German

Learn German — Courses In London

German is one the most wide spoken languages in the world with nearly 80 million native speakers across Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland. German and English come from the same family of Germanic languages and some of the oldest English words can be traced back to German origins but some modern day German words still feature in every day English including for example, 'waltz', 'dachshund', and 'doppelgänger'.

At City Lit we offer German language learning classes delivered through a communicative approach that emphasises speaking and listening skills through interactive classroom based learning.
