What is an intensive course?
For those of us that need a little push, an intensive course is the solution. Other types of courses are held for shorter class lengths or only held a few days every week. Learning in high school or grade school is sporadic and inconsistent which leads to our knowledge and mastery of the language to be the same. Taking an intensive German course in Berlin has proven to be significantly beneficial. DAS Akademie is right at the centre of Berlin, 10 minutes by foot to Alexanderplatz.
So what is an intensive course and what makes it successful?
First and foremost, not all intensive courses are the same. Typically courses begin in the summer as younger students have a break and have the availability and free time to focus on the course. Intensive courses are typically comprise of 20 lessons spanning of the time of 2-4 weeks. Intensive courses can range from 1 week to 10 weeks per level. They can have different focuses. Some focus on grammar, conversation, or vocabulary, but it is often a combination of all of them. The main key characteristics of an intensive course are namely that they teach you a lot in a minimal amount of time. They all include reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension. A few intensive courses include language immersion as a learning technique.
Intensive German Course: Variety In Berlin
DAS Akademie offers an intensive German language course in Berlin from 1 week up to 52 weeks, held Monday through Friday, in the morning for approximately 3 hours. Teachers give 20 lessons per week, with 4 weeks to complete a level. Lessons use language immersion and include a high degree of participation. In contrast, other schools offer three levels of Intensive, Intensive Plus, which includes more lessons, and Intensive Special, which includes private instruction. Some schools may offer a course which is 3 hours per day and occurring 4 days per week, whereas other schools might offer a course that runs 4.5 hours per day, 5 days per week, and with courses that can run from 2-8 weeks. Many schools offer custom length as well. Some schools have courses that run 10 weeks or more, are organized by age. Many courses are also cheaper the more weeks you book.
Specializing For Success
Why the differences? Because students have different goals and reasons for taking a language course. It can depend on the environment, as students spend a lot of time together, as well as with their teacher. Another key difference is exam preparation. Different schools offer distinct certificates and test preparation. Many courses are structured toward the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and prepare for the TestDaF or an international standard language certificate such as the Cambridge Certificate. Different schools specialize in their respective teaching method, for example the highly successful immersion method used at DAS Akademie. That being said, intensive courses are best for ambitious motivated students. They require much more time and effort than other courses. But for a quicker and more successful language experience, an intensive course is the best option. With an intensive course, becoming bi-, tri-, or multi-lingual is possible!
