Ana Dil


I am a certified examiner for TestDaF and telc, and I specialize in test preparation (Goethe-Zertifikat, GDS, TestDaF, telc, ├ľSD, Abitur, A-Level and AP German) and application training.
I offer both general and intensive German language courses, and specific classes of grammar, conversation, writing, test preparation, proofreading, presentation/interview preparation, and application training. (Please find here below the details.)
My focus is on intermediate and advanced German learners (B1-C2), who need a higher level of accuracy and fluency in terms of exposition, argumentation and self-expression.
I have been teaching German at one of the most prestigious language schools in Berlin for over six years. I hold a Magister (German equivalent to the master's degree) in Germanistics (German language, literature, and history) from Humboldt-Universit├Ąt zu Berlin (2001), and a teaching certificate of German as a foreign language from Goethe-Institut M├╝nchen (2010). Before becoming a language teacher, I was a journalist for six years at a local newspaper in Potsdam. Currently, I am working on my bachelor's degree in psychology at Fernuniversit├Ąt in Hagen.
It would be a great honor and pleasure for me to become a part of your language and/or career project(s). I look forward to working together with you, and establishing a collaborative relationship that would inspire and motivate both of us!

Ôś× Deutsch (Grammatikkurs / Konversationskurs / Schreibkurs / Intensivkurs)

ÔŚĆ Concerning grammar:
The Four Horsemen of German grammar are grammatical gender, adjective declension, verbs with prepositions, and subordinate clauses. It is not difficult to learn the rules and exceptions, but rather to apply them.
This course aims to integrate the grammar into daily conversations by automatizing the process.

ÔŚĆ Concerning speaking:
Generally speaking, words that we can comprehend and respond to (receptive vocabulary) are up to ten times more than the ones that we can express and speak out (productive vocabulary). But there are always reasons why we are not able to express ourselves in an efficient, effective, and well-mannered way.
This course targets at the transition from receptive vocabulary to productive vocabulary. Together, we will diagnose the problem(s), look for solutions, and further work on the four domains of speaking: pronunciation, fluency, the command and range of vocabulary, and grammatical errors.

ÔŚĆ Concerning writing:
What should I think about before writing an essay?
How to present the material and organize my arguments/counter-arguments accordingly?
Which kind of text structure should I apply?
This course guides you through the process of producing a German text.

Ôś× Testvorbereitung (Goethe-Zertifikat, GDS, TestDaF, telc, ├ľSD, etc.)

Language examinations are not only about the language itself. It is therefore crucial for us to learn how the exam is designed, what types of knowledge are tested, and by what criteria you are judged. To ace the exam, we have to feed the examiners exactly what they expect to read and hear from you.

Ôś× Deutsch f├╝r den Beruf

Business German courses for engineers, medical staff, journalists, and teachers.

Ôś× Deutschsprachige Literatur

This course leads you to native-like proficiency in German through intensive reading.
We will select and read together certain literary, philosophical, theological, and/or historical texts that you are interested in. Each lesson begins with a detailed analysis of the text, and ends up with a free discussion of the relevant topic on the basis of close reading. You will also be asked to present and write a summary of the text.

Ôś× Bewerbungstraining / Pr├Ąsentationsvorbereitung

Persuasion is an art. This course is about how to introduce yourself, present your insights & ideas, and market your expertise & experience in German. It helps you to prepare for your job interview, thesis defense, and conference presentation.
The style of your presentation is determined by its subject and audience. Together, we will go through your r├ęsum├ę, motivation letter, and/or speech draft, and improve your interview/presentation performance.
