Intensive Summer School 2018/2019

Intensive classes are the perfect way to learn a language. Longer class hours will help you to retain structures and vocabulary much better. We will need less time for revision and have more time for speaking and fun. Comedy, video clips, songs and cartoons will be part of the teaching.

Testimonials

Learn German at the German Language Centre! After starting my German language studies in Germany, I was pleased to begin classes again at the East Melbourne Language Centre, with its highly experienced and effective teachers, and its fun classes.
My teacher, Katharina, is brilliant in how she explains the complicated German language, and this is greatly helped by her deep knowledge of English as well as several other languages. Classes are very thought-provoking, and offer me an ideal level of challenge, and a supportive environment in which I can improve my language skills. In class, we don’t just learn just language, but we very much engage with German culture and history through media including film, TV and print.
I am grateful for the experiences I have had at the East Melbourne Language Centre, and very much recommend the school to others.

It has just been about three weeks, when our new German volunteers Stephanie and Ann-Sophie left their home in Germany to work at the East Melbourne & German Language Centre for one year. Nevertheless, it seems as if they have already settled in.

Why are you learning German?

I started learning German because my boyfriend’s family are from Germany and he speaks German at home. Naturally, I wanted to have some sort of understanding of what’s going on and to be able to understand the culture that is such a big part of his life, so I decided I’d take up German classes! While I now already know the basics of German and have an insight into the culture, I’ve continued learning the language because I find it genuinely enjoyable and challenging.

Why would you start learning a new language and how would you decide which new language that would be? These are two questions I asked one of our new students who very enthusiastically came into the East Melbourne Language Centre as a student for the first time. Susan had decided that she wanted to start learning French! We are always interested in everyone’s motivations for learning a new language and why in particular they chose the language they did. So, I asked her why she chose French, especially having straight away confessed, nervously, to knowing no words in French aside …

“Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow” The snow is falling, there is a fire in the fireplace which warms the house, the family is sitting on the couch, drinking hot chocolate and decorating the Christmas tree.  That’s Christmas for me. With minus 5 degrees and a real Christmas tree, that was chop off in the forest. But that must seem odd for most of the Australians. As odd as it is for me to celebrate Christmas with 36 degrees. So, I guess, it’s not that big of a surprise that I almost forgot about Christmas. But no …

What is the easiest language to learn for an English speakers? Many students want to enrol into a language course in Melbourne but can’t decide which language to learn. I have been asked many times “What is the easiest language to learn for an English speaker?” and expect to get one clear answer to this question. They hope to get an answer such as Spanish, French or German is the easiest language to learn. But I had to disappoint them as it depends on lots of different factors. So instead of giving you one answer to this question, I want …
