About me

I am a native German speaker with more than twenty years experience of teaching German at various Universities in London. I was very happy to join the language team at the LSE in 2007 as I have a keen interest in social and political sciences. After my M.A. in Performing Arts (Stuttgart), I trained as a German teacher at Kingston University in London and received my M.A. in Online and Distance Education from the Open University. As well as teaching German, I also like studying other languages which gives me a very good understanding of the linguistic background of my students.  My third M.A. was in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from London University.  I currently teach online and face-to-face German courses in London and Oxford.

About the Language Centre

The Language Centre here at the London School of Economics reflects the specialist nature of the School itself, namely, a world class institution where the quality of teaching and research is paramount.

LSE is not just a multi-national university but also a multi-lingual one.

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, undergraduate degree courses and a range of language options that you can take outside of your main degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.

The Language Centre is part of LSE’s Academic and Professional Development Division.
