What our students said about Munich

Rating: 5/5

5.0

The city was clean, safe and really easy to get around. It was easy to feel at home in the neighbourhood. There were many cultural activities available, shopping was awesome, giving many options for a range of prices and styles. The architecture, to me, was one of the the most beautiful parts. Munich is also only a train ride away from lakes and hiking in the mountains.

I liked everything.
I was there with my son. We were in different groups, as he had already studied German before. We liked everything. The courses give real results. Compared to the courses provided in my native country, I can say with confidence that courses in the language environment give a much better result !!!

Our C1 teacher Gabriella was great. She always brought different topics of conversation and we all had to talk about it. In just one week, my German level has gone very high.

Definitely teachers - Susanne and Lydia. Charismatic, well-prepared, open, just perfect.
Conveniently located - straight after classes you can easily make great trips from HBF (Starnberger See - only half an hour with S-Bahn!). If all the teachers offer such a quality of learning - this is a perfect school! But I can only talk about C1 level. The only disadvantage for me was that extra-curricular activities are almost not working. BUT you can organise everything on yourself, so take your chance to do so.
