German lessons

In general, classes run from Monday to Friday and cover the areas of listening and reading comprehension, writing skills, speaking skills and grammar. In addition, our teachers are happy to include specific topics such as exam preparation. On request we also offer individual dates for the telc examination of different levels (A1 – C1) to groups.

Leisure program

Extracurricular activities allow our students to practice what they have learned in the classroom. Every day after class, as well as on the weekends students get to choose activities from our versatile leisure program, including sports, arts and crafts, social and cultural experiences. This boosts their motivation, promotes tolerance and ensures fun in learning the German language. Furthermore, half-day excursions take place every Wednesday and a full-day excursion every Saturday.

As a special highlight we also offer skiing and snowboarding courses for a surcharge at our course location in Lindenberg during winter.

Arrival and departure

Groups with a course duration of one week arrive on Sunday and depart on Sunday. Groups with a course duration of two weeks and more arrive on Sunday and depart on Saturday.
