The Sandford Language Institute has been running German courses / classes in Dublin 2 & 6 since 1989. Our tutors are native speakers and qualified teachers, teaching the communicative use of the language making it as relevant as possible to every day situations. All of the main language skills of Reading, Writing, Listening, speaking and Use of language (Grammar) are developed in classes.

Enrollment for the upcoming term is now possible. If you are not a total beginner, you can join a course at any time and you will not be charged for any weeks that you have missed or your free trial class. If you join a class and the level proves too high or low, switching level is no problem. Should you have any queries, please contact Shane Zerbe on 01 2601296 or
