Swahili lessons of this type are broader and are aimed towards students with a variety of requirements. While all beginner level students will cover survival Swahili - needed for short visits to countries where English isn't widely spoken, or if you wish to 'go local'; those studying Swahili usually go in different directions at this point, depending on what they need. Those who have benefitted from these Swahili 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 Swahili culture, and those enthusiastic to pass a specific exam in Swahili.
These Swahili Lessons are intended for people who really need to learn Swahili to help make that difference in their work. For beginners, it will be useful to learn greetings and basic business etiquette, at higher levels reading and then writing become more important. Typical students include those involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where an additional language is required, and those working with international colleagues, academia and government. Even on our most basic lesson for Beginners, students should expect to end the lesson with basic Telephone Swahili and e-mail Swahili skills for communications as well as Survival Swahili required for short visits to a country.
2 or more people can benefit studying Swahili together as these Swahili lessons are also offered to groups (Two-to-One Swahili Lesson or Small Group In-Company Swahili Lesson). Every student must have the same degree of knowledge of the language, the same business or language needs and the ability to study at the same time and place as everybody else. The booking has to be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advocate group sessions of more than 6-8 people, though Taster Swahili Lessons can be experienced by up to 12 people.
