About the Author: jan

My name is Jan and I live in the south west of Germany. My profession is being a project manager at a company that creates digital media (first of all internet related things). This is my job since over a decade so I´m quite familiar with the web and its tools. Whereat today almost every school kid does. But that´s one of the main reasons why nowadays there are quasi no more limits in the internet and so it can be used for all imaginable types of things. For example learning languages! And that´s where we are at the moment. I first got in touch with Transparent Language when my family and I used to live in France a couple of years ago. I just had a break from work and by coincidence I produced some cultural videos in French. A few months later the whole blogging thing came up and I was lucky to be a part of it. So now my (second) job is to feed you with information, exercises, vocabulary, grammar and stories about Germany and German language. For being a passionate videographer I´m trying to do this more and more by videos. If you have any wishes or needs of topics that should be treated here, please don´t hesitate to contact me via a comment field. I´m open to your suggestions (as long as they are not too individual) and will try to satisfy your needs.


  1. Dr. Kurt R. Fiedler:

    Dear Jan, since you are a videographer I am interested in reading about the German mountain Wanderweg called RENNSTEG in the provinces of Thuringia and Saxony and perhaps even seeing a movie of it.
    Your production of Der Garten und die Bilder waren lehrreich und farbenfroh.

    Machen Sie nur so weiter!!

    Vielen Dank im Voraus für die zukünftigen Sendungen.

    Auf Wiedersehen,

    Dr.K.R.Fiedler,Annapolis,Maryland, an der Chesapeake Bay in USA

  2. Linda:

    Thank you for showing a German home garden. It is so interesting to see how Germans live in their homes. We have plenty of historical sights and cities shown on the internet, but to share a small part of someone’s life is especially nice.

    I am a visual learner, so this was very helpful. Vielen Dank!
