Effective German Language Learning

Learn German with our German Language Courses

Did you know that German is one of the top 20 popular Languages? It is true to say that the German Language is in great demand. Also, it is the 3rd most spoken language in Europe. Increasing demand for the German language at workplaces, schools, and social events is what makes a learner enroll in German language classes. Globibo's German language courses are mainly geared for corporates and their families, but we cover students/learners of all different ages and industries. Our unique delivery model of German Language courses makes our students more successful and satisfied in their language journey. Globibo has been involved in the corporate German language course industry for a very long time and we developed a detailed set of study material, methods, and processes to execute corporate programs.

Globibo provides 6 levels of German language courses, based on the Common European Framework:

  • A1 - German Beginner Level
  • A2 - German Elementary Level
  • B1 - German Intermediate Level
  • B2 - German Upper-Intermediate Level
  • C1 - German Advanced Level
  • C2 - German Proficient Level

In some customizations of our corporate courses, those levels are split into 1-3 sub-modules (e.g. A1.1 and A1.2). Apart from the German Language Courses Curriculum that is aligned to the Common European Framework, we also offer support programs for the preparation of students attempting DSH and TestDaF tests.

German Language Learning Customization

Our specialty is course program customization; we will work with you to specify every single aspect of your German Language Learning journey. While we also offer a general program, we execute specific programs customized to all industries like financial services, automotive, healthcare, logistics, oil & gas, hospitality, etc. Those programs focus specifically on adult German language learning and how to quickly generate learning success for work or social environment. We, at Globibo, understand that for adult learning to be successful, we must incorporate the andragogy of teaching adults which is the “art and science of helping adults learn.” As such, our specially designed courses are based on the six principles of adult learning by Malcolm Knowles which are as follows:

  1. Adults are internally motivated and self-directed.
  2. They bring an abundance of life experiences and knowledge to the class.
  3. Most adults are goal-oriented to acquire relevant and adequate knowledge from their learning.
  4. Adults are relevancy-oriented, looking to benefit by relating assigned tasks in the class to their own learning goals, which will enable them to be inspired and motivated to complete all assigned tasks.
  5. Adults thrive by experiential learning. Theories are important but not as important as applying theoretical concepts to real-life situations.
  6. Respect is crucial in all relationships, and this applies to the relationship between adult learners and their instructors.

German Language Courses

German Language Course Instructors

Our German Language classes are conducted by experienced native (a-language) German instructors. Especially for German, the intrinsic challenges of grammar and structures are a challenge and require the right teaching approach. Our Instructors have to pass strict criteria set by the Globibo Academic Board in regards to formal qualifications and experience. The key evaluation criteria are 1) formal qualification in teaching German, 2) experience in teaching German Language Courses and 3) native language (a-language) / cultural background. Based on those criteria all instructors are reviewed before the initial course as well as periodically after receiving customer/student feedback.

German Language Study Material

It is interesting to know that in comparison to English, German vocabulary has often multiple variations of expressing the same. Globibo German Language courses are designed with special German study materials which cover ample German vocabulary or grammar topics.

Not just that, Globibo’s German Language course allows you to access different Learning aids which includes

German Language Course Approach

Globibo has conceptualized GLAM as an advanced method of language acquisition and we use this method also for our German Courses. This GLAM method blends the latest knowledge in learning and teaching methods based on neuroscience with the experience of thousands of instructors and students around the world. For details on the GLAM approach, please contact us. While our German Language Courses are aligned to other German Language Proficiency Tests (e.g. German Government-related certifications), we also use the classification of CEFR to ensure consistency between the learning levels. A standard German Language Course consists of 12 lessons of 1.5-2 hours. This time alone is usually not sufficient for passing potential proficiency tests you have in mind (for such tests additional preparation lessons might be required). We do offer private and group German Language Courses. Certainly, all German Language Courses are based on Globibo's world-class Language Study Material
