Learning German

Last year the school hosted more than 2,000 German language students from over 60 countries. The open and inviting school atmosphere, the internationality of the student body and the multicultural ambience of our city are the most important factors for most of our guests and account for the unique mix in our courses.

Many of our guests, whether they have come from abroad or have attended one of our integration courses, have enthusiastically recommended us. Or they have become repeat customers. We are happy to say that we have known some of our clients for years.

Methods for learning - the plan

German course At the school we teach German in German because that is the language we want to impart to you. Whether it's German for your daily life, your university studies, your career, or an upcoming examination.

Our groups have a maximum of ten people. This way we can combine theory and practice in communicative teaching situations, in which both grammatical questions and speaking practice are thoroughly covered. The small group format allows us to give individual attention to everyone in the class.

Our levelling corresponds to the levels set out in the CEF (Common European Framework) for language learning. The framework specifies different ability levels for every language and is roughly divided as follows: A for beginners, B for intermediate levels, and C for advanced levels.

Conversation from day one

The four foundation stones of all our courses are: listening comprehension, writing, reading, and speaking. Group discussions, role play, and conversation in the classroom all help to improve your oral communication, vocabulary, and sentence structure. Grammar is not taught in isolation; it is packaged in informative and stirring texts, which also convey important cultural, political, and historical information. A few examples of the topics covered are: relationships, social life, jobs and work, Berlin history, and cultural identity.

Our STANDARD courses are always taught by two teachers. They rotate in the middle of the week. That means you get variety. You get to hear another voice, experience different styles of communication, and work with a variety of themes and topics.
