At Sprachcaffe Frankfurt, you can start your language course in German, English, French, Spanish and Italian at any time. In addition to this selection, we offer you the option of booking individual lessons in almost any other language. You can also learn Portuguese, Greek, Turkish or Swedish with us. However, we require a small lead time of about 2 weeks to organise your lessons in languages outside our normal offer.
The name Sprachcaffe is a combination of the German word Sprache and the Italian word caffe. A Sprachcaffe is characterised by relaxed learning of a language over a cup of coffee. At a Sprachcaffe you meet like-minded people and learn a foreign language in a relaxed atmosphere. This is exactly the philosophy on which our language courses are based. Our language courses are designed to help you learn languages in a relaxed atmosphere and make international friends in the process.
Depending on the course type, you have more or less influence on the course outcome. With private lessons, you have full control. This means that your teacher can focus entirely on you and your individual priorities. When learning in a group, in an evening course or in an intensive course, your teacher draws on the prior knowledge of the entire group. On the first day of the course, the topics are determined and dynamically adapted to the progress of the course. In consultation with your teacher, specific exercises to prepare for language certificates can also be integrated into the course.
You can also have your language course recognised as educational leave without any problems. You can find out what you need to consider when applying for educational leave and which steps you need to follow on the page on educational leave.
Our business language courses mainly deal with topics from business life. Among other things, you will learn topic-specific vocabulary, practise giving professional presentations or learn how to make professional phone calls and write emails. Based on these specific business topics, you will also practise important grammar rules, pronunciation, listening comprehension and text comprehension.
At our Sprachcaffe language school in Frankfurt, there is a suitable course for every language level. You can learn languages with us both as a beginner with no previous knowledge and as an advanced student at C1 level. Our placement tests at the beginning of the language courses ensure that each of our language students finds the right place and is neither under- nor overchallenged.
In principle, the language course can start as early as one week after registration. However, for private lessons in languages outside our typical programme, we require a small lead time of about two weeks.
If you do not live in Frankfurt and would like to experience your language course in Frankfurt as a language study trip, you have the option of booking accommodation in addition to your language course. You can either stay directly in the school building, in one of our comfortable flats, with a host family or in a nearby hotel or youth hostel.
A long-term course that extends over six months or even a whole year can be paused upon request. You can request a leave of absence for your long-term course by announcing it in advance. Your long-term course will then be paused for the duration of your leave. After your leave of absence, you can resume your language course without any problems. The same applies to a longer period of absence due to illness.
