You can fly out any Sunday of the year and start classes the next day.

Students can opt to stay for 1 to 2 weeks

The closest airport is Memmingen

Students stay on campus in the language school’s student residence

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

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.

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.

Transfer between the airport and your accommodation can be arranged for €40 (one way per person)
