My name is Georg Krause and I am a German teacher and director of Palmaleman. I was born and raised in Innsbruck, in western Austria.

I have worked as a German teacher in Austria, Italy and Spain, among others for the Goethe-Zentrum Genova and Komalingua Civitanova Marche. I speak, write and read Spanish, English, Italian and French fluently.
I graduated in Political Science and Italian Philology at the University of Innsbruck. At the University of Lyon I obtained the Certificat d’Études Politiques.

Throughout my professional career I have participated in numerous training courses that allow me to offer my students a wide range of teaching methods.
