Description

We are affiliated with an excellent language school in Lindenberg called the Humboldt Institut. The dedicated team at this quality assured school provide German tutoring, accommodation and activity programmes of the highest standards to make this an ideal study abroad option for TY students.

 As part of the intensive German course, students will attend 30 lessons per week in groups of approximately 10 people. The small classes create a personalised environment where students can work interactively to practice their German comprehension and expression. Your experienced and fully qualified tutors use stimulating teaching methods to create classes that are educational as well as enjoyable. The 30 weekly lessons will improve your overall fluency and confidence as you increase your German vocabulary and develop your conversation skills.

Students stay on campus in either single or shared double rooms. There is plenty to do at the school including sports, swimming and arts and crafts. The pretty city of Lindenberg is just a 10 minute walk away.

While all meals are provided, you’ll need money for socialising and shopping during your time away.

Having a foundation of conversational German is beneficial to students going on any of our language courses but even less advanced students will see their fluency flourish in a short space of time during this immersive experience.

Students can opt to stay from 2 weeks to 10 months

You’ll need to arrange your own flights. But we are happy to help advise you on the most direct route.

Students can opt to share a room with a friend or can be placed with another student if they have travelled alone. Staying with a student who you didn’t know before your trip is a great way to widen your circle of friends while getting the chance to practice your language skills with new people.
