A trendy language stay in Berlin!


Founded in 1990, our partner school is located close to the Oranienburger Strasse, in Berlin’s Mitte district, north of the River Spree. This lively one kilometer-long street, that stretches from Hackescher Market to Friedrichstrasse, boasts bars, cafes, art galleries, boutique shops and encompases Berlin’s famous nightlife.


You needn’t worry about the noise however; whilst the school does have this vibrant life on its doorstep, it’s tucked away in a quiet side street, easily found thanks to its distinctive bright red door.


Our friendly and welcoming Berlin partner school invites students to study German in bright and spacious classrooms. Outside of the classroom, students can enjoy the cafeteria with free internet, free use of computers and a roof terrace, that’s the perfect place to chill out with your friends during the Spring and Summer months.


Don’t know any German at all, but want to start learning?

In 2020, beginner courses will start on the folowing dates: 06.01., 03.02., 02.03., 06.04., 04.05., 02.06., 06.07., 20.07., 03.08., 07.09., 05.10 and 02.11

All elementary-advanced level courses have start dates on every Monday throughout the year.

Please note that there will be no class held during the public Hollydays.

Once your German classes are done for the day, you can join one of the school’s many social activity programme  including city walks and trips to Leipzig and Potsdam.

Host Families

Living with a host family is the best way to immerse yourself in the language as you’ll get to continue learning after class by putting your language skills into real life practice, as you become part of the family!

If you select the shared room option, our partner school will take care to make sure your roommate has different mother tongue to you, encouraging you both to practice German as much as possible.  

At this school, it’s worth noting that the host families are not always ‘traditional’ families; there are also single parent families and single elderly people who will welcome you into their home.
