This course is specifically aimed at teachers of German who are keen to fine-tune their German and update themselves on recently published specialized literature and the great variety of materials designed for teaching German. Visits to educational institutions in Berlin can be arranged.
This course has an outline twenty sessions, (rather than lessons), a week in international groups with a maximum of 12 people.
One of the key objectives of this course is to offer teachers of German professional support and give like minded people the opportunity to exchange information on the development and new uses of German.
There will be regular discussions and debate regarding the current cultural, political, social and economic situations in Germany as part of the overall programme. This course is offered either individually or in groups.
Note: This programme fulfills the requirements for teachers of German who work within the European Union to benefit from the employment training grants available in the field of language teaching.
The school offers a daily activity programme to complement and enhance your language studies. Each week there is a list of activities available, posted in the student common room. So activities are free. Others there is a small charge.
Activities include such things as a boat trip around Museum Island or a bike tour along the Berlin wall.
At night GLS guides take you to Friedrichshain: a young and rather alternative district famous for its nightlife
There are also trips on offer to see "Kunstwerke", one of the best addresses for independent art in all of Europe - the cafe there has good cakes! Your author of this masterpiece has eaten far too many cakes at this wonderful cafe and is now on a diet!!
At the week end the school gives you the opportunity to go on full day excursions (extra cost), with a GLS guide to places such as Potsdam, or to Sachsenhausen, a former concentration camp. Every second week the school arranges excursions to places further away like Dresden, Hamburg or Leipzig.
