Introduction: 2 best buds offering relocation services (US->DE) and teaching German leveraging pop culture. As our technical support and reference material we employ Jamie Rankin’s “Wiederholen und Anwenden : Handbuch zur deutschen Grammatik“. Peaked your interest? Kevin will set the stage for who we are at our core with his introduction. One could be forgiven for not having guessed at my Sicilian ancestry. First of all, there’s the name. But then there’s the fact that I don’t speak a lick of Italian. My great grandfather’s need to rapidly assimilate his family to a new culture meant that I grew up in a monolingual, American household with no idea what I was even missing out on. I never did learn to speak Italian (yet!), but I’ve been fortunate enough to experience how the world opens up to you when you speak more than one language. At first, the foreign language requirement at my university was just that — a requirement. Luckily, my good buddy Nick, who’s a bit older and wiser than I am, had already begun enthusiastically learning German and had inspired me to do the same. Anyone who ever has the pleasure of meeting Nick quickly realizes what a force of nature he is. His enthusiasm and energy are infectious and his novel approach to language learning had me gladly earning A’s in my German classes as my eyes were opened up to a whole new culture. While figuring out where to continue my education after my bachelor’s degree, I realized that studying abroad could be a great opportunity to take my language and cultural learning experiences to another level. I decided to save up and move to Germany. The journey that Nick and I began together watching German cartoons in a studio apartment at The Ohio State University has turned into an adventure I never imagined. I moved to Cologne, Germany in 2012, earning a PhD in theoretical physics at the University of Cologne, making friends from all over the world and navigating the bureaucracy of being a foreigner in a country famous for its bureaucracy. I’ve since moved down the River Rhine to the former German capital of Bonn where I work as a data scientist for the Deutsche Post. Despite the physical distance, Nick and I have stayed close all these years and are excited to work together to bring our enthusiasm for the German language and culture to you in new and exciting ways.” -D.R.K.O Nick G CPA(inactive): Assessment - Advanced Dr. Kevin O : Advanced - Professional

This one of a kind operation is run by 2 childhood friends with a passion for people. Nick studied language and culture in Dresden before graduating OSU with an Accounting degree. Kevin lives in Köln and just received his doctorate in Physics from the University of Köln. The price is cheap at the moment as they build a client base. You can’t beat it! They are developing new and innovative strategies for language instruction that will be integrated into an App they are designing. Collaboration is welcomed as they always listen to my ideas. Working with them I feel like I am part of something bigger. If you are tired of the same old approach to learning a new language Meister Master is it!
