Absolutely Fabulous

10/10

So, when I first arrived, I was staying in a hostel room with roommates. There weren't really any inherent problems with it; room sharing just isn't my thing. For that reason, I stayed with a family member who lives in Berlin. All of that being said, the school itself is absolutely great. Very clean and modernly designed. The teachers are absolutely great at what they do. The staff are all very helpful and were always available when I needed something. I would definitely recommend this as long as you have a private room or really don't mind a lack of privacy.

How can this program be improved?

I don't see much way of this program being improved, honestly. It was a fabulous learning experience for me. :)

A really great experience

10/10

I had a really good time in Munich, in this short time i have really learned German well and made lots of friends from abroad ! Different culture and different language at the same time during this time. You can see lots of things here and explore lots of places, and especially the beer here is really cheap. The people from Munich are really friendly, you can talk with them on the train or other place, they will be really happy to talk to you and help you.

Perfect way to learn German and meet new people

10/10

I've participated in the program twice and I look forward to doing it again next year.
It's a great opportunity to develop your language skills while still enjoying Munich and your holidays. You can make new friends with people from many different countries and continents. At the same time the school is very professional and well situated, only 5 minutes walking from the English Garden, right next to 'Lehel' underground station and also quite close to Munich's old town.

During my visits I stayed at the EF Residence in Geiger Hotel as well as in the EF Residence close to Olympia Einkaufszentrum. I can recommend both, but second one is exclusively for EF Students, which makes it a great way to spend more time with your new friends and also - in my opinion - it has better standard as it has been open for 2 months right now, so everything is new and working. Rooms are very quiet, clean and contain of a bathroom, a kitchen and one or two beds - depending on your accommodation choice. There is also a common balcony, laundry facility (€2,50 per washing and €1,50 per drying) and a lounge with a big table, sofas and XBOX One. WiFi works very well in the residence as well as at school.

Munich itself is a stunning city, not distant from the Alps and it is the capital city of Bavaria, Germany's biggest federal state. It has a very rich culture, many recreational sites (such as Olympic Park and the English Garden). There are also lots of museums, shopping centres and restaurants. Also, Munich is famous of its Biergartens (Beer gardens), where you can bring your own food (or buy it there) and enjoy the world's best beer. If you'd like to make excursions - Nurnberg, Salzburg, the Alps, beautiful lakes and historical sites are situated in 2-hours distance by train. Around Munich you can get everywhere by public transport for €21 per week.

I had an amazing time!!

10/10

One day my friends and I decided to rent bikes and bike around the city. We had a ton of fun traveling around together like locals. We biked to the East Side Gallery where there is a large portion of the Berlin wall still standing. We walked along the wall admiring the artwork and talking. Then we went to a grocery store and got food for a picnic next to the Spree river. It was overall an amazing day. also, it is so much fun to meet people from all over the world here. Now i have friends from Argentina, the Netherlands, Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, France, and Italy. i had the time of my life on this trip and i definitely wish that I could stay longer!

How can this program be improved?

The only thing that I can think of that could be improved is if the classes were at better times. Sometimes my friends would finish class at 14:00, but then I would not start until then and then I would finish at 18:30. Other than that though everything was great.

EF Munich review

9/10

Munich is a great city. Its very easy and affordable to get around thanks to the public infrastructure, so there is never any difficulty finding stuff to do. EF provides lots of activities that focus around the obvious language learning aspect, and also has many that are great ways to meet new people. The teachers are all very helpful and have a clear knowledge of the language. The rest of the staff as well is very friendly and helpful.

EF München

9/10

My experience with EF München was excellent. First of all the city was lovely, beautiful, and at all times I felt safe. The support from EF staff was impeccable, always aware and helpful with all mine and the rest of the students needs, making sure we were satisfied and everything was fine. Another aspect of EF München that I was pleased with was the social life with the students, I made many friends all over the world and not only learned and improved my German, I learned about different cultures. I recommend this language course. Dankeschön

EF Munich

8/10

Overall, I had a really great time in Munich with EF. I took an intensive course and learned quite a bit of German in just 5 weeks. I started at A1.1 and advanced to A2.1. It is also really easy to meet people and make friends from all over the world. The excursions were generally really well organised and they took us to interesting places. If you choose to do this, I reccomend staying at the EF residence or in the EF hotel, espescially if you go in the summer as availability in the summer is limited and if you have problems with a host family it is sometimes difficult to move. The facilities are really nice and modern not too far from the school. But overall I had an incredible time- the school is centrally located and Munich is a really safe and fun place to live.

EF München.

8/10

I think EF Munich and EF in general, because I also was 3 months in Singapore, is really usefull: on one way to learn a language with a really efficient way and on another way by developing our self skills. I mean I´ve never learned so much about myself, you begin some one smarter, maturer, and you are more clear in you ideas by thinking or to take decisions. It´s not only a language school but also a life school.
Now I know correctly German and English and that´s something fabulous, I´m also motivated, more than before to learn other languages out of the others I´ve already learned, because you meet lot of people from everywhere in the world and it´s also a really grateful experience.

Here in Munich is the staff really super, almost everybody cares how you feel/are and it´s really easy to have a clear discussion. The atmosphere between staff and students is in general really good, and it helps. I´ve also learned from my guest family, they weren´t so good but I´ve learned to be patient and to enforce/impose myself.

To sum up, I absolutely don´t regret this adventure, because I learned to extend my limits, my vision of the world and to know what I want!

PS: Dedication to Jan and his Leberkäse. ;-)

EF Berlin

10/10

EF Berlin is the perfect place to learn German and have incredible amounts of fun at the same time. All of the students and staff here were very outgoing and welcoming. It's hard moving to a new country and city where you don't really know anybody. EF Staff and the students made it much easier. If you are wanting to learn a new language or wanting to visit a beautiful city, I would highly recommend going to EF Berlin.

Berlin

9/10

That day when I arrived in Berlin for the very first time will always remain in my memories. It was such a great feeling. When I saw the Brandeburger Gate, symbol of this amazing city, I was fulfilled with happiness. Two hours passed and I was still there, enjoying the view. Time was already flying. I was grateful for having the opportunity to discover this city. A dream came true. And I wish I will again have the same experience.
