Our native-speaking qualified Swahili teachers can guide you and your group at your work or at home, at a time convenient to you. Classes can take place on any day of the week - even weekends - morning, afternoon or evening. If needs be, if meeting at your office or home is not suitable, you can take your lessons at the trainer's office. Study materials are supplied for you.
These Swahili 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 Swahili by the end of their lesson, which will provide them with enough Swahili 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 Swahili culture and those who just wish to pass a particular Swahili exam.
Those who would benefit the most from these Swahili tutorials are those who feel they need to learn Swahili 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 Swahili, as well as survival Swahili should a visit to the country be necessary.
Lessons in Swahili are also accessible for 2 or more studying in tandem (Two-to-One Swahili Lesson or Small Group In-Company Swahili 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 Swahili sessions can be run with as many as 12 people.
