Most recent student reviews of language schools in Hamburg

Rating: 4.1/5.0

4.1/5.0 | 59 reviews

Teachers were really great like Nils & Sigrid.
Great value & teaching. Small tip - teachers should check to ensure all class members have “got the point/understood”, not just the ones that answer quickly. They should also make available some “high volume” working exercises for each specific point, to allow students to thoroughly practice. Currently the number of worked examples is more aimed at demonstrating the issues & then a few tests, rather than multiple examples to ensure the points are fully trained.

Good quality teaching.
Shame that I got no teaching on the first day as I sat around a long time waiting for language level assessment. The cultural activities were cancelled as they will only run an activity if 5 or more people have signed up.

the neighborhood, the school is secure, is accessed only with passes the kindness
First day organisation is poor. On the confirmation document was only indicated one hour of presentation. The level test is about 20 minutes and you have to wait after the break to enter the course. Thus I've lost 2 x 45 min on Monday morning. I've paid 20 lessons and only followed 18.
