German Course in the Gap Year

I spent two weeks at the German language school in Berlin and had an amazing time! The course itself focuses on immersion so you are constantly required to interact in German which can be initially quite full on but I really felt it helped me develop my language skills. All the teachers are really approachable and encouraging and it provided for a great atmosphere in class and the chance to develop lasting relationships.

The German language school in Berlin is located in a great area, surrounded by bars and there is always a chance to go out and just relax or, if you prefer, there are also good selection of clubs nearby which are popular with students and usually really busy as a result.

Berlin is such an interesting city to live in, whether you are into history, culture, the arts or just the night life and it really isn’t that expensive compared to other European cities so is definitely worth a visit and is a great place to study.

I stayed on the campus residence accommodation and absolutely loved my room, it was really modern and spacious and I didn’t want to leave!

CESA were always really helpful when I spoke to them and good value for money so I would definitely recommend them.

The time I spent in Berlin has left me so many great memories and I really hope to return soon and further improve my German skills.”
