Our school campus is located in the Berlin district of Prenzlauer Berg. This is an ideal location for a German course for Young Students, as the area is full of cafés, shops and lots of sports and leisure amenities. If you’d like to soak up some culture while you’re learning German, Berlin’s Museum Island is less than a mile away.
The school buildings are full of character and have been completely refurbished, to a high standard. There are 40 classrooms, a stylish restaurant, café, bookstore, bicycle rental shop, basketball and volleyball courts and a lounge with a cinema screen. The school sits in extensive gardens and has wireless Internet access throughout.
Courses in Berlin (College)
You will have 20 German lessons per week. Lessons last for 45 minutes and take place in the afternoon, between 3:30pm and 7:00pm. Classes are kept to a maximum size of 12 students, and are made up of people from all over the world. Your common language will be German, so you’ll get lots of practice in using your language skills!
If you choose to study on this German course for Young Students, you have three options for accommodation. Opt for on-site accommodation, and you will stay in one of our on-site guesthouses, or in the hostel, just a five minute walk away from the school. Both options offer convenience and comfortable, modern and well-furnished rooms. Breakfast and dinner at the residence are included, with lunch in the cafeteria offered at a discounted rate.
Or you might prefer to live with a German host family to totally immerse yourself in the language, culture and traditions of Germany. From the family home, you will have no more than a 50 minute commute to classes. Your German family will provide you with breakfast and you will have dinner on campus, with your fellow students.
All activities are supervised, but otherwise, students have freedom to explore and enjoy Berlin!
A packed activities program is included with the price of the course, giving you the chance to get to know Germany and other students, and test your German with the locals! On your first full day in Berlin, before your first German lessons, you’ll have a guided tour of the Prenzlauer Berg district where the school is, so that you can familiarize yourself with the area.
Other morning activities include cycling tours along the route of the Berlin wall, and shopping and sightseeing trips. In the evening, following your German lessons, teachers will introduce you to Berlin’s nightlife, or you can take part in sporting activities.
At the weekends, when you have more free time, you can join teachers and other students on full day-trips. One of the locations you can visit is Potsdam, a city rich in history, monuments and natural beauty.
If you’re between 15 and 19 years-old, want to learn German and also want to have a great time in Berlin, this is the course for you!
