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

    Brian
  • 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

    Leon
  • 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

    Julie
  • 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.

    Margaret
  • 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!!
