Course testimonials:

  • Relevant content. Presented at a steady pace. Most importantly a native speaker of the language willing to answer questions. I feel more confidant with my German language skills and would like to come back next year, either to go on with stage two or repeat this course. Danke. Vincenza
  • I enjoyed the way our teacher presented all the information. She was quite organised and made sure we understood the content before moving on. I would have liked it if we did a little bit more speaking practice but overall it was quite good.
  • The tutor was excellent
