Course Description

The course is academically demanding 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. 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 inside and outside the classroom.

The Hotel acts as both accommodation and classroom for students, who wish to study with their peers and reside in the heart of Berlin. The programme caters for up to 60 students each week. It is well located in Berlin (in the old Western Section) and will become fully booked ~ so please book early!

In total there are 80 lessons over 4 weeks (unless a day is lost to a public holiday). This is equal to two terms of contact lessons at most schools 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.

  • All teachers are fully qualified and experienced in the teaching of German as a foreign language
  • Only German will be spoken in class
  • One week+ course offered, two weeks+ enrolment recommended
  • School staff will be living on site
  • German language classes are divided according to language level and nationality mix
  • 20 German lessons per week format offered


A range of activities are offered as an inclusive part of this programme
in the morning & the evenings, including:

1) Two planned activities per day (afternoon and evening) e.g. Berlin Wall, beach volleyball, pedal boating on the River Spree, New Reichstag, Potsdamer Platz, a night out, barbecues, bowling, table tennis, video evening or a cinema trip.

2) One excursion per week (Saturday) i.e. Potsdam, Pfauenisnel, Sachsenhausen Island.

Going Out Permission

Teenagers aged 15/17 years will be required to respect the school curfew rules – to be back in their bedroom by 10.00pm (and students who fail to do so, or who are too tired to participate or attend classes will be noted, and their parents told).
Parents must be aware that some of the college arranged activities in the evenings will go on later than 12.00 midnight.
Students need to be mature about their behaviour to attend this programme.
Any inappropriate behaviour will be reported to the parents concerned.

Fly to Berlin and take the inclusive return transfer service from one of Berlin’s airports, the Hauptbahnhof or main bus station. Students should be in Berlin, at their accommodation, between 09.00 & 17.00 hrs. Please aim to be present on campus at 17.00 hrs – this is when the introductory talk and tests will take place (so no time is wasted on Monday AM)
