At Sprachraum London we start from the premise that everyone is able to learn successfully given the right tools, methods and support.

We promote autonomous learning where you are encouraged to take initiative in your own learning.

Our German lessons aim not only to equip you with practical German language skills, but also to introduce you to the world of possibilities that learning German brings. We know from experience that language learning has to be as active and immersive as possible in order to yield optimum results, hence you will be exposed to a wide range of learning materials in various formats. We also know that one of the keys to success in language learning is relevance, which is why all lessons are carefully designed and structured by your dedicated German tutor to satisfy your rhythm, interests, and objectives.

Teaching emphasis of our German tuition is on a balance of solid understanding of grammar and syntax together with acquisition of vocabulary. Grammar is the backbone of a language and mastering it is crucial in order to use the language correctly. It also helps to shed light on the inner workings of the language. However grammar can easily become redundant, without words to apply it to. Hence vocabulary exercises focus initially on subjects that are of relevance to you.

If you’re a beginner, you will start with the very basic: learning to describe and express yourself in simple ways, gradually introducing more sophisticated grammar. Because we know that a common stumbling block in learning a new language is resistance, you will be encouraged to gradually dismantle this block by getting into the habit of thinking in German from a very early stage, however crude it may sound to the senses.

As we believe that language learning has to be as immersive as possible, you are steadily encouraged to review your own progress through a range of oral, written and comprehension exercises. Furthermore, those aiming to sit a German exam will find this structure beneficial, as it will accustom you to exam situations right from the start.

If you’re at intermediate or advanced level, you will be introduced to more complex materials on contemporary topics or subjects of your interest as a starting point to generate a discussion. You will have the opportunity to build and substantiate your own argument. This activity reinforces everything that you have learned, that is using the language correctly and in a more nuanced way, without even realising it. Language is all about communication, so being able to talk about things that matter to you is an excellent way to start.

Suitable for learners of all levels, especially those who wish to reach a certain point within a short timeframe.

Our German conversation classes are designed specifically to improve your oral fluency and widen your vocabulary range. As we know that one of the keys to success in language learning is relevance, subjects will generally revolve around your areas of interests. However lessons may also cover more general topics ranging from current affairs to food, history or music in order to expose you to new words and grammar concepts. You will be given learning materials and tools of various formats to ensure that your learning process is stimulating and immersive throughout.

A typical lesson for intermediate/advanced students consists in discussing a chosen material. This could include newspaper articles, news reports, podcasts, short stories, novels, German-speaking TV shows or films. Students could choose to do this independently outside of the lesson or together in class. During the lesson, your German tutor will create written mind-maps to record new vocabulary including standard phrases, synonyms, idioms and certain grammar rules relating to the topic discussed. Students will be able to take this away and go through them in their own time in order to process and internalise this new information.

Such as, but not limited to, Goethe Institut certificates, TELC, TestDAF, A-Levels, GCSE and university exams

Our German exam preparation courses are devoted to consolidating techniques and strategies to ensure exam success. Depending on the exam you are planning to sit, you will be familiarised with the structure of your individual exam modules. We will identify the area(s) that need most attention and work together to improve your performance. You will be encouraged to practice using available past or practice papers and exam simulation, particularly for the speaking part, and receive regular feedback.

While of course success is mostly dependent on your effort and commitment, it helps having a German tutor who has experienced all the challenges of language learning first hand. It took Natasha (Sprachraum’s founder) ten months to get from A1 to passing her C1 Goethe Zertifikat exam and she takes great pride in being able to identify with her students, as she was once one too!

Suitable for learners of all levels, who would like to supplement their German language skills with knowledge of arts and culture of the German-speaking world. Industry professionals, university students or creatives working on certain projects may also benefit from these programs.

Rates: Upon request depending on your requirements and period of study. Please ask for an individual quote.

Since our ultimate aim is not just to equip you with practical German language skills, but also to introduce you to the world of possibilities that learning German brings, we would like to expose you to the best of arts, culture and literature of the German-speaking world. At the end of the course you will not only have gained or improved your language skills, but also your knowledge of the arts and culture of the German-speaking world.

The format and focus of the course is entirely up to you: we do the content and structure. For example, if your language skills are quite advanced and you are interested in literature, we can read together and analyse a chosen piece of literature.

If you have other other goals in mind please feel free to drop us a line to discuss them. Individual projects are very welcome.
