She made learning a new language easier than I thought it would be. The content we covered will be very useful next time I will visit Germany. I can’t wait to practice what I've learnt so far with locals. She is a great teacher with a fantastic sense of humour.

I also enjoyed the small group class, which I think benefited me more than a bigger group would have. The small group meant Natasha had more time for each of us.

The office is also conveniently situated near Bank/Cannon Street/Monument stations which is helps as well. I am very excited to continue with the next part A1.2. and learn more."

 

Martina B.

"Natasha offers excellent classes with a great mix of speaking, listening, reading and writing! Students are encouraged to participate and mistakes are seen as part of the learning process which really helps in building confidence. The A1 and A2 modules provide structure whilst the energetic & positive nature of the lessons prevents it feeling like you're back at school! Highly recommend to anyone who is looking to learn or improve their German!"

 

Tom B.

"Natasha is an excellent tutor who creates a fun and engaging environment for her students. I have studied with her through both A1 courses and found a huge improvement in my understanding of both German language and culture. I am looking forward to continuing to learn with her."

"After taking both A1.1 and A1.2 group courses I can tell you that the classes are fun and approachable. Having a class this central made it simple to come after work. We will be back! (and not just for the biscuits!)"

 

Adon Buckley
Architect

"Having recently completed the A1.1 course I can easily say that Natasha's teaching and lessons have made learning German much easier than I had imagined. Small groups and relaxed environment makes learning much more focused on the needs of the group and I can not wait to start the next course in the coming week."

 

Reza S.

"I've recently completed level A1.1 course & I can say that Natasha's lessons and teaching has been a great help. Course content, structure is great & also Natasha makes it very fun and interesting to learn. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to start learning German."
