Although I am a wanderer by nature, born and educated in Britain – all over Britain – I’ve been teaching in Berlin for over twenty-five years and retired for three. Without moving from the spot where I now live, near Krumme Lanke, the idea slowly grew that it would be a good idea to set up groups with people of my own age who would like to do with me what I can do best: teach/learn English.

Thus were the English for Over-Sixties born.

I have had some groups in the Steglitz library and some in the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt congregation beside Onkel-Toms-Hütte U-Bahnhof, at Onkel-Tom-Straße 80.  Groups three and four meet there.

SInce October 10th 2017 there has been a course in the afternoons at 12.30 for lower intermediate under the aegis of the Mittelhof in the KIEZladen.

The READING GROUP is also  in the KIEZladen in the Ladenstraße and meets on the third Monday in the month at 6 pm throughout 2018 and onwards!

You can find out what all these groups are doing by clicking in the right place! I have to admit that the photo of me is now a good five years old but it gives you an idea of what I looked like!
