Consumer Trends in Germany

While English tuition delivers below average results in German schools, there is still a demand from learners to reach higher levels. There is also a significant market for basic skills, demonstrating a knowledge gap which Germans are keen to bridge through further learning.

In a survey of over 1000 learners* in Germany, a strong desire to improve their English levels was noted, with lack of time and motivation cited as the main barriers to success. Modern-day learners are looking for flexible and personalized offerings to fit around their busy lifestyle.

The Wall Street English concept addresses these needs specifically, delivering effective results with flexible and self-paced schedules for the learner.
