The Language School with a personal touch in the heart of Vienna

Are you looking for a boutique-style language school in Vienna that offers you a large array of course options?
Then we are the best choice for you. Our students are mainly international managers and diplomats, families who want to learn German together or individuals who want to profit from tailored classes taught by experienced native speakers. With a broad knowledge about Austrian and Viennese life, culture and traditions, we strive to create the perfect learning atmosphere by applying different teaching methods and connecting with our clients.



Learn Personal was established in 2005 in Vienna. We offer individualised language programs, tailored to the specific needs of our clients and group courses for companies, embassies and international organisations, as well as programs for kids from the age of 6. We have developed a vast variety of short term and long term German programs designed to help newcomers to Vienna feel at home quickly.

All our German teachers are native-speakers, have studied and/or worked and lived abroad, which taught them a lot about cultural challenges, expectations and needs of language learners who come to live in Austria.

Our team offers professional language training enriched with extensive experience in teaching their mother tongue to foreign speakers. Our language programs are distinguished through their focus on the personal needs of our students, our flexibility in terms of time and the outstanding personal efforts of our trainers. All of our trainers boast experience of teaching in various environments and are happy to share their passion with their clients (e.g. history, politics, arts&culture, music, architecture, yoga, travelling, sports).

All our language courses follow the European Reference Frame for Languages (A1-C2) and lead to the respective certificates.

Sabine Schuh - Principal, German and Business German Trainer

Sabine holds a Master’s degree in International Commerce from WU Wien as well as a degree of teaching German as a foreign Language that she obtained in Berlin. She is also a Certified Business Coach, having received training at the Freie Universität Berlin.  

Her journey into German teaching kicked off in 2000 at various Viennese language schools, and she joined the Learn Personal team in 2008. An entrepreneur, Sabine progressively got more involved in the organisation as well as in the development of language courses at Learn Personal, and bought the school in 2022. That same year, she opened a new office in Vienna’s first district. Sabine also has previous experiences working as a German lecturer and author at WU Wien and Fachhochschule WKW Wien. She has also worked as a trainer for Wirtschaftsmuseum in Vienna, notably delivering presentations across the country for the Austrian National Bank. 

Away from the textbooks and business meetings, Sabine has a very energetic personality with passions as diverse as her linguistic repertoire. From conquering slopes with her skis to running half-marathons and breezing through cross-country trails, she’s an outdoor and travel enthusiast. But that’s not all – Sabine has a passion for music & chocolate, loves dogs, vegetarian food,  movies and books.



Learn Personal teachers are all university graduates; they are trained and experienced in teaching German (or their respective mother tongue) as a foreign language.

Our German teachers are also fluent in other languages, particularly English; this allows them – if needed – to explain clearly and in better detail the overall structure, theory, and local colloquialisms that make German challenging for everyone.

Our Business language teachers are multi-talented as well. Being selected from a diverse pool of applicants, they are chosen not only for the required language qualifications, but also for their real world business experiences.

Professionalism, enthusiasm, creativity, and an empathetic ear are the values which all of the Learn Personal teachers strive to achieve with each lesson.
