German as a second language
I come from Brasil, am a registered nurse, and have lived in Germany for eight months. In order to to work as a nurse in Germany I need to learn better German. Unfortunately I don’t have the time for a typical German course at a language school. The online course from Lerntransit is ideal for me. I can learn German on my own schedule—stress free!
Listening. Reading. Speaking.
German for my colleague
As a Human Resources Manager I’ve hired many foreigners. Often their knowledge of German doesn’t suffice to work as a craftsman. Additionally, regular shift work makes it difficult for them to attend a typical speaking course. With Lerntransit, my fellow employees can learn German however flexibly they require, and still with a personal touch, even specific to their craft/job.
Listening. Reading. Speaking.
German for Tests
I’m preparing for the B1 level German test in my local German class. Despite the course, I am still uncertain whether I will pass the test or not. That’s why a couple of weeks ago I began using Lerntransit: my teacher/tutor motivates me and repeats the lectures with me, which I still don’t understand so well. Since beginning with Lerntransit I feel much more relaxed about passing my German test—in fact, I’m now certain I’ll pass!
