Bernadette Victoria Lohoff

My name is Bernadette Lohoff and I am 48 years old from Germany. I was born in the beautiful Westphalian city of Muenster. Dubai has been my home for over 10 years now and I am here with my husband of many years who also happens to be a teacher.

The universities I attended were ‘die Universitaet zu Paderborn’ where I studied English and German literature and language and the ‘Farnborough College of Technology ‘in Hampshire, UK where I read European Business Studies with 3 languages (Italian, Spanish and French) and Marketing.
I lived in the UK for 15 years where I worked in the airline industry and built-up and managed call centers. Since coming to the UAE in 2012, I have been teaching English and German to adults and children of all ages at various Language Institutes before starting my teaching career at SISD in 2015.
I am one of the founding members of SISD and I am very proud to say that I have been with this unique school since day one!
To me, learning new languages means not only a greater means of communication but it also opens the doors to different countries and cultures.
My hobbies are reading and cooking and I feel most fortunate that my husband patiently tolerates my cooking experiments which he then has to eat.
I am looking forward to continuing the adventure that is German Language support and meeting many new students. Let the learning commence!
