Companies like Ebay, Lufthansa, Daimler and Deutsche Welle TV train their staff with GLS. GLS is test center for TestDaF, the language certificate for university studies in Germany. 

The GLS German Language School is located in the historic center of Berlin, in trendy "Prenzlauer Berg": Around 1900 this district used to be a poor peoples´ habitat. After WW II Prenzlauer Berg ended up in the communist part of Berlin - with many intellectuals and artists living here. After the fall of the wall the district boomed and becamethe trend district in Berlin.
