Dobar dan Hrvatska!

From 2 – 6 April this year, a number of our team members were able to take part in a further
education programme titled Adult Education Institution Dante in the Croatian port of Rijeka.

During the five days, we were immersed in the world of learning, including interactive workshops and productive exchange with colleagues. It was a valuable opportunity to gain new perspectives, deepen our knowledge and strengthen relationships within the team. 🙌

Food for thought was complimented by dinner in a local restaurant, offering an opportunity to become personally acquainted with Dalmatian cuisine.😋

Many thanks to Movetia – Austausch und Mobilität for their support!

Sustainability strategy for 2024

Flying Teachers is committed to sustainability.
We aim to obtain a sustainability certificate in 2024.

We will work out the basis for this with our sustainability officer, Christoph Zahner.

Radka Höfer, our German teacher and school tutor, wrote to us on 1 December:

You will find the best customers/learners “ever”. I LOVE all my students, no matter what age.
The courses are so much fun and it is just great to see how even beginners progress step by step and notice that it helps them in everyday life/job. A very skeptical participant in a (company) course recently said that he was “almost” having fun with German for the first time. That’s nice, isn’t it?!
