These lines reach the centre of the city in around 20 mins. The Alexanderplatz Train station is a 15-minute tram ride from the school.

The Government District has the Reichstag Building and the Brandenburg Gate are to the south west of Berlin. These are 30 minutes from the school.

Course structure: The school offers general German group classes for those wanting to learn more about the day-to-day use of the language.

Student opinions about BWS Germanlingua, Berlin

After attending some language courses in other schools, I enjoyed a lot my experience at BWS Germanlingua, Berlin. The school is not so big, then you can easily make friends and receive a personalized attention by the managers and teachers. Since the first day I realized that the school was very organized and that they were really concerned about your right placement and learning process. They provided us good support teaching material. The groups are always not big, that means I could improve a lot my skills on speaking, listening, writing and reading.
