Whether you need to brush up on your German before an Oktoberfest trip or are looking to improve your business German, there are plenty of courses and tutors in London. But finding the right one for you can be challenging. To help, we’ve put together this list of the top German courses London.
For those who don’t want to commit to a full course, there are a number of free online resources that offer German lessons and exercises. Some of these are subscription-based but others such as Babbel and Rocket Languages (which offers a free trial) are available to anyone. Of course, the quality of these sites will vary and they certainly won’t replace a private German tutor but they can be good for familiarising yourself with the basics of the language.
The other alternative is to take a German evening class in London. Many of these are led by native speakers and provide the regular, structured lessons needed to become bilingual.
There are a wide variety of German evening classes in London including those at the German House, a centre for Anglo-German cultural exchange in Marylebone, and those organised by the German Embassy or the Goethe Institute. Alternatively, you could join a group like the German MeetUp, which has more than 5,000 members and meets up in various locations across London every first Sunday of the month.
For those who are looking to make fast progress, there are super intensive German courses in London that run over a short period of time. These are usually held in small groups and focus on the most common conversations. You might also consider a business German course with a specialist. Jurgen Zollner and Associates, for example, is dedicated to teaching Business German and delivers classes in either intensive sessions or over a set period of time. German courses London
