The GERMAN ACADEMY for Business

We teach your employees

German language and business culture 

so they can integrate,

be more efficient and become a greater asset to your company 

Does this resonate with you?

 

  • Your employees are highly trained but they don’t know enough German to communicate clearly or understand all the details of what is required from them?

  • They are highly motivated but lack an understanding of German business culture?

  • They are willing to give their best but lack confidence, cannot contribute fully in meetings, or represent your company professionally? 

 

We at SimplyGerman have been teaching German language and business culture to employees in large London-based companies for over 20 years.

 

Established 1999, we are one of London’s most respected language schools. 

 

Trusted by these companies

We are now offering our teaching expertise in an online programme: 

SimplyGerman's ACADEMY

Our Online Academy consists of a variety of high quality, interactive teaching videos, grouped into various units:

Teaching videos on:

  • how to introduce yourself in a business situation

  • how to make small talk with colleagues at the office

  • German business culture

  • how to use formal vocabulary specifically for business meetings

  • and more

 

All videos contain interactive exercises where students get to speak and practice what they’ve learned right inside the videos.

Arbeitswelt

A great number of dedicated grammar videos on all the topics that students typically need help with, ranging in difficulty from beginners to advanced.

Topics such as

  • word order

  • the accusative case

  • modal particles

  • subordinating conjunctions...

With exercise sections for speaking practice.

 

Plus downloadable  written exercises.

Grammar

Teaching modern, authentic German, showing students how German is actually spoken - at real speed, with colloquial expressions.

 

The teaching videos then "decode" and explain the language used and practice newly learned words and expression right inside the video. This helps students make the leap to understanding “real” German. 

Plus, written transcripts  and written exercises.

Film Clips

Monthly group lessons via skype with an experienced native German teacher. These classes are included at no additional cost.

In these live classes students have a chance to

  • practice speaking

  • increase fluency and confidence

  • chat to a native speaker and interact with each other 

  • ask their questions

  • improve their pronunciation

 

The classes also provide accountability as well as support for the students to ensure they continue their own regular learning online.
