Language learning is a process, it’s not something that happens overnight, it brings us out of our comfort zone, and like every other process, it makes us discover something new about ourselves.
When learning a language, the first step should always be setting goals. We need to do this in order to understand what we want to achieve, it’s the right way to keep us motivated. When setting these goals we need to focus on ourselves and think about what’s the best way for us to learn, what tools do we need, and what kind of environment works best for us.
The right place for me is the BWS Germanlingua school in Munich. And I can say that this is the best German course I´ve done so far.
The best German course
The school is in a nice building and is located in a really good area of the city, but what surprised me are the people. My teacher is the best at making you feel comfortable, for her, mistakes are as important as right answers, and that’s exactly what I was talking about at the beginning, the right environment to get out of our comfort zone. The team that works in the office is very supportive as well, they know your name and make you feel seen, every single student is part of the BWS family.
Learning German outside the school
Something very special that contributes to making you feel accepted and part of a group is the afternoon activities, sports, culture, sightseeing and more. On these occasions, students from different classes and with different levels of German get together to make the language learning process even more fun. It’s not important if you are not the best at playing bowling or if you are not very fond of art, but participating in these activities is a great way of making new friends and making the most out of your time in Munich.
All things considered, I can say that I just started this language learning process at BWS Germanlingua and I can’t wait for what the future holds.
