What the students say...
"Dear Barbara, I just wanted to thank you and Sonja for soldiering on during this horrendous time. I know it is so very difficult to remain enthusiastic and motivated at the moment and having the lessons and indeed your newsletter brings much needed reminders of normality. Having Indy’s mind expanded and being able to continue learning German has made such a difference. Huge thank you and stay healthy." (1 April 2020)
Fiona MacPhail, (daughter Indy started in February once a week and currently takes two lessons a week during lockdown)
"In my studies I have attended many language schools and have had many private tutors. None were anywhere near as good as at German Tuition. I chose to work with several different instructors and what amazed me was how every single one was simply fantastic. Each struck the perfect balance between encouraging and rigorous. They each came in with a class plan tailored to my exact needs but were each flexible enough to change that on-the-fly whenever I was having difficulty with a particular concept or activity. In addition to in-class activities, our lessons included multiple museum visits and other outings that allowed me to speak German in a variety of “real world” contexts. German Tuition coordinated everything flawlessly and was simply a pleasure to work with. I recommend most highly for anyone wishing to improve their German quickly and effectively in a fun and supportive atmosphere with truly gifted and caring teachers."
Michael Penn, Professor Stanford University, USA, (Summmer intensive courses in London, intensive courses in Freiburg, Skype lessons inbetween, 2018 to present)
"German made easy! The patience and relaxed style of the trainer give you the confidence to succeed."
Celia Fleming, Manager membership services, (one-to-two beginners corporate training for the British Bankers Association)
"I found the small class sizes were ideal in creating an informal but
structured learning atmosphere. With the focus on conversation skills, I
have been given an excellent basis to build on."
Sam Dony, Business Development Manager (A1 Module 1)
"I started learning German just to pick up a few basic phrases for holidays, but have found the lessons so stimulating and enjoyable that I keep on signing up for more. The teaching is excellent - varied, lively and effective. I can't think of any ways in which the classes could be improved."
Alison Booths, keen traveller to Germany and Austria (A2/B1 1:1)
"German Tuition's willingness to structure a one-to-one tuition course to fit in with my schedule and to suit my specific needs has been a tremendous help. The tuition is of a very high standard and I find my tutor's professional, yet understanding approach both encouraging and

Reg Clark, Pensioner (B2 1:1)
"I enjoy the friendly, flexible approach of the school, which allows me to learn and improve at my own pace: at the same time, preparing for a diploma gives me a goal and focus to my study."

"A group of us have been studying with German Tuition for a couple of years now and we hope to continue having lessons for some time to come. Our tutor, Nicole, teaches with an enthusiasm that rubs off on the students, leaving you motivated to study in your own time and to complete the homework tasks. Additionally, German Tuition are responsive to our needs to fit the lessons in around our working day and our other work events."

Shane A. Connell, Property Accountant (1:1 A1/A2)
"The teaching, by a German native speaker, is friendly, enthusiastic and informal. I've enjoyed the course a lot and it's been extremely effective in improving my German conversational and writing skills. Recommended."

Robin Dunham, Stockbroker, Charles Stanley (C1 1:1)
"Weekly one-to-one German lessons allow me to work at my own pace and at times that suit me. Lessons are varied and stimulating with equal emphasis on reading, writing, comprehension and conversation."
Charles Lim, Osteopath (B1 1:1)
"An excellent way to learn. Tutors are skilled, enthusiastic and provide effective teaching that is very much focused on students' needs and interests. Basically, German Tuition works."
Duncan Campbell, System Analyst (B2 1:1)
"I have been studying with German Tuition now for over 4 years and have found all the teachers to be very professional, fun to work with and above all very patient. I recommend GT to anyone wanting to learn German, whatever your level and whatever your goals are."
Martin Bednall (in-company training Barclays Global investors)
"Having lived in both Berlin and Stuttgart I had found that since moving back to London my German had really deteriorated. Following a recommendation from a friend I started having individual lessons with German Tuition nearly 18 months ago. The lessons have been well structured around my goals and interests with a wide variety of topics - from football and the newest German movie releases to cold war politics - being used as the basis for exploring grammar issues and the nuances of the language. As well as looking forward each week to my lesson with Nicole for the discussion and disagreements we have on the topic we are covering, I have found that my confidence and use of the language has improved markedly."
Simon Hobday, Lawyer, (C1 1:1)
