German course with an experienced German teacher

Why German?

German philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein famously said that “the limits of my language mean the limits of my world.” To learn a new language is to expand the limits of your world. Taking German classes or learning about German culture will undoubtedly expand your ability to relate with native German speakers and the cultures of German-speaking countries.
The German languages, German Deutsch, is the official language of Germany and Austria, as well as being one of the official languages of Switzerland. German belongs to the West Germanic group of the Indo-European language family, along with English and Dutch. There are also native German-speaking populations in Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Belgium and Italy. German is a native-language of between 90 and 95 million people worldwide and is spoken as a second language by 10 to 15 million people.
Germany is the economic powerhouse of the EU and therefore the German-language is a very worthwhile foreign language to learn to speak fluently. It will increase your access to jobs, networking and education within the German-speaking world.

Choosing the right German courses

German lessons do not have to be costly or difficult. The most effective German courses will involve language immersion, where German learning takes place in an environment where every person is encouraged to speak German all the time. Such a type of German class is widely available and gives students an opportunity to build their conversational German as well as learn German grammar.
Typical German courses will involve a German teacher facilitating a group that learns from each other, while a private one-to-one German class will involve the learner practising directly with a native German speaker.

German classes Australia - Goethe-Institut

Goethe-Institut is the home of German culture in Australia (and many other non-German-speaking countries). Here you can find information about German culture and you can take German courses, where you can learn German grammar, learn to speak German with fluency and also engage in cultural and linguistic immersion activities. According to its website, the Goethe-Institute offers “German courses, events, experience, cultural exchange and country information (about Germany).”

German Language Schools

German language courses are also available in Australia outside of the Goethe-institut. Many language schools offer German for beginners, intermediate or advanced learners. These are the often same schools where teaching is done for Spanish, French, Japanese, Italian and other foreign languages, from beginner level all the way to advanced level.
In Melbourne for example, as an adult learning German you can take German courses at Monash University and the University of Melbourne, as well as many other institutions through University Languages Portal Australia. The Council of Adult Education also offers various language programs, depending on demand.
You will likely first take a placement test, which will assess your knowledge of German grammar and German pronunciation, before you are placed into the correct German course for you.

Free Lessons Online

This is a great way to learn unique German expressions and slang, which textbooks will not teach you.

Websites such as Superprof, iTalki and AmazingTalker are great platforms to find the perfect German teacher for you.
