German classes on a Pay-what-you-want-basis
Posted June 30th, 2013 - 2:01 pm by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
Hey guys,

for those of you who want to learn german in a non institutional way I can recommend you a cool German project that offers OPEN german classes every week on a pay-what-you-want-basis, so it's available for everyone...no matter if you have a lot of money or not. you can choose how much you pay after the class. the idea is that the classes are especially made for the students, do not follow any particular book and are open to everyone. the classes are designed after the students wishes.
The cool thing that the classes are hold in a bar. So what's better than learning German while drinking a beer or a coffee.
The place is called Zatopek and it's in Neukölln (Niemetzstr. 24, near S-Bahnhof Sonnenallee). There are offered classes at three days a week (mon, tue, wed) for different levels. (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert and Conversation Classes)
You can find the project on facebook:

or write an email:

You can also ask me if you have more questions.

Check it out and have fun!

Monday beginner class at 5.30 pm
Monday advanced class at 7 pm
Tuesday intermediate class at 5.30 pm
Tuesday conversation class at 7 pm
Wednesday expert class at 7 pm

One more time the project "Deutsch für Dich" is starting a new term, especially for the people who have never been there before.
There are five different levels and it's still avaible for everybody independent of the financial situation, cause everybody can choose if he gives a little donation afterwards or not.
The next round starts on the 13th of January, for more questions contact the project on facebook

or write an email

or just come to the place where the classes are held:

Here are some detaials about the classes and times:

Monday 7 p.m. - Expert Class:

For those who don't have any knowledge "Deutsch für Dich" and want to start from Zero.

Tuesday 7 p.m. - Conversation Class:
For those who feel like speaking, discussing and practicing articulateness.

Wednesday 5.30 p.m. - Intermediate Class
For those who have some basic knowledge already, but want to go a bit deeper into grammer (learn how to deal with the cases, past tense, prepositions etc.) and have some easy speaking exercises for everyday life situations.
