Conversation-based and with exactly the right mix of theory and practise – this is how you learn German for the real world!
Our small groups average 8 to 10 students (min 4; max -depending on classroom- 12 or 14) so you’ll have lots of one-on-one time with your teacher.
Missed a class or didn’t understand a topic? No problem! We offer online tutoring sessions with a real teacher for free to current students.
Events, an online community, and regular outings to local bars & museums make finding friends and language practice partners easy!
Attend regular free-of-charge workshops to help refine your German grammar or aid you in settling into life in Germany. Find out more here.
Online and available 24/7 – in our library, you can find information on your course, homework, and additional material!
From Monday the 7th of June, Physical Courses can take place here in the school.
To participate in a physical course you either need a proof of a negative SARS-CoV-2 test (2 times a week), have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days, or have recovered from corona in the past 6-months.
The 3G rule (requirement of proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test) applies for participation in our German courses with physical attendance.
For physical attendance classes, please bring along a face mask (simple medical mask or FFP2). Participants must also wear a medical mask or FFP2 mask in the classroom. The obligation to wear a mask does not apply if the participants stay at their assigned fixed seats and the required minimum distance is ensured. In addition to this, in our classrooms we have adjusted the seating order in a way that guarantees the minimum distance of 1,50m on every side. The number of participants in the class depends on the classroom and varies between min. 4 and max. 14 persons. Please follow our hygiene concept during your stay at speakeasy.
We implemented the following new measures in the school:
We continue to offer online courses which you can also sign up for online. The online courses take place in a virtual classroom. You will receive your log in details per email after your registration. Our online courses are available in different course formats: The Online Intensive course takes place on four days per week; the online evening course gives you two nights of lessons per week. True to our speakeasy motto, our online courses are just as interactive and focused on communication as our courses with physical attendance.
Here at speakeasy German language school Berlin we have always been proud to do things a little differently. We believe, above all, that learning should be a pleasant and relaxed experience. With this in mind, we created what we think is the perfect place for practical learning.
At speakeasy we are proud to put our students’ needs first and to deliver a stress-free personalized service in language training for all levels and purposes.
speakeasy offers conversation-based courses for German, English, Spanish & Italian from beginner to advanced level (A1 to C2).
When it comes to German courses, we offer the full range of morning, afternoon and evening classes. Learn at your own pace by choosing an intensive course, an evening course or a super-intensive course that combines both day and evening elements.
Or why don't you give another language a "go" and join one of our English evening courses? We also provide one-to-one tuition, which is fully flexible and can be arranged to suit your specific needs (and your schedule!)
If you are after an official qualification for university admission or job purposes, you can take a TELC examination with us at the speakeasy language school in Berlin, recognized worldwide. speakeasy also provides in-house corporate training in both English and German, which can be designed according to your business needs - while staying true to the speakeasy teaching spirit (click here for more)

At speakeasy Berlin we put your individual needs at the centre of what we do:
Located in the buzzing cultural heart of the capital, Friedrichshain, German language school speakeasy Berlin provides the perfect atmosphere for our teaching method. Forget boring classrooms, at speakeasy our rooms have as much character as our students, with artworks from local artists (several of which are students!) and comfortable vintage furniture from Berlin.
To help you get to know the city and its people, we offer special programmes and events. If you’re learning German, how about joining our regular "Stammtisch" events and practice your German while enjoying a cold beer with your fellow students and speakeasy's tutors? And what would the coolest school in Berlin has to offer be, without its own conversation classes - free of grammar and other formal restrictions? And of course don't miss out on our regular ‘vernissage’ events, featuring artists and performers from Berlin.
Our team of worldly, experienced native language trainers embody the speakeasy spirit and are here to help you achieve your goals, whether you’re a beginner or advanced, whether you need general practice or you are training for a specific exam.
The teachers pride themselves in bringing their classes to life with passion and enthusiasm.

Our trainers use up to date methods to ensure everyone gets the most experience of the language possible – and of course has fun with it!
For German Language Learning, Berlin is a fantastic place to do so and at speakeasy we will help you make the most of your time here, with practical training for the real world.
The city Berlin has always been rather ‘different’. With undoubtedly one of the most unusual histories of any city in the world, today it continues to be proudly different in many ways. You see it when you walk down the street, in the shops, the buzzing cultural sphere and the dynamic business scene.
Like Berlin, speakeasy has always prided itself on being different. It was, after all, founded on a different approach to language training. The idea was to do away with old-fashioned didactic teaching methods and offer practical training for the real world. It was also about doing away with the dull environments often equated with schools. Effective language training is about getting the most from each individual student – accordingly the atmosphere should be warm and open.
If you want to learn German, Berlin offers many options, but few schools offer the interactive experience of learning you will find at speakeasy in our small group classes where, above all, learning is fun and exciting.
Inside and outside the classroom your needs as the student matter greatly to us. So we’re all about providing training and other services that will really help you and making it all as easy as possible!
At speakeasy we help students achieve their goals from beginner to advanced level, with classes structured as per the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for languages). You will always know what level you’re at based on this system, recognized worldwide, and attendance certificates can be provided for classes at all levels (for a small fee of 5€).
If you do need an official qualification certifying your language level we offer telc examinations - recognized in the academic world and by employers all over the world. These take place at the end of each course month and classes at every level prepare you naturally for the corresponding examination.
With our choice of different German courses, you can decide how quickly you want to learn German.
If you can focus a few hours every day on classes, choose from an intensive or super-intensive course (the latter is also suitable for getting a language course visa or study preparation visa). With these courses, you’ll complete a sub-level (e.g. A1.1, A1.2) every month (4 weeks). Classes are at either 9.00, 12.00 or 15.00 Mondays to Thursdays. With the Super-Intensive you’ll also take a class on Fridays at 10.00.
If you prefer to take things more slowly, or need to schedule classes around a busy day-time schedule, you can learn German in Berlin with one of our Evening Courses. You’ll finish each language sub-level every 2 months this way. Choose from times at either 18.00 or 19.45 with 90 minute sessions twice a week.
Don’t forget, if you want complete flexibility in terms of planning your classes, we also offer Private Lessons. These allow you to schedule your classes at times that suit you and of course the lessons are entirely tailored to your specific needs.
The speakeasy experience extends beyond our comfortable classrooms. Don’t forget you can also join a variety of free events, such as our ‘Stammtisch’ where you can practice German over a drink with your fellow students and teachers, film screenings where you’ll see the best of German cinema and our Vernissage events, where we showcase the best of local talent in art and music. After all, experiencing Berlin is about immersing in more than just the language!
If you need additional help before coming to learn German in Berlin – don’t forget we offer health insurance, visa support, accommodation as well as online training. Just let us know how we can help – that’s what we’re here for!
Fed up of just ‘getting by’ with basic language skills? Or maybe you need to take a German course to help with your work or studies? Above all, it doesn’t need to be a chore!
