Methods for language learning

Only the combination of theory and practice guarantees a successful language study programme. At Alpadia Berlin, grammar and conversation are combined with one another in a communicative and lively course atmosphere.

We mix our own level-based lesson material with standard course books to build on what you already know, freshen up what you've forgotten, and quickly cover new ground. Pronunciation and orthography are also completely covered. Courses are given exclusively in the target language.

For you, the best among the rest

The quality of a language course is determined by the competency and approach of the instructor. At PROLOG, we work exclusively with native speakers who are qualified teachers in addition to many years of teaching experience in adult education.

Communication instead of frustration

At Alpadia Berlin, we don't separate grammar tuition from conversation practice. Grammar is always taught in connection with useful examples. Instead of boring rote learning, we make sure that new grammar concepts are taught and practiced in authentic, communicative situations. Expanding your vocabulary, oral communication, and learning strategies are also on the menu. From the beginning, our teaching programme is augmented with specific pronunciation practice.

Teacher The four foundation stones of all our courses are: listening comprehension, writing, reading, and speaking. Group discussions, role play, and conversation in the classroom all help to improve your oral communication, vocabulary, and sentence structure.

Grammar is not taught in isolation; it is packaged in informative and stirring texts, which also convey important cultural, political, and historical information. A few examples of the topics covered are: relationships, social life, jobs and work, history, and cultural identity.

Our method for teaching foreign languages is direct. We apply a communicative approach, which means that even beginners will be practicing grammar, dialogues, exercises, reading, watching videos, and using visual aids to promote communication from day one. We consciously create a relaxed, entertaining, and communicative atmosphere in order to enable students to speak a foreign language without inhibition.
