Your German Language Courses in Leeds

Learning a language cannot happen as quickly as snapping your fingers, even if where there is a will there is a way. Learning German with the quickest methods would require total language immersion, concentrated courses and incredible motivation.


To speak French or to learn German requires long-term work and self-dedication. While there are a few more commonly popular languages to learn such as French, Italian and Spanish, this doesn't mean that German language courses don't also have a very important purpose. German is one of the most commonly spoken languages in Europe and knowing the language proves to be a significant asset when looking for work. Plus, there are many countries and areas around the world speaking German that one might want to visit and do a language stay in one day.


From beginners to advanced learners, there are several ways to improve your language level and skills:

     

  • a classical language course in a language school (to learn tourist-friendly Italian, for example), usually taken in the form of group lessons, or evening classes with private tutors 
  • a language stay in a host family where the learner visits during vacation periods from their schooling, in the homes of people who are native German speakers 
  • by traveling abroad in another setting (an entire school year in Germany, teaching English as a foreign language, language travel, repeated language courses, language exchange...) to progress quickly and consolidate one's written comprehension 
  • intensive courses or an intensive exam preparation course 
  • conversation classes to refine your listening, comprehension and speaking skills 
  • individual courses with a native speaker in order to progress to the next level within a language center 
  • small group summer courses with an intensive format 
  • customized training via Skype (video conferencing) to help you reach bilingual language levels 
  • second-language lessons with conversations on the phone 
  • e-learning to learn German through online courses 
  • foreign language correspondence courses (distance courses) with an emphasis on grammar 
  • or, best of all, in-home tutoring with a private teacher, an ideal method to advance quickly and efficiently on your way to becoming bilingual

The Importance of Learning German in Leeds

Throughout the twentieth century, the UK has been increasing its emphasis on learning a foreign language in schools and post-graduation. And for good reason... according to a survey published by the European Commission, the British are the worst language learners in Europe!


62% of people surveyed can't speak another language apart from English, making only 38% able to speak a second language. This is compared to the European Union average of 56% who are able to speak a foreign language.


However, learning and knowing a second language is important for so many reasons! Such as:

     

  • Improving your cognitive skills: people who speak more than one language have improved memory, concentration, critical-thinking skills, problem-solving and multitasking abilities. To top it off, being bilingual can help stave off mental aging and cognitive decline as one ages. 
  • Connecting to others by speaking their own native language while travelling. Understanding other cultures and people can widen your horizons and perspectives. Making connections in your language courses and travels can build friendships for years to come. 
  • Advancing your career: language skills can be a competitive advantage during a job search. They are among the top 8 skills required by all occupations, no matter your sector or skill level. 
  • Improve your native language skills: learning a second language can even improve communication skills and multiply vocabulary in your first language!
  • Learn even more languages: research shows that once you have begun the journey to learning a second language, all language learning becomes easier, especially as a child. 
  • Boost your confidence: learning a new language can sometimes be a daunting task, but the act of trying and making mistakes and then succeeding goes a long way towards building confidence! Moving out of your comfort zone and seeing the progress you are making gives an amazing sense of accomplishment.

While this is not an exhaustive list, another important reason to learn a second language is it can help you with your future! According to the British Council's 2013 Languages for the Future report, which looks at which languages the UK needs most according to a variety of factors (economic, geopolitical, cultural and educational), a few languages top the list of being important to speak in the future, German being one of them!


At the top of the list of importance according to the report, Spanish, Mandarin, French, Arabic and German are significantly ahead of the next five languages, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese and Russian. Getting a head start on skills you might need in the future, while having fun and feeling accomplished sounds like a pretty good idea!

Superprof German Classes in Leeds

Whether you are an intermediate German speaker or otherwise, nothing beats in-home tutoring in Leeds as the best method to learn and advance in the Goethe language.


Memorization, idiomatic expressions, oral fluency, grammar exercises: if you want to find quality language teaching and a linguistic immersion with rapid progression, look no further than our tutors on Superprof.


Learning a foreign language is very different from simply getting tutoring help with homework from a private teacher. Each language course is a complete lesson in its own right, with total immersion in the language of your choice.


If this is a very effective method for the tudesque language, we could say the same even for learning the English language, the language of Shakespeare is much more demanding than one might think.


Taking beginner German courses are a must to be able to say one day: "I am bilingual English-German speaker", and not only for the benefits it offers when looking for and applying to jobs! So, the next time you're considering taking  intensive German courses, hopefully the first option that jumps to mind will be to work with an in-home private tutor.


Your shortcomings will gradually disappear throughout your courses when combined with a stay abroad in a Germanic country or an internship/study abroad, enabling you to immerse yourself in German culture and practice pronouncing your words correctly.
