German Language Training and Business German Courses in London and Online
German language training in London and online tailored to your company's objectives
Whether your company is already doing business with German-speaking clients or looking to expand into Germany, Austria or Switzerland, research has shown that communicating in English is not nearly as effective as addressing your clients in their native language. And now with Brexit, the need for German language skills will only increase in the years to come.
Having been educated at RWTH Aachen, the London School of Economics (LSE) and the University of Oxford, I have over 20 years of experience teaching German to business clients tailored to their industry- in one-to-one tuition, group lessons and seminar formats. Since I founded Olesen Tuition in 2015, I have build a reputation with helping corporate clients achieve their goals in the German language in a shorter period of time than any of my competitors. My clients include banks, consultancies, IT and law firms, as well as software and technology companies, such as Bloomberg, Chartwell, Deutsche Finance, Facebook, and Palantir Technologies.

I am taking weekly corporate lessons to improve my German language for a year now. I am pleased with my progress the professional lessons Jens is giving. The lessons are tailored to my level, business requirements and profession, which is very helpful. The flexibility Jens is able to provide works well in combination with my job. Lastly, the lessons and discussions we have are good fun. Would definitely recommend for corporate clients.

I needed to learn German quickly for my new job and many institutions I found online were very expensive and also inflexible in terms of location, timings, and syllabus. I have studied languages before so I have considerable experience with language courses and tutors. Jens was extremely helpful in understanding my own personal needs and tailoring our sessions to ensure I achieved my own goals and those of my employer. He worked to my timetable and came to my office each week. He is a fantastic teacher; he is patient but strict and incredibly friendly and helpful. His approach obviously works as I have reached B1 level from complete scratch in less than a year. So far it has been a pleasure to work with Jens.

Jens is a really good tutor, I'm really glad I found him. He helped me learn German quickly for work, and was very supportive and professional throughout. Highly recommended.
