Transfer from and to the nearest airport
We organise the transfer by private bus or taxi at the participant's arrival and departure.
Participants are usually accomodated in fully equipped and comfortable flats shared with other beneficiaries. Participants can be also accommodated in hotels (usually for short stay programmes).
Participants accommodated on a self-catering basis (apartments), receive a weekly pocket money to cover food costs. Participants staying in hotels are provided with full board accommodation (3 meals / day).
German language course
Language 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.
We provide participants with a weekly or monthly local transport pass, including bus and underground.
Tutoring and follow up
During the programme, each participant will have two tutors, one of BERLINK and one within the host company, in this way, a continuous control of the whole experience is guaranteed.
