The Carl Duisberg Training Center Berlin
The Carl Duisberg Training Center Berlin is located in the city’s “Mitte” district, right in the heart of the capital, in a quiet, inner courtyard. We are within walking distance of landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate, the Gendarmenmarkt and the Reichstag building. The lively street Friedrichstrasse is perfect for leisurely strolls, and the Hanns Eisler Music Academy and Humboldt University are just around the corner.
The Carl Duisberg Training Center is close to public transport and is easily and quickly accessible from all parts of the city. The school has 20 classrooms, a “Lernstudio”, a small Internet café and a recreation room, which is a popular meeting place for our language course participants.
Berlin reflects in an impressive way how Europe is changing and growing together. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall and German re-unification in October 1990, the city has developed into an important worldwide metropolis with so much history: the seat of the parliament, a creative culture center for modern art, a media and trade fair city, as well as a fascinating place for science and research. Numerous renowned universities and an elite university attract students from all over the world.
At the same time the rapidly growing capital with its 3.5 million inhabitants looks back on 800 years of history: historical evidence of this is the Brandenburg Gate, Charlottenburg Palace, the parliament, or the pomp boulevard Unter den Linden. The magnificent choice of museums and the ultra modern new buildings around Potsdamer Platz are no less an attraction.
Berlin’s diverse cultural scene offers attractive cultural highlights the whole year round: for example the annual Berlin Film Festival that attracts international film celebrities to the city on the river Spree, giving it a touch of that Hollywood feeling. Likewise the yearly theater meetings, the Carnival of the Cultures, Christopher Street Day, as well as numerous events at the opera and concert halls are well known far beyond the city limits. Berlin‘s enchanting surroundings are also well worth visiting, especially Potsdam with its unique collection of palaces and gardens of Sanssouci.
As well as experiencing the culture Berlin has to offer, you can relax in the summer on a steamboat trip through Berlin’s numerous waterways, or in one of the many parks, or in one of the colorful beach cafes along the banks of the Spree. In winter you can unwind in one of the saunas or wellness oases, or you can acquaint yourself with the umpteen cafes and tea shops, that are ideal for learning, reading or just chatting.
The minimum age for the Intensive Course 24+6 is 16, in Radolfzell 15. Participants with prior German language skills may begin a German course on any given Monday. The start dates for beginner courses are listed in our brochure.
The Intensive Course 24+6 provides you with the German language skills required for further education, to achieve your career goals and broaden your horizons. In our short-term courses, starting at a duration of one week, you acquire basic knowledge of German or develop your existing language skills in a targeted manner. Prospective university students or those preparing for a professional qualification in Germany can systematically build up the necessary German language skills to meet specific needs in our long-term courses and reach the required language level in best time.
In addition to group language training, the “Lernstudio” is a key component of the Intensive Course 24+6. You may select from the following learning options:
• Learning with a tutor
Carl Duisberg Centren provides you with any and all support to achieve your specific goals. You may study independently or with instruction and seek out help with your homework. Learning a language with others is particularly effective for promoting the social aspect of foreign language learning.
A variety of language learning materials are available at the Carl Duisberg “Lernstudio”. Our experienced trainers conduct workshops and organize projects to help you make the most of your time.
The afternoon program at the “Lernstudio” combined with group language training materials and the leisure program are the ideal language learning combination. The new material that is introduced in the mornings is then effectively put into practice in the afternoons.
There are no classes on holidays. Classes that fall on holidays will not be rescheduled. For exact dates please inquire at the Carl Duisberg Training Center of your choice and/or visit our website.
