What will I learn?

  • Speaking, listening, reading, writing skills
  • Key vocabulary & grammar
  • Confidence for conversations
Start climbing that career ladder with German language skills under your belt - a recent CBI survey found that UK employers place German language skills at the top of their wish lists. Our fun and practical courses will help you get to grips with German quickly whether you are studying for business or pleasure.

The German language and German speakers remain central to our culture and economy. German is the second most commonly taught language in UK schools and Germany is second only to the US as a major UK trade partner. German is also spoken in Switzerland, Austria and Lichtenstein and is a common second language in many countries across Eastern Europe.

Our native teachers will help you to quickly gain confidence using German. Learning in small groups of no more than 14 students, you will explore the language using conversational practice, internet resources, TV programmes and audio resources to really bring the language to life. In no time at all you will be equally at home watching German theatre in Berlin or negotiating with suppliers in the Ruhr!
