After class activities in Berlin & Germany

In addition to our German courses we arrange extracurriular activities in Berlin.  Come along if you want! Every week we organize:

This is how a week at GLS may look like:

The GLS guide is free, what you pay for are entrance tickets and public transport.

Monday

Afternoon: we show you the GLS neigbourhood, a very trendy district called Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. 

Evening, 7 pm: Regulars' table for GLS students in the GLS restaurant. Depending on the season there usually are between 40 and 120 students present.
