A language that opens doors for you to many countries and cultures worldwide, German is one of the most popular foreign languages in Europe. Whether you want to become bilingual, learn business German, or immerse yourself in Germany’s culture with its diverse range of music, literature and film, there is a course for you. From beginner survival German evening classes to intensive German lessons, CIEE offers a wide variety of individual and group language courses in London.
If you are an adult beginner, these ten-week evening courses will help you function at a basic everyday survival level and develop your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. You will also gain a greater knowledge of German culture and language through varied and engaging activities. The communicative approach actively dispenses with the more lecture-based learning environment typical of school and university, fostering a more active use of the language and encouraging you to become a confident and independent user.
During these lessons you will deepen your understanding of grammar constructs, modal verbs and adverbs, and learn to use more sophisticated sentence structures. You will learn how the order of words in a sentence shifts, depending on the time and place of the action. You will also study prepositions and other small words that may seem insignificant, but can have a major effect on meaning. In addition, you will learn how to recognise and use German numbers and dates. Upon completion of these two levels, you will be able to communicate in and understand German on many practical everyday matters. German lessons London
