Language training Berlin

When we embark on creating a language training for a group, we cooperate closely with our partners in order to make their travel wishes and ideas a reality. We take requests of destinations, learning material, course length and preferred free time activities into consideration and do everything to integrate them in the final itinerary.

One of the many language trainings we had the pleasure of running led the group to Berlin. From their travel itinerary you may draw inspiration for your own language travel programme. We are happy to assist.

Language course

It was the goal of this particular group to prepare intensively for their final exams. Therefore ASTUR arranged an itinerary - in close cooperation with the responsible teachers - with the following language classes:

Week 1:

  • Preparation - language placement test
  • Lesson 1 - Parts of speech & current events in Germany
  • Lesson 2 - Syntax & current events in the EU
  • Lesson 3 - Modal verbs & European history of the 19th and 20th centuries
  • Lesson 4 - Tenses I & History of the Cold War in Germany
  • Lesson 5 - Tenses II & International politics

Week 2:

  • Progress evaluation - language placement test
  • Lesson 6 - Text types non-fiction, prose, poetry
  • Lesson 7 - Interpretations & connotations
  • Lesson 8 - Listening comprehension & accents
  • Lesson 9 - Text production I & translation
  • Lesson 10 - Text production II, final test

In class you are encouraged to just talk and not be afraid of your mistakes. Seize this opportunity as speaking the language freely will boost your learning success and motivate you to continue mastering the language in the future.
