Learn languages with The Language Bee!

Hi, My name is Sonja, I am a qualified CELTA teacher and I want to help you learn English, Dutch or German!

Having taught lessons both online and in person, I have proven experience teaching both adults and children.

I am of Swiss and Dutch origin and I am fluent in German, Dutch, French and English. I also speak a little Afrikaans, Italian and Sign Language.

As I have a great passion for languages, I understand the challenges involved in learning them. In my lessons I teach techniques to facilitate word retention and try to keep learning as fun and as stimulating as possible.

I originally studied Hospitality Management in Switzerland and spent a lot of time working and studying in English-speaking countries such as South Africa, Australia and the Isle of Man, UK. 

My certifications include:

Travelling is an important part of my life and I specialise in getting fellow travellers ready for their journey in the English-speaking world.

I am looking forward to meeting you and teaching you English, Dutch or German online or face to face in Rüthi SG, Switzerland.

"The limits of my language mean the limits of my world."

Learn English with The Language Bee
Sonja is a very patient teacher who works really hard on her students, she does a lot of research to find the best way to learn a certain thing from a language. There are tones of fun printouts she gives and Halloween special lessons too! She is a great teacher because she evens out lessons full of grammar revision with a TV show that really helps pronunciation.

I have known Sonja for a period of 4 years, in the capacity of Private French and German Tutor to my 3 daughters. Sonja is an honest, corteous and reliable person, who has never given me any reason to doubt her integrity.
It is without hesitation that I would recommend Sonja as a professional language teacher.

Sonja makes learning fun and enjoyable. I learnt a lot in a short space of time and thanks to all the practice I had with Sonja, I feel much more confident when speaking to locals. She was always able to explain clearly any mistakes I made and added them to my homework so I didn't make them again!
