Our holiday courses are designed for teens ages 15 to 17 and combine intensive language training with a diverse activity program. Students may choose to enjoy the picturesque, snow-filled Alps in the winter or discover the Lake Constance region’s many outdoor sports activities in the summer.
Tip: For young people who want to improve their German and have fun with teens from all over the world.
Our experienced language teachers prepare lively lessons for participants in international groups and give regular feedback on individual progress. Language course assignment is based on placement test results. In addition to group language training, students apply and deepen their proficiency in German twice a week at the "Lernstudio", where tutors and teachers are available to assist and give advice.
There is a new activity program each week, providing lots of opportunities in the afternoon and on the weekend to explore Germany, get to know the culture and speak German in "real life" situations. There are day trips to the state capital Stuttgart and the college town Freiburg. Sunday is always a free day.
Program participants stay in the Carl Duisberg residence or in homestay families. Meals are included with accommodation. [Find out more]
