Polyglot Workshops Berlin - language-learning tailored to you

    21 & 22 March 2015

    The Polyglot Workshops offer you the chance to interact with well-known polyglots, who have tried and tested methods of learning languages successfully. You get to ask questions that are important to you and have a more personal experience of language coaching and motivation at a fraction of the cost of normal private tuition. On 21st and 22nd March Alex Rawlings, Judith Meyer and Richard Simcott, three seasoned polyglots who between them have studied more than 50 different languages, will be coming together to answer your questions and draw on their experiences with you in an intimate setting of around 20-30 other motivated and enthusiastic language learners at Berlin’s Sprachenatelier. The day will be made up of three interactive and engaging masterclasses with breaks for lunch, mingling and practising your languages with the polyglots and the other participants. Whether you’re just at the start of your lifelong love of languages or perhaps a little further down the line, the Polyglot Workshop will definitely have something for you. If you have any specific questions or concerns you’d like answered, you can tell us directly by completing the attendance questionnaire as part of the sign up form. The Polyglot Workshop is an unmissable opportunity to make the changes you need for success in your languages. We look forward to welcoming you there!

    The venue

    The workshops will take place at Frankfurter Allee 40 (very central, near the metro stations "Samariterstraße" and "Frankfurter Tor") in the rooms of the Sprachenatelier Berlin. Sprachenatelier Berlin offer courses in German and 40 other languages, but are much more than a language school. Here's what they write about themselves: "We founded Sprachenatelier Berlin in 2003 as both a school and a salon, as an institute where language learning is enhanced by a creative atmosphere, cultural events and intercultural exchange. Our German courses make up the core of our language program. But we also offer courses in more than 40 other languages. A large room occupying half of one floor of the school is dedicated to art and cultural events. Located in Friedrichshain in the east part of the city, Sprachenatelier Berlin is housed in an early 20th century building designated as listed due to its Art Nouveau architectural style. The salon space features the original interior design and is the setting for regular art exhibitions, book readings and concerts."
