Learn to speak German with the help of a native speaker

All you need to know about taking German Lessons in Edinburgh

German is one of the most studied foreign languages at school and in higher education, but you don't have to be a school student to sign up for German classes! Of course, private tuition is great to support you throughout the GCSE or A-Level curriculum but you can also be a professional, middle-aged person who wants to learn a new skill! And private lessons are surely the way to do this when you are no longer in education.

If you are an older learner, you might be interested to know (or perhaps you already know and this is what drew you to it!) that speaking German increases your job opportunities in your own country but also abroad. There are so many German-speaking countries, as we'll see below, so being a German speaker will definitely be an attractive skill on your CV.

Having this language under your belt also means that travel to Germany or other German-speaking countries is made much easier. You speak the language, you can communicate and enjoy your stay while also making friends with the locals.

And even though many people in Germany do admittedly speak English fluently, it seems rude to just let them get on with it and not even make an effort to speak to them in their own language, doesn't it?

About the German Language

German is descended from a Germanic dialect and is officially spoken in Germany but also Austria, Liechtenstein, some parts of Belgium, Luxembourg, Brazil (yep, it's not just Portuguese there!), Poland, Romania, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy and, believe it or not, Namibia!

Add to these 100 million speakers another 100 million learners of German and now you can start to picture how this language is such a big and important language on our continent and globally!

German and Edinburgh

It may surprise you to know that Scotland and Germany share very strong links with one another. Trade links the two of them, on the one hand, but also culture is another area where they share similarities.

In terms of academia, the two countries have a lot in common with Germany being Scotland's biggest research partner in Europe, and the leading universities share ties.

Even Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister, has confirmed that Scotland has a strong relationship with Germany and is keen to keep developing that cultural bond. Another Scottish politician who advocates the relations between the two countries is Angus Robertson of the Scottish National Party, or SNP, who speaks fluent German after his German-born mother moved to Edinburgh.

Learn German in Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh offers German courses for beginners and more, and you can find further Modern Foreign Language courses at Edinburgh College.

If it's private courses you are after, you can find more tailored courses at InLingua Edinburgh or by choosing another independent teaching establishment.

Of course, one of the best ways to advance in German is to hire a language tutor, which you can do via Superprof!

German courses in Edinburgh: find a tutor quickly with Superprof!

You don't have to sit up late at night reading through German textbooks or printing out documents - if you hire a tutor they can set out a proper programme of study for you and show you what you should be doing in order to learn in the most sensible and natural way. You can't run before you can walk, so you should take the advice from a tutor on learning the basics of German first before progressing to the more complicated grammar and vocabulary lessons.

A German tutor will quickly assess your level and set you tasks to help you reach your goal step by step. They might also suggest doing some extra 'homework' such as finding a German group near you so that you can socialise with German speakers and pick up the language in a relaxed setting from true native speakers.

Even if this isn't part of their process, it might be an idea to ask around in your community to see if anyone wants to change lessons for free - some people love to practice their English by speaking to Brits in England so you could both benefit from it and build a new friendship!
