At €222 for a four-week course (within the Friends-Tariff), Kapitel Zwei Berlin is one of the best value language schools in Berlin. Usually, this sort of price would mean large class sizes and overworked teachers, but at Kapitel Zwei Berlin, class sizes are capped at 12 with an average of around 8 participants in each course. Teachers are engaging and dedicated, and significant emphasis is placed on communication. That is not to say that you won't have to learn any grammar, but grammar exercises are usually tied to a real-world activity that you get to practice in small groups or pairs during class.
Due to the Corona pandemic, Kapitel Zwei now offers all German courses, both offline, in the real classroom and online, in the virtual classroom.
All course levels are available, from absolute beginners (A1) to advanced (C2). They also run exam preparation courses including telc Deutsch preparation courses B1, B2, C1 Hochschule and B2/C1 Medizin as well as Test DaF. In addition, Kapitel Zwei Berlin also offers Conversation, Grammar and Pronunciation classes.
Kapitel Zwei Berlin runs four sessions per day, a bonus if you happen to be working in Berlin and want to study in the evening. The intensive courses in the real classroom run Monday to Thursday from 9am -12pm, 12pm-3pm, 3pm to 6pm and 6pm-9pm; in the virtual classroom Monday to Thursday from 9am -11pm, 12pm-2pm, 3pm to 5pm and 6pm-8pm.
Grammar, conversation, and pronunciation courses are run twice weekly: one session per week costs 82€ for four weeks, or book two sessions for only 142€ (save 22€), plus 20 EUR on top if you choose online classes.
Kapitel Zwei Berlin is a certified examination centre for the internationally recognised telc Deutsch and TestDaF and was awarded the distinction 'Exemplary - Best Practice' for exam organisation and preparation. The telc Deutsch B1, B2 and C1 Hochschule exam, testing general knowledge of German at an advanced level, covers reading, vocabulary and grammar as well as listening and writing and is held every month. In the meantime, Kapitel Zwei also offers the telc Deutsch Medizin B2/C1 exam for doctors and the TestDaF exam.
Kapitel Zwei Berlin offers accommodation either in a student residence close to Alexanderplatz or with guest families.
A cultural program is also on offer, with a couple of different activities every month including a regular Stammtisch (Pub night), along with museum visits, city tours, festivals and more.
The Language School Kapitel Zwei is located close to the beautiful river Spree between the subways stations Heinrich-Heine-Straße (U8) and Märkisches Museum (U2) and only a few minutes away from the transport hub of Alexanderplatz. It is just a short walk from the transport hub of Alexanderplatz which can be reached by many different modes of transport including bus, train, subway, and tram!
Class sizes are small and fill up quickly, so it pays to book in advance, especially in February and November. To request a spot visit Kapitel Zwei Berlin's website.
