My first Udemy course is live now:  MASTER your GERMAN.


Dear all, dear students and teachers of German,

I have been working on my first UDEMY course and written the Curriculum overview plus the first INTRODUCTION and the first few MODULES.

Am pretty excited about this new platform where everybody can teach anything once she / he feels confident enough.

This includes IT and computer usage, of course, as we have been training it now for 15 or more years (sometimes hands on and together here in Australia.

I am still connected with many of my ex – students and teachers colleagues and would like to express my thanks / chapeau for the feedback I have received while an active coach and teacher.

Now having retired I know I can do whatever I like, however the PASSION of teaching will be with me until I’m gone (I guess).

Once a teacher – always a teacher.

This could have been said by my father JDB, a Primary and Secondary Teacher in Northern Germany all through his life, who died at the age of 75. I dedicate this project to him and his attitudes and style of teaching.

His students and soul mates used to call him “Johnny B Good” as his motto was: 

– Never give up & 

– No one will be left behind.

Pretty modern for his time…   

Well, to cut a long story short: I will try to be as good as he was.

And so this project being your coach in the course “Master your German.”

I would like to invite everybody who does not feel confident enough with his / her German in front of senior classes and everybody who loves the German language and would like to improve, id est MASTER the target language.

I believe in adult learning concepts that have been worked out in Australia and elsewhere and are based on

– a high level of self-motivation

– the desire to achieve as much as possible in limited time

– the wish to communicate with other learners / students because ONE teacher in ONE school always has the need to exchange views and ideas plus successful projects with people who have the same workload on their shoulders.

So feel free to visit this BLOG from time to time and keep in touch via Facebook or directly with me, your coach.

The UDEMY course / platform will be open once my version is finished and polished AND APPROVED.

With kind regards from Burleigh Waters
