Barbara has been teaching German to Adults sind 1998 and since 2015 for City Lit: She says:' Changing my carreer from working in an office to teaching German has been the best decision for me. I can truly say that I love my job! Interacting with my students and to see them develop their language skills is very enjoyable to me and can fill me with satisfaction. I believe that learning another language is fun and I try to structure my lessons based on this motto. Teaching is a profession for me, in which I find that I myself can also learn; grow and get better in my work.'
