Bio Statement I studied Germanic linguistics and graduated with a master’s degree in Anglo-Saxon language and literature and later earned a PhD in “teaching German to speakers of other languages” from the Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany. Despite my brief academic stint I have been a German teacher throughout most of my 20+ years of professional life, teaching German to foreign native speakers in Bochum and Berlin. However, in the past ten years my focus has been shifting towards online teaching as today about half of my students live outside Germany. Internet-based communication technology enables me to connect with students in faraway places over Skype or virtual classroom and ensures interactivity just like we have in a regular classroom at school. Internet and communication technology have not just opened access to language education to millions of people who have not had this opportunity before but it has also become a breeding ground for a variety of new teaching materials and tools that make language learning more engaging and entertaining and therefore more efficient. I am a strong believer in distance language learning and run a website LearnGermanOnline.org to help people around the world learn German without having to spend a dime or leaving the comfort of their home. German learners can find there all sorts of learning materials and tools, mobile language apps, examples of language proficiency examinations, interactive online tests, reading materials, links to German TV and radio and all of that is free for download or online use. Those who wish to train their German communication skills with a real person can connect with native-speaking conversation partners who will act as their language tutors or if they are willing to spend some money they can find there professional German online teachers like myself who can provide tailor-made one-on-one online lessons or standard group courses over Skype or virtual classroom. There is more than enough for anyone to learn a German language fluently on this platform. In order to keep my online students motivated I have also included practical information on popular topics that are of great interest to many of them such as studying, working and living in Germany. Today, even the sternest opponents of informal distance learning admit that for many people e-learning is an efficient and practical way of learning a foreign language fluently.
