I loved working with Kharazm. He’s was very flexible in working with my
schedule and most important he takes an active interest in student’s
learning. Kharazm took time outside of class to help me practice my
conversational skills. Also, he was very patient and persistent until I
become comfortable at a conversational level. I’m currently trying to
continue my German studies at one of the big German schools in the States
and I can say Kharazm’s dedication and personal touch are sorely missed.
For busy working professionals, Kharazm’s professional yet flexible approach
can’t be beat! I recommend him & his teaching methods wholeheartedly.
When I came to Kharazm, I had specific requests on how I wished to improve
my German. Going back and learning grammar can be very dull, but he made it
fun enough for me to persevere. I am sure his personal experience of
learning German as a foreign language makes him the good teacher he is.
Jezeli ktos mysli znalesc dobrego nauczyciela od niemieckiego, to dobrze trafil. Sam jestem dowodem na to. Poznalem go na Mittelstufe 1, wlasciwie to z polecenia innej osoby, ktora go niesamowicie zachwalala. Noc coz targaly mna watpliwosci, w koncu Kharazm Mottaghy brzmi malo z niemiecka, a ja chcialem, w koncu bylem w niemczech, niemieckiego sie od Niemca uczyc, no i wlasciwy akcent zalapac. Okazalo sie ze on mieszka prawie cale zycie w niemczech i mowi lepiej po niemiecku, niz wiekszosc Niemcow ktorych znam. Naleze do osob ktorzy niestety musieli sie niemieckiego nauczyc, i dla mnie byla to droga przez meke. Nigdy nie lubilem tego jezyka a tu trzeba sie zmusic i go nauczyc, niestety w pracy nie moglem sie bez niemieckiego za dobrze porozumiec. Kurs prowadzony przez Kharazma byl wlasciwie pierwszym, ktory wzbudzil we mnie zainteresowanie tym jezykiem, na ktorym zaczalem rozumiec nie tylko gramatyke, ale rowniez ze mozna na niemieckim tez sie posmiac, i poprowadzic inteligentna rozmowe. Coz dlugo by pisac, ale wlasnie zdalem KDS Pruefung i bez jego pomocy na pewno by mi sie to nie udalo. Jezeli ktos chce sie niemieckiego nauczyc, moze nawet polubic ten jezyk, a nie tylko chodzic na kursy, to bardzo polecam.
Sehr geehrter Herr Mottaghy
Ich habe zwei intensiv Sprachkursen bei der Münchner Volkshochschule besucht und Sie waren mein Lehrer. Schliesslich hatte ich die C1 Zertifikat sehr gut bestanden.
Ich hoffe, dass Sie noch aktiv sind, und dass Sie immer noch frisch angekommenen Ausländischen helfen, bessere Sprachkenntnisse zu entwickeln. Ich hoffe, wir treffen uns wieder in der Zukunft. In der Zwischenzeit bedanke ich mich bei Ihnen für alles und wünsche Ihnen alles Beste.
Ik heb mijn Duits uitstekend kunnen verbeteren, aangezien de heer Mottaghy goed kan bepalen op welk niveau je bent en waarop je moet concentreren. Buiten het leren van de grammatica past hij altijd het converseren toe. Gewoon praten over de dagelijkse dingen van het leven. Dit heeft mijn duits aanzienlijk verbeterd. Daarom kan ik iedereen de heer Mottaghy aanraden als je duits wilt leren op een leuke manier.
I can say with the utmost sincerity that Herr Mottaghy is the most patient teacher I have ever had. He has certainly been faced with some „linguistically challenged“ students. His lessons were always fun and he also threw in a few lessons on German history, culture and quirks for free.

Olen erittäin tyytyväinen niihin keskustelutunteihin, joita kävin Kharazmin kanssa runsaan vuoden ajan. Peruskielitaitoni oli jo Saksaan tullessani varsin vahva ja näillä tunneilla sain lisää varmuutta ja sanavarastoa käytännön keskustelutaitoihini saksan kielellä. Suosittelen lämpimästi.

I have been learning German with Kharazm for 4 months and have found these lessons valuable. He is a very good teacher and makes the lessons enjoyable in a relaxed atmosphere.
Thanks to Kharazm I can now communicate with my wife.
Hartelijk dank voor de fijne rune die ik heb beleefd tijdens de Duitse les en voor de hulp bij heft leren van die aartsmoeilijke grammatica!

استاد خوارزم متقی یکی از بهترین استادانی است که من تا به حال داشته ام. بسیار مهربان، به یادماندنی و تأثیر گذار، دارای معلومات بسیار در زبان آلمانی و آگاه به روش تدریس درست و نه „طوطی وار“!
تجربه شخصی من گواه این ادعا میباشد چرا که من در طول ٢ ترم آموزش با ایشان پیشرفت چشمگیری داشته ام.
به هر حال به خاطر همه چیز از ایشان سپاسگزارم چرا که در کنار زبان آلمانی تا حدی چگونه خوب و درست زندگی کردن در غربت را هم از ایشان آموختم.

For all Colleagues, who wants to learn and get the German language in a
I studied German for around 3 months under the Profession of Prof KHARAZM
MOTTAGHY and now i found a job at Munich Airport, my Boss was very impressed
from my German Language and he couldn’t believe that i can get it in this
short time, he saw it in a very positive way and offers me the job . I can
only say Thank You my Prof for your Help 🙂
I would also like to recommend Mr. Kharazm Mottaghy as a private tutor for everyone who wants to learn a proper German. He is very experienced and will not only teach you this beautiful language but he can also give you very useful information on German culture, art and politics, not to forget local Bavarian peculiarities and dialect. I personally improved my German a lot under his supervision and it was a great pleasure every time we met in class.
Sehr geehrter Herr Mottaghy,
vielleicht erinneren Sie sich nicht mehr an mich, aber ich habe Ihren C1.2. Deutschkurs an der Volkshochschule besucht.
Ich wollte nur Ihnen mitteilen, dass ich die C1 Goethe-Prüfung bestanden habe. Ich freue mich sehr darüber!
Ich wünsche Ihnen alles gute und herzlichen Dank für Ihren Deutschkurs.
Hallo Herr Mottaghy, heute hat mich die Leiterin des Studienkollegs angerufen und mir gesagt, dass Sie mit sehr positiven Worten über mich gesprochen haben, wofür ich nochmal Ihnen danke. Ich bedanke mich bei Ihnen auch für alles, was Sie mich gelehrt haben. Sie sind nicht nur ein sehr guter Lehrer, sondern auch ein sehr sehr guter Mensch. Vielen Dank
I also recommend Kharazm Mottaghy. Very nice person, excellent teacher, very flexible on hours. I had some classes also on Skype.
For those of you interested in learning German I can really recommend Kharazm Mottaghy.
I’m a 25 year old Irish guy and I came here to Germany in September 2013 without a single word of German.
I started taking lessons from Kharazm around the end of November and since then I have gone from a complete novice to somewhere between the B1-B2 level. He is extremely friendly and welcoming, he follows a structured learning plan but also fits in plenty of time for spoken practice. He is particularly good at finding where your holes are and working hard to fill the gaps. He is very reasonably priced, I know this because I tried a few German teachers before settling on him as my only one. He is extremely flexible and will work around your schedule.
So if you are a beginner or are serious about improving your German for work, get in contact with Kharazm, you won’t regret it.
I would propose my German teacher, he is really good 🙂 and have very good sense of humor, so if you want have fun and learn something you can contact him
As did another member in the thread, I highly recommend Mr. Kharazm Mottaghy for a private tutor in German.
He is already a teacher at the Volkshochschule, and is very experienced and patient (he needs it with me). I do 90mn per week and after a few moments I’m already gearing up for a B1 exam.
By all means, get in contact with him if you are looking for private German lessons in Munich.
I’ve been taking private lessons from Kharazm Mottaghy since September, 2014. Kharazm is a wonderful teacher – very thorough and thoughtful. He is always willing to spend the time and effort to make sure the students truly understand the topic. I fully recommend him to everyone!
I would like to recommend Kharazm Mottaghy as a private tutor.I had lessons with him for four months (starting level – B1.2) and I have never learnt so much in such a short time. The lessons were interesting, well-structured and very well adjusted to my learning pace and knowledge I already had. He explains German grammar in a very clear, professional way and encourages you to talk a lot. But most importantly, lessons with Mr Mottaghy made me genuinely interested in the German language and motivated me to learn more.
If you want to improve your German in a fast and efficient way, you should definitely contact Mr Mottaghy.

I am just providing an updated thread regarding a private German language teacher. I had tried a couple of the language schools (including Goethe), but found the large classes ineffective and a waste of time. They simply didn’t meet my needs for specific, tailored learning given that I already had a good base in German.
Several people had recommended Kharazm Mottaghy, and it was through the recommendations on Toy Town that I contacted Kharazm and have been taking private lessons with him 1-2 times per week since February 2016. He is a very experienced teacher, and is currently writing his own German grammar book, and also teaches at the Volkshochschule. Kharazm is flexible with time, and has a good sense of humour. Each lesson is designed to suit your needs as a learner, and he is very good at identifying your weak areas and putting a focus on these to strengthen them and ensure you understand. I also really like the teaching materials he uses as these are easy to follow, and provide a good balance of reading, listening, speaking and writing exercises.
I highly recommend Kharazm if you need to improve your German – no matter what level you are at. He is very reasonably priced.

Je prends des cours perso (2 heures par semaine) avec Kharazm Mottaghy depuis 1 ans. Il a un site web http://khamo.de
Il est tres flexible car j’ai un boulo avec beaucoup des deplacements. Il est vraiment l’ecoute et il prend du temps d’expliquer les choses difficiles.
Bon courage !!

Regarding Kharazm Mottaghy…why is he not training DaF teachers? He really should be. But then again, maybe what he does is a gift. I am so glad I followed the advice on this list and gave him a holler.
I began with him back in April and my German has improved by leaps and bounds. I had some German back in college, over 30 years ago, so I could still recite Die Lorelei. Not much help there, although I do recite it beautifully. I worked in an international school for 5 years, so it was English all day, every day and the promised free German lessons never really materialized. The VHS classes did not fit with our school schedule. Grr. Then a move to Freising and I needed, wanted to get serious about my German. (I really think moving to foreign countries is something that should be done by people much younger than I am and, if you must, then avoid falling in love and marrying a local man! Language learning halfway to senility is a nightmare!) So that’s the background.
Kharazm is fantastic! There were times I cried in our meetings, sometimes in frustration because this language is kicking my butt, but once because he explained something so clearly that had never been explained so clearly before, not in the A2.1 course I managed to take in the other place, not in the Sprach-Activ class in Freising where the man was mostly concerned about my „v“ not being „effy“ enough (not until I had actually had spit coming out with the sound), nor in college. We’ve filled in a lot of gaps. My German husband says my German has improved a great deal. I am understanding people a lot more clearly (except when they speak Bayerisch). I still have a long way to go, but Kharazm is not only is a brilliant language teacher, he has also given me hope. I actually walk out each week feeling hopeful. And that’s quite an accomplishment.
Starting B1 after the summer break. There may be some things I never get. I am closer to 60 than 50 (see? I wasn’t far off with that crack about senility!). But I am functional now and getting better all the time.
Thank you, guys.
(And if you are wondering if a native speaker wouldn’t be better, he brings a view from the outside about how German works. One of my best math teachers was one who struggle with
math as a student.)
Mr. Kharazm Mottaghy is an excellent & fantastic German teacher. I have attended other German courses as well and Mr. Kharazm is one of the best teachers. He is really very friendly & his good sense of humour really keeps one very positive. His guidance really helped me in clearing my exam. I strongly recommend his classes/tution for the people preparing for German exam.
Sehr geehrter Kharazm Mottaghy,
servus! Wie geht es Ihnen? Mir geht es wirklich gut und ich möchte gern Ihnen gute Nachrichten erzählen.
Zuerst habe ich die Goethe B2 Prüfung bestanden! Ich habe die Prüfung am Ende April gemacht und habe letze Woche mein Ergebnis bekommen. Meine beste Teil war Schreiben. Sie haben viele meiner Schreibübungen korrigiert, deshalb hatte ich keine Angst vor diesem Teil. Ich bin sicher, dass mein Erfolg von Ihren Unterrichten kam.
I would like to recommend Kharazm Mottaghy for anyone who is searching for private German lessons. I have been learning from Herr Mottaghy for about 6 months now and my German has greatly improved. Before working with him, I was taking intensive German classes with a local school and often felt like my time was being wasted. With Herr Mottaghy, we move at a pace that is right for me. I have even learned new things about the material in which I have already learned, with his explanation being much clearer and simpler. I value the time I have to simply talk with him about various topics of interest, in addition to learning from a text book. We speak only in German and I find him very easy to understand. He is professional and clearly has an interest in helping his students learn. Don’t waste any more time searching for a private German teacher- contact him now!!
Ich habe die Deutschprüfung sehr gut gemacht 🙂
Vielen dank für deine Hilfe!
„I am so glad that Kharazm Mottaghy helped me prepare for the German Goethe-Zertifikat B1. His lessons always flew by, as they were both fun and informative. He helped me to easily understand the structure & rules of the test, from the point-of-view of the grader (especially for the writing and speaking sections). I passed the test with flying colors! I look forward to continue improving my German with Kharazm and highly recommend him as a German language tutor!“
I can also recommend Kharazm Mottaghy. He has helped me for my B1 exam. I was impressed that I told him my goal and he worked towards it whereas other German teachers have just tried to teach me German in general. He is very friendly and the fact that he is not native German means that he has a good sense of humour !! (Only kidding).
Working with Herr Mottaghy is a wonderful experience. I have learned a lot in a short amount of time. Learning a new language as an adult is a daunting task, but Herr Mottaghy is extremely patient and kind. The value that I’ve received as his student far exceeds what I’ve experienced in group classes and online tutorials. If you have exams or want to learn at a quick pace, I highly recommend working with Kharazm!
Mr. Mottaghy was an excellent German teacher. His practical teaching method, combined with his sense of humor and encouraging attitude, provided the best German lessons I’ve had in my few years of taking them. With his preparation, I was able to pass the B1 Goethe exam and improve my knowledge of the day-to-day German I need to communicate effectively in the language.
Vielen Dank, Herr Mottaghy!
After having completed two intensive German courses at various institutions I wanted to further my German learning with a private teacher who will make German interesting for me to learn again. I am really glad I found Herr Mottaghy as my private teacher because my verbal skills have improved tremendously since I started taking lessons with him. Herr Mottaghy is a fun and non-judgmental teacher, with whom students can feel free to speak and make mistakes. Herr Mottaghy also couples his lessons with traditional textbooks, which I find necessary for students to keep track of their learning progress. I appreciate my lessons with Herr Mottaghy a lot and look forward to continuing more lessons with him.

Kharazm me ha enseñado alemán durante 8 meses en la Münchner Volkshochschule y solo puedo decir que ha sido un fantástico profesor. Llegué a Alemania sin saber prácticamente nada de alemán, y gracias a él estoy ya preparada para examinarme del nivel B2. Además de explicar las bases gramaticales y el vocabulario de una manera muy clara, se preocupa por preparar a sus estudiantes para „el alemán del día a día“, lo cual me parece lo más importante. Se mostró siempre muy paciente y comprensivo con los fallos y estuvo dispuesto a ayudarme incluso con temas no relacionados con las clases. En definitiva, Kharazm ha sido para mí un profesor en el que confiar, por lo que lo recomiendo sin ninguna duda.
Kharazm taught me German for 8 months at the Münchner Volkshochschule and I can only say that he was a fantastic teacher. I came to Germany knowing almost no German at all, and thanks to him I am now ready to take the B2 exam. Besides explaining the basics of grammar and vocabulary in a very clear way, he takes care to prepare his students for „everyday German“, which I think is the most important thing. He was always very patient and understanding with my mistakes and was willing to help me even with topics not related to the lessons. All in all, Kharazm has been a reliable and attentive teacher for me, and I would recommend him without any hesitation.
