Are online TEFL courses authentic

Online courses for German as a foreign language, Heidelberg (online lessons via webcam) - over 10 years of experience as a German teacher


I design the lessons according to the wishes / needs of my course participants. I prefer to use authentic materials and combine them with didactic materials that are appropriate to the level and interests of the respective learner. Classes take the form of online meetings. The course participant also receives extra materials so that he / she can further expand their language skills outside of the online class.


Since 2007 I have been leading German courses for beginners through to advanced levels. At the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina I studied German to become a teacher and at the Universidade Federal do Paraná and at the Herder Institute in Leipzig I completed my master's degree with a focus on German as a foreign language. I am currently studying for a master’s degree in conference interpreting at the University of Heidelberg. In Brazil I was able to gain a lot of professional experience, both in school and in the university area. I worked as a lecturer at the Universidade Federal do Paraná for two years. I also ran German courses at the Goethe Institute Curitiba and worked as a primary school teacher for German and specialist knowledge at the German School in Curitiba.
