Averaging 15 years of experience, SIMON & SIMON have native speaker teachers conducting German language courses for professionals and individuals across the UK.

The Communicative Approach

No matter what your language level or experience, our teachers will design a course based around you. Your bespoke course will be created around your skills, knowledge and goals.

At SIMON & SIMON, we try to make your sessions as fun and rewarding as possible, helping learners to retain their new skills. We use a technique called The Communicative Approach. We conduct almost your entire lesson in German, immersing you into the language. We have found that by using this approach our students have made progress from their very first session.

In depth: Our German Courses for Business in Leeds

1:1 and Group German Courses in Leeds

Our bespoke courses can be run as group or 1:1 sessions. Group sessions are excellent value for money and the participants can help each other outside of the structured lessons. However, we do recommend no more than 6 candidates per group session otherwise the teacher will not be able to offer the individual support which might be required. 1:1 sessions can be tailored to the individual’s specific needs, addressing their particular strengths and weaknesses.

German Course Management

SIMON & SIMON’s German language courses are run by a highly experienced, multi-lingual Account Manager. Your personal Account Manager will oversee the running of your course and they will send you a profile on your trainer at the start of your course. After that you will receive a Course Plan, course materials and a progress report after every 30-40 hours of training.

German Course Locations & Schedules

At SIMON & SIMON, we have a global network of language trainers that can run courses in almost any major city across Europe. Most of our clients prefer to have their course within their own offices, but we can also run courses within your own home or at one of our residential locations. For more information about our residential courses, please contact one of our team.

Leeds German Course Schedules

In Leeds, we run courses throughout the year. Our sessions are 90 minutes long and most students attend at least one per week with the option to do more sessions if required. Our teachers are available Monday – Friday between 8 am and 6pm. Weekend sessions can be arranged on request. We can also run intensive courses, which are 30 hours per week (6 hours a day Monday – Friday) at either our residential centre or at your offices.

German Course Content

The content of your German course will be designed around the levels and objectives of the specific learner. We use a simple system to determine your language level. We will also discuss with you what you want to achieve from your course and what particular area of the German language you want to focus on. Our highly experienced German teachers have helped people with a wide range of skills, from complete beginners to experienced speakers. You may want to focus on improving your German for meetings, discussions and negotiations, or to concentrate on improving your listening comprehension, pronunciation and telephone skills. Whatever your needs, our experienced teachers can create a bespoke course that will help you improve your German skills.

German Language Examination Courses

SIMON & SIMON can also help prepare you for your German examinations. We are proud to be able to say that our students have a 95% pass rate in language examinations, and their success further underlines the value we place on working with German teachers in Leeds with above average experience. As part of our service, SIMON & SIMON will also organise the registration and administration of German examinations and the issuing of result certificates.

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 Leeds

Leeds is a city and metropolitan borough in West Yorkshire, England. In 2001 Leeds’ main urban subdivision had a population of 443,247, while the entire city had a population of 770,800 (2008 est.). Leeds is the cultural, financial and commercial heart of the West Yorkshire Urban Area, which at the 2001 census had a population of 1.5 million, and the Leeds city region, an economic area with Leeds at its core, had a population of 2.9 million.

Leeds is the UK’s largest centre for business, legal, and financial services outside London. Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Leeds can trace its recorded history to fifth century when the Kingdom of Elmet was covered by the forest of “Loidis”, the origin of the name Leeds. The name has been applied to many administrative entities over the centuries. It changed from being the appellation of a small manorial borough, in the 13th century, through several incarnations, to being the name attached to the present metropolitan borough.

In the 17th and 18th centuries Leeds became a major centre for the production and trading of wool. Then, during the Industrial Revolution, Leeds developed into a major industrial centre; wool was still the dominant industry but flax, engineering, iron foundries, printing and other industries were important.

From being a compact market town in the valley of the River Aire in the 16th century Leeds expanded and absorbed the surrounding villages to become a populous urban centre by the mid-20th century.
