Summer courses in Potsdam
Potsdam lies in a striking distance to Berlin and with public transport it only takes 40 minutes to get from one to the other. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a significant difference between the capital of Germany and the capital of Brandenburg. Potsdam is, in contrast to the always changing metropole, still rich in history. The famous castles Sanssouci, the New Palais or the Orangerie and its gardens are located there. And although it offers many historic sights Potsdam is definitely not outdated. The city is very popular and attractive for young people. 15% of the inhabitans are students and the film studio Babelsberg is also a magnet for the young, creative scene.
Listening, speaking and reading within a playful, creative context form the core of the tuition that is much practice-oriented. Tuition always takes place in the mornings. Courses are supplemented by afternoon excursions that are carefully prepared by the teaching staff and later discussed in class On free afternoons you will have an opportunity to discover the German culture with your new friends, have fun and put into practice the newly acquired knowledge..
