About the school

GLS was founded in 1983 by Barbara Jaeschke. In 2006 GLS purchased and renovated a former Berlin High School and moved to its current location in Prenzlauer Berg – one of Berlin´s trendiest districts, full of galleries, bars, clubs and fashion stores. GLS is test centre for TestDaF. The quality of the school is controlled regularly and for many years by EAQUALS – the European Association for Quality languages Service. GLS is also accredited through the IALC Quality Scheme (International Association of Language Centres).

Skilled and very qualified instructors at a good academic level taught us. They were good at activating us in their teaching. It was a small class so everyone had great opportunity to participate verbally.

The teachers skills were great!

I have been to the GLS Language School in Berlin. Right when you enter the door, you get the feeling that they know what they are doing. In the begining they tell you about the rules of the school, hereafter the school takes care of important papers. After the introduction, the school gives you a test to see on what level you are. After the test, they show you your room. After you meet your roommates, you have the funniest vacation ever! We went out sightseeing in Berlin.The school was good at finding activities, that adresses young people, ex. a streetart tour and a trip to see East Side Gallery, hereafter you go to Yaam Bar, which is a beach bar. I could continue to write about my vacation, but I will end this by writing: I cried when I had to say goodbye to my nearest friend on the language school!

Your host family is not necessarily a ”traditional” family. Hosts can be couples or singles with or without kids. They are friendly, open and, above all, willing to share their everyday life with the student they host. Most have been working with GLS for many years. Please note that some of the best host families are also further away, as they live in more residential areas.
