Ich empfehle sie jedem, der Deutsch auf eine solide, effiziente und effektive Weise lernen möchte. Wenn Sie auf der Suche nach einer großartigen Lehrerin sind, um Ihre ersten Schritte in der faszinierenden und interessanten Sprache Deutsch zu machen, ist Frau Kerstin Quandt der Profi, den Sie suchen. Sie wird Sie auf einfache, aber tiefgründige Weise unterrichten, mit Spaß, aber ernsthaft, ausgewogen und aufmerksam auf Ihre Bedürfnisse eingehend. Frau Quandt schafft die perfekte Atmosphäre zum Lernen. Sie versteht es, Ihnen zuzuhören und Sie zu motivieren. Sie ist sehr geduldig und respektiert Ihr persönliches Lerntempo, indem sie Ihre kleinen Schritte verstärkt und sie in große Schritte verwandelt. Zögern Sie nicht! Das Roth Sprachatelier ist eine echte Sprachlerngemeinschaft, die Ihnen die deutsche Sprache auf wunderbare Weise näher bringen wird.

I appreciate that they have possibility to record lessons if you can't participate certain days. The teacher was super (Beatrice), she was very patient to explain details and as many times as you need. I want to come back only with the same teacher)). The books are modern with up-to-date vocabulary. And there is a possibility to bring a child to childcare nearby. I took B1 course and then preparation for B1 exam for Goethe Certificate, i successfully did it with good points. Just the course was not enough, but the preparation course was very good, giving me even higher level of the language then after the main course. I recommend it very much as well.
