Teaching philosophy of our language school? Our students are at the forefront of everything we do. They are at the center of our philosophy. We aim to help them to better understand how they learn best by applying the most student-centered and activity-based teaching methods in all classes. If a student misses class, our language school will update them on what they missed as well as send them the homework; because we care!
The most important thing when we learn a new language is to enjoy the process of learning. Hence our motto, “Erst lachen, dann machen.”
Because unless it’s fun, you won’t learn!
This philosophy underpins everything we do. In order to help you learn, we immerse you in meaningful games that connect to real-life contexts and situations. Moreover, our focus is helping you speak from day one. In this way, you will acquire the language out of necessity for communication, as you did with your first language.
Cherry Picked Teachers and Small Classes
Our experienced teachers are motivated and committed to your learning. Small classes with an average of six and a maximum of twelve students per class guarantee not only an intensive and efficient learning process, but also great group dynamics. No matter where you’re from, what language you’re learning or how long you study with us – your learning and enjoyment take the forefront in our Berlin language school. Most importantly, we are always open to your feedback.
We make you speak!
Walk into our language school in Berlin Mitte and you will feel at home with our personal, friendly and welcoming approach to language learning. Step into a classroom and you will immediately notice something very different to almost every other language school in Berlin–no desks! DAS Akademie has a very creative and hands on teaching method focusing predominantly on speaking. Much of the lesson is spent moving around the room, communicating in pairs, or in small groups.
