Whether you want to polish up your conversational skills for Oktoberfest or learn enough to do business in Germany, you can find the German classes London that you need. From beginners survival courses to advanced business-specific vocabulary, there are options for every level.
With about 100 million people in the world who speak German as a native language, it’s no wonder that learning this rich and diverse language is a popular goal for many people. And, since the UK is a hub for international trade, it’s a particularly important language to know.
Depending on how you choose to study German in London, you can either attend classes at a school or take private tutoring sessions. Private tutors are usually students studying as a second language or are bilingual German expats who teach for extra income. They often advertise on classifieds websites or on businesses’ noticeboards. Their rates will vary according to their level of expertise and the amount of preparation they need to do before each class.
At a specialized language school, you’ll likely find more structured German courses that meet at specific times of the day or evening. For example, CIEE offers beginner survival German classes and higher-level students can sign up for courses in topics like German news and music. CIEE also runs semester-long study abroad programs in Germany that include intensive German language courses.
In terms of private tutors, there are a lot to choose from. Listen and Learn is a British franchise that offers a bespoke teaching plan, and their German tutors are available in the London area. They offer online lessons, too.
