I introduce myself: My name is Anja, I come from the southernmost part of Germany, the Allgäu, and after graduating from high school in 1987 I studied Political Science and French in Munich (M.A.). Since I wanted to teach, I then passed my state examination as a teacher. After many moves with my family, I finally ended up in Berlin. I gave German courses at the VHS in Bavaria, have BAMF approval for integration courses and a diploma issued by the Goethe Institute for DaF / DaZ. Languages are my passion, so I have now also taken the CILS B2 exam in Italian.
