With fully qualified native speaker German teachers all around Doncaster, we will have little problem arranging a language course to cater for your requirements and present German proficiency. Teachers can visit you at your own home or workplace, and classes are arranged to suit your schedule. Your first text book is complimentary - just make sure you pick the most appropriate option from the course packages below:
Our general German language courses are suitable for learners of any level. They aim to enable communication in everyday situations and are an ideal way to improve your knowledge of German, whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned speaker. A general course focuses predominantly on grammar and vocabulary, supported by development of speaking, reading, and listening skills. General courses are ideal if you want to attain or improve on an all-round level of German, or build a strong foundation before moving on to business German training.
Listen & Learn's general German courses for groups are a great option for groups of 2-12 colleagues or friends who are at the same level in studying German. Your group should have similar learning goals and be available to study at the same time and location every week. The courses are tailored to suit the group's level, no matter how elementary or advanced. General courses aim to give students knowledge of common German that would be used in real scenarios. Your teacher will cover a lot of grammar and vocabulary, as well as give you ample opportunities to practise your reading, listening, and speaking skills. General group German courses are great for groups who would like to begin learning German, or improve on existing skills and knowledge. These courses are also highly recommended as a first step for companies who would like their employees to move on to a business language course once they have a working knowledge of German.
Our business courses cater to learners with a decent general knowledge of German but would like to expand their skills for use in the business world. Courses are, as always, completely tailormade for the relevant industry and skill sets (e.g. business correspondence, writing reports etc.). One-to-one business courses are perfect for professionals hoping to develop their current German skills, especially those working for multinational corporations, preparing to work from abroad, or looking for overseas employment.
Intended for learners who already have a basic grasp of German and wish to extend it to apply to their working lives, group business German courses are a great way to enable employees within a multinational corporation to be productive in both their native tongue and their newly-acquired German. Group courses cater for up to 12 people (minimum of 2 students), and should be scheduled to take place at the same time and location each week. The tutor will develop the group's vocabulary to suit the related industry, as well as improve competence for day to day tasks performed in German.
For individuals at intermediate or advanced level German who have specific professional or interest-related language requirements, we are more than happy to incorporate any of the following elements into your language course:
• Accent softening and elocution
• Training to improve particular 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.
As long as all members of a group German course are at a similar level of expertise, specific purpose German courses can be customised to suit the needs of the group of 2-12 students with similar learning aims. These often include:
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
"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"
