You and your group can be trained by our native speaker qualified German teachers, and can meet at your place of work or home at a time convenient to you. Tutorials can take place any day of the week, including weekends, and can be scheduled for the morning, afternoon or evening. If your home or office is not suitable for you, you can attend the lesson at the teacher's offices. You will be provided with all relevant lesson materials.
These German lessons fit a broader spectrum, and can be useful for those who need different things from the language. Most beginner students will have a handle of survival German by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough German to communicate at least at a basic level during short trips to the country, but those who require more would benefit greatly from these sessions. Typical students have been those eager to travel all over the world, those buying overseas property, those with foreign spouses, aficionados of German culture and those who just wish to pass a particular German exam.
Those who would benefit the most from these German tutorials are those who feel they need to learn German 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 German, as well as survival German should a visit to the country be necessary.
Those wishing to learn German in groups of 2 or more together (Two-to-One German Lessons or Small Group In-Company German Lessons) can sign up for our group classes. All students must be at nearly the same level of German proficiency, must have the same needs from the language, and must be able to study at the same time and place as the others. Bookings must be made for all students simultaneously. Listen & Learn do not propose group sizes or more than 6-8 people, but In-Company Taster German Lessons can occur with up to 12 people.

Salt Lake CitySalt Lake City rose to prominence and the attention of the world in 2002 with their successful Winter Olympic games. In the international spotlight, Salt Lake City shone and has been a popular destination for a culturally, ethnically and religiously diverse population ever since. With the arrival of the cultures of the world comes the potential to learn the languages of the world; thus Salt Lake City is a prime location for language learners. The capital city of Utah and the 'Crossroads of the West', Salt Lake City has many Latino, Tongan, Samoan, Somali, Sudanese, Afghani, Bosnian, and Russian residents - and this is just a mere slice of the ethnic diversity to be found in Salt Lake City. There's so much potential in this land of opportunity!
