Feedback from Students

„ The online lessons at the Humboldt-Institut were really great, although I didn’t expect it. What I particularly liked were the breakout rooms in which it is very easy to work together with the other students.

„ The Saturday course is ideal for those who work during the week and have little time. The lessons help me a lot to develop my German. The teachers are nice and lessons are very motivating.
