Welcome to SPRACHwerk!

SPRACHwerk was founded in 2005 in the idyllic Fachwerkhof (or “Half-timbered Courtyard”) in Kreuzberg’s “Bergmann” neighborhood. Unlike conventional language schools, we specialize in one-on-one instruction and use a unique approach based on active speech production followed by a detailed written error analysis, rather than relying on textbooks or third-party materials as the focus of the lessons. Our philosophy is based on two fundamental principles:

  • That the best way to learn a language is by actively speaking it; and
  • That the best time to learn any particular element of vocabulary, grammar, or pronunciation is when you require it for your own language production.

We specialize in individualized language training for school, work, travel, and preparation for the Abitur and other state-administered exams.
