German Courses for Business in Bristol

Both professionals and non-professionals in Bristol have benefited from a SIMON & SIMON German Language Course. At SIMON & SIMON, we have a pool of qualified German teachers who are native speakers with an average of 15 years’ experience.

The Communicative Approach

Our teachers tailor a course around your specific needs so that you will improve from day 1, regardless of your language proficiency.

Over recent years, language training has changed enormously. We now adopt a teaching method called the Communicative Approach, which is more fun for the student and much more rewarding. Our sessions are conducted almost entirely in German, immersing you into the language from your first session. Whether you are looking to improve your business or social language skills, our training courses are designed around you, so you get the best results.

In depth: Our German Courses for Business in Bristol

1:1 and Group German Courses in Bristol

Our German language sessions can be conducted as either 1:1 or group lessons. The majority of our clients select 1:1 German training as this will allow us to tailor the course around them, and therefore focus on their weaknesses. Those learning German in Bristol on a 1:1 basis will naturally make much faster progress. However, with careful planning, group sessions can be great value for money. As long as there is a real commitment from the participants to get together at the same time every week and help each other outside the taught sessions, the group will make good progress. We strongly recommend you keep group numbers to 6 or less for these types of courses to be successful.

German Course Management

At SIMON & SIMON, we assign an Account Manager that will oversee the running of your German course. All of our Account Managers are highly experienced, multi-lingual managers. Before the course start, your Account Manager will send you a profile on your German teacher along with course materials, a course plan and useful links to learning resources. Once the course is running a Progress Report is provided every 30 or 40 hours.

German Course Locations & Schedules

With a global network of language trainers, a German language course can be held in almost any major city throughout Europe and elsewhere. We can arrange German language courses in your home, or as many of our clients prefer, in your offices. Full-time residential German language courses are also available, for more information please contact our office on 020 7821 0999.

Bristol German Course Schedules

Our Bristol courses are run throughout the year. We ask all our students to attend at least one 90 minute session per week, but we can run more if your work commitments allow. We can also run weekend courses if that suits you better. Our weekday courses are available between 8am – 6pm, weekend times may vary. Our intensive German courses are run either at your premises or in one of our residential centres. They are 30 hours per week, 6 hours a day, Monday to Friday.

German Course Content

The course content is customised to your skills, goals and requirements. Before we start your course we will speak with you to find out what you are looking to achieve from the course. Whether you want to improve your German for social conversations or business purposes, our teachers will be able to help. Using this information we can create a bespoke course that will help you improve your German skills quickly and efficiently.

SIMON & SIMON also assists in preparation for language examinations. Our 95% pass rate for language examinations is a reflection of the high standard of teaching that our German teachers in Bristol maintain. Registration for and administration of German examinations, along with the issuing of results certificates are all provided by SIMON & SIMON.

About German

German is a West Germanic language and is spoken natively by about 100 million people, making it the most widely spoken native language in the European Union. A considerable number of German words have derived from Latin and Greek, with a few words also descending from French and English language. German is a pluricentric language, meaning multiple countries have their own standardised variants of the language including, Austrian German and Swiss Standard German. German is spoken as a second language by approximately 80 million people and is the most commonly spoken language in some states of America after English. German language has the same alphabet as English language except for an additional letter which is “ß” this letter is a consonant which is used as a double-S (SS) sound and is called an “eszett” or “sharp S”. German language had the opportunity to be the native language of the United States, but English was chosen over German by only one vote. German language has some very similar words to English language, for example, their translation of jogging is joggen.

About Bristol

Bristol is a city, unitary authority area and ceremonial county in South West England, with an estimated population of 433,100 for the unitary authority in 2009, and a surrounding Larger Urban Zone (LUZ) with an estimated 1,006,600 residents, it is England’s sixth, and the United Kingdom’s eighth most populous city, one of the group of English Core Cities and the most populous city in South West England.

Bristol received a Royal Charter in 1155 and was granted County status in 1373. From the 13th century, for half a millennium, it ranked amongst the top three English cities after London, alongside York and Norwich, on the basis of tax receipts, until the rapid rise of Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester during the Industrial Revolution in the latter part of the 18th century. It borders the counties of Somerset and Gloucestershire and is also located near the historic cities of Bath to the south east and Gloucester to the north. The city is built around the River Avon, and it also has a short coastline on the Severn Estuary, which flows into the Bristol Channel. Bristol is the largest centre of culture, employment and education in the region. Its prosperity has been linked with the sea since its earliest days.

The commercial Port of Bristol was originally in the city centre before being moved to the Severn Estuary at Avonmouth; Royal Portbury Dock is on the western edge of the city boundary.
