I attended a course at Sprachenatelier Berlin and I really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. My German dramatically improved from the daily classes and the supportive teachers who made me feel comfortable in the teaching environment and brave enough to start practising with the language outside as well as inside the classroom.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Kulturprogramm. Every week we went somewhere different in Berlin to to visit a museum, art gallery or some sort of fun activity such as going to the cinema or bowling. Doing these sorts of activities really made the difference as I was able to make friends and had the opportunity to try out new things that I would never have otherwise thought about! The school also organised Stammtisch for us which gave us a chance to relax and unwind with coursemates in a pub-environment and practice German or just have general good conversation and chill out.
In terms of accommodation, I found the Sprachenatelier team extremely helpful in providing all the information I needed to know in order to look for an apartment in Berlin. The school does not have its own accommodation but they were able to put me in contact with a host family.
Post-program, I feel a much more well-rounded individual and I feel at home in Berlin. I would consider the friends and staff I met at Sprachenatelier like a family and I will be going back for another course during the summer. I would recommend the summer course to those who are looking for a different and enriching way to spend their summer vacation as there are activities everyday after lessons . Here's a link direct to the summer program for those looking to learn more. https://www.sprachenatelier-berlin.de/en/article/982.german-summer-courses-berlin-germany.html
