Course Description

In total there are 40 lessons over 2 weeks (unless a day is lost to a public holiday). This is equal to a term of contact lessons at your school in the UK. Small classes, native speakers, interesting material and a pleasant learning atmosphere all contribute to the learning process. The emphasis is on the active use of language in real situations. You learn German and after class you get to explore Berlin with other teenagers from all over the world.

The course is academically demanding course and aims to stimulate student interest and keep the lessons dynamic. Optional social activities provide contrast and bring an additional element of fun to the overall programme.

  • All teachers are fully qualified and experienced in the teaching of German as a foreign language
  • Only German will be spoken in class
  • 2, 3 & 4 week course enrolment possible
  • Whilst the college also accepts adults students, they are taught on a separate college site to the Teenagers
  • German language classes are divided according to language level

The German language college staff are aware that the students are on holiday and will do all they can to help students enjoy their German experience, both in and outside the classroom.
