  • Dear all,

    Due to the new Government Covid-19 regulations we are forced to resume our current semester online from Thursday this week.

    We have done this before and know that it worked successfully. We will continue via Skype.

    This procedure is planned for a span of 6 weeks but we will keep everyone updated for any changes.

    We kindly hope that you will work through this with us and really appreciate your support and trust.

    Hopefully we can be back at our premises before the end of this year and start Winter Term in Central Park in January as well.

    We are confident that we will master this new challenge in these challenging times and come out of them again and...together.

    Thank you for your ongoing support. Please contact us in case the online classes should be a problem for you but hopefully not.

    Your GLC Team
  • Dear all,
    We at the GLC hope that you are healthy and well, first of all. As we are moving towards our autumn term and taking enrolments we would like to inform you on the following:

    - while we have been teaching online during the Covid-19 related lockdown we have been back at the GLC in our school for summer term since end of June and keeping all the required distancing, providing masks and hand-gel as well as sanitizing in our classrooms (doors, tables etc.) and toilet facilities.

    - we have kept group class numbers to a minimum of 6 students and will continue to do so with the required distance and ensuring fresh air during classes.

    Please be assured that our policies are in accordance with the HSE and Government recommendations and rules as our students' well-being is our priority.

What our students say about GLC

  • The teachers are very helpful and accommodating. Classes are very enjoyable and the school hosts extra activities such as movie nights and end of term parties

  • 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)
  • Really enjoy the class and have learnt lots in the past 2 years

  • I love the classes at GLC. Apart from great fun, there's a wide variety of things covered in 90 min and plenty to continue with at home

  • 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!!

    Leticia (Central Bank of Ireland)
  • I loved the atmosphere at GLC; the classes were great, as well as the teacher. I couldn`t recommend it more.

  • I have found Tim and all at GLC a great help in my quest to learn German! I started as a Beginner two years ago and steadily making progress- and having fun doing so!!

  • Our son had no background in German, but he has now progressed strongly under Mr. Weimann's tuition.

  • I have progressed from Beginner to Advanced. The credit for this achievement goes to Tim.

  • Greatly benefited from interesting and challenging classes; Tim is an excellent teacher.

  • I really enjoyed my German Language course. Our tutor was excellent at teaching the language and explaining the various grammatical concepts and nuances of vocabulary and at the same time was adept at making learning enjoyable.

  • I've found every single class suitably challenging and at the same time rather enjoyable.

  • I found my German classes run through the Central Bank to be very good. The relaxed atmosphere and the informal mix of grammar, vocabulary, and speaking makes  learning German enjoyable and interesting.


What Parents say about GLC

  • Our two girls look forward to German class each week and the language is acquired in a fun yet structured way.

  • We've turned to GLC for help with our daughter's German classes. She attended teenage classes and was making a good progress. We would recommend GLC for teens.
