We find that language learning works best in a pleasant atmosphere. That’s why we don’t have drab, boring, greyscale classrooms in our language schools in Munich, Berlin and Hamburg. Instead, each classroom shines its own individual personality by being decorated in a unique, inspiring colour. But of course, as much as the rooms shine and radiate, they pale in comparison to how brightly you’ll shine! Your learning success is our highest focus. With your answers, your questions and your personal experiences, you actively shape your course.
Our speakeasy teachers are experienced in finding a good balance between working with the course book and the interests of the course participants. This way you can be sure that you will discuss the topics that are important to you whilst still learning all the content required by the CEFR for your level. With well-founded but easy-to-understand explanations, your speakeasy teacher will introduce you to the structures of the German language. In dynamic partner and group exercises, you will discover rules and new vocabulary. From the first lesson, however, the focus is on speaking, because with us you learn German for real life!
While an interactive course book provides the common thread for your learning success, we regularly enrich your German course with our own speakeasy material. This not only brings variety into your lessons, but also allows us to adapt the course to the interests of the participants. All the material is then implemented with many interactive exercises. We also like to use creative methods: why not perform slam poetry, learn new vocabulary with the help of current German songs or read a text in Bavarian? Each day of the class clearly focuses on how you can actively use your language skills.
Our speakeasy method is used in both our physical courses and our online courses. You can therefore choose the course format that best suits your learning preferences and expect modern, interactive and creative German lessons in a positive atmosphere!
If you would like advice on the right level for you, or if you have any other questions, our office team will be happy to help you. Our Student Service staff are very familiar with our course formats and will be sure to find the right course for you! Of course, you are always welcome to contact us with questions about accommodation, visas, speakeasy events or the telc exam. We are happy to speak with you in German or English - perhaps you would like to try Bavarian? Our staff will be happy to talk to you in other languages too - you can find out which languages we speak in our team profiles.
The area around Karlsplatz, very close to our school, offers plenty of opportunities to discover the city in between lessons. Have you ever taken a relaxed stroll through one of Munich's most beautiful squares? Numerous shops, cafés and restaurants invite you in. The Old Botanical Garden is also just a stone's throw away if you want to soak up some sun after your German course. However, if you feel like going to work or home, Munich's main railway station is also within easy reach.
At regular speakeasy events, you can easily get in touch with other participants and meet new people. A classic is the visit to the beer garden: here we want to celebrate Bavarian lifestyle together with you. We look forward to many evenings together with you!
Another motto that has shaped us is the appreciation of diversity and tolerance: we accept you as you are and treat each other with respect.
