BWS Germanlingua | Story
Get to know our philosophy, students, and team
Our German language courses started in 1984. Since then our teachers introduced thousands of students from all over the world to the German language and culture. Many of our students returned to keep improving and polishing the German with our high-quality German courses in Germany. From the beginning our language school teaches German as a foreign language according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
Join German language courses in our schools in the city centers
Our language schools in Germany are in the very center of the most attractive German cities: Munich, Berlin and Cologne. Thanks to our highly qualified teachers, the welcoming atmosphere and the modern teaching facilities BWS Germanlingua has earned a very good international reputation. In our classrooms, students from all over the world meet to learn German. Our teachers as well as our school office team are always available for advice. Free wireless internet access is at our students’ disposal. Our fully equipped kitchen is a popular hang-out during the breaks and enables an intensive exchange between students and teachers beyond lesson time. Here, extra-curricular activities for the evenings and weekends are planned and these often form the beginning of long-lasting friendships.
BWS Germanlingua is committed to offering quality German language courses in Germany in a pleasant environment that respects the values of each participant, with the aim of strengthening communication between different linguistic communities in the world. We do not only focus on teaching the German language, but also the German culture and costumes. Our staff and teachers will do their utmost to integrate every student and will always be happy to help and give advice also beyond teaching hours to make Germany your home away from home!
Excellent teaching is the most essential asset to a successful language school. Due to continuous training, our qualified and experienced teachers are well acquainted with the latest developments in the field of German as a foreign language. You will note that our instructors can be seen as highly motivated, very competent and knowledgeable friends who are teaching the class. As a result, the members of our staff are not only available to discuss matters of German language but are also happy to help you with advice on other subjects of life. Many times, they organize extra-curricular activities as well.
Teaching Material and Resources
Equipped with the latest technology our classrooms support the students’ learning process ideally. Projectors, tablets and personal computers in every classroom enhance the possibility for our lessons to be taught in an interactive and varied way. All books and teaching materials are provided except dictionaries. Students receive books, a copybook and a pen as well as all relevant photocopies. There are computers with free internet access available and WLAN/Wi-Fi internet access in the entire school. Other learning materials (manuals, books, novels and DVDs) can be borrowed.
The basis of our courses is the modern usage of the German language. We focus on developing the understanding of the spoken and the written language as well as the ability to express oneself. The teaching follows a clear syllabus and is geared towards training grammar and sentence structures and expanding vocabulary. The variety of teaching methods guarantees optimum learning success. In individual, partner or group work, you will improve your reading and listening comprehension as well as written and oral expression. We believe that the most important aspect of learning a new language is oral communication and having fun. You can put this into practice not only in role playing, language learning games and discussions, but also during our arranged leisure activities.
