Description

This fully immersive and intensive German Leaving Certificate preparation course is perfect for fifth years preparing to sit upcoming written and oral exams. The excellent tutors at the exceptional Humboldt Institute language school in Bad Schussenried provide the highest standard of lesson plans to students from all over the world. There are thirty-four weekly lessons included in this Leaving Cert preparation course. 

Thirty of these are taught in small groups which creates a personalised environment where you can learn through constant interaction with fellow classmates. During these classes, you will work to improve their overall comprehension, fluency and German vocabulary.

School Introduction Video

Students can opt to stay between one and four weeks.

Students can fly out any Sunday of the year and begin classes the next day.

You’ll need to arrange your own flights. But we provide you with details of 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.

Transfer between the airport and your accommodation is provided on arrival and departure for a surcharge.

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.

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

Students will stay on campus in the language school’s student residences.
