I had one of the best times of my life there, while studying German, living it up in Cologne. I felt they really placed a special emphasis on using efficient and creative teaching methods, making their students learn something new everyday, getting along with the others and feeling comfortable when speaking, writing, expressing yourself in a foreing language.Lucas
