To our knowledge base
The quickest way to learn at speakeasy is with the Super-intensive German course, with 3 hours per day of classes Monday to Friday.
The Super-intensive German Courses at speakeasy offer students the most lessons per week and so are perfect for those who want to learn as quickly as possible. Our Super-Intensive German Courses consist of 18 teaching units per week – in real terms, just under 3 hours of classes every week day, including a short break of course!
The Super-intensive German Course combines the Intensive ourse (Monday to Thursday) with our special Friday conversation class – so you’ll also have extra practice in speaking like a true German!
With the Super-intensive German Course you will complete each of the first language levels (A1, A2 or B1) in 2 months. The longer B2 level is completed in 3 months and the advanced level C1 in 4 months.
The Super-intensive German Courses at speakeasy are especially popular as they are suitable for obtaining a visa based on a language course. In other words, the courses fulfil the visa requirement of 18 teaching units per week.
Students coming to Berlin for up to 3 months can come on a tourist (Schengen) visa. For those wanting to stay and study German longer, it is possible to use a Super-intensive German Course as the basis on which to apply for a longer-term language-learning visa or residence permit. So, whether you intend to prepare for university with the Study Preparation visa or you simply want to stay longer-term in Germany for your Super-Intensive German course and so are applying for a Language Course Visa, you have come to the right place.
When you sign up for your Super-intensive German course, we will provide you with the official enrolment document you need to submit with your visa application (a 50 € fee applies for this). We are also on hand to provide free advice to help you with your visa application. What’s more, at speakeasy we can help you with a range of other visa-related services - if you need a place to stay for your visa during your course, you can check out the accommodation options at our very own speakeasy apartments, we can set you up with health insurance and we can even help you with the motivation letter you will need to submit as part of your visa application.
