Guten Tag. Ich heiße Anke Szczepanski. Ich komme aus Deutschland und wohne seit 15 Jahren in Wellington. Ich bin Deutschlehrerin von Beruf. In meiner Freizeit koche ich gern und ich gehe gern ins Kino. Und ich liebe Schokolade!
If you want to know exactly what the above means and want to learn how to say things like this yourself, enrol now in German - Introductory 1!
In addition to being a native speaker of German, Anke also has a Masters degree in Applied Linguistics from Victoria University and has been teaching German to adults for 18 years and also occasionally tutors ESOL.
She has taught German at WHS Community Education Centre on and off since 2010 and currently also teaches German classes at the Goethe-Institut. Anke goes to Germany on a regular basis to visit her family but also to stay up-to-date with current language and cultural developments. She's also a very keen baker!
In 2013, she lived in Berlin for 11 months and taught German to people from all over the world (sogar aus Neuseeland!)
