GERMAN Lessons

German Lessons in Philadelphia

Our native-speaking qualified German 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.

The type of courses we offer:

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) General German

This set of German tutorials are less specific and more targeted at those who want to get a range of different things from learning German. Even though all novice students will cover survival German: enough German to make a visit to the country or make good contacts with the locals, but what do you do from there? It depends on your needs. Those who have benefitted from these lessons have been those moving or investing overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people who love to travel all over the world, those interested in German culture, and those who just want to pass a specific examination in German.

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) Business German

These lessons in German are meant for those that feel that learning German would make a change in their work. For starters, it is expedient to learn how to say hello/goodbye, as well as basic business protocol; once the basics have been mastered, reading and writing come to the fore. Students who have greatly benefitted have been involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where another language is required, and those working in the international academia and government circuits. Even on our most fundamental beginner's lesson, students can anticipate ending the lesson with basic telephone German and e-mail German skills for communicating, as well as survival German if a short visit to the country is needed.

Face-to-Face Closed (Private) Group General or Business German

Lessons in German are also accessible for 2 or more studying in tandem (Two-to-One German Lesson or Small Group In-Company German 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 German sessions can be run with as many as 12 people.

Eisbär - Grauzone

Grauzone is a great band for German language learners because of their slow cadence and clear pronunciation. Also, they have hits for everyone: whether you like rock, pop, or blues, you’ll find something to your tastes. Taking one example, the song Eisbär describes a man who wants to become a polar bear and gives all the reasons while he’d like to be this wild animal. Curious, right? It’s a brilliant track to learn the conditional tense (as the man describes hypothetical situations) and vocabulary about wild animals, such as claws (Krallen), growls (Knurrt), or fur (Pelz).
