More about Christine
Hi, I’m Christine, I’m German and a language teacher for several languages (mostly Italian). Besides this, I run the blog “Erfolgreiches Sprachenlernen”, work as a freelancer for two companies, and have a real passion for everything related to languages, learning techniques and time management. I speak German, English, French, Italian and Spanish, and I can translate Latin texts. I have also begun to learn Dutch and Portuguese, but having so many other projects I had to stop learning on a regular basis. Last year, I published my first book “Sprachen lernen – Tolle Tipps und Tricks”. I’m planning to start an Italian blog, but at the moment I’m struggling a bit with technological problems.
The link to the University of Bochum, which I mentioned in my interview, is inactive at the moment (it shows “under construction”).
The Italki website can be found here.
If you speak German, you might also like Christine’s article about language tandems.
I have also written an English article on this subject.
