>Format D: – What is that?!


For our conversation course in Berlin, >Format D:, we at the deutSCHule in Berlin-Neukölln came up with something truly special. Each German conversation course has a different theme, like the leitmotif of a piano sonata. Every week, we arrange an excursion to a place that illustrates a particular aspect of it. In this way, the theme is gradually made tangible, not only through language, but in a concrete and direct manner.


Even better, you get to prepare for this excursion in class – meaning you will already have acquired the vocabulary you need to deal with this topic in Berlin or elsewhere. And you will know what to expect on the excursion in Berlin so you can get the most out of it. The journeys are also followed up in class. This will broaden and deepen your understanding of the topic in a natural way.

>Format D: – What former participants say

I took the conversation course in Berlin in September. It was super amazing! The topic was very interesting: fanaticism. I made a presentation about Islam. I was nervous, but it was very exciting. The best thing was the excursions. One every week. Really good for learning! I have greatly improved my German.” (Kiril, 24, Russia)

„I did >Format D: at the deutSCHule in February. I was a bit sceptical. Conversation courses are sometimes boring. But I need to speak German for the TestDaF. So I attended the course. And I have to say: >Format D: was super mega great! Not boring, but I learned a lot about Berlin and society. I want to give it 5 stars!” (Emma, 23, United Kingdom)
