Our native-speaking, qualified German teachers will tailor your individual or group language course to suit your personal learning aims and German level. They are available to conduct classes in your home or office in Doncaster, on a day and at a time that suits you. Course books are included, and timetables can often be as flexible as you need. Your personalised course will be built around one of the following options:
General German language courses are ideal for students at any level, from complete beginners to advanced learners. These courses are based around developing communication skills in common situations. Your teacher will place an emphasis on vocabulary and grammar, with plenty of speaking, listening, and reading practice. Our general German courses are an ideal way to get started in the language, build on existing skills, or attain a working knowledge before progressing to a business or specialised German course.
Group German courses are available for groups of 2 to 12 people - we require only that your group are able to meet at the same time and place each week, and that you are all at approximately the same level in your German studies (no matter how elementary or advanced). As a general course, the focus will be on building conversational skills for common, real-life German situations. If you need you and your employees to have a working knowledge of German, this is the best place to start.
One-to-one business German courses are aimed at learners who already have at least a working knowledge of German, but would like to further develop their skills in business communication. Our courses can be adapted to focus on your particular industry, and your trainer can help you with specific areas of skill development, such as report-writing, dictation, or business correspondence. Business German courses are great for any professionals who would benefit from further knowledge of German, including those working in multinational companies, preparing for international transfer, or seeking a new position. Many of our business students work in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, academia, and government.
Designed for groups of 2-12 learners, our business German group courses are tailormade for the students (and industry) in question. All members of the class should be at the same approximate level of German at the start of the course, able to meet at a regularly-scheduled time and place, and should all have similar learning aims within the language. Lessons focus on enhancing and strengthening core German skills which will help in the professional arena, such as specific vocabulary usage and developing the ability to perform many different tasks in a new language (for example, giving a first-rate presentation, or the right way to compose formal business communication).
Specific purpose courses in German are aimed at those who already have semi-proficient skills in German but wish to improve in particular areas of expertise. Your teacher can guide you through many features of German to help you gain fluency, linguistic or not. These may include:
• Accent softening / pronunciation
Developing existing aptitude for writing, reading, listening, speaking, etc.
• Language for international travel Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. proposals, reports, formal correspondence)
• Vocabulary for particular industry (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)
• Understanding historical and cultural context
German courses catered for specific needs can be extremely useful in your group gaining not only fluency but an all-round knowledge of the German culture, language and common practices. Groups of 2-12 students with the same learning aims can benefit from any of the following:
• Vocabulary for relevant industry (e.g. HR, engineering, accounting, medical, legal)

"The German course is going great. German is a very difficult language - I didn't think I would be able to understand the grammar, but it is starting to make sense! Susanne has been a great teacher. She has so much patience and we actually have fun during our time together. "
