Location


Accommodation

  • APARTMENTS @ GLS CAMPUS BERLIN
    The 50 studio-apartments are in 2 buildings facing the garden just behind the language school: With sizes varying between 23 und 38 m², every studio has its own unique style. There are 2 categories: standard (Hotel 1) and superior (Hotel 2). All standard studios are mini-lofts, i.e. the sleeping area is on a higher level - the ceilings are 4.80 m high.
    All studios are fully equipped mini-appartments and students can book single, double or shared double:
    kitchen, own WC and shower (bathtub in superior studios), free WLAN for laptop, telephone and TV, linen & towels

    APARTMENTS @ BRANDENBURGER TOR
    GLS operates 20 apartments @ Brandenburg Gate, each apartment with 2 or 3 bedrooms - bookable as single or shared double. Thus 2 to 5 GLS students live together in one apartment, sharing bath and kitchen.

    FLAT SHARE WITH BERLINERS
    Students share an apartment with Berliners: ideal if they´d like to train their German. There will always be one or more German people in the apartment - they can be students, taxi drivers or artists, of all ages and all social strata. More often than not (but not always) students will be the only international roommate in the flat.

    HOST FAMILY IN BERLIN
    Basically "host family" means that somebody will be there for students and serve breakfast as well as dinner. It does not necessarily mean, that students will be staying with a traditional family: The hosts can be couples (married or not) as well as singles, with or without kids. Relevant is that they are friendly and open, that they are willing to spend time with students. All hosts have been inspected, and many have been hosting our students for several years.

Surrounding Area

  • The GLS German Language School is located in the historic center of Berlin, in trendy "Prenzlauer Berg": Around 1900 this district used to be a poor peoples´ habitat. After WW II Prenzlauer Berg ended up in the communist part of Berlin - with many intellectuals and artists living here. After the fall of the wall the district boomed and became the trend district in Berlin. Some of the main Berlin highlights are within walking distance from GLS: Museumsinsel: 1.5 km, Hackescher Markt: 1 km, Jüdisches Museum: 1.5 km, Reichstag: 2 km, Brandenburg Gate: 2.5 km

Facilities

  • 9,000 m2 campus, 40 classrooms between 30 and 63m2. IT room with 15 PC and fress access to internet, free WiFi everywhere on campus, bookstore, student library, landscaped garden, cafeteria with garden terrace, restaurant with sun terrace, 50 studio-apartments

Activity

想知道關於住宿問題??
Q: 明年寒假的時候打算申請去GLS 語言學校念語言課程,想請問宿舍提供哪些類型的宿舍呢?? 是否為一人一間的形式?? 還是兩個人一間的形式呢?? 可否有照片先看一下大概的環境?? A: 您好,感謝您來訊息詢問,關於GLS 語言學校住宿問題為您做個解答。 勃蘭登堡門公寓 GLS在勃蘭登堡門運營的20個公寓,每間公寓有2或3間臥室 - 預訂單人房或雙人房共享。因此,2至5位 GLS學生一起住在一間公寓,共用浴室和廚房。 柏林床和房間分享 學生和柏林人共用一個公寓,如果學生想提升他們的德文。總會有一個或更多的德國人在公寓裡 - 他們可能是學生所有年齡和所有社會階層,出租車司機或藝術家。但更多可能是單身或結婚學生將是在這裡唯一的國際室友。 寄宿家庭在柏林 基本上是“寄宿家庭”指的是,有人為學生和提供早餐和晚餐。這並不一定指學生將住在傳統的家庭:該主人可以是夫妻結婚或否,以及單身,或沒有孩子。但他們是友好和開放,他們願意和學生共享時間。所有寄宿家庭都被審查,許多人甚至已經提供寄宿家庭好幾年。

こちらの学校で3ヶ月間短期留学をしました。

立地がとても良くて、周りにはたくさんのカフェやレストラン、ユニークなお店等があります。
授業の後にはクラスメートたちと一緒に宿題をやったり、ご飯を食べに行ったりして楽しく過ごせました。
毎週クラスが変わり、先生も変わるので戸惑うこともありましたが、クラス変更が可能なので合わない時は変えてもらう事もありました。
カリキュラムはとてもしっかりしていて、授業についていくのに必死でしたが、
その分基礎的な部分をしっかり身につけることが出来たので良かったです。
宿泊は学校のキャンパス内にある寮を利用しました。
とても綺麗で、設備も整っていて満足しました。
短い期間でしたが留学して本当に良かったと思っています。

高家哲

剛來德國的前半年,我讀了很多新聞雜誌週刊。和臺灣的媒體相比就是 政治、經濟、社會、國際議題理性討論的文章幾乎要佔去全部的篇幅,文化娛 樂體育新聞反而佔少數。這點也同樣反映在電視節目和收音機廣播上,甚至還 可以看到對哲學專業議題的深入討論,相較之下哲學在臺灣是完全被忽視的。 此外他們對每一個公共議題的討論都會追蹤很久,甚至還會整理過去幾年不同 黨派對這個議題的看法,和臺灣集體健忘的情況有很大的反差。不過硬要說的 話,其實德國人也有一些根深柢固的意識形態,例如對於環保的強調。


遠的不說,連大學裡參選學生會長時大部分的候選人都會強調他們的環保政策,甚至 到了調漲學生餐廳費用在所不惜的地步。但是在超市裡頭蔬果肉類的購買仍然 使用過量的塑膠袋,所以這其中有沒有矛盾有時也很難說。 人民的素養則是最難觀察的地方,因為柏林畢竟是一個國際城市,充滿 了許多外國人,有時也不能依此判斷全德國人的紀律與公德心如何。


至於國際化與否則是完全顛覆我們的想像,德國其實是一個相當本土化 的國家。走在大街上基本上是完全看不到英文的,就連電影院的好萊屋電影也 都是德文配音的。人們當然愛講德文勝過講英文,如果你用德文交談的話,通 常能夠獲得更多實用的資訊,不然可能會被當成觀光客敷衍。在書店也是,幾 乎所有的書籍都是德文書,英文是理所當然的外文,所以也有補習進修英文的 書籍。所以不要再以為會英文就能走遍天下,當地的語言還是要學習,不然只 怕吃了悶虧還不自知。
