German lessons and job application training with Your Language Coach

About me

My name is Valérie Janssen and  I am the founder of YOUR LANGUAGE COACH. I studied English and French to teach at secondary schools and German as a foreign language with minors in linguistics, literature and culture (Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich).

I travelled a lot and in the course of my studies and internships I temporarily lived in Canada, France and Southeast Asia. My passion for languages and foreign cultures has been reinforced, and thanks to theoretical and practical knowledge, I have developed excellent cross-cultural skills. I have turned my passion into my profession and work in my hometown, Munich, Germany. Today I offer German language courses (all levels A1-C2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, CEF) and professional application coaching in German. I competently prepare and tutor non-native speakers at this crucial stage of their career. Furthermore I offer various language and proofreading services as well as communication support.

Your Language Coach

Your partner for individual, flexible and customized German lessons and professional job application coaching

The day-to-day work with people from foreign countries with different languages, cultural backgrounds and experiences make my everyday life an exciting and continuous journey of discovery. A true and genuine interest in every individual learner and in his or her success is my key to the lasting optimal cooperation and harmony between learner and coach.

I am convinced that this is the basis for a very quick learning progress. Maximum language success can only be achieved when both sides are highly motivated and learners are optimally supported and inspired as well as professionally guided. Find out for yourself!

The language coaching with Valérie allowed me to learn German very quickly and to get to know and understand the German culture. Thanks to the job application training I succeeded to get my current job as mechanical engineer in Munich. An excellent and customized training experience!


Thanks to Valérie I was able in only 6 months to successfully learn German and get my B2 certificate. The training was a lot of fun and got me really motivated. The fact that she is fluent in French and English was a big plus to me. I am very thankful for the super Coaching!


In the context of French market research projects, we regularly work with Valérie. She takes over the entire French-speaking communication, the scheduling and realisation of our interviews. Her work is extremely reliable, fast and very professional. We can really highly recommend her!

Competence, professionalism and flexibility – exactly what I needed in order to pass the Goethe C1 certificate  for my graduation. With Valérie I was able to continue my lessons via Skype if needed and thereby I saved a lot of time. I never thought that I could achieve my aim having so much fun and at the same time proceeding so fast and efficiently!


Valérie is like a Personal Trainer. Her course was absolutely customized to my individual needs and I got exactly what was promised. It was a lot of fun and incredibly effective! I can really only recommend Valérie Janssen as Your Language Coach!


Valérie’s dedication and passion shined as she perfectly mastered introducing the German language to a group of our foreign colleagues. Thank you so much for the great dedication! We gladly, and without any reservations, would recommend working with Your Language Coach!

I will coach you on how to better present your talents and to maximize your chances for a desired position.

The focus will be on your CV, your cover letter and on practicing frequently asked questions in job interviews. You will gain confidence and be able to act spontaneously during the job interview.

You will also find support and inspiration on your way to finding new career tracks through an intensive exchange of ideas, the identification of your strengths and professional and motivating input.  Regularly there are German native speakers as well who make use of the  job orientation training and/ or the job application training.
