She taught several years in Japan and Thailand before arriving in Australia. Throughout the course you will learn how to place an order in a Viennese coffeehouse, buy a train ticket to Salzburg or ask for directions to Munich’s Oktoberfest! Brigitte will mainly speak German in class and you will soon be able to converse in easy German. Alles klar? Let Brigitte open the door for you and lead you on your journey. Bis dann!
