Our partner school is located in Berlin-Mitte, the historical centre of the German capital. This is the cultural heart of the city, with countless museums, galleries, cinemas and theatres alongside many hip bars, cafés and restaurants. Established in an opulent period house, our language school in Berlin welcomes students in modern classrooms equipped with interactive learning material and media. There is an average of 6-8 students per class, which means the young and dynamic teachers can offer individual attention to each of them. Internet-ready computers and a library are available to do some research. During the breaks, students will appreciate the cafeteria for its laid-back and convivial atmosphere. The subway and S-Bahn stops are right across the street, allowing you to get around the city very easily.

ESL heeft prettige medewerkers die ook echt meedenken! Ik zou ESL zeker aanraden aan vrienden of anderen die geïnteresseerd zijn in een taalreis. De klas was klein en daardoor makkelijk om in mee te komen. De leraren besteden veel persoonlijke aandacht per student en kunnen hierdoor goed helpen met persoonlijke leerdoelen. Het appartement lag op loopafstand van de school en daardoor heel centraal in de stad, dat was erg fijn! Het appartement was prima, niet bijzonder groot maar je had alles wat je nodig had. De eerste week had ik 2 huisgenoten, daarna zat ik een week alleen. Dat was niet heel fijn, maar verder geen probleem.

Andrea Lagger
BWS Germanlingua, Berlin
Duration: 5 weeks

My stay in Berlin was wonderful! The school is located in the heart of the city, right next to the Fernsehturm and the legendary Brandenburger Tor. The train station is 30 seconds away from the course center, which makes the travelling much easier. On top of being ideally located, the school is also very welcoming: the teachers are nice and I immediately made friends from all over the world. Furthermore, there is always someone ready to help if needed. After 5 weeks in Berlin, I can see that I have made significant progress in German. I can only recommend BWS Germanlingua to have an unforgettable experience.
