What we like about the school

  • Free city walking tours and museum visits.
  • Excellent nationality mix. No student nationality makes up more than 10% of students.

What we dislike about the school

  • Do not offer favorable cancellation terms in the case of a student getting a visa rejected.
  • Lessons are 45 minutes long, which is shorter than in other schools.

Location in Frankfurt: The school is found to the south west of the city, in an up and coming neighborhood known as Bahnhofsviertel. It has a good night scene, with a selection of clubs, bars and live music venues. The area also has a wide range of restaurants to choose from.

Navigating the city: The main train station in Frankfurt, the Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof, is 7 minutes by foot from the school. There are many train lines leaving from here to nearby cities. The area is a travel hub with lots of bus stations, and an U-bahn station for both Line Four and Line Five. On the way to the station, students will pass a tram stop, which has a selection of routes running through it.

Main features: The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt art gallery, Römerberg square and Museum für Moderne Kunst are all located in the heart of Frankfurt. These are a 15-minute walk from DID Deutsch-Institut, and for a scenic option, students can walk along the Main River. The Städel Museum is across the river, and to reach here students will need to cross the Holbeinsteg - Frankfurt am Main. It takes around 7 minutes to get here from the school.

Courses at DID Deutsch-Institut: The school has created a number of interesting German courses covering a range of topics to accommodate students' learning needs. There are general German courses for those wanting to learn the general use of the language, exam courses to prepare students for German exams, business classes for the use of German in the business world, a teacher training programme to teach German to international students, an internship programme and a university package to help students further their education.

School chain: DID Deutsch-Institut teaches German to international students in a number of cities throughout Germany. They focus on providing students with a complete German experience in an immersive environment. There are young learner programmes as either a summer camp or a homestay option. The summer camps take place in German speaking cities in both Germany and Austria.

The schools have been approved for their accomplishments by the FDSV, and are a member of the FaDaF. DID Deutsch-Institut has won various awards for their high performance as a German language school.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Be aware that not all lessons are timetabled for the morning sessions
Other comments: I made my own arrangements for accommodation. New students are given assessment paper which had to be completed in the small busy reception area, and interviewed in the same noisy area as a group of new students were being conducted about the school. It could be organised better by using a classroom and more staff to interview. The school knows how many new students need to be assessed and interviewed. Otherwise I had a good experience over the two weeks but I found the first morning very stressful.
The staff is very attentive and friendly and the course itself was interesting.
