Cheryl from the USA searched German language schools on the internet and contacted Renata.

Renata is also a US citizen who is now living in Switzerland. She attended classes with TREFFPUNKT in late 2002.

Cheryl was particulary interested in Renata's experiences in business German. Here is the answer to her specific enquiry.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April 2003

Hello Cheryl,

Please do forgive my delay in getting back to you, especially in light of my good news.

Yes, I can emphatically recommend Treffpunkt as a means to learn German. Most likely you, as did I, have researched the various German language schools in Germany. As I did so and my choices of schools narrowed, Treffpunkt was always among the top choices. Eventually, I realised that Treffpunkt was at the top of my list. I am pleased to say that I made the right decision to attend the school.

I was the usual first day student; a bit wary of my new surroundings, and not quite feeling as though I belonged. But as soon as I was introduced to school personnel, such feelings vanished. One is immediately taken into the fold, and looked after as much as one requires.

You may have noticed in Treffpunkt's advertisement and school description that it lists one of its unique points as ensuring that students have contact with Bamberg inhabitants. This should be a selling point of all schools; that students are as a matter of course integrated into local life. However, you may have found in your research that such is not the case. It is, though, at Treffpunkt. If the school had no other selling point, and it has many, this alone should be a decisive factor in your choice of school.

You inquired into the business classes on offer at Treffpunkt. Again, I can highly recommend them. If this is anything to go by, after my first business lesson, I left the lesson far too tired to continue in anything but the most rudimentary of German, and could do no more than listen in English. The reason was that the lesson was demanding such that it was the first time that I had had to present myself, think, listen and plan ahead in my thoughts in German - all at once. (Something one does everyday in one's own native tongue, without even realising the difficulty of it.) I found that I was not just encouraged in my efforts, but that it was seen as a given that I would succeed. Such faith in me I found reassuring, and should my own self-confidence ever have flagged, I had found I well from which I could dip as needed.

An important point to note is the emphasis, I feel, that Treffpunkt places on learning the grammar of the German language. My experience, and I was no exception to this example of impatience, was that everyone wanted to jump right into conversation, and sometimes felt thwarted in their efforts to do so as yet another lesson in grammar was introduced. The impatience, however, was short-lived, as it is soon evident that no speech is worth uttering in German if the grammar is not correct. So, in addition to simply learning the mechanics of the language, any student leaving Treffpunkt can feel very confident indeed at having been inculcated with a solid basis of grammar.

I was in Bamberg for one month. For such a small city, the cultural offerings are extensive. It would certainly be a good idea to partake of them, should time permit. I add this last caveat as I applied myself so assiduously to study while in Bamberg that it was not until near the end of my stay that I could fully enjoy all that was on offer to me. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to avoid this mistake, as the school offers not just its own courses, not just its own personable, knowlegeable and extremely capable staff of teachers, but also the highlights of an historic town and its surroundings. Not to be missed - any of it.

When might you attend classes in Germany? I attended in late autumn, early winter. It was fun to be there during the lead up to end of year festivities. But I was almost jealous of those students who had attended in summer, as there seems to be that much more going on at that time of year. I do intend to attend Treffpunkt again. Should circumstances permit, experiencing Bamberg in spring or summer would be my aim.

Might our schedules collide? I would look forward to hearing from you, whatever your decision.

Bis bald!
