What we like about the school

  • Vienna is one of the top destinations our students liked most
  • Excellent nationality mix. No student nationality makes up more than 15% 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: The school is situated in the very centre of Vienna, close to the main sights and attractions.
  • The language school Wien Sprachschule was founded in Vienna, Austria in 1988.

Student opinions about Wien Sprachschule, Vienna
Liked
I had two different teachers for a grammar part and a conversation part. However, as they should have had a meeting in advance, both of them gave us the informative classes. They were friendly and motivated the students very well. So, I could ask the questions without any hesitation. The school staff were helpful and made a ticket reservation of a concert for me.

Excellent location, very nice teachers, classes conducted exclusively in German.
Disliked
Class size was quite large, and the language level of the students was not always consistent (more and less advanced students were together), making it more challenging to progress.
