FAQ

Finding the right teacher

The first step with milengua is to arrange a free demo lesson. Please fill in the short form we provide. Based on your data, we will connect you with the most appropriate teacher. We will select the tutor according to your availability (e.g. Tuesdays, 7:00 am) as well as according to your individual wishes (e.g. business language course) and previous knowledge (e.g.Spanish mother tongue). This teacher is presented to you for the demo lesson and if you are satisfied, (s)he will then become your nominated course tutor. If you think it’s necessary, you can also change the tutor at any time. Remember, however, that you will learn best in a long-term personal relationship with a teacher.

How can I start with milengua?

We offer each student a tailor-made language course according to her/his individual wishes and goals. This is why we provide you, based on your profile, with the most suitable tutor, whom you can meet and test in a 30-minute free demo lesson. Of course, your new tutor will also be happy to advise you on all detailed questions and will create your own personal course plan on the basis of the information from the demo lesson.

How does the demo lesson work?

The demo lesson takes place on Skype or Google Hangouts on your chosen date.
You will get to know your language tutor in a relaxed meeting online
and explain to her or him in detail your goals and wishes for the language course.
He or she will then present you with a demo of the online lesson and advise you on all relevant questions (e.g. technique, methodology, tips for self-study).
On request, she or he can also create an individual course plan.

Do I have to make a booking for the free demo lesson?

No. For a free demo lesson, all you have to do is fill in the form here.
We will then contact you in order to find the most appropriate tutor
and arrange the demo lesson.

Do I receive a certificate after my course?

milengua is giving out individual certificates on demand. These certificates include the type of course, the number of lessons as well as the language level in accordance with the CEFR (A1-C2). 
Our certificates have been accepted by a series of different institutions (foreign offices, employers, academies, …) and we always ask each student to give us the specific purpose of his/her certificate so we can individualize it accordingly.

What languages does milengua offer

Our language school is specialized in German as a foreign language, but also offers courses for plenty of other foreign languages. On our booking page, you can find the offers of our core team. For other foreign languages, we can also help you with online teachers who will receive methodology training to comply with our high milengua standards.

What’s a class session like?

“Standard” classes are 45 minutes each and fairly similar to traditional face-to-face lessons: Working with CEFR appropriate materials in each lesson your teacher will introduce a new topic, related vocabulary and in-bedded grammar. Students get familiar with the new content, will do exercises and above all will apply the language. Homework will make sure the content will be consolidate and revision at the start of each lesson helps to establish new structures. Homework will be corrected by the teacher outside the lesson so that you only spend time on it during a class in case you have any further questions. ​ Also, we have classes that focus more on daily or work related conversations, on reading articles, books etc. as well as preparation for internationally accredited language exams or naturalization. You can change your learning goals anytime simply by letting your tutor know.
