P.S. This is what one client says about her lessons:

“Nicole really helped me get back on track with my German studies after many years of dabbling here and there. As soon as I made the decision to get more serious about my studies, I contacted Nicole. She quickly helped me determine my starting point, and to define a structure that would speed up my learning process. She was flexible in allowing me to work at my own pace (I can get obsessive if I really get into something!), and as a teacher she is extremely attentive, patient, warm, encouraging and kind. In addition to video lessons with Nicole, I also benefited tremendously from all of the materials she makes available to all of her students on http://GermanWithNicole.com. Since your first teacher in a new language is perhaps the most important, I give Nicole my highest recommendation for impassioned German enthusiasts and learners of all levels.”
