I very much enjoyed my week's German course in Berlin. The two teachers for my class (Gudrun and Nina) were both excellent and I was able to brush up my German very satisfactorily. The school facilities e.g. canteen were very good.

My host Elvira Hertel made me very welcome and cooked excellent meals, while my room was very comfortable. I was able to have many interesting conversations with Elvira.

Everything ran very smoothly and I would highly recommend Apple Languages.

Before starting the course, Apple Languages has been incredibly friendly and helpful in rearranging the date of my course. With staff helping to reorganise my stay at short notice, I would recommend them to anyone! After arriving at the school, the teachers were incredibly good at teaching the grammar and vocab as well!

The accommodation was satisfactory overall. With high-quality facilities, it was nice to live in.

Overall a very good experience!

Evaluation of the German course by the language school in Berlin [Prenzlauerberg]: I was lucky to take a German language course in Berlin from 18th July till 5th August 2016. To cut a long story short: I absolutely recommend this school.

I had 3 classes a day 90 minutes each: 2 group classes and 1 private class. Hence I had 3 teachers and, although each of them seemed to specialise in something else (vocabulary, grammar or culture), their cooperation was so smooth that I got the impression that they had agreed upon the curriculum of the whole group. This is even more surprising taking into consideration the fact, that the participants of the group were bound to change every Monday as the minimum length of the course is a week and participants take a week, a two-week or a tree-week course according to their possibilities. Surprisingly, the teachers manage to be both flexible and focused on their and their students’ goal.

Since I took level C1 course, all the participants were motivated and contributed to each other’s success. The atmosphere in the class was excellent. All classes contained a healthy mix of listening and talking (with an option of written homework), consolidating the matter already studied and learning a new one. Likewise, the subjects varied but were always topical and encouraged discussions. This was fostered not only by the creative approach of the teachers, but also by perfect organisation and infrastructure. The school has a number of buildings (including accommodation), a reception open almost around the clock, a cafeteria where one can have a proper meal and a restaurant. Many classrooms are equipped with Smart Boards that can be used as computer screens allowing for an access to the internet. At the same time one can write on them or select and shift the words written around, arranging them in an order requested. A password-protected wifi connection is also available to the students.

Apart from that, the school also has a library and organises sight-seeing visits and tours in Berlin and to other cities, as well as nature outings. Likewise, there are lectures on, for example, German history, art or cinema on offer. They are given by the teachers of the school who are prepared to provide linguistic explanations if needed. I am grateful to my inspiring teachers Jana, Thomas and Petra and to the speaker on German cinema, Gudrun, and on the German art and literature, Petra again. Thanks to them, German for me is not only the language of precision, but also of passion and of joie de vivre. I also appreciate the Glühwein offered by our guides Bennet and Stephanie after what turned out to be a very wet canoe trip in Spreewald.
