Our German Teachers

This was the 3rd Skype German service I had tried. The first two were online directories with German tutors, but the quality of the teachers was very low, and there was no actual staff to help me if I had problems with the teachers. Live Lingua [German] school is a much better option. I have had 2 tutors with them and both have been excellent, and I like knowing that there is a real person I can talk to take care of any problems I have with my classes. If you are like me and looking for a better option, Live Lingua is the right choice.
