What our students say about GLC

  • GLC is a name in Dublin when it comes to German courses taught by native speakers. My personal recommendation!

    Jörg A.
  • Great German language school in Dublin! Tim makes every class interesting and engagin serving a good mix of interaction, fun and grammar. Since I signed up I feel more confident as I improved my ability to speak and started to think through German phrases! Homework motivates to commit more time than just in person, classes delivered from a convenient South Dublin location. Highly recommended!

    Artur B.
  • Tim was a great teacher and so patient. I had one-to-one lessons to improve my conversational German and I made great progress!

  • I have attended GLC now for a number of years and enjoy it very much. Tim and his staff are very personable and make the class learning a very enjoyable and useful experience.

  • GLC and Tim are superb.

  • If I could, I'd give 10 and more stars to GLC. Tim and his team are excellent teachers. Top!

    Sara W.
  • I was very fortunate to find German Language Centre in Dublin back in 2016. It gave me a great confidence for my next journey which was to be in Switzerland. I must add also that the help received was based also on my specific needs, which is opera texts and flexible material for my level and capacity. Friendly environment and support have definitely been very important in learning a new language!

    Dana (classical opera singer)
  • Our class is very enjoyable and a relaxing way to learn German. No pressure on the students.

    Niall & Paula
  • I loved my classes at GLC so much so that I want to continue them!  They were always fun, informative and an overall great learning experience that was never boring.

  • I am Alex and when I decided that I wanted to start learning German I went straight to GLC. The reasons why I chose them were: the convenience being near my workplace combined with the Timetable that suited me perfectly, the different levels they have which made it perfect for me to start in this language, and, of course, the price. Tim and its team really take care of the people on every level, making sure that you are progressing and, also, is available in case you have any doubt when doing the homework. They provide you with enough material to continue practicing at home, as well as when attending the classes. Definitely, when I decide to go back to my German classes and increase what I have already learned there, I will go to GLC.

  • I studied German in the GLC in Blackrock for a few months. I thoroughly enjoyed my courses there. Lessons were fun! There was an interesting mix of speaking, listening, writing, role-play and reading. All new content was presented in a very interactive way, engaging and developing your German listening, speaking, written and reading skills. Class content is very well structured with each weeks' lesson building onto the next one. New content is very manageable and thoroughly taught in an engaging way. I had no background in German at all. Now I feel I've gained a strong foundation to build upon - happily eves dropping on the Dart to some German conversations, amazed at how much I can understand. Give it a go - You can only succeed!!
