At Anda Sprachschule we offer German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese courses for adults, as well as for companies. Our teachers are all native speakers and highly qualified and experienced, and have a true passion for teaching languages. At Anda you will have the chance to learn languages in small groups of 6 students on average. From the very beginning our two main focuses are communication and a solid grammatical base. We use flexible teaching methods and provide personal attention, so that all our students can achieve their goals and make the most of their stay at our school. All of our courses are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. We want our students not only to be able to communicate and socialize in the target language, but also to have the chance to experience a cultural exchange, since we firmly consider learning a new language more than just learning the language itself. In order to encourage that integration, we organize different cultural activities every week, so that the students can get to know a bit more about the city and its culture. On top of that, we see it as a great opportunity for them to get to know each other better.

The children's language school Berlin was founded in 2001 and is a market leader in the field of early language acquisition in Berlin. It is primarily children aged 3 to 12 that learn at our school. We are presently represented in over 140 institutions. Our mobile play-instructors come to kindergartens and elementary schools where they play with the children in their familiar surroundings using their respective mother tongue. We offer children's courses in English, Spanish, French and German. An increasing number of primary schools take advantage of our offer as a supplement to their school lessons. We would also gladly prepare your children for attendance at an English-speaking Elementary- and Europa-School or meet any other individual requests you might have. In our centrally located premises at Bundesplatz we can offer you a wide choice of courses on weekdays, in the afternoons or on Saturday mornings. The rooms have been especially arranged to meet the needs of children. It is possible to enter a course in progress at any time. Further locations are situated all over Berlin. In addition to our choice of courses we also offer Daycamps for children aged 4 to 12. For the little ones this is fun pure and an unforgettable experience as well as a good investment in their future. From the time of its birth every child has acquired the natural abilities to learn a language. They can imitate the sounds they hear, then understand words and later form sentences before finally mastering the language fully. These skills can also be tapped for a second or third language which then penetrates, like the mother tongue, via another section of the brain into much deeper layers than an additional language learnt in later years. There is a good early language learning possibility which has proved its worth in Canada for the past thirty years. In this so-called immersion method children are thrown into a language bath where they first splash around and then start swimming with pleasure. A language is learnt by moving around in that language, by living in it. It has been scientifically proven that different areas of the brain are activated when small children and adults are learning. When children learn languages, the same part of the brain is involved as when they learn their mother tongue. However, according to the principle of Total Physical Response it is considerably easier for them to learn a further language in conjunction with the perception of all senses. In the children's language school we avoid artificial communication as in conventional language lessons. Language is taught without any classical textbooks. Children play in whatever language they are learning. Our children enter a new language world playfully and effortlessly and without being overtaxed learn a foreign language with all their senses seemingly quite involuntarily.

Constance, however, seems to be unhurried and laid-back with only 85,000 inhabitants, while it is rated as one of Germany’s towns with the highest quality of life due to its gorgeous location right next to Lake Constance and its proximity to Switzerland and the Alps. Intercity bus transfer between the cities (Constance–Berlin or Berlin–Constance) is included in the course fee. Language Levels In Berlin, we offer German courses for language levels A1 to C2 according to the Common European Framework of References for Languages. Class Size Our classes consist of approx. 10 students. Such a small size ensures that individual attention is given to every single course participant. As we focus very much on the communicative approach of the language, while not neglecting grammar, we give heed to make every student talk and participate. Tests All course participants take a weekly exam which covers all the course content taught the preceding week so that students and teachers alike can assess the progress made in the German language. Homework Our students are also expected to do some homework every day, yet they will still have plenty of time for extracurricular activities.
