Since 1983, the German Language School (GLS) has been successfully running junior courses in Berlin and Munich. Every year, more than 1.200 students from all over the world are welcomed by GLS. Whether students prefer Berlin or Munich, idyllic suburb or the middle of the big city, GLS offers the perfect location for everyone.
The activity programme is very versatile as well. Depending on the course and the location, students can go climbing, play volleyball, go canoeing, go for a bicycle ride or go visit all kinds of tourist attractions in the area.
Of course, German lessons are very important too. Teachers place great value on communication and active participation of the students.
This combination of interesting tuition and exciting avtivity programme guarantee an unforgettable experience for the students.
GLS is accredited via the Senate of Berlin, several American universities and the swedish Ministry of Education. This is how quality criteria of EAQUALS (European Association for Quality Language Services), FIYTO (Federation of International Youth Travel Organisations) and IALC (International Association of Language Centres) are being warranted.
All of the teaching staff are university graduates and have been working in the field of education and more specifically "German as a foreign language" for many years. Most of them are between 25 and 45 yeras old.
Students that are 18 or older can join the adult German courses in Berlin all year round.
Berlin offers 6 programmes that differ in terms of age of the students, tuition and overall schedule. You can find a more detailed description of the courses down below.
The Young & Fun programme is perfect for younger students who prefer calm and more rural surroundings near Lake Zeuthener (situated in the south-east of Berlin and seperating Berlin and Brandenburg).
Students who enjoy the water and water sports should choose the programmes Water Sports or Riverside. 2 day trips to Berlin are included in this programme.
The programme Berlin Summer Villa lies directly at the famous avenue Kurfürstendamm (this long and broad boulevard is lined with shops, houses, hotels and restaurants). Students who enjoy the city life usually choose this programme.
The intensive programme in Berlin Westend is appreciated by students who fancy a more thorough learning experience with 25 lessons of German per week.
This variety of programmes enables students to take the best pick and make the most of their time at GLS.
Munich offers 3 programmes that also promise lots of fun and variation for every student.
The Young and Fun programme takes place in a beautiful small town in the Alps which is the perfect location for lovers of nature. 2 day trips to Munich are also included in the programme and will give participants the chance to get to know the stunning capitol of Bavaria.
The Adventure Programme is literally that: Tons of adventure! Going for a hike, mountainbiking, rafting or swimming near a waterfall are just a couple of activities that will be offered during this programme.
Munich Castle is a very interesting programme. Students live in an actual modernised castle with a lot of sight seeing opportunities just around the corner. For example the Hofbräuhaus (very famous restaurant), the Bavaria Filmstudios (a lot of movies and TV-shows are shot here) or the Frauenkirche (one of the landmarks of Munich).
