Insider tips about what future students should not miss
When you get to a new country, one of the most common things that can happen to you is trying to adapt yourself. Try to be positive and persistent in order to enjoy your stay as much as possible. Discover everything around you and try to understand all the different cultures.
Other comments
The school is very conscious that students come from different countries, so they do welcome us in the best way in order our adaptation to the new place is as pleasant as possible. Tandem Köln also offers the possibility of combining classes in the morning with activities in the evenings, which favors the integration with the rest of the students.

Response from school
Our former school was small, but okay. We moved into our new and very nice facilities in July 2006. The student himself did not assist regularly to class, so his progress in learning German couldn't be really good. The other students of his class have been happy with the quality of teaching.

There are many Spanish people here. Almost every day they have parties at the public bar or someone's house. We had a lot of fun here in Cologne!
