Daniel Nicoletti originally comes from Hilden, a smaller city close to Düsseldorf and Cologne in the western part of Germany. In 2007 he graduated from Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf as a cultural scientist. While studying, he already taught German to exchange students and obtained his first certificate as teacher of German as a foreign language. Interested in history and languages he then moved to Berlin to study the culture and history of Eastern Europe at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt/Oder. Combining studying and teaching, Daniel took part in a teachers’ program by the Goethe-Institut, teaching German in Tomsk, Russia. Since his return to Berlin in 2010, he has been working at different language schools throughout the city, gradually extending his qualifications by becoming an examiner for German language certificates from A1 to C1, alphabetization, and integration classes.
