Tired of speaking silly German?
At the heart of speakeasy is the firm belief that learning a language works best when you feel at ease. This is why you won’t find any dull, bleak classrooms at our school, but rather a cosy atmosphere with individually decorated classrooms. Our belief also presents itself in your course, because here, you are the centre of our attention! Our language courses incorporate the interests of our participants and respond to you as an individual. You are very welcome to actively shape your course!
Our experienced teachers are looking forward to meeting you in one of our beginner or advanced language courses. They are experts in explaining the rules of the German language to adults through various interactive exercises and lots of practical examples. That’s how you learn German for the real world!
As well as an established course book, we also work with our own speakeasy material in class. This way, we can tailor our courses even better to our participants’ interests and you can be sure that your course will stay rich in variety. Many group and partner activities and creative approaches to teaching put us ahead of traditional educational institutions – at speakeasy, communication is key! Not only will you learn theory, but more importantly how to apply your language skills in practice. We bring this belief to life in our courses with physical attendance as well as in our online courses. No matter which format you decide to take, you can be sure that your course will be taught in line with our speakeasy method!
Talking to our friendly Student Service team is an easy way to practise your German. They will be happy to help you with all administrative matters: with finding the correct level for you, with registering for your course or your exam and of course with questions regarding accommodation, speakeasy events and our online community. But don’t worry, all speakeasy team members also speak English. Many of them even bring another language to the table – check here if your first language is among them! You are welcome to contact us per email or to come visit us at the office.
Thanks to our central location on Lilienstraße, it is very easy to reach us. Hamburg Central Station is only a few minutes’ walk away so finding your way to us from the city and surrounding area is straightforward.
As a modern language school, it goes without saying that our classrooms are not only decorated in a cosy manner but are also technically well equipped. This way you can immerse yourself in your German learning in a relaxed, feel-good atmosphere.
Located in the centre of the city and close to the Alster, speakeasy’s neighbourhood can be easily explored. We will happily assist you with this: With our regular speakeasy events, you not only get to know our favourite spots in Hamburg, but you also have the chance to meet many other speakeasy participants!
In addition to our motto of learning a foreign language in a modern and pleasing environment, speakeasy holds another core belief: diversity and tolerance are important to us and always considered at our school. This is why we value and practise a respectful way of communicating with each other – in our school, in our courses, in our online community and at our events.
