Our German Group Courses

Are you ready to speak German, make new friends and thrive in an exuberant classroom environment? 


Join GermanMind’s group courses where our experienced native teachers use interactive language teaching methods and high quality educational resources to deliver unparalleled learning for all students. 
Whether you are a beginner, at intermediate level or are advanced in the language, we have group courses to cater for all levels, with eight students maximum per classroom, as we believe small classes = big progress! 
Working in pairs, your native German teacher will focus on four key language skills: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. You will also study grammar and extend your vocabulary through class interaction, homework and extracurricular activities such as watching a German movie, or listening to some German radio. 


You will be speaking German on your first day in class, and will continue to improve your pronunciation and confidence in the language by being encouraged to speak daily and do small tasks like writing your shopping list in German, or sending a text to a friend. 

Not sure what German level you are? No problem. We offer a FREE language placement test when you book a course with us. 100% of students would recommend GermanMind to a friend, start your language journey today!
 

we have the right German course for you!

GermanMind, like many other language schools, splits levels in half to accommodate students’ time and budget planning and follow the guidelines of the CEFR. If you have a question on any of our group courses, or unsure what level you may be, please send us an email.
