1:1 and Group German Courses

At SIMON & SIMON we offer different learning options depending on your needs. Our tailored German language courses take into account what you need to learn, for example business language or social language or a combination of the two.

Our 1:1 programs naturally see the learner improve more quickly and effectively than those on group courses. As the student gets individual attention from a native German speaker, the teacher is able to adapt each lesson to work on that individual’s strengths and weaknesses.  For those companies needing to improve the German language skills of a number of employees we offer group courses.  In our group sessions learners enjoy a very interactive approach with activities focused around discussions and role plays to reflect the real life situations students face each day in their work and social interactions with German speakers outside of the sessions with their group.  Intensive weekly courses are also available, with up to 30 hours of training spread across the week for those needing to accelerate their language skills in a shorter time.

Location & Schedules

As the leading provider of language teachers in the UK, we have a vast network of experienced native-speaker teachers spread across the country. So wherever your business is located, we will be able to come to your office to carry out training at a time that suits you. We can arrange courses from 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday. Sessions are 90 minutes long, with students ideally attending at least once per week – and the days and times of training can be changed to fit around your business needs.

Or if you need to improve your German language skills quickly, try our intensive course! We do 6 hours per day (Monday-Friday) which can take place wherever suits you. Just speak with one of our advisers for more information about our German language intensive courses.

German Course Content

During our tailored language training courses, you will develop a clear understanding of German and how it can be applied in a number of situations, including presentations, business meetings and general conversation. No matter what your starting level, our experienced teachers will be able to improve your knowledge.

Our German language training courses are open to people of all standards and levels. So even if you have never spoken a single word in the language, our Direct Method of teaching and structured courses will help you to overcome any trepidation in the very first session. We have successfully helped thousands of people to master foreign languages from scratch and you could be next.

Companies sponsoring German language courses for employees will be provided with regular progress updates. You will also receive a complete course plan and profile of the teacher before training commences. We will assess your level before the course begins to find out areas we need to work on. From there we will provide all the materials needed for your course so all you have to do is turn up ready to learn. Support throughout your course is also provided by our dedicated multi-lingual team of Account Managers, ready to answer any queries you may have about the course or the progress of those attending.

German Language Examination Courses

We will also prepare you for any German examinations you wish to take and we are proud to say our students have a 95% pass rate. This success rate further underlines the value we place on working with expert German language teachers.

As part of our service, SIMON & SIMON will also organise the registration and administration of Italian examinations and the issuing of result certificates.

Assess Your German Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their German language trainer can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise German in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
