List of Workshops

Barbara G. says

Ute’s workshops are very professional and fast paced. She has a very indepth knowledge of the topics and shares the latest scientific findings. I’ve been at her workshops “Moving on, relocating and staying behind” and “Parenting the bilingual child”. I can warmly recommend both of them! 

Marco P. says

German is so difficult! I need it for my work but in big groups I didn’t feel that I made any progress. When I heard that Ute gives one-on-one lessons, I thought I give it a try. I need to pass an exam soon. She has different ways to teach which makes learning interesting even after a long workday. The grammar seems less complicated now, which means a lot!

(Marco passed his C1 exam in October 2015)

José D. L. says

We speak 2 languages in our family and didn’t know which school to choose for our children. Ute helped us consider all the options and make our very own family language plan. We now know how to help our children with all the languages and on how to respond when teachers, family etc. doubt our multilingual plan. –  Thank you Ute!
