What we dislike about the school

  • Lessons are for 40 minutes shorter than in most schools.

EF International Language Center (EF)

  • EF International Language Center Berlin is located in the diverse and culturally rich city of Berlin, Germany. The school is just a short distance from the Landwehr Canal and Schöneberger Wiese Park, with excellent links to local transport, offering the city and its riches to all. Famous for its forward-thinking art, glorious food, and incomparable history, Berlin is a fantastic location for students of all ages to further their German studies. Within a 30-minute journey of such sites as the Brandenburg Gate, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, the Großer Tiergarten, the Berlin Wall Memorial and the East Side Gallery, students of EF Berlin have much to see and do whilst reaching their language goals in Berlin. Berlin Central Station is within a 25-minute journey of the school, ...
    ensuring that all travel to and from the city, can be made with ease.

    The school's facilities offer everything that a student may need to feel comfortable and motivated in a learning environment. Housed within a renovated historic building, with its very own in-house Starbucks, EF Berlin offers students a computer lab, a library, lounge area, table games and much more. All classrooms are equipped with air conditioning, heating and have ample natural light to create an optimal learning environment.

    Course selection ranges from General German, available to students of all levels, to Internship programmes and private tuition. EF Berlin offers all of its courses in conjunction with accommodation, enabling all students to enjoy Berlin to its fullest whilst enjoying the comforts of a Homestay family, for example.

    EF was founded in Sweden in 1965. It has since then helped millions of people experience new cultures, see new places and learn new things about the world and about themselves. Across the globe, they have more than 600 schools and offices in over 50 countries, delivering the best in education and student care throughout all locations. As a group, EF has hubs in Boston, London, Barcelona, Mexico City, São Paulo, Shanghai, Stockholm, Zürich, and more!

    EF understands that language programmes can be much more than the sole process of learning a language, as cultural immersion and diversity play a key part in any student's educational and life development.

    Throughout the EF schools, programmes are readily available to adults and juniors, for career, personal and educational development.

<&&TITLE>Preferential Terms in Case of Visa Refusal<&&ENDTITLE>
The majority of our partner schools have agreed to our special exclusive policy by which they will refund any paid tuition fees and will only charge the minimum amount to cover administrative fees, provided that official documentation of this refusal is received at least 3 weeks before your course start date. This amount will never exceed 180€.  Depending on your chosen destination, it might be necessary for you to pay the full cost of your course in advance before visa application support documents can be issued.   In the unpleasant event of your visa application being rejected, our aim is to avoid excessive cancellation fees which might potentially create an unexpected financial burden.
