Course Options and Prices


One-to-one - standard at the Language Guesthouse



One-to-One Classes

One-to-one instruction is standard at the Language Guesthouse.
It is the ideal course for all those, who are willing to study intensively and make good progress in a limited period of time. It is ideal too for those with special requirements concerning their language training or with special preconditions of learning or maybe special disabilities It's the option for those who learn faster, slower or simply in a different way than the average learner. Last not least one-to-one classes are a good choice for students, who feel ashamed of their errors and anxious to speak in a group.

In our individual lessons the student sets the pace of progress. His type of learning and peculiar preconditions, her personal interests, strengths and weaknesses are the prerequisites tuition will be attuned to. Fast learners make fast progress; those who need more time won't come under pressure.

The student's aim is the teacher's task, whether the point is to close some gap in grammar knowledge, to improve oral or written expression, to acquire the terminology of technical language or to pass a language exam, whether you need German skills for your job, your academic studies or just for your upcoming holidays.

The Language Guesthouse offers one-to-one courses of different length and intensity: one week or several months, Minimum 10 units per week, maximum 30.

You'd like to know about the actual level of your German skills?

Take our free and not binding online placement test! It will test your knowledge in grammar and vocabulary in the range of beginner's to B1 level. Send the completed test form to the Language guesthouse, and you will get it back within a few days with corrections and an individual placement recommendation. Download /placement test



Course offer for Couples, Groups and Families

Couples or groups of students (up to 5 students) who register for a language and/or activity programme, pay reduced instruction fees per person compared with individual classes (see table below). All participants should have similar levels of existing knowledge. If you bring along some discipline and are ready to "forget" your native language during your stay at the Language Guesthouse, studying in a mini group will be enjoyable and almost as efficient as individual classes.

Special arrangements are possible for families with children (3-10y of age). Children learn languages in a different way from adults. Therefore in our parent-child programmes Mums and Dads get their daily lesson and children get theirs. During parents' lesson we'll find a German nanny, who looks after the kids. But for an hour or two all of us meet to play German games, read German children's story books and sing German songs.

For parents with baby kids we offer to organize childcare for the time of parents' lessons.

Please ask me, if you're interested in such a parent-child programme. I'm certain to make you an attractive offer.
