  • I had read about the Institute and thought it was a centre for German culture. While it does host German movie showings it is primarily a language school and not ( as I had assumed ) a German tourist....  more »

  • I am not happy with this institute at all. I was zero in German(zero- it means you don’t know even letters), so had course A1.1 First of all I would like to mention that it is not my first language. I am not native English speaker and 3 years ago studied it too. So I have experience. The biggest problem that this course is not for people who didn’t have any knowledge of German. They don’t explain many important things. Then they give you exercises and somehow you have to do them. Exercises are full of words which you didn’t learn and rules which you don’t know yet. It confuses you, makes you angry. In fact you just loose desire to learn. Rules which they explain they explain very often in German 😳 How can human without knowing the language understand? Of course there are people who get everything very fast but unfortunately I am not that 1% of geniuses. The course is too fast and not for absolute beginners.
  • Very bad customer service. It takes long time (it has been over 2 weeks and still waiting) to get back to your reply and the receptionist is very unfriendly. Please carefully choose your teacher. My teacher is like a 19th century primary school teacher. she picks up each person to read text book sentences and answer the question, not in a way of motivating you. it is more like a patronising you. They told me that I should ask the teacher to change her teaching style. really? is it my job after all? They don't care of students? I could not change my class either. What a waste of money. 'Rosetta stone' is much better to learn the language.
