Whether you have experience or are a complete novice when it comes to speaking German our courses are tailored around the student’s previous experience and future goals. Our clients are consistently satisfied with our German teachers and reliably give excellent feedback. Before a student starts their German language course they will be equipped with a profile on the background and experience of their German teacher.

If your German Language experience only consists from what you have learnt from school, you will find that teaching approaches to modern language training have changed dramatically in recent years – it is now a lot more enjoyable and a considerably more beneficial experience.

Your German Language sessions will be conducted almost entirely in German, an approach known as the Communicative Approach. You will find yourself making considerable progress from the very first lesson and will soon find yourself confident enough to communicate in a variety of social and business situations.

In depth: Our German Courses for Business in London

1:1 and Group German Courses in London

Our German language courses can be run on a 1 to 1 basis or in group sessions. While most of our clients prefer to offer 1:1 German training to their employees, group sessions can be good value and gives you an opportunity to test your German language skills against others. However, group sessions should be kept to 6 or less so each student gets an adequate amount of attention. Group German Language courses require the full commitment of those attending. If you are in need of faster progress, 1 to 1 German language courses in London are more suitable as the lessons and course can be fully tailored to the student’s strengths and weaknesses.

One of our highly experienced Account Managers oversees the running of each SIMON & SIMON German Language course and our entire team of Account Managers are multi-lingual.

This is followed by a Progress Report for every 40 hours of training that is completed. You will also receive a list of invaluable weblinks to language learning resources.

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 London

Not only is London the capital of the United Kingdom and of England, it is also the largest urban zone in the European Union and the largest metropolitan areas in the UK.

The history of this mammoth city goes back to the Roman era. They founded a city called Londinium and in the City of London – at the centre of modern London – you can see hte square-mile medieval boundaries remaining to this day. Modern London as we know it – which includes the metropolitan area around that central Ancient core governed by the elected Mayor of London and the London Assembly – has been known as such since at least the 19th century.

Today, London is one of the largest financial centres in the world along with New York, and houses over 100 of the 500 biggest companies in Europe. It has the highest city GDP in Europe and is a forerunner in arts, commerce, entertainment, fashion, professional services, healthcare, media, research, education, tourism and transport.

Its tourist industry in particular is significant, with the city’s five international airports bringing in the most number of visitors than any other city in the world. There is no city with a busier airspace, and no airpot busier in terms of international passengers than Heathrow Airport.

The city has 43 universities, making it centre of knowledge as that is the greatest concentration of tertiary education institutions in Europe.

It was also the first city to host the Summer Olympics three times.

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 in London 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.
