Meet Shweta Z, the accidental German Trainer who made it big - UrbanPro

Shweta started teaching German accidentally after completing a German language course. Though passionate about learning German, she never thought she would be working as a German Trainer professionally. It all started when she got a student through an acquaintance and the student scored 80% in A1 exam. Success of her first German language student inspired her to take up German language classes, spreading the knowledge and love for the German language to many. During her 2 years of teaching experience, she had helped many students, professionals and tourists learn the German language. And she is still continuing with her efforts to support new German Language learner.

Here is an excerpt of the interview:

Q1. Tell us your journey as a German Trainer?

Ans. A few years back, I learned the German language as a hobby, without any intention of becoming a trainer as I was a qualified Physiotherapist and had a good job in hand. I started learning German language because it was my passion. Eventually, I got a student through an acquaintance who wanted to learn A1 level for visa application. That time I was not sure about teaching because I was inexperienced, but I knew that I can do it. Fortunately, the student passed A1 exam scoring 80%, which was a fantastic thing for an inexperienced trainer like me. That’s how my journey started as a German Trainer and over the years I kept getting assignments from various institutes, corporates and students through references. Since then I have never looked back.

Q2. What do you think makes a great German Trainer?

Ans. I think my German grammar is crystal clear. Additionally, I have knowledge about German culture, customs & rituals, do’s & dont’s in Germany, and knowledge about German embassy like visa document requirements which makes me a great teacher. I think having these kind of knowledge is extremely important apart from just the language.

Q3. How you came across UrbanPro?

Ans. I came across UrbanPro on Internet.

Q6. One advice that you would like to give to new Pros on UrbanPro?

Ans. My advice is to be honest and good at their work. Teaching cannot be a business only. Quality brings more work.
