Programme

Lessons

Taking German lessons and taking part in activities in German is the best way for young people to learn and feel like they are on holiday at the same time. The programmes offer 20 lessons per week taking place every morning from Monday to Friday, in classes of 15 students maximum (12 on average).

Activities

Activities are organised four afternoons per week from Monday to Thursday. Sports, fun and creative activities available. Friday afternoons are free: students can explore the city with other students from the school. Excursions are planned for the Saturday. Sundays are spent with the host family.

Accommodation with host families

Shared room

The families are carefully chosen depending on your preferences, for example any special dietary requirements or allergies. They generally live in quiet districts in the suburbs or in small nearby towns, well linked with public transport (maximum 45 minutes between the family and school). The families are used to welcoming international students and provide excellent supervision, notably for younger students.

Our partner only places young people together of different nationalities. The accommodation is in shared rooms with full-board.
