Language schools nowadays are becoming the foundation stone of international relations. Did you know that, even in 1974, it was compulsory to learn at least one foreign language in every member state of the European Union, apart from the UK (excluding Scotland) and Ireland? 20 years later, almost every pupil in Europe was learning a second language as part of their primary education. Following that, language schools experienced a surge in demand as it became necessary for students to learn two foreign languages at secondary school level.

Nowadays, pupils benefit from 3-4 hours of language teaching in schools per week. This is where language schools come in.

According to a report in 2016, the majority of German learners decide to pick up the language due to a desire or requirement relating to further studies. This would suggest that more and more post-graduate students are pursuing a new life in a German-speaking country, and need to learn the local language.

Why should I learn German at a language school?

Easy: a language school like DAS Akademie will always focus on one thing – languages! Our target is to make all of our students feel confident and comfortable enough to be able to speak a language fluently and effectively.

In our Berlin language school, we offer a no-desk, no-stress approach. When you walk through the doors, the first thing you will notice is our spacious classrooms, which are fitted with chairs and whiteboards to make sure that your speaking skills are developed first and foremost. The first language school was opened way before the start of the 1900s, and we believe that we have hand-picked the best teachers since that period, to help you reach your full potential. Now you know about the importance of learning a language, and we’re sure that your motivation will continue to increase!

Let’s Learn New Languages!

In brief, learning a new language at our language school means studying in a warm and relaxed environment. When ready, grab a coffee or a snack before your class for additional good karma. Our friendly and certified teachers especially want to see you come out of your language comfort zone and thrive!
