Whats App Englisch

Lerne Englisch mit mir, egal wo, egal wann.

Mit Spaß, mit Neugier, mit Spiel, mit Fokus, mit Ernst, mit Albernheit…
Alles darf sein, denn Sprache und Lernen ist lebendig, vielschichtig und individuell.

Du

Wer du bist, was du schon kannst und wo die Englischreise hingehen soll, spielt keine Rolle – von Urlaubskonversation bis Wirtschaftsenglisch bis Prüfungsvorbereitung (und alles dazwischen). Ob du nur spielen willst oder ein handfestes Ziel vor Augen hast, ich freue mich auf dich.

Wir

Wir nutzen WhatsApp oder Telegramm (auch Skype oder u.U. Facebook) und bei Bedarf Email.
Entsprechend deinen Wünschen und der Entwicklung unseres Sprachenlernens, können wir die technischen Möglichkeiten voll ausnutzen, also Schrift, Sprachaufnahmen, Bilder, Videos, das klassische Telefonat und Videotelefonat. Je nach Lust und Laune und geografischen Gegebenheiten ist auch ein Treffen von Angesicht zu Angesicht möglich.

Ich

Ich liebe die englische Sprache. Ich liebe wie sie fließt und singt und schwingt. Mit 16 las ich mein erstes englisches Buch. Mit 22 ging ich für sieben Monate nach Neuseeland und trainierte meinen Sprachapparat im Formen dieser anderen Laute, meine Ohren ans Aufnehmen ebendieser. Zwei Jahre später lernte ich einen US-Amerikaner kennen. Ich verliebte mich in ihn und weiter in das Englische, in Sprache.
Die Beziehung verging, Anderes blieb: Gewandtheit, Fluss und Freude am Englischen — in Schrift wie auch im Gesprochenen, das Eintauchen in eine andere Kultur, das Erkunden und Leben einer anderen Mentaliät, und – sehr wichtig – der Umgang mit technischen Geräten zur Kommunikation.

Und Heute? Heute begleitet mich die englische Sprache täglich, in Lied, Lesen, Schreiben, im Kontakt mit Freunden und beim Lehren.
Ich habe große Freude daran, das Englische mit anderen zu teilen — Gedichte zu rezitieren, Texte zu lesen, passende Lieder, Videos und Quellen zu finden, zu verändern, anzupassen.
Ich habe ein abgeschlossenes Anglistik- und Amerikanistikstudium und Erfahrung im Unterrichten aller Altersgruppen und Level. Wenn du mehr über meinen Hintergrund wissen möchtest, schaue hier.

Einen Unkostenbeitrag sprechen wir individuell ab. Je nach Mögen und Vermögen.

Ich freue mich auf dich!

Pinneberg, Quickborn und die dicke Berta

When I was in at the Rainbow in Poland I often walked around without aim, seeking what I find. So it happened that I walked into this big, beautiful and open tent where a few people were sitting in a circle, some making music. A girl sings a song and I am mesmerized. She has a beautiful voice – soft, gentle and melodic and sings her own song. She herself is beautiful – soft, gentle, humble and a bit shy. She is from the Netherlands and I realize and remember that this country and its people have had a special place in my heart.
It is there and then that I decide it is time to go to the Netherlands again.

So from Mecklenburg the arrow points west and I decide to have a stopover close to Hamburg. It is interesting to drive through the city, recognizing places and having memories come up.
An old friend of mine and my parents – Willi – lives on the outskirts in Pinneberg and we are visiting him. Willi and Marianne, his wife who died some years ago, used to be our neighbours in my parents garden place. Willi is an extraordinary person. He inspires me hugely and I often talk about him to many. He used to be an ingeneer for a big company now he simply makes the world better. Since his retirement he keeps himself busy with research and projects around renewable energy. And when I say projects and research, I mean it. He has worked with reknowned scientists at universites, developed a heating system for a kindergarden, patented a cooling box that works with solar energy, gives interviews, goes to important meetings… And on top of it all he knows his way around tax and is always, always willing to help. And he is always well dressed!
I spend a wonderful time with him, enjoying good food, receiving some help with official things and having my mind blown once more by the things he has to say about physics, politics, society and life. Thank you, dear friend!

From there the journey goes on to Quickborn.
In Rostock I stumbled upon Julia and her therapeutical work with animals. I had an impuls – her work, her pictures really spoke to me and I contacted her. We had a brief talk about Raki and agreed that we would meet soon. Raki had lived several months on a short leach in the middle of nowhere, all by himself at a young age. Of course that had left some trauma. We had come a long way. We both had learned a lot. In Raki I found my master, reaching limits and redefining boundaries, learning more and more. Along the way I had found people other teachers that gave imput. Now it was time for a moment of being, of being held, of connecting. I instantly felt a connection to Julia before I even met her and she welcomed us to her family of horses and dogs, to her stable and to her home. After an afternoon and evening of great food and even better talks Raki and me spend the night in the Beast. After a deliscious breakfast Julia treats Raki with essential oils and cranio-sacral therapy. Raki isn’t completely sure what’s going on but he can’t help but relax and release under Julia’s hands. It reaches me too and some tears roll down my cheaks.
Together me and Julia pick up some horse poop under a beautiful fall sun and then we say goodbye – until next time. Thank you!

After a bit more time in nature Raki and me take off again.

We spend the night at the Dicke Berta – a little Lighthouse where the Elbe enters the Northsea.
Another last night in Germany, another episode ending, another one beginning; contemplating, reflecting, looking back.
Those moments are always special – filled with excitement, curiousity, gratitude, feeling of closure.

In the next morning we say goodbye to Germany with a walk through the Cuxhavener Küstenheide and head West, onto the Netherlands, onto new adventures.

Those will be told next year.

Flessenow

Beautiful Flessenow is an oasis – grandparents that provide wonderful and loving company and make sure we are always well fed, the mesmerizing lake and gorgeous nature around and a boat house with a cozy berth. A place to recharge, spent time with family and friends and also to learn – loose fear of wooden jetties and boats (that goes for Raki, I’m quite good with them).

Flessenow is a place we have visited a few times this year.
The last time was accompanied by a beautiful summery fall, working on The Beast (my car) and meeting the family before take off and continueing on our journey.

Coastal vibes, old city love in Rostock and nature slow down in Tessenow

After some relaxing days on Schwerin’s lake in Tessenow it was time for some city adventures again. Once more dear Bauke was welcoming us. I decided to take it slow and visit the coast on the way. The weather was adventurous. Somehow I ended up on this dead end road at a place that seemed very familiar. After having a look around there were no doubts – I ended up on the campground where my ex boyfriend’s aunt and uncle have (or had) a caravan. Me and my Ex stayed there for a week, something like 15 years ago. Amazing that I just stumbled upon the place and quite interesting to visit memories from a time that seems to be another life. I remember how I had some kind of meltdown there, getting worked up about being too fat – how far I have come, how different life is now, how fluent we and our personalities are.
I remember the walking path along the shoreline and we walk through hail and puddles and enjoy beautful views.
Afterwards we continue East along the coast. Next stop – Rerik for a fish roll, a play along the beach and watching clouds, rain and rainbows from my cozy passenger seat.

We spent two weeks in my old home and love Rostock, meeting old and new friends – two-legged and four-legged, eating good food … I visit a fleamarket and fill up my library with books about philosophy and psychology. I say goodbye to the Buddhilde, a shared multi family home with its own treehouse. Unfortunately it will be sold.
Once more we are staying with my dear friend Bauke and enjoy many wonderful moments with him.

After those two weeks full of impressions we crave slowness, space and nature and make our way once more to Tessenow. We get to slow down and spend a few days in this beautiful place accompanied by some breath-taking late summer sunsets. There is always something new to discover here. This time it is a toilet.
It’s interesting how your perspective shifts when you live a simpler life. How a toilet (without a door) can fill you with so much joy and excitement. How a toilet can get you lost in its creation.
This piece of art was created by Mike-Georg. He wanted to make something smaller and less “fancy” and he wanted to spent less time but . . . it just happened. It might just be the most beautiful compost toilet I have ever seen.

more German late summers

Johanna was so awesome to let us stay in her appartment while she was on holidays. We enjoyed some quiet and play time.

 

 

 

Together with Johanna and Filou we enjoyed a few more days in Potsdam and Johanna and me went to the concert of the magnificient Rising Appalachia, where we found space of colour and peace and appreciation and wonderful music.

DCIM100GOPROGOPR0793.JPG

From Potsdam Johanna, me and Raki and Filou head back north. We have a look at the Demeter Farm and living community in Medewege and spend the night with my Granddad and his partner, Röschen in their garden and boat house in Flessenow.

After this short stop we go East and spend time of relaxation and productivity in Weitenhagen in Johannas parents place, accompanied by wonderful food and a trip to the beach.

Afterwards Johanna and me and Raki and Filou say goodbye again – Johanna going back to Potsdam and me spending a few more days in Flessenow with my Granddad and Röschen before I go to my old love Rostock.

 

 

late Summers in Germany

After the Ideenwiese we continued enjoying the late summer in Germany, wandering aimlessly and with aim – visiting friends, places, getting things done . . .

Our first destination was only a few kilometres further from the Ideenwiese. A place that has captured my heart and become really dear to me – Woland.
Woland is this Oasis of space and peace, a place with no street lights and only five neighbours. We visit our friends there – Martina and Inga with their animal family on their farm. Whenever I go there I realise again how much I enjoy living in nature and among the animals – having random cuddles, watching the horses in my pyjamas, seeing the milky way and hearing the beings of the night.

With our good friend Bauke in the passenger seat the journey goes south to Ketzin where we celebrate Johanna’s birthday.

We enjoy a wonderful slow day after the celebration, eating, chilling, lying in the sun. In the afternoon Bauke, me and Raki head back north. We drop Bauke off at the main station and arrive in my home town.

Ideenwiese once more

Das Schaf blökt wieder!

I found the Ideenwiese – a little festival based on participation and family – last year just two weeks before the event and I fell in love instantly (before I even got there). I arrived early to help setting everything up and stayed longer. I made wonderful new friends and knew I would come back.

So here we were in 2018 – Ideenwiese once more. I arrived some days early and instanly was home, in the lap of family. What followed was a special time with many, many beautiful moments and even more beautiful people. Moments of endlessness and absoluteness. Lying in the sun with Raki, while listening to people making awesome music, amidst dancing people and playing children; gliding into the cooling waters of the lake after falling out of the oven that my car had become in the morning sun; falling asleep with feet warmed by the fire; watching the perseides pass by in the endless night sky; eating alcoholic berries out of a traffic cone; late night pasta feasts; creating and teaching and many many many sandwich toaster sandwiches.
I’m so thankful to have found this place and its people. I can’t wait to get more involved and share more of this beauty.

The camera work was done by many great people so I immersed myself in the experience and only have few impressions this year.
