We offer the following courses:

The Standard Course generally takes place from 9:00 to 12:30 from Monday to Friday. The Intensive Course takes place from 9:00 to 12:30, with additional lessons between 13:00 and 14:30. Teaching times may occasionally vary depending on the course location, and classes are sometimes held in the afternoon. The hours of the One-to-One Course are flexible, making it possible to book this course together with another course option.
Standard Course: A dynamic course that gives our students the boost they need to become more confident in their language skills. Our courses place a lot of emphasis on oral fluency, and our teachers use discussions, debates, games, role-playing, as well as relevant and accurate learning material to keep students engaged. Lessons also revise and build on previously learned grammar and expand the students' vocabulary.
Intensive Course: Ideal for students who want to learn the language more intensively. The additional lessons give them the opportunity to focus more deeply on the various aspects and contexts of the language.
One-to-One: Private language lessons are the fastest and most effective way to learn a new language or to improve your current language skills. The lesson format is determined entirely by the needs and wishes of the student.
- Books can be lent out or purchased at the school. Additional costs apply.
- Students take an online placement test at home or they take it on the first day of their course in the school in order for us to assign them to the course level that best fits their current language skills.
We offer the following accommodation options:
- Standard Apartment
- Comfort apartment
- Guest House
All accommodation options are no more than 60 minutes away from school by public transport. Safety is our highest priority when it comes to our accommodation options – all of our options are located in very safe and secure areas, close to shopping facilities. Every option includes cooking appliances, except in the hotel and guest house. In some accommodations, students are required to provide a security deposit for the key.
Homestay does not always mean a traditional married couple with children. Above all we look for someone who is sociable, likes to meet new people and can give a warm welcome to our students. Our host families have time to talk to our students, are patient, understanding, careful, and prepared to provide help with any problem that may arise during a student's stay.

We offer the following options for transfer:

Transfer can be arranged from airports or main train stations. Two students travelling together will receive a discount. Students are collected from the airport or train station by an employee of Sprachcaffe holding a sign of Sprachcaffe or Sprachcaffe Geos. In our US/CAN destinations, the employee may be holding a GEOS sign. To ensure a smooth transfer for the student, please inform us well in advance of the flight times and arrival times at the train station. Additional costs apply and can be seen in the extra prices segment of each destination.
1. Enrolment: Fill in the application form, scan it and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. A deposit of 20% of the total amount is due at the time of registration. With your application, you commit yourself to the services requested and booking conditions. After having received your application and deposit, we will send the confirmation of enrolment and the invoice. The welcome pack with extra information and the address of your accommodation will be sent after you have settled the remaining balance. The invoice must be paid in full four weeks before arrival.
2. Change of booking: Any change (e.g. arrival date, accommodation, etc.) required up to 28 days before departure will incur a fee of 35GBP/50EUR/55USD/70CAD or equivalent (USA in accordance with ACCET and local state regulations). Afterwards we will do our utmost, but cannot guarantee the fulfilment of the request made since extra costs may be incurred. In that case, the rebooking charge may exceed 35GBP/50EUR/55USD/70CAD.
3. Cancellation: In the case of cancellation, we will charge following fees:
|Up to days prior to start date||Worldwide||USA||Canada|
|Up to 15 days prior||10%, max 300€ / £220 / $330. Additional courier fees if required||Non-refundable fees, max $160 - $310 depending on location. (registration, placement & courier fees)||10% max $350 CAD. Additional courier fees if required|

Cancellation insurance is available at 2% of the total amount (minimum 35GBP/50EUR/55USD/70CAD). The insurance fee must be settled at the time of registration and will only apply if you cancel prior to departure due to health reasons (a written confirmation from the relevant doctor is required as proof). In the unlikely event the school is unable to create a group course due to an insufficient number of students of the same level, smaller classes for a reduced number of lessons will be provided instead (standard = 12 lessons / intensive = 18 lessons). Under the rare circumstances of our being forced to cancel, all fees paid for Sprachcaffe Languages PLUS services will be refunded.
4. Visa: In order to provide the letter of acceptance required by the embassy for issuing a visa, 40% of the total amount should be paid together with an additional charge of non-refundable 65GBP/80EUR/$120 or equivalent (in USA and Canada this amount is included in the registration fee); non-refundable shipping fees may apply. In the case of visa refusal, a full refund minus the additional, non-refundable fees can only be made if the student provides the letter of refusal issued by the embassy at least 14 days before departure (evidence of visa refusal is required). After this date we will consider the participation of the student as confirmed and normal cancellation/rebooking charges will apply. In case the visa has not yet been issued 15 days before departure, we strongly recommend postponing the course. In this case, the first rebooking fee will not be charged.
5. Acceptable forms of payment: By bank transfer: The relevant account number will be on the invoice. Please send us a copy of the transfer order. All bank charges will be incurred by you. By credit card: Upon your notification, the appropriate form will be sent. It will need to be completed with the name of the credit card issuer, card number, expiry date and signature. An additional 2% credit card fee will be charged.
6. Insurance: Neither agent, operator, nor the school will be held responsible in any way for any accident, illness, loss of personal effects or change in personal circumstances arising at any time prior to or during the course. We therefore strongly recommend our personal travel insurance (incl. Health, Accident, Liability, Deportation: Basic protection from 1 GBP/1,30EUR/1.80USD/2 CAD per person per day plus a service charge of 10GBP/14EUR/$18).
7. Liability: Parents of minors agree that neither Sprachcaffe Languages PLUS nor the homestay shall be liable for damage or problems caused either negligently or intentionally by their children while participating in trips. Parents and their children who are still minors recognize and accept the laws and the normal code of conduct of the country, which they are visiting.
