I have had german lessons with Surbhi for nearly 2 years now, and wholeheartedly recommend her! When we started classes my knowledge of german was very muddled - I had done various courses now and again over the years, as well as picking up spoken language from german relations. We have basically followed Goethe Institut courses, but she has added so much more value from our conversations and grammar sessions. She has very much tailored her lessons to suit my needs and aptitudes (I have a terrible memory!). She gives the best, clearest explanations of german grammar I have ever come across, and is not only patient but also full of fun. Lessons are never boring. We used to have lessons face-to-face and as I am not very IT proficient I was resistant to moving online. However, since lock-down we have carried on with weekly Google-Classroom lessons, and they are brilliant. The technology is really straight-forward from my point of view - there is little to do at my end, except do as I'm told, accept invitations and click on links. Our lap top screens are split so that we can see each other on one half of the screen, whilst working on a "blackboard" on the other side. She can play audio material too, and share exercises with me which I complete online and she then looks at online. It's all so easy. And at the end of each lesson I can print off our work if I want to keep a hard copy as well. A final thought: my husband is half-german and bilingual and is also really impressed by what and how Surbhi teaches me.
