I'm Charlotte.
My mission is to help learners of German from their first sentences to fluency, so that they can successfully live, work, and make friends in Germany.

I'm a German native speaker, certified language teacher and mother of 4 kids, and I use my insider knowledge to give you a solid base for your life in Germany.

By now, I’ve helped more than 230.000 Students from all over the world in private lessons, group courses, on Instagram, on YouTube, and my popular "Uplevel Your German" podcast to learn or improve their German.

Whatever your goal is, I’m here to help you reach it:
