German courses London are aplenty, whether you are a beginner wanting to get your feet wet in the language or an advanced student wishing to hone your grammar skills and learn more sophisticated vocabulary. Private individual tutorials are available from a wide range of tutors – usually students who study the language as part of their studies and native or bilingual German expats. These tutors are usually available by the hour and their rates depend on their level of proficiency and your own language abilities.
Intensive German courses are also on offer and are suitable for those who want to make rapid progress or those who have a particular deadline in mind. These courses involve a higher number of classes per week and are designed to provide a more immersive learning experience, with more emphasis placed on communication in the language.
There are several different levels of German courses available, from A1.1, which is suited to complete beginners, right through to C2+, which is considered mastery of the language. These are often referred to as the Common European Framework levels and are used to determine your ability to speak, read, write and understand the language.
German is the most widely spoken language in Europe and has 95 million native speakers worldwide. It is an official language of Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland and is a minority language in Northern Italy and the Alsace region of France. It is also the language of literature and music, producing some of the most influential books, plays and poetry in history – including the Bible printed by Gutenberg, the first mass-produced book in Europe. There are many opportunities to learn the language in London, from specialised schools like the Goethe Institut to German clubs and language groups and more informal settings such as local restaurants.
