German language course

language course berlinkLanguage courses are taught by native speaker teachers specialized in teaching German as a foreign language. The teaching method is based on communication. Students actively exercise the four fundamental functions of the language: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Particular attention, however, is given to conversation, to develop in the student an increasing capacity to express himself and communicate in German from the beginning of the course. At the end of the language course, the teacher and the students fill in a questionnaire of evaluation where the teacher evaluates the student, and the participant evaluates the course and the teacher.
