API at the Humboldt-Universität in Berlin

January Intersession: Students who want to study abroad in Berlin during the January term will follow an intensive German language course of instruction during the mornings, complemented by cultural lectures and activities in the afternoon. Language and Culture Summer: Students who choose to study abroad in Berlin in the summer language and culture program may choose from a number of challenging courses including art history, German and regional studies, cinema, and more. Instruction is in German, and is generally geared toward intermediate and advanced level students, though there is an option course for high-beginning level students. Most courses spend one half to two-thirds of the time on language instruction and practice, while the remainder of the time (generally afternoon lectures) are involved with a specific cultural lectures, site visits, etc. HIGHLIGHTS A city once divided, Berlin lies at the heart of Germany – literally and figuratively. While it is the second most populous city in Europe (metropolitan area notwithstanding), it maintains a more tranquil feel than other large cities, as 1/3 of the city is composed of forests, gardens, and parks. Berlin is not only the political capital of Germany, but arguably one of Europe’s capitals of art, culture, and politics. Designated a UNESCO “City of Design”, it possesses amazing architecture, cuisine, museums, and music and is a favored destination for young travelers and students. Berlin is also home to some of the top universities in Germany and all of Europe, including API’s partners at Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

Placements are available to teach conversational English in one of two ways: co-teach with a local Colombian teacher in 9-11th grade public school classrooms or at adult vocational training centers.
