CIEE offers a variety of German classes for all levels. From beginners survival German to professional presentation classes, these courses are designed around your specific goals and will teach you the language that you need to achieve them. Group classes offer a fun and interactive way to learn with a new group of friends, while intensive lessons are full-day deep dives into the language. Once you complete your course in London, your modules can be transferred to a CIEE campus abroad or anywhere else in the world where CIEE offers German classes (see below).
For the beginner, bespoke one-to-one lessons with a native tutor are a great option for getting started in German. They provide a lot of structure and repetition as you work on grammar, new vocabulary and listening. They also focus on developing confidence with the German language through frequent speaking practice.
These ten-week evening classes are taught at various levels, from complete beginner to proficiency. They are run by UCL Centre for Languages & International Education and focus on improving your communication skills, rather than on learning the language as it is used in academic contexts.
Juliane is a fantastic German teacher who takes a very structured approach to her lessons. Each lesson starts with a review of the previous grammar point, and then moves onto new material. She also explains things in detail and provides additional videos on certain points. She makes a point of correcting your mistakes and answering your questions as you interact with her through the videos. German lessons London
