My name is Mina Hanzen. I was born in Germany, to a German father and a Greek mother. I graduated from a Greek school and the Goethe Institute in both the language and Department of Translation Studies. I have already been teaching German for 25 years.
What I love about my job is, above all, communicating with children. Being able to impart knowledge to them, but also playing your own part in them becoming good people, as well as professionals, is the most important thing. Every person has their own character and that’s why I always try to get what they need from everyone, so that I can make them reach the desired result, learn, and, at the same time, love the language.
It is known that German is considered a difficult language by many, but it is not. If you have a way of making it easy, then it’s not hard. I try to find ways and constantly improve, so that I make studying and learning easy for them. Times are changing and we can nowadays use the new teaching-related media available to us, which the students like and make the lesson more enjoyable. That’s why I use them.
