Language School Insula in Cologne
Learn German at Insula
You want to learn German? You are looking for a language course which caters to you and your wishes? A language course in which you advance rapidly and which also means a lot of fun? Then do not lose time and come to Insula in Cologne!
We offer you vivid, creative and challenging classes in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and beyond that we never forget that learning German can be really difficult.
Our classes are focused on the speaking activity of the students and as always the students and their individual strengths and weaknesses are the center of attention during the lessons. We avoid the classical student-teacher-model and as of the first lesson the classes are rich in social-interactive and communicative exercises.
To practice the use of German against a realistic background, we organize several trips into the „real world“- for example to the weekly market.
The Insula Café and the little library of the school give the students the opportunity to use their knowledge of German and to get in touch with other students. The course participants and their friends are certainly invited to the film evenings taking place regularly in the Insula. In their free time there is also the possibility to attend at a (German!) guided tour through the city which linguistically is oriented to their specific language skills.
Another highlight in the free-time-offer of the school are the trips with the Insula bus in the closer surrounding of Cologne.
Our team only consists of young and creative language teacher who are well trained (Teacher Training International House or Goethe Certificate) and who have a lot of teaching experience. Every teacher spends an extremely high amount of time to prepare carefully every single teaching module. In doing so, the progression occurs in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) but the vocabulary and the content of the linguistic exercises are adjusted exactly to the prevailing class.
Types of classes
In principle the Insula offers 3 different types of classes:
Intensive courses taking part during the day; reduced classes with 2-4 lessons a week (conversation/ standard/ restructuring) and workshops on Saturdays (short but compact classes to specific themes e.g. How to telephone; How to talk in front of an audience; short film; articles…). Beyond that, we always try to take the wishes of the participants in reference to the class model into account. The material used in the lessons is provided from us and there is no need to purchase oneself a textbook. To keep our quality standards, the maximal group size is up to 10 participants.
Concerning the course fee, we accept a payment by Bildungsscheck or Bildungsprämie. If you have any questions related to these payment possibility we inform you with pleasure about the formalities on application.
