Learning German and finding tutors

Why learn German?

More and more people want to learn German, a Germanic language spoken mainly in Central Europe. It is the 12th most widely spoken language in the world and is famous for its wide range of specific vocabulary, which makes native speakers in demand all over the world. In addition, German culture attracts many travellers, which makes German lessons even more popular.

Online tuition is also a very common option and you don't need to go all the way to Germany to be transported into German culture. With globalisation and technology, you will be able to contact many native German tutors and study the language online without any problems.

Types of German lessons

If you are unsure about which is the best way to study German, we have identified some popular options to help you decide. Remember: there are many ways to take German lessons, the key is to know which learning style is best for you.

  • Private German lessons: if you are looking for a private environment and a German tutor who will create a teaching method that is tailored to your needs, private tuition for German is ideal for you.
  • German lessons for groups: This is the most common way to learn German, as even the shyest students are encouraged to speak and participate in teamwork. In general, group German lessons are the preferred option for those who want to learn German at a language school.

How to learn German

No matter how you choose to learn German, each method will help you improve your German and reach your language goals. Here are some ways to learn German:

  • German language schools: The most traditional method which is suitable for those who prefer to learn by levels. Tuition centres are also ideal for people who need to pass an exam or study over a longer period of time.
  • Private tuition: A good alternative for students who prefer personalised German lessons. A private German tutor can focus on your needs only, unlike in a tuition centre. Private tuition is also a great option for those who need to clarify specific questions or prepare for an exam.
  • German exchange programme: For those who want to immerse themselves in the culture, the best option is an exchange programme. However, we recommend that you brush up on the basic vocabulary and grammar with some German lessons.

How long does it take to learn German?

The time it takes to learn German will depend on the amount of previous contact a person has had with the German language or culture. English speakers, for example, will find it easier to learn German because of the similarity of the languages. It is also necessary to dedicate yourself to learning a new language: people who practise constantly will master the language more quickly than those who limit their learning to one hour of German lessons a week.

According to the CEFR, the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, the average time to learn German is 6 months for each language level, from A1 to C2.

I want to take German lessons, how do I choose a tutor?

Your private German tutor should fit into your routine, so it is important that you consider a few things to help you make your choice. If you have gotten this far, you should already know which type of German lessons are right for you as well as whether you want to do an exchange programme, private tuition or enrol in a language school. To find a tutor, use the filters on the page:

  • Language level: If you already have a certain level of German, you will need highly qualified tutors. This step is so important that most language schools have free tests to find out what level you are at. If you already know your level, you can go directly to a tutor.
  • Location: Finding tutors and German classes in London or Manchester will be much easier than finding them in small towns or rural areas. So, when finding tutors, ask yourself if there are German tutors near you or if online tuition is the best option.
  • Availability: Check the availability of the private tutors, as having matching timetables is essential for finding the right tutor for you. If you choose a language school, the timetables are usually fixed.

Duration of the German lessons: An intensive German course may be the best option if you are preparing for an exchange or an official exam with a fixed date. Think carefully about how much time you have to dedicate to German lessons when finding tutors or courses.
