German in London
German is one of the top 10 languages spoken worldwide, with more than 220 billion speakers, and 60,000 of them live in London according to the 2011 Census. Also, there are many German and Austrian companies based in the city, such as the German Motor Company or INEOS, so knowing the language will certainly broaden your professional horizons. Taking German classes in London is an excellent way to explore this influential culture, make the most of your travels to German-speaking countries and improve your relations with German business partners. Get in contact with us at Language Trainers to start with your German classes. We specialise in designing flexible courses that adapt to your skills, requirements and schedule.
Why Study German in London
For Culture: London, as the capital, is a central hub for cultures around the world and one of the best places in the U.K. to experience German culture. For example, the city hosts its own annual Oktoberfest, bringing both the German and local community together to celebrate the icons of German culture: its beer and food. Or you can also attend some of the many events organised by the British-German Association on Belgrave Square, an institution that since 2005 has been promoting mutual understanding and friendship between the UK and Germany. For example, you can go to the annual concert that celebrates the birth of Victoria and Albert. The lyrics of the music are both in English and German, so this will be helpful to develop your listening skills even further.
For Work: The benefits of learning German are not limited to culture. Germany has the biggest economy of the EU, and the fourth-largest worldwide. The country is the UK’s second-largest trading partner, importing over $46.6 billion worth of shipments in 2017, according to United Nations data. Taking German courses in London, then, will allow you to make the most out of the international opportunities available in the city. For example, you can contact the German British Chamber of Commerce on Buckingham Gate. This institution helps anyone with an interest in opening a company in Germany and has a database of professional opportunities for those who are job seeking. German corporations such as Lidl and Adidas are huge employers in London, and studying the language will give you the freedom to fully explore the possibilities offered by the German markets.
For Social: Professional opportunities aside, you can also find opportunities to make friends who share your passion for the German language. For example, you can join the London German Language MeetUp Group with more than 5,000 members. This group is intended for people who don’t have anyone to practise with and who share a passion for the language, so why not join them every first Sunday of the month? It is free to attend, and they welcome beginners. Then, you can go for some delicious German food at some of the many traditional restaurants available in London. Some places such as Kamps bakery on Tottenham Court and Herman Ze German on Old Compton St are favourites among food lovers for their authentic strudel and currywurst. Impress your friends with your German pronunciation when ordering these dishes!
