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.

Munich is the capital of Bavaria is a charming city at the foot of the Alps, famous for the Oktoberfest and loved for its relaxed atmosphere. Sightseeing tours often start at “Marienplatz”, the very city center (3 minutes walk to our school) with its impressing neogothic city hall, and show the visitors countless baroque churches, neoclassic buildings from the early 19th century and the castle “Schloss Nymphenburg” with its lovely park. In summer you can make new friends in a beer garden, enjoy one of the many lakes in the surroundings of Munich or simply relax in the “Englischer Garten”.

Snow covers the city in the wintertime. People go sledding in “Olympia Park” or skiing in the nearby Alps. Don’t miss the popular “Christkindl Markets” where you can experience traditional Christmas ambience and buy nice gifts. Soccer matches at the famous new Allianz Arena, sports facilities at the Olympic site, exhibitions in museums and galleries, theatres, cinemas, fairs, concerts, discos – Munich really has it all and will quickly become your home away from home.
