Chris YLM will work out the "5 days Miniworkshop" together, with you personally helping to shape the challenge!
The Online German Course will be tailored to the course participants.

The Miniworkshop with Chris YLM takes place on Zoom either in the mornings or afternoons. The time until the next live online course is also learned because shortly after the first course Chris YLM will provide you with an accessible course without a teacher.
So you have 2 courses per day, but you can take as much time as you like in the course provided without a teacher. You are also welcome to work through the lessons several times to deepen what you have learned.

Meet Chris.

My name is Christine-Virginia Franken but please call me Chris.
I`ve been teaching German for more than 18 years. I really love teaching and seeing how my students progress over time. My mother is German and my father is American so I grew up bilingual.
After we moved to Germany I experienced how strenuous it can be using the correct grammar in German.

My students love me because I provide a convenient and authentic experience that leads to fluency.


Many many thanks!
We could win
Chris YLM as a German teacher for our employees. Three employees of our company with different native languages (Romanian, Hungarian) participated in the German language course by Chris YLM from October 2018 to May 2019 The previous knowledge was very different.
Chris YLM motivated our employees to learn and speak. She reached it overcomes the initial skepticism of the staff, so everyone very much participated in the course.
We can only thank
Chris YLM and wish her many more „students“. Your Teaching method has proven itself with our employees.
Our employees are in constant contact with us and our customers.
Language skills are essential. We are very satisfied with that course of learning.

Press Release & Style

For over two years, I perfected my Business German with Chris YLM and can fully recommend both her didactic competence and her teaching concept: She always works with the most up-to-date media, proposes the most diverse topics from the world of work and the area of geography, and prepares the lessons extremely lively and entertaining. As a bilingual from the United States but grew up in Germany, she can also always answer questions about culture and colloquial language.

Chris YLM gave our practice employees intensive individual tuition in „German“. The courses were held individually online or in face-to-face classes.
Here, some of our employees from other European countries received intensive German lessons. The classes were very successful. An employee who started with level A1 in German reached a B1 level in a few months and could be successfully used at the reception and even on the phone. The psychological work performed by
Chris YLM was also convincing, which led to the employee losing his fear of speaking and increasingly opening up.
Another employee who showed weakness in writing improved grammatically significantly.
Since we have a practice with international patients, our receptionist also completed courses with
Chris YLM.
Chris YLM responded to our special requests and taught the employees very successfully in Business German (e.g. appointments, telephoning, small talk …). She also impressively observed the different starting levels of our employees and responded to them individually.
All courses were always to our complete satisfaction and all of our employees were always enthusiastic about the courses and accordingly highly motivated and successful in learning. We would like to thank you very much for the excellent language courses!
