Our range of online German courses

"(..) It´s true that nothing beats the real classroom environment, But the live online courses offered are pretty damn close, so why not give it a try. (...) The teachers have been fantastic, have taken to teaching through Zoom like ducks to water, and any technical problems that we´ve encountered have been quickly overcome by the hardworking team. Thanks Insula Sprachschule team and keep up the great work. (..)"
