The language school zum Ehrstein was founded in Freiburg in 1999 and has enjoyed steady growth. The school has two locations in the center of Freiburg; our main classroom facility lies next to a picturesque city square and is only a few steps away from the world-famous Freiburg University.
On average, we offer language instruction every day to between 100 - 150 students from over 40 countries. With its 12 brightly-lit classrooms and 750 sq/m of space, our school offers ample room for language instruction. In addition we offer our students an internet café, a cozy common room and a roof-top terrace garden where they can relax.
Our courses are based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Foreign Languages (CEFR) with levels ranging from A1 - C1. The number of students in our standard courses is limited to a maximum of 12 participants. Our language teachers are experienced native speakers with a broad knowledge of the language and the country and make use of a wide range of modern teaching methods. Our instruction emphasizes the communicative and practice-oriented aspects of the language and is geared to meet the demands of students who are highly motivated and have a desire to learn.
In our school we pay special attention to creating a friendly and personable atmosphere. We also offer many additional services to our students such as arranging for private accommodations, an interesting and varied leisure and cultural program, an airport pick-up service, medical insurance, internships in German companies and much more.
Ehrstein is a licensed test center for telc (The European Language Certificates) as well as TestDaF. In addition, we specialize in preparing foreign students for the admission tests (TestDaf, telc C1 Hochschule and DSH) to German universities.
Since February 2016, Ehrstein Language School is member of the worldwide organization of International House language schools and thereby guarantees highest quality standards. Further information can be found here.
