BWS GERMANLINGUA - Cologne
It was in 1984 when we started teaching German as a foreign language according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Since then thousands of students from all over the world joined our classes and many of them returned a second and sometimes a third time.
Our schools are in the very centre of the most attractive German cities: Munich, Berlin and Cologne. Thanks to our highly qualified teachers, the welcoming atmosphere and the modern teaching facilities we have earned a very good international reputation. In our classrooms, students from all over the world meet to learn German. Our teachers, as well as the other members of our school office team, are always available for advice.
Cologne is the oldest of Germany’s big cities and is located in the West. It is not only known for its 2000 old history but also for its cultural and architectural heritage. The famous Cologne Cathedral – a gothic masterpiece – and its international events, like the Cologne Carnival attract millions of visitors every year.
The historic city center is situated on both sides of the Rhine River. Its many clubs, pubs and restaurants bring a unique vibe to the city. In the evenings the vibrant and trendy nightlife will tempt you with its countless bars, pubs and beer gardens.
Cologne is a charming and very open-minded city with its own mentality and its liveliness, as well as the authenticity of everyday life making, feel welcome and at home in no time.
