speakeasy sprachzeug – the place for languages on Boxhagener Strasse.



From the start, speakeasy sprachzeug has held the belief that learning languages can be fun. That it can be exciting. And that you can and do learn better in a pleasant, welcoming atmosphere than in the oft drab settings typically associated with learning establishments. They say if you pursue a dream with passion, you will be successful: and thus speakeasy sprachzeug was born.

The founders of speakeasy sprachzeug had a clear vision of what they wanted: The new language school should be different to all other language schools. They developed a concept that would place the interests and peculiarities of the pupils at the centre of everything. To understand the lives of the pupils and how they live is instrumental to understand how to teach them. Only then can we introduce vocabulary, grammar, etc. It's a question of perspective, that is quite different to the norm. That's the speakeasy spirit.

Is this just some kind of crazy idea? Maybe. So what?

The centrepiece of speakeasy sprachzeug is the German classes in the morning, afternoon and evening. Here, those that are young and young at heart can learn the basics according to each level or can delve into the finer points of the language. Also, hurdles that you thought were too great to overcome can be tackled with the right amount of fun and openness to make them seemingly easier.

At speakeasy sprachzeug you can also learn Spanish, French, Portuguese and even Chinese. Finally, if you have an unusual or unconventional request, we're all ears! You've come to the right place!
