3. Learn Anywhere in the world via Skype Sessions Filete
For those wishing to continue the learning journey after returning home from our program or for those not able to travel to Bamberg, we’ve developed a very effective course of study via Skype. With Skype videoconferencing it’s possible to have regular lessons with audio and video as if you are sitting in the same room with your teacher. Our students have reported a great experience with this offering and our teachers are as equally pleased. 
”I love my weekly lessons via Skype. The format and technology allows me to maintain my learning momentum and keeps me much more focused than self-study.”

Cultural awareness Filete

What does this mean to us?
Awareness of the fact that culture has left its mark on every human being, and is deeply rooted in our own personalities.
Awareness of the fact that misunderstandings are quite often a result of cultural differences and could be avoided through goodwill and increased cultural knowledge.
Awareness of the fact that every culture has similar basic values and deserves the same respect as one’s own culture.

The Sprachhaus in Bamberg is a place where people from different cultures meet; intercultural communication is practiced here every day. As language and culture are inseparable, learning a foreign language also opens the door to the culture of those countries where that language is spoken. For this reason, language tuition at The Sprachhaus is always intercultural too.German history and geography, manners and customs, German dialects, craziness and oddities, the waste recycling system, the transition to greener energy, plus a healthy dose of German “angst” – all of this contributes to, and enriches, our language lessons.

Success in one’s profession, and in business in general, in today’s global economy, crucially depends on one factor: intercultural competence. Not for nothing is it referred to as the key competence of the 21st century. Intercultural competence goes far beyond the knowledge of a foreign language. It requires fully understanding one’s own culture, which is almost invisible as it is often taken for granted. Only by confronting it with another culture, for instance as experienced during an intensive language stay, does it begin to take real shape and form.

This makes us very interested in your image and perceptions of Germany.Tell us what you’ve heard, read, seen and experienced. And how’s the rest of the world seen in Germany? Let’s find out together and separate what is actually true from popular mythology. Stereotypes, prejudices, clichés; these are a good way to kick off a conversation and gain new insights about each other. But always with a friendly wink and a smile of course.


Exclusively in January and February: Enjoy your stay while snowflakes are whirling outside… Learning German in relaxed atmosphere. Spend your days with your teacher’s familiy. Combine having fun in learning German with your very special and individual wellness program.

Long stay term


New in the program:
Long-term stays for 3 or more months
We are now able to offer the possibility for a long-term stay with Sprachhaus Bamberg.

Perhaps you would like to, or indeed must intensively learn german and have several months in which to do this? In addition to acquiring german language skills, perhaps you would like to get a closer understanding of german culture? Perhaps you need to acquire the necessary level in order to study or work in a german speaking country? If so, then this if the ideal opportunity for you.

With a long-term stay with the Sprachhaus in Bamberg, decide according to your needs and objectives, when is most convenient for you. Choose how many hours per week, from 6 to 30 hours, everything is possible and each long-term stay can be individually customised.

Flexibility is possible:
If you would like to combine your long-term stay with time out to travel within Germany, then let us know.

Year abroad for students:

If you are a student and wish to spend a year abroad at a german school, then we can help organise that and put you in touch with suitable families and also organise additional language lessons.

What does it cost? The price is €880 inclusive of food (full board) and accomodation.

For students wanting to prepare for studying in Germany, we can offer 12 hours a week of tuition as well as food (full board) and accomodation for the cost of €1380 per month, for up to 6 months.

For adults wanting to stay for 3 or more months, we can offer food (half board) and accomodation, for the cost of €160 per week. How many lessons taken per week, will of course affect the final price. As an example a stay of 3 months or more with 10 hours per week of one-to-one tuition, would cost €1800 per month. With 15 hours per week of one-to-one tuition, the cost would be €2400 per month.

For any stays depassing 6 months, then of course we can offer a further reduction.

I grew up in northwestern Germany and found my way through Switzerland and France to Bamberg, where I graduated in Germanistics at the University of Bamberg.

The love for other cultures and people, and a large dose of curiosity were the reasons for founding SprachHaus Bamberg.

My credo: you can reach your language targets in a playful and enjoyable way with a lot of humor!

I grew up in a binational family, which kind of marked me for life, and got an incredibly warm reception I’ll never forget when I was learning Spanish in Spain.

SprachHaus is so much more than just a language school: it’s an unique and irresistible mixture of language learning and training, intercultural communication and training, psychology, hospitality and last not least good cuisine. My issues are Italian language and culture, business and organizational psychology and German history (especially the “dark times”). As an interculturalist, I’m a member of www.sietar-deutschland.de

I’ve learned how to speak the best German – High German – in my hometown near Bremen in northern Germany.

At the University of California at Davis I’ve learned the best methods for teaching German. To understand each type of German I’ve learned in Bavaria.

Originally, I come from the beautiful Bamberg region. I studied German Studies/German as a foreign language and Spanish in Bamberg and Sevilla. After several years teaching at Spanish universities and also at the Goethe-Institut now, I inspire people for the German language and culture in Bamberg. Furthermore, I teach German at the University of Erlangen.

The most important for me: Whether writing, speaking or grammar, the fun should not be missed out.

I graduated in German as a foreign language in Bamberg. I taught German in Ankara, Turkey, and at two universities in Germany. Since 2012 I live in Munich and teach in various courses, such as integration courses and German for the job.

Moreover, I’m giving Skype lessons for SprachHaus Bamberg. Language has its own logic – experiment, play, argue with her and you earn not only a new language but also a new belief!

About Bamberg

Bandera Filete

Why choose Bamberg to learn German?

If you are considering interesting places to learn German, you would most probably think of Berlin, Heidelberg, Munich, or another of the many famous German towns and cities which are well known all over the world. But Bamberg? Never heard of it. Well, if that’s the case, allow us to introduce you to this city of 70,000 inhabitants, located in northern Bavaria.

Even if you had no particular reason for learning German, you would want to come and see Bamberg anyway. The beauty of this city has achieved worldwide recognition over the last two decades. However, as a student actually living in Bamberg, you would get a different view of the city, discovering fascinating places which tourists do not usually get to see.

In one way, Bamberg is a typical German city; it has an historic ‘Old Town’ which has retained its original structure and buildings, many of which date from the early Middle Ages. This is one of the reasons that Bamberg was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 1993. German and European Middle Ages and Baroque history have not only been preserved, but also exist as a living and vital part of modern life.

For the visitor, Bamberg is an accessible city with short streets and is constructed on a human scale. One can reach many important locations on foot, and for those who prefer to explore on two wheels, there are ample cycle paths.

Bamberg offers plenty of variety; the cultural and gastronomic choice is of high quality and able to satisfy almost any taste. Its major sights can be easily seen during the course of a week’s stay. In this way, the city offers its students a perfect balance between study and relaxation.

In addition, Bamberg is a very hospitable city. You can always find somebody to give you directions, and it’s pretty easy to begin a conversation with the locals in one of the city’s many pubs, so you can practise your German straight away.

Despite its antiquity, Bamberg is a youthful city. It has a lot of schools, a university with around 13,000 students, and the large number of pavement cafes, pubs and clubs ensure that the streets are filled with young people night and day.

In a word, the combination of tradition, culture and quality of life in Bamberg proves irresistible to its visitors.



This page shows some examples of our´s customer gratification after staying with us. For us, this is the perfect prove that learning german can be done with fun, attitude and of course interest.
