¡ Die dunkle Jahreszeit kann

aufs Gemüt schlagen. Dieses

Jahr wird es besonders hart.

Der Impfstoff ist schon

bestellt, aber es kann Monate

dauern, bis wir uns wieder frei

bewegen.

¡ Sie können aber sofort für

Aufmunterung sorgen. Sie

können virtuell unter

Menschen gehen und sich

austauschen. Sie können etwas

lernen, zum Beispiel über

Kunst oder Musik. Sie können

endlich Ihre Geschichte

aufschrieben oder Zeichnen

lernen und Sie können singen.

¡ Blättern Sie weiter und

entdecken Sie meine

Lockdown-Angebote Januar

bis März. Sie sind ein

bescheidener aber vom Herzen

kommender Beitrag zum

zusammen Durchhalten.

¡ The dark winter months can be

challenging. This year will be

particularly hard for many of us.

The vaccine is on its way, but it will

still be weeks or months before we

can safely venture outside.

¡ But you can do something to cheer

yourself up right now. You can

meet people and exchange ideas

and stories online. You can relax,

and you can learn stuff, for

instance about art or classical

music. Or what about finally

writing down the story of your life

or learning to draw? And you can

sing.

¡ Here are my lockdown offerings

for January to March. They are a

modest but heartfelt contribution

to getting through this together.

Kreativ durch den Lockdown

Isaac Newton soll seine Theorie der

Schwerkraft formuliert haben, und Shakespeare

schrieb King Lear, als sie während der Pest in

Quarantäne war. Ich kann nicht versprechen,

dass diese Online-Kurse Sie zu einem Genie

machen werden, aber sie werden Ihnen helfen,

im Lockdown Ihre Kreativität zu entwickeln

und widerstandsfähiger zu werden, was auch

immer 2021 bringen mag.

Die Kurse sind offen für alle, die Englisch als

Erst- oder Zweitsprache sprechen und

entdecken wollen, wie kreativ sie sind.

Ich habe die Gebühren so niedrig wie möglich

gehalten, zwischen 13 und 15 Euro pro Woche,

und Sie entscheiden, wie viel Sie zahlen wollen

oder können. Details finden Sie auf Seite

14. Rufen Sie mich an, wenn Sie überhaupt

Fragen zu den Kursen und Konditionen oder zu

mir haben. Meine Telefonnummer lautet 0160

93164867.

Course no. 1 The soundtrack

of our lives – talking about

our favourite songs

Does a melody ever bring a tear to your eyes? Do

songs sometimes give you the chills? Have you ever

felt lifted up by a piece of music when you were

down? The answer to these questions is probably yes.

Music can bring about emotional and even physical

responses in all of us. It can relax us. It can take us

back in time. It can impact us in more ways than we

are aware of.

8

In this class we’ll examine music that has formed the

soundtrack to our lives. We’ll listen to our favourite

songs, talk about the lyrics and maybe even sing

along, all from the comfort of our own homes. You’ll

get to know new artists and songs and gain a deeper

understanding of the ones you already enjoy

listening to.

6 x Tuesday 17:00 – 18:30 h

12 January – 16 February 2021

5 – 8 persons


This class is full. It will be

repeated soon

9

Course no. 2 What is art

and how do I talk about it?

You know when you’re walking around an art

gallery and you’re not sure what to say about an

exhibit? You can, of course, simply say “I like that”

or “What a load of nonsense”. But why stop there?

In this 6-week class, we’ll take a close look at various works

of European and American art from the 15th to the 21st

century. You’ll learn how to talk about colour, structure,

composition and also say why you like or don’t like a

particular work.

You’ll get plenty of practice using these expressions as we

take virtual tours through some of the world’s great art

galleries. Join me as we as look at saints, sharks and

sunsets and make our way from the golden age to the

golden toilet.

6 x Tuesday 18:45 – 20:15 h

12 January – 16 February 2021

5 – 8 persons

AUSGEBUCHT


Course no. 3 Coffee Morning

10

You’ve heard about afternoon tea, but there’s also

something called a Coffee Morning. This is a social event

where people get together to chat, drink coffee and eat cake.

You’ll have to bring your own coffee and cake, but I will

provide you with plenty of material for our chat.

We’ll start with some small talk. You’ll practice keeping a

conversation going, showing interest, and (just as

important) ending a chat.

After the small talk we’ll go a bit deeper and talk about social

and moral issues, food and drink, films and entertainment,

our so-called “world leaders”, or whatever else takes our

fancy.

At the end of each session I’ll go through any language issues

that need attention – grammar, vocabulary, style,

pronunciation and so on. So as well as having a good chat

about the world in general and meeting interesting people,

you’ll also bring your conversational skills up to the next

level. I’m looking forward to meeting you.

6 x Wednesday 10:30 – 12:00 h

13 January – 17 February 2021

5 – 7 persons


Course no. 4 Bach to

Beethoven and beyond –

Understanding classical music

11

Someone once said that music is what feelings sound like.

How true! Music can make us joyful or sad; it can give us

goose bumps or bore us to death; it can make us thoughtful or

feel as if we don’t have a care in the world.

In this course we’ll listen to and talk about our favourite pieces

of classical music and try to understand the mystery and

beauty behind some of the most famous works of Western

culture. This will include a look at how classical music

developed from Bach to Beethoven and beyond.

Theory will be kept to a minimum. Instead, the main focus will

be on listening and sharing ideas. By the end of this short

course you will have gained a lot of knowledge and be able to

express yourself more beautifully when you talk about

classical music. We will also have done something for our

wellbeing and prepared ourselves for the weeks and months

ahead, whatever they may bring! Sign up now and join me

from the comfort of your own home for this new and unique

online music appreciation class.

6 x Wednesday 17:15 – 18:45 h

13 January – 17 February 2021

5 – 8 persons


Course no. 5 Your Story – an

introduction to Creative Writing

12

Do you have an interesting or important story you’d like to

share with others? Did something really funny, strange or

exciting once happen to you? Or maybe you want your life

story to be passed on to later generations? If you can

answer yes to any of these questions, then this is the course

for you.

In this class you’ll learn how to write well and creatively

using your own life as a basis. We’ll try out different

techniques, and do fun exercises to get our creativity

flowing. We’ll also look at some British and American

autobiographies and talk about why they are so good.

You don’t need any creative writing experience in this

class, and it doesn’t matter if your English isn’t perfect.

What you will need are two to three hours a week outside

of class to read or write yourself, and you’ll need to be

willing to share at least some of your work with others. So

come along and start expressing yourself.

6 x Friday 10:30 – 12:00 h

22 January – 26 February 2021

5 – 8 persons


Course no. 6 Learn how to draw

step by step

13

Learning to draw is easier than you think. You just need

some basic supplies (paper and pencils), time and patience

plus a few good exercises. This six-week compact course

will get you started. Step by step and with clear guidance,

you will develop an eye for shape, depth and proportion

and you’ll soon see results.

By the way, drawing isn’t just fun, it’s also a great way to

reduce stress and it can help to increase your emotional

intelligence. So get started now.

6 x Friday 13:00 – 14:30 h

22 January – 26 February 2021

5 – 8 persons
