Before travelling to Hamburg, I was looking for institutes or academies where I could learn German. I found a few institutes on the internet, but I couldn’t decide between them. My host mom then recommended me an academy and insisted that I should register there and pay for my course two months in advance. But there was something which didn’t convince me – you may call it the “Sixth Sense”. 😉
I threw myself to the fate of arriving in Hamburg without enrolling in any academy and upon arrival, I was fortunate to meet a little angel who recommended me the intensive course at DeutschAkademie Hamburg. I took an online placement test and the next day I went to the office to register and pay for my first course A2(1). I was very lucky because I could find a place two weeks before the start of the classes and enter a level according to my previous knowledge of German.
The next week I did a city tour and while talking with the guide, she asked me about my language course – and I said that I joined DeutschAkademie. She assured me it was the best language course in Hamburg. Now I´ve been there for one month and I can recommend it 200 %, not only because of the way they handle the level contents, but also beacuse of the teachers, all the staff (which is always there for you when you need it), the facilities and the opportunity to learn and practice daily. Please look forward to my next blog!
