Year-round German Courses for Kids and Teenagers

Class in session

Our German courses for children and teenagers are offered year-round in Bad Schussenried and Lindenberg. This offers a great variety of starting dates and a flexible course duration. The intensive German courses comprise either 25 lessons (children) or 30 lessons (teenagers) of 45 minutes per week.

The curriculum has a high learning progression, as it is designed, among other things, for students planning to go to school in Germany, or who would like to noticeably improve their academic performance in German lessons in their home country. The lessons are especially structured and designed for younger and adolescent students.

German Summer Courses for Kids and Teens

In front of the school

Additional German summer courses are available from June to August in different locations in Germany and Austria. Summer courses for teenagers are located in the centers of exciting cities like Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Munich or Vienna. The German courses for children are held in smaller locations. The safety of the students is always guaranteed - regardless of the course center chosen.

Like the year-round German courses, the summer courses also comprise either 25 or 30 lessons per week and follow the same curriculum. The lessons aim to close the students’ individual knowledge gaps and build on the existing knowledge to achieve a sustainable learning progress.

Therefore, each student takes a placement test on the first day of class. Based on the test result, students are placed in the optimal class for their language level. Thanks to the individual placement, the German language skills of each student are improved at the appropriate level.
