Heidelberg: a place where you can learn languages. Just languages? No….lots of different cultures come together here – from America to Japan, via Europe and Africa. There’s a good study atmosphere here – we learn nice and steadily. Thanks to the intensive method of teaching, we can already speak German in just a short time. I’m really satisfied and my advice is: Come, there’s a whole new world waiting for you!Dario Miguel (Portugal)
