As part of my teaching experience, I tutored and taught German as a foreign language at the Swiss language school inlingua, situated at the Krefeld branch Germany, where I was also responsible for test and exam preparation, and was registered as a qualified TestDaF (Test Deutsch als Fremdsprache) examiner.

By booking your lesson, you will gain the necessary skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking, only then can you be sure you’ve made a worthwhile investment. Relevant feedbacks will be provided on a regular basis, so you can see your progress and learning success. 

However, my students’ enjoyment has priority right from the start.

Apart from the very beginners, I always consider the language level as well as the required learning content, because in my experience they positively lead my students to their training success more efficiently and definitely more motivated!

Whether you choose the traditional one-to-one tuition, or your personal circumstances require distant learning via Skype, or a mix of both would suit your life style; I can cater for all your needs and wishes.


My suggestion to pass my grading test helps students find the right course level, especially for advanced learners. If your time schedule leaves little scope, why not choosing from my selection of Instant Grading Tests for all levels? You order the form for basic (A1-A2), independent (B1-B2) or excellent (C1-C2) use of the German language via email and fill in the answers directly. It will take 13 minutes and insures you make a worthwhile investment.

The name was created by one of my former colleagues who realised the bilingual potential of my surname Hammond. The literal translation of "Ham" is "Schinken" in German, and "Mond" means "Moon" in English, and from then on my nickname SchinkenMoon developed into my brand name.

This anecdote shows in a humerous way that the ability to speak a foreign language ensures better understanding and agreement, particularly in a multinational environment. Global communication is essential in business, but even more rewarding and enriching in social life. 

I am a native German speaker working 17 years as a professional German language trainer and tutor at all levels, grades and ages. As a native German fluent in English, I later expanded my portfolio by working as a translator, proofreader and consecutive/ simultaneous interpreter.
