Learn English in "Mainhattan", the cosmopolitan metropolis on the river Main!
Frankfurt is famous for its unique skyline, which gives the city its own special flair. This multicultural city is also the financial center of Europe so English can be heard wherever you go. Our language school is located in the beautiful district of Sachsenhausen, a hip, trendy district that exudes a special charm! A short walk will take you to the river Main and over the bridge downtown! The Museum Embankment is particularly close, where there are many impressive museums to explore.
With an English Language Course in Frankfurt you won't only learn the language, you can also rely on an extensive cultural activity program. In addition, you'll meet language students from all over the world and make friends from different countries.
For participants aged 12 to 17, we offer a supervised program with many activities. Participants aged 18-21 years receive a flexible program with activities that students in this age group can choose to take part in or not. For language lovers who are already over 18 years old, we also offer English language courses for adults.
The language course takes place in our school in Sachsenhausen, just 10 minutes' walk from your accommodation. In addition, the school is just a 15 minute walk to the city center.
The Sprachcaffe language school building is also the headquarters of our company. It offers all modern amenities to make your stay a memorable one. There is a large lounge with a coffee bar, a large terrace where you can relax between or after classes and a computer with internet access.
You will find everything you need within walking distance. There are many cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques, in addition to stations in Frankfurt's well-connected transport system.
If you want to use the internet we have a Wi-Fi network available, and a free computer for students to use. For group assignments, we have a study hall available and a library service providing books to buy or borrow on request.
Even in Germany you can learn effective English: Language courses for students are the best way if you want to improve your English skills quickly and effectively. Here in Frankfurt we offer standard and intensive English courses for learners of all abilities. The classes are not the dry, boring experience you may have had in school - on the contrary, our English teachers let you experience the language in a fun and interactive way.
The English courses for young students in Frankfurt consist of four (standard) or six (intensive) lessons per day, i.e. 20 or 30 lessons a week. Grammar and text work will be part of language teaching, but the main focus is on providing the atmosphere and discussion topics to help students learn to speak freely, as it is only through applying the language in everyday situations that you achieve security and confidence in your knowledge of the English language.

In order for your experience in Frankfurt to be effective from the beginning, your trip will start with a placement test to make sure you're put in the appropriate group with classmates who are similar in ability to you. You can also take our online placement test to see what level you are currently, but don't worry, that result is not final and is not taken into account. When you embark on your language trip, you will start your course on Monday to get as much teaching as possible. When you finish your classes you will receive a certificate certifying your participation in our English courses in Frankfurt, as well as your language level achieved.
Since you will also need a place to stay on your language trip, we offer you three accommodation options in Frankfurt. You have the choice between a selected host family, our residence or a hotel.
With the host family option you will be accommodated in a room that you'll share with another Sprachcaffe student. The family you stay with will provide you with full board including a packed lunch. To ensure the quality of our host families, they are generally not located directly in the city center. However, the school and city center can be reached by public transport in less than 30 minutes from each host family.
Our residence is located a few minutes' walk from the school. There you can stay in a dorm with other young students from around the world.
The hotel in Frankfurt is also near the school and offers students rooms to share with another student, each with shared bathroom.
In our residence each student shares a room with either 1, 2 or 3 other international students. This offers a great opportunity for students to make friends, work on homework together and continue to use their English after class. In order to adequately recharge their batteries, students receive full board: breakfast and dinner are served at the residence and for lunch students get a delicious packed lunch.
The school is only a 10 minute walk from the residence and there's also a subway station and bus stop very close by. You'll be fully mobile and have the best conditions to embark on exciting adventures in Frankfurt!
Please note that only students aged 14-17 will only share a room with other students in this age group, and the same goes for the age group 18-21.
