What does standard page mean?

  • By using the standard page, it is easy to determine the correct basis of price calculation for your order.

  • Standard page = 1,500 characters including spaces

  • To obtain the total number of characters in your text = use the function: File -> Check -> Word count.

  • This number divided by 1,500 results in the number of standard pages..


How can I determine the number of words in my text?

Open the file in MS Word -> click on file register "Check" -> click on "Word count"..



In MS Word can be seen now: the number of words and the number of characters with and without spaces, respectively; moreover, the number of pages, paragraphs, and lines.


Of special interest in case of scientific texts: Checkmark the box "Observe text fields, foot- and endnotes", by doing this, MS Word is also counting the foot- and endnotes.




All corrections made in your texts are made in the mode "File / Check / Track changes". Thus, it is very easy for you to trace back any change or correction made in your text.

Is the language training organized in group - or individual lessons?

I offer private individual lessons.


By this, it is easier to address the child's need to make up specific learning contents.

Lasting learning success is achieved by a flexible design of learning contents, individually adapted training units and a regular monitoring of the learning progress.
