In Nov 2009 I founded my own business named 'flexible languages, which is language learning company for teaching English and German (in future also Chinese) in classrooms and live online (virtually) to adults, young learners, students and people in companies who work as mechanics, technicians, secretary, customer advisor,...

'flexible languages' was registered at the area authority of trade in Grieskirchen on the 6th of Nov in 2009 and since then I am legally able to offer language services to companies, adult education centres, the public and private people. I run my language company as entrepreneur without partners and employees.


  • Timewalk in English in May: guided tour through an English garden and on an organic farm conducted by a British native (organic farming and Celtic history), see link:
  • Primary school project, English for kids in June: why do children learn English in school and visit companies in town that communicate and deal with their customers in English = educational excursion , see link: 
  • CoFounder of Laudate Kids, a children's choir with rhythmic singing and movement training (since 2005) that organize and perform singing events, musicals and special festivals, write and conduct self-composed musicals, gained many years of stage experience at various occasions.

In 1989, after I had finished my studies at the School of Business Administration in Bad Ischl/Austria, I attended several advanced Cambridge FCE & Proficiency classes in London (1989 - 1990), which was a great  'intercultural experience' in Great Britain.

Until 1994 I worked as bank assistant for the Austrian financial syndicate named Raiffeisen. I was in charge of professional finance advice for local customers by  representing the Raiffeisen institute and meeting the customers needs.  Cooperating with colleagues, working precisely and trustworthy and multilingual communication enabled me to combine my professional experience in finance with speaking English.

After my maternity leave until 1999, I worked at a professional agriculture school and gained insight into the various tasks and responsibilities of an educational institution especially school administration and course design, course development and govenmentally ruled issues.

In 2000  I was asked to share my language experience with young learners, students at A-level, adults and mature learners. Those heterogeneous learners did not only differ in their learning style and their particularly professional interests, but also in their needs of being taught and accompanied throughout their language learning process individually. Shortly after I was asked to work for several schools, especially Adult Education Centres in Austria and Teacher Academy:

- Volkshochschule Grieskirchen

- Katholisches Bildungswerk Waizenkirchen

- Landwirtschaftliches Fortbildungswerk Grieskirchen

- Volkshochschule Peuerbach

- Volkshochschule Eferding

- Ibis acam Grieskirchen/Arbeitsmarktservicestelle Grieskirchen

- Pädagogische Hochschule Burgenland, VPH Onlinecampus Eisenstadt

Beside  teaching and training I attended several studies concerning methodology, didactics, language teaching, learning strategies, business English + technical English + mechanical issues, intercultural competence, multiple intelligences, group dynamics, pedagogical issues, non-violent communication,....

After I had finished my studies for teaching live online named LANCELOT in 2007, I acquired the qualification called AVALON  in 2010, which was conducted and assessed by University of Manchester, University of Vienna, University TÖ;MER... 

Since 2007 I also gained live online teaching experience within an intercultural setting by working for International online language schools:

- Let's Talk Online, Germany

- CELC in Tokyo, Japan 

In 2009 I founded the language training institute  "flexible languages" applying  pioneering technology of the 21st century in order to coach and benefit flexible and sophisticated learners who require a new way of language tuition. Since 2009 I have successfully been accompanying and assisting companies, adults in international firms, teenage learners and  learners of business and vocational schools in trainings, teachings, business correspondence, translations and individual coachings:

- ISOLENA in Waizenkirchen, Austria

- Lehner Wolle in Waizenkirchen, Austria

- Knoblinger in Ried, Austria

- Weigl Liftsystems in Waizenkirchen, Austria

- Hartlauer in Steyr, Austria

- Mobilitas & Staudt in Wels, Austria

- Lesslhumer Cecilia Zumba in Waizenkirchen, Austria

From January to March 2013 I participated in a 10-weeks online  eTeacher training which was conducted by the University of Oregon, USA. Web tools & programs and latest teaching theory and practice were part of the curriculum and studies.

In 2014 some more companies decided to book an individual coaching with flexible languages as well as some international language schools agreed to cooperate with FL and allowed FL to promote and offer international oversea English language trainings as Austrian agent:

Language schools

- Full immersion, Ireland

- A2Z Manchester & London

- IGC Canada & Kelowa & Belize

- Lerncamp Benenden, GB

- Gymglish, France


- Noviqua in Neumarkt, Austria

- MKW Oberflächen + Draht GmbH in Haag, Austria

- Viktoria Luftensteiner Jewellery in Aschach, Austria

- Fundermax GmbH in St. Veit, Austria

Looking forward to cooperating with forward-looking companies, innovative language schools and inspired learners.
