Student reviews & feedback

Teachers were very good. Good mix of students, all friendly. Wish I had the time to complete the first level.

My host was friendly and provided all the information and help I needed or asked for, room good - had all I needed. All facilities shops/parks/bars/trains etc very close by, but a little bit too far from the school for my liking. Would have preferred it to be in walking distance.

Thanks. I enjoyed the experience. Definitely would like to do again.

The course was good, following a working book very well structured. I only missed more conversation time during class, like discussion moments involving the whole class so we could improve our oral abilities. Sometimes it was too much the teacher speaking and we only listening. But overall it was a very good course!

EXCELLENT! Couldn't have had a better accommodation. I staid at the Smartments at Athener Straße, 6. Really good, just what I needed for the 3 weeks I staid in Frankfurt. Good bed, great shower, a small but sized just right kitchen and good heater. Loved it. Good WiFi as well.

This was the second course I took abroad using Apple Languages and I strongly recommend it. Staff very friendly and the schools chosen to provide the course are high quality.

I had two teachers of totally different personalities. Both were excellent. As it was the month of August the class was quite big but it did not take away from my enjoyment.

My hosts could not have been nicer. I really felt at home there. The male host had a similar taste of music to mine. We had some great music sessions consisting of rock, pop, blues and Irish ballads. He played the guitar and I did most of the singing. There were always plenty of others to join in. Both my male and female hosts made my stay a really memorable one.

Great course - I enjoyed it. The style of teaching was great in that the teacher gave her instructions and explanations in German, resisting the use of English whenever possible, and I found that particularly helpful since it encouraged me to concentrate harder & understand German speech patterns much more clearly.
