Berlin, the capital of Germany, with a population of almost 3,5 million people, was known for its famous Berliner Mauer (The Berlin Wall).
Nowadays more students are realizing how important it is to not only learn a new language but also to dig into the culture of that language. Living and studying in another country will enrich your personal social and language development.
Our language school – TANDEM BERLIN – has more than 30 years of experience offering active language learning. The school is located in the attractive new premises in Bötzow Kiez, a neighbourhood within the inner city district of Prenzlauer Berg. Students can here combine learning a language with meeting people and sharing cultural experience. The language courses are based on effective communication and they work. Qualified teachers, small groups and a relaxed atmosphere guarantee that all participants receive optimal support and encouragement and make quick progress. Whatever you’re learning – German, English, Spanish – it should be fun!
