German Courses in London
With German being Europe’s largest economic power, Germany’s presence in London is strong, and learning the language can open up many career opportunities. German courses in London are offered by a variety of schools, including the Goethe-Institut, Imperial College London and the CILT (Centre for Languages & International Education). Evening classes are especially popular with adults as they can be fitted around a busy lifestyle.
Intensive language training is also available, usually as a summer course with accommodation included. Immersing yourself in the culture of a country is one of the best ways to improve your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and to learn about German life and society. This type of training can also prepare you for a language exam if that’s your goal – whether for student or professional reasons.
Many websites offer free German lessons, such as Babbel and Memrise. However, in order to progress quickly and develop your German skills, it is a good idea to sign up for a private tutor. There are many teachers registered on Superprof who offer German lessons in London, and you can choose based on their hourly rate, location, accreditation, qualifications, ratings and comments from previous students, availability and speed of response. Some tutors will also provide a detailed profile, listing their experience, and teaching materials, so that you can decide which German teacher is right for you. You can also ask for a trial lesson to test out the tutor’s abilities and to see if you get on. German courses London
