Grüezi, ich heiße Luzi.
Born in Switzerland. Studied economics and worked for different international hotel chains in marketing and sales. Wanted to see more of the world and eventually ended up in Taiwan as a German language teacher.
Love to play squash, surfing, bbq and drink beer with friends. And most of all: Help happy students achieve their goals.
Hallo, ich heiße Johannes.
Born in Germany. Started studying Asian Languages and Culture at the University of Bonn. Graduated during my exchange year in Taiwan and stayed there to teach German in a European language school from 2011 till now.
I like sports a lot, especially surfing. It feels weird when I haven't seen the ocean for more than 10 days. When teaching it makes me happy to see my students making progress and successfully pass their exams.
Some years ago both of us landed somehow in Taiwan where we started to work as German DaF teachers at the same language school... and still do so. At some point we planned to open our own school. Due to lack of experience, miscalculation AND bad luck our first enterprise together was quickly finished shortly before our opening day.
A couple of years later we started to make YouTube videos in order to reach more students. Started with Instagram and other social medias. Which one do you know us from? 😏
Over 100 videos later and lots of positive feedback from German learners all over the world we decided to go a bit further and start our first own online German language school. And here you are! Thanks for being a part of our story!
