Student Testimonials for GLS Berlin

I highly recommend GLS for these six reasons
Jennifer| United States

‘My GLS experience has been excellent. In 24 weeks of standard instruction, spread over 9 months I have gone from a complete beginner in German (A0) to starting level B2, with the ability to converse and a strong foundation in grammar and vocabulary to build on. I’ve really really enjoyed my time at GLS too. Some of the aspects of the school experience that have been most important to me are: good teachers, super accommodating administration, (after-class) programs, (bright and spacious) facilities, (international and interesting) students and (high quality) value.’

✅ Efficient and professional, with the bonus of being located in a cool neighbourhood
Inga| Latvia

‘If you can only spare a few weeks, the Intensive Programme is perfect. With 4.5 hours of classes per day, plus all the homework and oral presentations to be prepared, you’ll be busy enough. The group size was optimal: 7 one week and 6 the other (excluding a very elusive – or shall I say “flying” – Dutchman :-)) My teachers (Simone and Hannes) were really professional and cool.’
