Neha Chhatre-Mokashi

I have been associated with DA for 2.5 years. The work environment here is extremely professional yet friendly and flexible. Timely sessions & meetings with teachers and staff ensures organized, planned and coordinated teaching. This has indeed been one of the greatest experiences in my teaching career.

Anuja Kolhatkar

I have been a student of DA first and then a teacher. It has been a great journey through the years as we saw many changes in teaching styles, books and requirements of students. The constant guidance and support that I got from DA helped me feel confident enough to take on all batches that I did. And off course, the students and their enthusiasm always make everything worth a while! Friendly atmosphere, innovative approach and urge to do the best is what DA stands for me! The most recent shift to online classes has shown again the zeal of DA to overcome challenges and always think of the best for its students.

Dnyanada Joshi

I have been teaching German at DA since last 3 years. It has been a wonderful journey and I have learnt so many things about teaching. While working here I met so many people from all walks of life. It is always nice to see the happy faces of your students when they understand and start applying what you have taught them. Thanks, Frau Apte, for giving me this opportunity. And also, thanks to the wonderful team of collogues!

Harshada Soman

I have been working with Deutsch Activ for almost 3 years now and it has been nothing but a fulfilling journey. Along with my professional enrichment, I have also experienced growth on personal front. I have grown multifold under the mentorship of Mrs. Uma Apte. Her passion and work ethics is something which drives the entire team forward. Flexibility in my work schedule allows me to strike a perfect work-life balance, which I feel is of paramount importance to a satisfied career. The joy, that I see on faces of my students, gives me immense pleasure and energy to get back and do the same thing every single day. Over the years, I have developed beautiful relations with many of my students and colleagues. And when you see your students excel, that’s all that you want as a teacher. I look forward, continuing this delightful journey with Deutsch Activ. And I am sure, together we all can achieve greater heights of success.

Gauri Dongre

Programme Counsellor
Joining Deutsch Activ is an excellent opportunity and experience. The work culture here is very systematic and organized. Each day is a new day to learn more and more about German language, courses, students and many more things about Germany. Being a Programme counsellor, I get an opportunity to personally interact with students and get to know their learning experiences. We are very much glad to guide the students for their career in Germany or in India. I feel like part of a Family at DA. The creative and encouraging environment always boost up my capacities to be able to contribute of best of my abilities.

Truly a rewarding experience when it comes to working with people, students, teachers and vendors. Gives me the chances to use my skills and creativity. Overall, the nicest of all time for me, and clearly a heart winner.
