About Us


Ultradian does not set out to equip the learner with perfect grammar or vocabulary – all this is on line for free – but does set out to make him or her comfortable speaking in German about matters that are significant to the learner and the company. 


The Principal of the Company, Keith Philpot, found himself at Liverpool St Station in London aged 15 with a return ticket to Lübeck in his hand. Bid farewell by his father he set off alone to cross Europe by train and meet for the first time his German hosts. That done there followed 3 weeks in the company of wonderful people, none of whom spoke a word of English. The result was. most importantly, the beginning of an understanding of the people and their culture. And, of course, out of necessity the joy of rapidly learning to speak in the German language.

Later on, in the 1970s, came the opportunity to travel, work and live as locals in Germany for several years.

Later still….back in England, came an enjoyable 12 years as a partner in a highly technical business dependent upon the specification and import of technical products from German suppliers mainly communicating in German.

I am now fortunate to be in daily contact with great friends at AWO/Simson Rennkollektiv www.awo-rennkollektiv.de in Saxony - please see testimonial.
