Groupon offers Language Courses (Zürich special)

Hi all

I saw that Groupon has some language courses on offer today

- 10 Lunch time lessons at 72% off (German or French) http://www.groupon.ch/deals/zurich-s...inguis/3375276
- 40 lessons (German) at 56% http://www.groupon.ch/deals/zurich-s...schule/3396512

I thought someone might be interested.

I have got nothing to do with the language courses above. I don't know the Groupon website very well and as such am not experienced and don't know of any hidden charges or other implications an offer like the above might have on the buyer.

Ain't gonna work for a beginner. The alemania offer is only good for B1 courses and above.

Yeah but it's valid for 12 months or so. So you do A1 and 2 then use the voucher for B1 either way you save 300CHF and learning German you really need to do up to B2 at least...

It feels like a contorted way to stay motivated for German. Spend the money for B!+ or B2 now and then by hook or by crook get one's german up to speed by the end of the year for the classes.......might work, I dunno.

Re: Groupon offers Language Courses (Zürich special)

is the alemania one still available? or when is it becoming available? cause I can't find it on the groupon site. Im currently doing the A1/1 course at alemania, but was planning on doing self study after and then taking classes again for the B level.
so sounds like it would be perfect.

By the way quick bit of advice for anyone attending alemania. buy your own text books at orell fussili. I spent 21.90CHf on the book instead of 70CHF they quoted me in my invoice.

There is another offer. This time it's for an online language course.

http://www.groupon.ch/deals/online-d...langue/3517695

I am thinking of buying myself one of those offers to learn a new language (spanish maybe?) but am not too sure about learning a new language from scratch with an online course.
