You and your group can be trained by our native speaker qualified Afrikaans 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.
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.
Afrikaans lessons of this type are aimed towards those that need to learn Afrikaans to aid them with their employment. For those just starting out, it is integral to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and reading and writing can be adopted once the simple precepts are out of the way. Success has come from students who are involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, those seeking jobs in multinational companies, and those working with foreign colleagues, academia and bureaucracy. Just our most basic beginners lesson will have the student finishing the lesson with basic telephone/e-mail skills in Afrikaans, as well as survival Afrikaans should a short stay in the country be needed.
Those wishing to learn Afrikaans in groups of 2 or more together (Two-to-One Afrikaans Lessons or Small Group In-Company Afrikaans Lessons) can sign up for our group classes. All students must be at nearly the same level of Afrikaans 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 Afrikaans Lessons can occur with up to 12 people.
