Learn German over biscuits and a cup of tea. Exchange ideas with other students and talk about topics that you are really interested in.

At TRANSMITTER, you will learn the German language through targeted language training and apply it in real-life situations.

Communicative and Effective

Our language courses are interactive and a lot of fun.

It is very important to us to give you the opportunity to develop your speaking skills with us. That’s why our classes are designed to focus on spoken language.

In class, we work with standard textbooks as well as with special listening exercises, videos and role-plays. The combination of different teaching techniques will help you get to know the German language from different perspectives and understand its specific features and structures in a natural way. Our lessons are characterized by a very playful yet focused approach, which will make it easier for you to immerse into the language. 


Of course, all of our teachers are highly qualified native speakers with a special degree in teaching German as a foreign language. Read more about our teachers here So, naturally, our German courses are held entirely in German to ensure a maximum exposure to the language.

All of our courses are based on the standards of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and prepare our students for independent language tests such as TELC, Test DaF, etc. This means that our courses impart all skills that should be acquired for the different levels of language proficiency – from listening comprehension to grammar and speaking.


If you would like to find out more about our German courses or take a free trial lesson, please send us an e-mail to: hello@transmitter-berlin.de. Of course, you can also just drop by and talk to us in person. We will be happy to arrange an appointment with you by e-mail.

What our students say about us:

”I have done three courses with Transmitter and I couldn’t be happier. The combination of classes with a lot of group conversations (and fun games), create the right atmosphere to learn German in enjoyable and interesting way. Their teachers are friendly and always happy to help. I recommend this school to all my friends. - Bianca A. (2023)”

”Truly the best language school, with smart and caring instructors. I've taken a diverse array of classes: online and in-person, beginner and middle-advanced, with five different teachers. With TRANSMITTER I'm always excited to go to school. I am so thankful to them for helping me improve my German. Will always enthusiastically recommend. - Dana M. (2023)”

”I took a 4 weeks intensive German class with Transmitter and loved it! My fellow classmates were really nice and eager to learn, Vu our teacher is great, very patient and friendly. The class really helped me improve my skills and feel more confident in speaking so I decided to extend for another 4 weeks. I’d highly recommend this school as the price and quality are really good! - Anais C. (2023)”

”Best language school in town. Katja is a great teacher and will help you with any question you may have. The school atmosphere is very nice, lots of great encounters there. I 100% recommend :) - Penélope de M. (2023)”

”This is a great and welcoming place to study! Small classes allow a more personalized experience and the teachers are so kind and invested. This school was recommended by an expat friend of mine who recently moved to Berlin and I will continue to pass along the recommendation! I plan to take as many courses as I can here, they're wonderful. - Taylor U. (2023)”

”A really lovey place to learn German. The teachers are truly amazing, the classes are super nice, cosy and modern. I have made lots of new friends along the way too which is amazing. I’ve recommended this place to so many people, it’s such a wonderful school and I’m so happy to be part of the class. Learning German has always been absolutely awful for me, (...) until I joined this school. I look forward to the class every morning. Thank you so much! 🙏🏼🥹 - Sorcha H. (2023)”

”Absolutely the best course in Berlin. I’ve tried some before, but they are all extremely boring, only following the book and not really interested in trying anything new to help with the learning process. Transmitter cares about making thorough reviews of the content, every class there’s a bit of a review of what we have learned. This is extremely important to help fixating the content. Besides, it’s always very dynamic and you don’t get tired of the subject. There are games and activities developed specially for every content. Another great thing is that every teacher there is incredibly good. - Manoela (2023)”

”I have done two courses at Transmitter now and I have always found the teachers to be encouraging and enthusiastic and thorough. You will also meet some great people when you attend a class at Transmitter. I can't recommend this school highly enough! - Alan M. (2023) ”
