Testimonials

Sergi Yagüe Fernández
Sergi Yagüe Fernández
Alpadia, Berlin
Duration: 4 weeks

Hello! My name is Sergi Yagüe. I wanted to improve my German (because I am currently studying tourism) and I hence got in contact with the ESL agency in Barcelona. I went there to get some information and finally booked a one-month course and accommodation in Berlin.

My stay went perfectly: the school is right next to the apartment where I was staying and very close to downtown. I loved the shared apartment: my room was quite big and the owner was very nice. We often had meals together and I even took part in the family activities! I also enjoyed life with the other students living in the house.

The courses are very dynamic and entertaining and the teachers are nice. I highly recommend this school!

Caroline Graf
Alpadia, Berlin
Duration: 8 weeks of courses + 12 weeks of internship

I spent 5 action-packed months in Berlin. You never know what to expect here, the city is so full of surprises. When something unusual happens, like people dancing at the entrance of the metro with an improvised DJ, all you can say is: “this is Berlin!”
Alpadia is well located, close to many cosy restaurants, and the area is beautiful. Besides, the school offers many activities and outings every week, which allows you to meet more people and further discover the city. For me, Berlin means: crazy evenings, art galleries and black & white pictures taken from a photo booth… Viel Spass!

What can be best for studying German than to go to Berlin? It’s a very dynamic city and you can do many things at low cost. This trip is the best experience of my life. Living alone in a city where you don’t speak the language, and having to manage on your own (even if the school is here to help you in case of a problem), was a real adventure for me. The school provided us with very good basis in German but it is mostly by going out and meeting people that I made progress. Berlin has lost nothing of its alternative side and all the music and art fans will be more than satisfied with what it has to offer. An unforgettable trip!
