Everybody can benefit from our general German courses - they endeavour to give the learner fluency in general German conversation, whether through learning the basics or improving existing skills. General courses concentrate mainly on sharpening up grammar and vocabulary, and aim to expand the ability to speak, read and listen German with full comprehension. These courses will be most suitable for those who want to improve their German to a practicable level, or as a basis for a business German course.
Our German group courses are targeted for sets of 2-12 people, all of whom have the same requirements from learning German. Everybody should be at about the same level at the start of the course, and the entire group should be able to meet at the same time and place each week. Grammar and vocabulary form the backbone of the general course, helping the student gain fluency in conversational topics whilst increasing their overall working German knowledge. For groups who wish to engage in further German study, the general course is an excellent starting point.
With our one-to-one German business courses, you can develop your current German skills to incorporate them effortlessly into your job - perfect for those employed by multinational organisations, moving abroad to work, or in search of employment overseas. Lessons are designed around your sector of industry and field of work, and tutors can aid learners in improving individual skills required by your role, such as giving presentations, writing reports or composing formal written correspondence.
Listen & Learn's group business courses in German are specifically designed to suit small groups (of 2-12 students) who already have a working knowledge of German, but want to focus on language for the business community. Your group should all be at approximately the same language level, have similar learning goals, and be available to study at the same time and location every week. Your teacher will tailormake your course based on the group aims and any specific business communication skills that the group wants to improve, such as negotiation or formal correspondence. Group business German courses are suitable for groups from any private or corporate organisations, for example those who need a higher or more specialised level of German for communication with international colleagues and clients, or those who need to develop particular skills or specialised industry terminology.
Specific purposes German courses are a great boon to people who have already studied German and wish to develop certain facets of their German skills. This can include an array of helpful guidance, including the following:
• Vocabulary related to the industry (legal, HR, engineering, accounting, medical etc.)
• Accent softening and elocution
• Expanding upon existing aspects (writing, speaking, listening, reading etc.)
• Language for travelling
• Communication skills in business (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Writing skills in business (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• Historical and cultural sensitivity
If you have a group of 2-12 German learners who all require particular language skills or vocabulary, this option may be ideal for you. All members of the group should be at the same level, intermediate, upper intermediate, or advanced. We can tailor a group language course to address any of the following:
• Accent softening and elocution
• Training to improve specific language skills (writing, comprehension, listening)
• Language for international travel
• Business communication skills (e.g. telephony, presentation, training, negotiation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• >Language for specific industries (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)
• Historical and cultural sensitivity.
"Zack is a great teacher, he is so kind and serious, and also flexible to meet the demands. I took his courses for 1 months before I moved to Germany and it was great that I could already communicate with German people when I arrived here. Thanks Zack and thanks 'listen and learn'. KZ@Duesseldorf"
