The location is very central and convenient. It’s clean and quiet and I love that the classes are very small.
I would recommend Sprachschule Aktiv.

The course is very good, if you try hard you learn a lot. They are very professional and in the face of any problem they try to help you as much as possible. With the family I was not so lucky, the lady of the house did care for me, but the rest of the family locked themselves in the rooms and hardly spoke to me. But the course made up for it.

The school is always active. Even in Spring, there about 7 or 8 groups on mornings + afternoons. The method is based on 2 Books + audio-cd. It's old but it works.
The course began at 8:45 till 12:45 (a 20min pause included). It's not cut in 45min sessions. I had the same teacher for the whole 4 weeks I spent there. It doesn't matter because she was very experienced and knew what she was doing.

I liked my teacher - a German woman, who could skillfully organize the work, the discipline in the classroom and, moreover, she helped me to write Beverbung. Unfortunately, she was on vacation most of my time at school. I lived in an apartment of an absolutely amazing elderly frau; living conditions, food and atmosphere were wonderful
Lots of refugees from Syria in my group, around 50%. The group is large, more than 20 people.

Great teacher and class members. But if you want to learn seriously, you should study German before your course. The teachers were always using German in class.

I was really enjoying the lessons during the first week. Our teacher was Edda and I have never before had a better language teacher. I met a lot of interesting people and made friends.
I did not like that the first two days. I was in a class of 20 people. I thought that a language course would a maximum of 10 students and not more. I paid for a one-on-one course and I do not understand it why I was in the class with people who were refugees taking the same course paid by the state. So I transferred to another course where there were about 6 people. Among the teachers, Edda was the best and teacher Christel was the worst. Other people were also not satisfied with her. She taught anything and her way of teaching was really unpleasant.

I was in Augsburg for 4 weeks and it was an amazing experience. Teaching in the school is on the high level. In my class, there was a very pleasant atmosphere and everybody wanted to learn German which is great. My homestay was also amazing and the family was very kind. It was 10-15 minutes by bus to the school. If you want to make progress in German and meet new friends, go to the Augsburg. It is definitely worth it!

I spent 2 weeks doing an intensive course at Augsburger Deutschkurse, at the A2 level. I had a really good time, and learned a lot. That being said, nothing about the school was above and beyond, and is probably representative of an average language school in Germany. One frustrating thing is that our teacher also had a role in administration. She'd often have to dart out of the room to deal with things, particularly on Monday mornings. That being said, when she was in the room, she was a great teacher. She spoke very well and took interest in us. She assigned a good amount of homework, and was held us accountable for doing it. She'd take away your phone if you were distracted, which I think is great. The course structure is more-or-less working through a textbook, with some extra handouts as well. My favourite part was when there was discussions (in German) or even short group presentations. On the downside, sometimes we'd spend like 25 minutes going through yesterday's homework or silently working on a worksheet. Given that the answers were available to us (in the back of the book), I wasn't sure if it was a valuable use of class time. These were things we could do outside of the class by ourself without difficulty. The class size was about 15 people with varying ages. I befriended one or two people, and studied with them outside of the classroom. That was a big benefit. All that being said, I would consider Augsburger Deutschkurse again. It was convenient and well-priced. The class time used for conversation was particularly valuable, and the course in general kept me on track with my learning.

The course was very intensive (4 hours a day, with a lot of homework too) which helped me to make great progress in 2 months. Back in my hometown, I can only find a German course with 3 hours a week. And newcomers can join the ADK German course every week, it fits my plan perfectly! I wrote my B1 Prüfung just the day before yesterday, and was happy with the exam organization.
It would be great if there were more classrooms and toilets, then one can lose less time in waiting. The school has no library, but the Städtische Bücherei is just next door, it was acceptable.
