Course testimonials:

  • The tutor was excellent
  • Wiebke is a wonderful teacher and I really enjoyed what was taught in German 1. Will be continuing next year with German 2.
  • I enjoyed the way our teacher presented all the information. She was quite organised and made sure we understood the content before moving on. I would have liked it if we did a little bit more speaking practice but overall it was quite good.
