Welcome to Language Journeys
Do you like languages?
Do you want to discover new countries?
Do you know your native or any other language well enough to help others learn it?
Are you interested in making money online while travelling the world or are you dreaming of living abroad?
Let’s then do some language journeys!
My name is Daniela and I’d like to help you to live a language-related lifestyle which enables you to connect with people from all over the world while teaching and learning languages.
I’ve been fascinated by languages since I was a child but first studied sociology and then worked as a nurse. I never totally lost contact with languages but it was only after my children were grown up when I quit my job in Germany and became a self-employed German and English teacher while living in countries like Hungary, the Czech Republic and Portugal. In early 2017, I decided to go back to South America where I had already lived in the 1990’s and am now on the way to get settled in Lima, Peru.
Are you dreaming of living abroad and making a living with languages? Getting started as an online language teacher is not as difficult as you might think and possible even if you didn’t study languages at university and don’t know much about technology – like me. However, just like with all other things, success (and money) won’t come out of the blue. Or perhaps you’re frustrated because you can’t find enough students? I’ve been teaching online since 2012 and it’s been my only source of income since 2014, so I have some experience now and would like to share it with you. Read my post on which mistakes you should avoid when teaching online to get started. You’re also welcome to book a coaching with me.
When you earn your money as an online language teacher, location suddenly becomes unimportant. Well, more or less, a fast and reliable internet connection is essential. Travelling as a digital nomad normally means that you spend several weeks or even months in the same place. It’s not a holiday. You will have to find a way to structure your days. This lifestyle gives you a lot of freedom but also requires a lot of discipline and hard work. A lot of people go to Southeast Asia these days because it’s the living costs are much lower than in West Europe, North America or Australia, for example. Personally, I preferred to stay in Europe for the first 2.5 years and then decided to move to Peru and get settled again.
