When I arrived in Hamburg, I did not speak a single word of German. I felt very
isolated and dependent upon others to get around. It was very difficult to adapt
to my new life here and the task of learning German was extremely daunting.
My lessons with Astrid completely changed that.
I am now able to use German in any situation, and have adjusted into my new German
life. I feel extremely confident and comfortable here and I have Astrid's support and
teaching to thank for it. She is caring, organized, understanding and reliable,
and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to learn the language.
For eight months I have learned to speak German with Astrid Hoehne. She is always
professional, punctual, and above all, she cares that I am able to speak and live
German. I have no fear that when I go out and must speak German, I can do so,
and for that , I have Astrid Hoehne to thank.
I have taken lessons with Astrid for the past year. Prior to this I attended other
courses but was very nervous when it came to speaking German. With Astrid’s help
and excellent support, my confidence has improved and I find it much easier to
speak German in everyday situations. Her lessons are always well prepared and she
has a huge amount of knowledge concerning issues within Germany and worldwide.
She makes learning German enjoyable and for that I am very thankful!
Overall, she is a great teacher and I would highly recommend her!
I was excited to develop something with people from all around the world,
without being in a pre-decided frame.
