About Languages and how long it takes to learn them
As a language school based in Germany, it is always interesting to find out which languages are the most popular to learn and which ones are considered to be the hardest and most complicated.

The differences between different learning styles
Have you ever wondered why it’s easier for you to understand or remember some things better than others? We believe that it has something to do with your learning style. Every student absorbs, processes, comprehends and retains information differently. There are three primarily learning styles. I wonder which one works best for you?

Courses for writing and language all around the world - perfect and businesslike international communication
I have been a member of Claire's students since 2009. There in the beginning I love to remember the English Weekends Away, including movie evenings, cooking English food together such as frog in the hole or real English breakfast and playing the "Who is who?" - game. While time is going on it gave me a big confidence in talking and studying English, to talk to Claire before writing class tests or giving English speeches at class. Now while I'm studying at University I can still feel the impact of Claire's empowering and very helpful lessons. There is no fear to read an English text nor working with is. All in all, I can truly recommend Holfelder Languages, and am really happy to be a part of pupils.

Since I arrived in Germany two years ago, I've been taking private lessons at the Holfelder language school. Claire made every class fun and it was never a chore to attend. My German has improved so much in the limited time and has enabled me to get a good job here in Germany and also to make friends, which is due to my confidence in speaking my mother tongue. Claire also helped me make new friends by going to class with other English speakers.

I have been living in the USA for some time. I improve my English with the online lessons at the Holfelder Sprachschule, regardless of whether I am at home or in the office. I appreciate the flexibility and the competence of the teachers. At a learning pace determined by me, I get the desired fine-tuning for my English skills by "chatting" and analyzing my collected e-mail excerpts.

Claire is an excellent teacher. I had no previous knowledge of German. By creating a fun, relaxed and easy going environment in which to learn, Claire is helping me to make great progress with my German.
