Learn German in Munich (Historic Centre), Germany
Also Available:• Munich
Munich is a fascinating city in which to learn German. A German language course in Munich offers students not only the opportunity of total immersion in Germany and German culture, but also the chance to see another side of Germany, to experience the way of life in Bavaria, so different from the north.
Munich has a large, monumental historic centre. Our German language school is located in the very centre of Munich. This makes it easy for our school to offer guided walks around Munich, as part of the cultural program, after the course has finished for the day.
Munich is a city of culture, festivals, concerts, café culture and biergartens, always with plenty to do and see, offering a vibrant student life to all those who wish to learn German on German language courses at our school.
The teachers were incredible, really nice people; and if I could repeat these 4 months I wouldn't doubt of doing it in Munich. It is a lifetime experience, these were the best 4 months of my life!!!
Really friendly people and great teacher. I enjoyed my time in Munich a lot. The accommodation was very comfortable and suitably furnished, so enhanced a pleasant stay.
Course was a good introduction to see if German is something I want to pursue. School great, friendliness and patience of people really excellent.
Teachers were excellent and I like having two teachers with such different approaches. Other students were interesting and we could communicate together pretty well.
The teachers were fantastic; very enthusiastic, fun and engaging. My accommodation was in a fantastic location, and was very comfortable.
The school was perfect, it was in city centre so we could go anywhere we wanted after class. My family was perfect, they were friendly.
My teacher was very friendly. I had a great time in Munich and I hope to come back next year.
We had a good week and learnt a lot, it has certainly given me an appetite to learn more German. My accommodation was in a very convenient part of town with lovely flat mates.
Course was great, the teachers were good and the classes were interesting. I learned a lot and had great fun.
I found the course very helpful as regards structuring sentences in German and also with grammar. The teachers were of a high quality and were very helpful. The workbooks provided were also extremely helpful.

Lederhosen and dirndl – Oktoberfest I am coming!
Last year I did a German language course in Munich - it was really amazing! In my second week on the course, me and a few people I met whilst sightseeing went to the Theresienwiese, to see the tapping of the first barrel at Oktoberfest. It was unbelievable, with so many crazy people from all over the world. Over 6 million people, dancing, laughing, eating and DRINKING! I love the German beer and it’s so huge. They serve it in a jar (“Maß”), 1 litre per person.
Amongst the many attractions, the beer is probably the most important thing. The food is also great though. I ate different Oxen specialties, real German Bratwurst with “Kartoffelsalat” (potato salad), massive Bavarian Pretzels and the Oktoberfest special of “Händl” (grilled chicken).
