Our German classes don't adhere to a term-based or fixed-week structure. Rather, classes continue for as long as our students desire (excluding holidays), progressing from one level to another. Students work with us until they achieve their language goals, whether that means being conversational or even fluent in the language. Our commitment is to provide a dynamic and personalised learning journey tailored to your preferences and aspirations.

If you're unsure about your current level, we recommend arranging a free assessment with us. Please note that while assessments are complimentary, you need to commit to trial class to secure your assessment slot. All our courses can be joined after their official start date, if clients have the appropriate level. And if you cannot find a course at time that suits you, just contact us to express your interest and join our waiting list. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Online German Courses

Online German courses vs. in-person German classes in London

Some language learners are concerned that online German courses might be less effective than traditional in-person classes. Based on our first-hand experience as German tutors for many years, we are convinced that when it comes to effectiveness, the medium of instruction is not the decisive factor. Our online German courses offer an immersive and interactive learning experience comparable to in-person classes. Leveraging advanced technologies, our virtual classrooms foster real-time engagement, personalised attention, and dynamic interactions. You get the same expert guidance from native tutors with years of experience, ensuring a high-quality educational journey. So, in the end, it is simply a atter of personal preference.

How we organise our German classes for optimal learning

In our German courses, we prioritise an intimate class size to provide ample opportunities for honing spoken German and enhancing listening comprehension. Each session is designed to be engaging, striking a balance between enjoyable learning experiences and comprehensive language development. Structured around intriguing texts spanning various topics, our classes aim to enrich your vocabulary and bolster your confidence in using the language. We firmly believe in making language learning both enjoyable and thorough, ensuring that each class contributes to your overall linguistic proficiency.

Recognising the pivotal role of grammar in language acquisition, we dedicate time in every session to cover essential topics. Starting with the foundational aspects of German word order, we progress to delve into the intricacies of the four cases, prepositions, and adjective endings. Over the years, our grammar training has proven highly effective, earning our students commendations for their proficiency in German. For a deeper insight into our teaching methodology and grammar explanations, explore our German language blog "Auf Deutsch, bitte!". Further details about our approach are available on our website.

Reviews of our German classes London

Lucie D.

"Jens is an amazing teacher, very passionate and enthusiastic, and always happy to answer your questions. I started the course 3 months before moving to Berlin and I am now using everything we have learned, it has been so useful!"

Laura K.

"Attended the group classes for about a year before moving to Berlin and it was the best decision ever. I'm now able to find my way around and I can easily build on the knowledge I already have. Doing evening classes can be tough sometimes but it was always fun with Jens as he has a great attitude towards teaching and he always has his inventive ways how to exlain the grammar. Thanks, Jens!"

Rueben C.

"Jens is a brilliant teacher. Knowledgable yet funny, professional yet easygoing. He actually makes learning German fun! I only had lessons for a few months before moving to Germany. However, in that time Jens helped me build a solid foundation in German. If my next tutor is half as good as Jens I'll be happy."
