Fantastic experience taking day-time intensive courses over two months. The instructors are excellent, and the staff are always happy/able to answer any questions. This was my best German language school experience in Berlin.

This place is fantastic for learning German and actually enjoying it. The teachers are all excellent in their field. Each evening I went there I left feeling that I had massively improved my German.

Expath has two central language schools in Berlin. Both locations feature free coffee, tea and WIFI for all students. Note that for beginners, weekend classes are only in Neukölln in the winter, and in Mitte in the summer.
Mitte / Prenzlauer Berg
Since May 2017, we've taken over a former doctor's office to serve students in Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg and northern Berlin. This school is located on the 5th floor (don't worry - there's an elevator), right on Rosenthaler Platz, and features two bathrooms, multiple balconies and a great view over the square.
