Learning German in Germany

Learning German in Germany

German classes in Germany   Shortly after arriving in Esslingen in September 2016, I signed up for a B2 level German class at the Hochschule Esslingen. I had earlier finished my B2.1 level at The Languedge and wanted to further advance my German language skills. The course was arranged by the Hochschule free of charge with a private instructor. Course fee and structure Unpaid courses are not common in Germany, since taking up a course outside at a Sprachschule (Language Institute) usually costs 180-220 Euros/course (average) with around 50-60 learning units (All classes in Germany are mentioned as number of Learning Units (UE), each UE being 45 minutes). Few private tutors also offer classes that are charged on an hourly basis. Another important point to bear in mind is, unlike in India, courses in Germany are not structured as A1, A2, etc. Instead each level is split into 2 courses and this means an A1 level comprises of a course in A1.1 and then an...

Germany – For the car freak in me!

Germany – For the car freak in me!

Tracing my path from SRM to TechnischeHochschule Ingolstadt   It all started in the second year at SRM when we were given a choice to choose foreign languages for the next two semesters. Being a student of Mechanical department, it was but natural that the first choice of language would be German. However due to limited availability, I could not take up the subject and instead ended up learning a different language (it is always advantageous to know more languages). My main aim for choosing Mechanical was the exuberant auto maniac inside me who wanted to learn intrinsically about automobiles. During my third year of engineering, I interacted with many erudite people from several auto industries as well as seniors abroad and everyone had only one thing to say – “Germany is THE destination for car freaks! The technology and design in the automobile field is unmatched”. After receiving so many positive responses towards Germany, I started my own research for different courses...

Hello All, I am Gayathri, a practicing doctor of Homeopathy. I have chosen to learn German - The source language of Homoeopathy, in order to decipher lots of texts regarding the subject in the source language itself.  Besides this, I love learning new languages. I have been with LANGUEDGE for past 8 months.I have done 2 intermediate levels with The Languedge.It helped me in developing confidence about the language.I  got oppurtunities to interact with students of various levels,which supported me in improving the oral communication and to overcome my initial hesitation. I feel I have got a better hold in German because of LANGUEDGE. With regard to the the classroom,it is with proper lighting and ventilation.The seating arrangements are also good and comfortable. Several displays hang in the classroom walls,which provide various important information about the language and keep you enganged.Enough handouts are given to workout and to practice at home. The tutor finds the weakest area or the part where a student is unable...

German classes to Germany for studies

German classes to Germany for studies

When I started learning German it was just for the sake of it, I was happy I was using my weekend very well. I was a strong believer that you learn the culture through learning a language. Meanwhile I wanted to give a boost to my career and I was looking for places to do my Masters in the field of Sports Management I was looking at the United Kingdom which had great universities for Sports Business.  I did not consider the Unites States because their sporting culture was different to that of the Indian one, so United Kingdom it was. I was not planning to come to Germany, because it is known for its Technical Education and not business oriented education. But as I was attending the German Language class I was impressed by 1. The way the Germans work and the level of professionalism they have attained 2. How strong their economy is emerging despite the fact that they don’t do business in...

Wann wir einen starken Glaube dafuer haben, dass etwas passieren soll, wird es immer bestimmt passieren. Es ist nur eine Sache der Zeit und der Ehrlichkeit ! Ich habe mich dafuer interessiert, eine Fremdsprache zu lernen, wann ich schon an der Uni war. Weil ich einen Auto-Ingenieurwissenschaft student war, waehle ich Deutsch aus. Ich habe meinen Sprachkurs schon in 2010 begonnen, wann ich in meinem zweiten Jahr war. Waehrend meinen A1 Kurs, habe ich meine Lehrerin Frau Mathangi kennengelernt. Und der Rest ist bekannt ! Wir haben viele Briefe geschrieben und Aktivitaeten gemacht. Ich war auch den Klassensprecher (wie immer) waehrend dem Kurs. Wann wir unsere Zeugnisse bekommen, habe ich schon meine erste Rede (bestimmt mit Hilfe meiner Lehrerin) in Deutsch in einen grossen Hoersaal gegeben . Nach dem Kurs auch, gibt meine Lehrerin mir Tipps und hilft mir Deutsch weiterzulernen. Leider konnte ich nicht weiter nach A2 in 2011 studieren. Aber alles zu seiner Zeit ! Um meine A2 Unterrichten teilzunehmen, musste ich viel...

New beginnings are tough -Testimonial

It’s true that all the beginnings are difficult, but if you have the correct guidance paired with articulate teaching, you will surely have an EDGE in the German language at Languedge. It has been an eventful and an amazing year with Languedge – the everyday classes, Rollenspiels and Sprechen at weekends, the perfect guidance for the exams, the insightful thoughts about German culture, the numerous creative works auf Deutsch, and the unforgettable Stadtreise……. Hat’s off to you ma’am for putting in all the effort and hard work for making Deutsch such an interesting language for me. The energy and the enthusiasm that you displayed inspired me to challenge myself. Der Ton macht die Musik- The way of teaching at Languedge is something I had never experienced before. The numerous activities and games in German made me so engrossed in the language that I started to think in Deutsch. The entire coursework transformed me and has changed my thinking, thanks to the numerous...
