Summer School :: Ages 15-17

Learn German @ Berlin Intensive

Ages 15 - 17

You are looking for an INTENSIVE course in Berlin? Then this summer school is the perfect choice for you: German courses include 5 lessons per day - instead of 4 as in the other GLS summer schools in Berlin. Don't think more work equals less fun, on the contrary: You´ll get to learn a lot, and your stay will be very comfortable: you will live in the same building where the classrooms are. And best of all: you will explore Berlin with friends from all over the planet! The school is a perfect home base for venturing out into Berlin: It is located just north of the city center and and it won´t take you more than 15 minutes to get into the VERY heart of Berlin. 

Daily activities in Berlin and a one day trip on the weekend included.
