From the University of Tallinn, I acquired a Master’s degree in education in 2009. In my Master’s thesis, I explored the fear in learning and speaking of a foreign language. In 2003 I graduated from the University of Tartu in the specialty of the German language and literature. My minor was English language and literature. Both of these languages were required for working at the Estonian Business School in 2003-2013, where I taught German for both Estonian students and Finnish and Chinese students on the basis of English. I have been participating in further training in Estonia, Finland, Germany, and Austria. Before studying in Tartu, I worked and studied for one year in Germany. In addition to my job as a teacher, I am also a guide in Tallinn to German-speaking guests. In my spare time, I play volleyball and tennis.
In the teaching of German, a relaxed atmosphere, the development of self-expression and confidence in speech, an enthusiastic teacher, and an internally motivated learner are essential. The German language is wonderful!
