Our Afrikaans speakers, fully qualified to teach their native tongue, can train you and, if need be, the rest of your group at a time that is suitable to you, at your home or place of work. Sessions can take place on the day of your choosing - even weekends - and at the time you want: whether it be morning, afternoon or evening. If circumstances arise where your home or office is not convenient, the classes can be held at your trainer's office. Resources for the lesson are provided for you.
Afrikaans lessons of this type are broader and are aimed towards students with a variety of requirements. While all beginner level students will cover survival Afrikaans - needed for short visits to countries where English isn't widely spoken, or if you wish to 'go local'; those studying Afrikaans usually go in different directions at this point, depending on what they need. Those who have benefitted from these Afrikaans classes have been those investing in or buying property overseas, those married to overseas nationals, people setting off on a round-the-world trip, enthusiasts in Afrikaans culture, and those enthusiastic to pass a specific exam in Afrikaans.
Those who would benefit the most from these Afrikaans tutorials are those who feel they need to learn Afrikaans to help them out in their business lives. For starters, learning salutations and business etiquette is integral; once these have been practiced then reading and writing lessons can start. Typical studiers have been those involved in international import/export, negotiations and acquisitions, those in multinational companies requiring another language, and those working in any way with international governments and relevant administration. Just our simplest lesson for beginners will have students finishing the lessons with basic telephone and e-mail Afrikaans, as well as survival Afrikaans should a visit to the country be necessary.
Lessons in Afrikaans are also accessible for 2 or more studying in tandem (Two-to-One Afrikaans Lesson or Small Group In-Company Afrikaans Lesson). All those involved must have around the same experience of the language, similar needs of areas of proficiency, and must be able to work at the same time and place. Bookings must be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advise classes of more than 6-8 people, although In-Company Taster Afrikaans sessions can be run with as many as 12 people.
NewarkNewark is the largest city in the State of New Jersey, and with a population of 275,000 it is also the 64th most populous city in the United States. While Newark has a 'personality' all its own, it has also benefitted greatly from its close proximity to New York City (it is only a few short miles away). Newark Airport has become a hub for international air travel, which has pumped billions of dollars into the local economy. Newark has dedicated a considerable amount of its resources to becoming more eco-friendly in the 21st Century. Several of the biggest redevelopment projects in the city are being built using environmentally sound practices and will allow for solar power and the use sustainable materials. The Hispanic and Latino populations in Newark make up almost 30% of the demographic, with double digit percentages for Asian Americans from Korea, Viet Nam and China as well. Given the short distance from Manhattan and the international make up of the citizens, Newark is one of the most useful places on the eastern seaboard to learn a new language.
