About me

I’m Ella, a third-year student studying Spanish and German at the University of Exeter. Learning another language can open up many pathways for a student, allowing them to learn about and adapt to new cultures. Being able to communicate well with someone is, in my opinion, the most important skill you can have, however, often teaching in schools focuses on writing, reading and listening. In my sessions I will give the students a chance to speak in the language they’re studying, so that they feel comfortable using it in real life situations. I found exams, personally, very stressful when I was at school, especially GCSEs, as in a short period of time I had to sit 25 exams, which I believed would make or break my life. Retrospectively, I now can see that although exams are important, what is more important is finding enjoyment within subjects. Within my tutor sessions I hope to be able to help my students have some fun with languages, as well as figure out which subjects are for them. At university I am part of many societies, including MUN and Maths Society. I am very glad I joined Maths Society when I started University, as I had worried that I would no longer be able to pursue my interest in Maths after school and joining MUN has really helped with my confidence as it requires public speaking. Hopefully, through my tutoring I will be able to improve the self-confidence of my students, as I think that self-belief is key in achieving the results you want.

About my sessions

I think in terms of language tuition it is important to know what specifics a student is struggling with and to cater the sessions to focus on resolving them. However, I will always make sure to incorporate elements of speaking into every session as I believe this is not covered enough within schools. I think it is important to set goals and therefore I will set work for outside of the lessons. This work will consist of an exercise, that won’t take too much time as I understand that students have to balance all the work set from school too. In the next session we will then discuss this exercise going through any mistakes and figuring out why they were made. It’s not something to stress about, only a way to measure improvement and to help the student figure out what they're finding difficult. I am also a fan of using games in order to promote learning and as I have taught in schools before I will incorporate some of the resources I have found effective. I will start each of my tutorials asking the student if there is any homework they have been set which they have questions about or any concepts they are struggling with, if so I will aim to resolve these questions and if not then I will provide activities which relate to the point in the syllabus that they're currently at. I hope I will be able to discover which learning methods are effective for each individual and be able to adapt my sessions to work with this.

Questions Ella has answered

What is the conditional tense and how do I use it?

The conditional tense is used in German to state what might happen if something else were to happen. It is called the conditional because it is dependant on a certain condition in order to come true.To form this tense all you need is to conjugate the verb würden depending on the subject of the sentence, for exampleich würde - I woulddu würdest - You (sing.) woulder/sie/es würde - He/she/it wouldwir würden - We wouldihr würdet - You (pl.) wouldSie/sie würden - You (f.)/they wouldThis conjugated form is then used together with the main verb in its infinitive which is sent to the end of the clause.For example, if you wanted to say 'I would buy a house', this would become 'Ich würde ein Haus kaufen', with kaufen being the main verb in its infinitive.The conditional tense is used in German to state what might happen if something else were to happen.
