Do you think you've made progress?
« Oui, je pense avoir fait des progrès. D'une part parce que je vis chez une famille d'accueil, et que le nombre et la diversité des occasions de discussion sont très grands. D'autre part, je me suis fixé une règle dès le départ : penser aussi souvent que possible en allemand. Cela m'a beaucoup aidée. Et évidemment, les cours et l'apprentissage de règles grammaticales à l'école ont beaucoup aidé! »
School highlights
« La proximité et l'enjouement des professeurs ; leur motivation à nous apprendre quelque chose. »
Top tips
« La liste est trop grande. Mais pour se mettre dans le bain et découvrir Berlin, il suffit de sortir tous les week-ends. Il y a toujours une manifestation, un spectacle où des portes ouvertes à droite où à gauche, toujours des gens à rencontrer ou des gens à découvrir.Si vous êtes à Berlin en été et que vous aimez la musique instrumentale, le Young Euro Classic est inévitable ;) »

« Si molti, avendo avuto la possibilità di fare lo stage ho imparato molto. Durante il lavoro ho potuto/dovuto praticare ciò che ho imparato durante il corso presso ALPDIA.Sono due cose completamente diverse, frequentando una scuola di lingua si impara la grammatica e le basi necessarie per potersi esprimere. Lavorare e stare 8 ore a contatto con persone di lingua madre tedesca ho imparato cose che ma scuola non avrei mai imparato. »
