German language 121 tuition and courses, Stockport, Manchester, Liverpool, Cheshire

Introduction
My name’s Aidan and I help people to learn German at all levels.

In language teaching and in life, I do things differently! – Ich mache es anders!

I think of myself as a coach rather than just a tutor. Coach is the word they use in Germany for what I do:

  • One-to-one tuition in German language
  • GCSE and A level German private tuition
  • Beginner and intermediate evening classes in German
  • General and business German in-company training

In addition to this, I produce creative media to supplement my coaching:

  • YouTube videos on aspects of German grammar and vocabulary
  • E-books on German language and language learning in general
  • My language and culture blog focusing on German words and phrases.
  • Online courses on grammar and vocabulary are currently in development.

Please note, I like to embed my English with useful German words and phrases – nützliche Wörter und Phrasen auf Deutsch so you can easily learn new vocabulary as you read.

Experience, enthusiasm and commitment

I’m one of the most experienced and enthusiastic German language tutors around and I have helped countless adults, young and not so young, to learn and improve in in this amazing language.

I always travel to the home or office of the student, usually on public transport or by e-bike – mit dem Pedelec

I am deeply committed to helping people to learn German. In today’s fragmented world, language learning – Sprachlernen – is more important than ever. People need to escape from what I call the ‘English monolingual ghetto’.

Reasons to learn German

Learning any language is good, but today there are many reasons why more and more people need to learn German. I’m here to help you! – Ich bin da, um euch zu helfen!

My aim is not just to offer fun and interactive lessons but also to create a framework to help people learn by offering a number of extraszusätzliche Diensleistungen!

Extra services to help you learn German more quickly and more effectively

As well as teaching face-to-face I provide a range of extras.

Lesson notes on USB or via e-mail

I create lesson notes for every tuition session or class, which you can copy to a USB drive or I can e-mail them to you.

Audio notes

I can also record audio notes for every lesson, so you can hear pronunciations and spoken exercises. I can record these on your mobile phone auf dein Handy – or record them myself and e-mail them to you.

Personalised exercises via learning app

I can provide personalised exercises via a learning app. It’s a new and different way to learn and practice German.

Study reminders

Some students ask me for study reminders, which I can send out via e-mail between lessons. They can include short exercises based on recent work.

Resources

I have extra German language resources including videos, e-books and study cards of my own, as well as a bank of materials from other sources.

‘Chat Fluently’ online course

I’m developing my unique ‘Chat Fluently in German’ course, and I am already using parts of it with my students.

More online courses

More online courses in German language are in planning, and existing students will have free access to them as I complete them.

About Aidan O’Rourke – German tuition Stockport Manchester Liverpool

I’m Aidan – linguist, writer, content creator, photographer, video maker.

I studied German and French at Trinity College Dublin and lived in Berlin vor der Wende – before the fall of the Berlin wall -. I’ve visited Germany regularly ever since.

I’ve taught German and English in the UK and other countries. I am based in north west England and regularly travel to Germany.

Using my experience as a photographer, I run photographic tours in Liverpool and Manchester for local people and people from abroad, including Deutschsprachige Besucher German-speaking visitors.

To me there is nothing more wonderful than being able to speak and understand German to a very high level and I want to help and inspire others to do the same.

I do things differently! I have strong views on language learning. I try to take a special interest in every student.

I’m English/British by upbringing, Irish by background, proudly pro-European and lean towards Germany and the German-speaking countries through my knowledge of the language.
