Most English as a Foreign Language courses focus on practical usage. This EFL class specializes in creativity and play. We will read language-bending stories, discuss proper usage and the purposeful breaking of rules, and read each other's creative work in a workshop setting. 

If you're an artist, curator, copyeditor, translator, musician, or any other creative professional who depends on English in your business, this course has been designed with you in mind.

Rebecca Rukeyser is a TESOL-certified instructor who has lived and worked in South Korea, Japan, Turkey, and China.

"As a writer and editor, Rebecca has an extraordinary aptitude for understanding work in its big silhouettes and in its finer textures. She’s clear-eyed and curious and deliberate. She offers serious attention to others’ pages. I’ve been so grateful to have her as a reader and literary confidante."

— Amanda Goldblatt, writer and teacher

Best in the business...

“The instructors at the Berlin Writers' Workshop are among the best in the business: brilliant writers, thorough editors, thoughtful teachers, and insightful critics. That all this literary talent has descended on Berlin is tremendously exciting.”

— Carmen Maria Machado, author, Her Body and Other Parties

Enormously helpful...

"Whether offering me practical guidance about how to restructure a story, recommending a book or essay that I might find useful, or simply encouraging me to keep going, their intelligence and mentorship have helped me and my writing enormously."

— Ariel Lewiton, Director of Marketing and Publicity, Sarabande Books
