Hello! Im Millie, a 19 year old student currently studying German and Russian at the University of St Andrews. Languages are one of the few things that can connect people from across the world on a personal level. The ability to communicate with a foreign language speaker is invaluable, particularly in the UK today where we are experiencing political and economic changes, meaning we must communicate with world leaders and other citizens during pressing situations. Learning a language such as German has never been more powerful and to me, it is a rewarding lifetime investment. Languages offer new words and phrases through which you can express your emotions and improve your self confidence from pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone in order to speak your mind in a new way, with people from new cultures. As a student myself, I know firsthand just how difficult learning a new language can be and I have definitely struggled with vocab and grammar. However it is through facing these difficulties that I have learned several useful methods to learning the new words, rules and phrases that can often seem overwhelming. Learning something new requires dedication and can be time consuming, but the difficulty doesn't mean that it can't be fun and mastering German is a skill you will appreciate endlessly.

About my sessions

To begin each session we can discuss any topics you have been finding difficult in your recent lessons, followed by a short translation sentence or German 'brainteaser' to engage your brain into the language. This may also highlight areas of grammar or vocabulary that you are struggling with. Any grammar points or cultural knowledge will be explained with the opportunity to take notes or refer back to mine following the lesson and we can work together to tackle translations, reading,...

To begin each session we can discuss any topics you have been finding difficult in your recent lessons, followed by a short translation sentence or German 'brainteaser' to engage your brain into the language. This may also highlight areas of grammar or vocabulary that you are struggling with. Any grammar points or cultural knowledge will be explained with the opportunity to take notes or refer back to mine following the lesson and we can work together to tackle translations, reading, writing and listening tasks. If you have any written work that you would like reviewing I can also help to talk through this and help you understand corrections. Another important factor of language learning is vocabulary and upon request I can create Quizlet sets of topic specific vocab including difficult words from the lessons, which you can then review and be reminded of in following lessons to ensure your confidence. Throughout the lessons there will also be an element of German language speaking in order to familiarise you with its sound and pace as practice for your listening and speaking exams. This can be increased over time as you become more comfortable.
