Mental Health and Wellbeing- during these times we live in currently, mental health is a priority and here at GermanMind we see the positive side effects our classes have on our students and their health and wellbeing. Our classes are fun, interactive and always plenty of chat and laughter. Our class sizes are small with just 8 students maximum, where all students become friends and supporters to each other, which is a great feeling, especially during lockdown. Learning something new has also been linked to improving mental health, and our 6 week courses are the perfect remedy to de-stress, make new friends, learn a new language and most importantly have fun and feel good. Learning a language also improves memory function, and overall brain health, who knew German could be that beneficial?
Culture and Confidence- at GermanMind we not only teach you the German language, we also teach you about Germany and its culture. Learning a new culture is as exciting and transformative as a language, and this new found knowledge will transform how you travel in Germany, how you mix with the locals, apply for jobs with a German company, make German friends and so on. As Germans we respect people who value our traditions, our way of doing things, and a willingness to learn about them.
Your confidence in the language will soar in class as our native German teachers work closely with you to achieve your goals, and increase your language skills every week. Every class you will read, write, listen and speak, and before long it will be second nature to you.
