Course content

All courses build on the 4 fundamentals: listening, writing, reading and speaking. Free class discussions, role-playing and conversation help develop verbal expression, vocabulary and good sentence structure. Grammar is not studied in isolation, rather it is packed in informative and stimulating texts that provide valuable cultural, political and historical background. Some topics covered include: relationships, social life, jobs and labour, history of Berlin, cultural identity.

Course Etiquette

To ensure a fast and smooth learning progress, we ask you to attend classes regularly:

  • Prerequisite for a GLS certificate is a minimum attendance of 80%.
  • Every level finishes with a test: you will need to score at least 60% to advance to the next level.
