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!

  • 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!!

  • 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.
