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.
German was primarily a written language with differing dialects according to region, until the 1800s
German uses the same 26 letters as English, with the addition of three vowels with 'Umlaut's (ä, ö and ü) and ß, ('Eszett' or 'sharp s').
German nouns change form depending on how they are used - there are three genders, four cases and both singular and plural, making a maximum of 24 different forms per noun
"The German course is going great. German is a very difficult language - I didn't think I would be able to understand the grammar, but it is starting to make sense! Susanne has been a great teacher. She has so much patience and we actually have fun during our time together. "
