Gaby Thomson-Wohlgemuth


Gaby was born and grew up in Vienna. She obtained a degree as a teacher of English and also studied the piano and then taught both. After falling in love with England, she moved there and worked there as a German teacher for 26 years. She worked in schools, at universities, in companies and also gained a Doctorate in Translation Studies. Although having always been interested in languages, Gaby began to analyse German when she started to teach it and saw how logical and structured the language was in comparison to other languages. “Teaching German was eye-opening; I had no idea how fascinating my mother tongue actually was!” Gaby now tries to bring her enthusiasm for German into her teaching, hoping that - despite all the effort that has to go into learning a new language - her students will also discover the beauty of this language.
