Stephanie Schaffrath

Managing Director

Stephanie is a South African journalist and businesswoman determined to be the person she needed when she was younger. Born into a German South African family, she was raised bilingual, attending the Deutsche Internationale Schule Johannesburg for 13 years and successfully obtaining her CII Goethe Zertifikat in 2015. Stephanie then went on to obtain a bachelor degree in English, psychology and media studies, as well as an Honours Degree in journalism and media studies at the University of Witwatersrand.

 

Through living with a host family in Germany for four months in 2011, Stephanie came to appreciate the power of languages. Upon her return to South Africa, she started tutoring German using her own experiences as a bilingual scholar to her advantage and, in turn, developing a method of teaching German that strives to make the language more enjoyable and accessible for students of all ages and levels of proficiency. Nine years later Stephanie founded Linguistika Languages and now takes pride in providing top quality language services to customers all over the world.
