GermanMind is Ireland’s leading German language school based in the heart of Dublin. GermanMind began its journey in 2016 when School Director Sarah saw how loved the German language and culture was in Ireland. The adoration for her native language inspired Sarah to create a language school where passion for the German language was a priority, and fun in learning was a given. With six native and bi-lingual teachers, GermanMind has taught over hundreds of successful students thus far, with 75% returning students, from beginners to advanced with progression leading to new careers, new relationships, and a deeper understanding and love for Germany and its language.
Our ethos is to teach German in a fun and friendly learning environment, with small class sizes, passionate teachers, and continuous development in Europe’s most popular language. We pride ourselves on our students advancing their language skills in our interactive classrooms where no question is too big or small, and every student need is put to the forefront of their learning plan.
We provide all students with a free language assessment to decide upon which course suits them and their needs most. With only eight students per class, our experienced teachers can spend more time with each person, focusing on the area they most want to excel in, whether it is a general chat with friends, or a business meeting with colleagues.
GermanMind is unlike any other language school you know, our passion and pride for our native language shines out in all our students who leave class fluent in the German language.

We love teaching GErman! Here is why!
I love teaching German because sharing my knowledge about the German language with my students is so rewarding. Most of my private students have been learning German with me for several months or even years. They are more than students, they are friends; teaching is more than a profession, it's a passion. GermanMind is like a small part of Germany but in Dublin; teaching German in Ireland feels like I am recreating a home away from home. I founded GermanMind to inspire, support and mentor people who are interested in the German language and in the German culture.
I love teaching German because of the pride and joy I feel witnessing a student’s progress and enthusiasm. Whether it is a student who can confidently keep apart all four cases, a student who fluently tells me about his/her last weekend in perfect tense or a student who regularly ends our virtual lessons with the German words: “Hoch die Hände, Wochenende” - I can’t get enough of it! People learn German for different reasons and purposes. Although they may acquire it for work, for love or for their next trip to Berlin, ultimately, they do not only pick up linguistic skills but an altered consciousness of the diverse German culture.
I love teaching German because I love helping people open new doors and achieve their goals. Students often come with the assumption that German is especially hard to learn, but it doesn’t have to be – you’ll see! I’m always trying to make German more accessible and when students tell me, after just a few classes, how they ordered drinks in German during their trip, or how they sent a German text message to a friend or that they finally understand the lyrics to that German song they heard on holidays – those are my favourite moments. And by making the language more accessible, a whole new culture becomes more accessible too.
I love teaching German because language teaching isn’t like any other type of teaching. We don’t simply teach facts and information; we enable access to an entire culture in which a language lives, breathes and grows. So whether it’s by helping an aspiring young worker move forward in a career that involves German, assisting someone in their goal to communicate meaningfully with new German-speaking family and friends or just sharing insight into German culture to a curious student through the language, it is always such a pleasure to accompany students on this journey.
GermanMind is recruiting passionate German teachers for daytime teaching as well as for evening courses. We love teaching here at GermanMind, and happy students are our focus.
