Meet the language teaching team

A language school is brought to life by its teachers. At speakeasy Berlin it's certainly the language teaching team who are responsible for delivering lessons by the speakeasy method – meaning practical, interactive, learning, focused on the individual needs of the students. And we like to think the language teaching team all embody the speakeasy spirit, just like the rest of the team at speakeasy – this means being warm, open-minded and fun.

The language teaching team creates the exciting interactive learning environment that we believe gets the best results. It's their jobs to make sure all students get the most they can from their classes – and have a good time doing so!

Our teachers themselves come from different backgrounds and have extensive experience teaching adults from around the world. Most of the language teaching team have taught at speakeasy for a long time, so they really are vital to what makes the school just what it is.

The teachers introduce themselves

Teacher Team - Nicola


It has always been crucially important in my life to work and deal with German language. After my studies of German Literature, Art and Media Science, I worked as a Dramaturg for several years in different theatres around Germany, such as Berlin and Saarbrücken. At speakeasy, I use my communication skills and enthusiasm for language to prepare you for the big stage we call ‘Berlin’. I look forward to getting to know you!

Teacher Team - Andreas


I studied German literature, politics and philosophy in Munich and Berlin. Since 2004 it has been my great pleasure to teach German as a foreign language. After working in India for 12 years, I returned to Berlin in April 2019. I really enjoy rediscovering this great city after all this time, even though I really do miss the delicious food and warm climate in India. Most of all, I enjoy teaching German as a foreign language to interesting people from all over the world.

Hi! My name is Mikhail. I've been living in the great city of Berlin for many years and, among other things, I studied linguistics here - a subject that I always knew would qualify me for my dream job - teaching German as a foreign language. And my personal career dream has now come true at speakeasy Berlin! I look forward to getting to know you in one or the other course and to sharing my enthusiasm for the diversity of the German language with you!

Teacher Team - Stephany


Hi, I am Stephy and I have been teaching German as a foreign language for 7 years, including two years working in Bolivia. I studied German as a foreign and second language for my bachelor's degree in Jena and linguistics for my master's degree in Cologne. As a foreigner in Germany and a language lover, I have always wanted to teach the language to other foreigners so that they can find and enjoy their journey and goals in Germany as much as I have.
