The City

Cologne is Germany’s fourth-largest city, most famous for its cathedral, the Dom. Heavyly destroyed during World War II, the city scape is characterized by a mixture of roman, old german and modern elements. The city at the Rhine offers all kinds of attractions and its people are known for their openness, liberalism and joie de vivre.

The School

IH Köln – Insula is located in Köln-Ehrenfeld, a multicultural and young neighbourhood. It’s close to the main street Venloer Straße which offers a big variety of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops.
The school itself has got seven classrooms that look different from what one might expect from a language school and allow students to feel at home and comfortable as the atmosphere is considered an important factor of a succesfull learning experience.

The Courses

Focussing on German as a foreign language the school offers standard language courses (in groups or 1:1) as well as tailormade workshops and trainings for professional purposes(German for doctors) and exam preparation. We teach in small groups consisting of up a maximum of 10 students.
