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 in establishing lucrative business partnerships as addressing your clients in their native language. That's where we step in to help. We offer bespoke German language training at your London office and online tailored to achieving your company's objectives.
Having been educated at RWTH Aachen, the London School of Economics (LSE) and the University of Oxford, I have over 25 years of experience in teaching corporate clients tailored to their industry- in 1:1 German 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, and I have grown my own business into one of the UK's leading providers of German language lessons with 5-star reviews on Google and Trustpilot and a team of excellent native tutors with at least 10 years of teaching experience. Our former and current clients include banks, consultancies, IT and law firms, as well as software and technology companies, such as Bloomberg, Chartwell, Deutsche Finance, Erste Bank, Facebook, and Palantir Technologies.

Why you should work with us- the corporate German lessons specialists
Alvar de W., Bregal Investments
I am taking weekly corporate lessons to improve my German language for a year now. I am pleased with my progress and 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.
Jess G., Pembroke
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.
Chris E., Deutsche Bank
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.
