31 May 2020 – 7 June 2020
Learn German without lessons! Train your speaking muscles and grow your conversational strength!
In the Esperanto-Stacio (Esperanto-Station) in Halbe (Berlin), you’ll have the opportunity to spend a week of intensive German conversation practice with lively activities and games in a friendly atmosphere.
You learned the basics of the German language but you struggle with conversation?
You want to spend time with fellow motivated learners?
Maybe you live in Berlin but hardly ever have the chance to practice your German speaking skills?
Forget about boring grammar lessons and sleepy students memorizing articles!
At our German Bootcamp you’ll be interacting with each other all the time and you’ll be encouraged to talk about a variety of topics – from morning to evening – for a whole week!
During the German Bootcamp there will be no formal lessons but you will be guided by German teachers and native speakers who will facilitate your interactions and answer your questions.
We believe that language learning should be built around topics that are relevant to you. When you sign up for the German Bootcamp, you will be required to answer some questions about your topics of interest, so that we can structure our week together around themes and issues that really matter to you.
No topic will be off limits! Art, environment, food, partying, politics, dating, travel, social problems, sports, family life, work, music, recycling, business, animals, Eurovision, and whatever else you’re interested in!
Spend a week at our German Bootcamp! Immerse yourself in the German language, boost your speaking skills and find new friends!
Note: the Bootcamp is intended for people who speak German at least at a level A2/B1, up to C1/C2. It’s not recommended for absolute beginners.
