Course description

For our youngest German learners we have organized an International Junior Course right in the beautiful City of Dresden.
You can attend German lessons specially designed for young people and full of variety, fun and games.  The lessons are lively and inter-active, so you will be compelled to participate the whole time.

You will also participate and create presentations in two workshops on ecological and political themes along with other classmates from around the world.  Of course, competent trainers will be there and always ready to lend a hand.

A multifaceted free-time program rounds off your summer course and you will be able to try out your newly gained German skills.  Field trips and excursions are prepared and accompanied by people who know Dresden well. You will have the opportunity to meet interesting people and places around Dresden. In this way you will have the chance to experience authentic Germany - live and face-to-face.

A typical school day

Your German summer junior course starts everyday at 9.30 am. There is a break from 10.30 to 11.00 am, where you can rest the mind from intensive learning and check emails or talk with your classmates from around the world.
The class ends at 1 p.m. and then lunch is served at a restaurant near by the school. After the lunch break you may wish to try out what you have learned in numerous free time activities. After dinner you can watch films or TV in German, listen to some German rock or pop music and play a round of table tennis, football or frisbee in the park next door.
At weekends we go on field trips and you can explore the sites in and around Dresden, like the enchanting Saxon Switzerland, the VW Glass Factory or the famous Zwinger and its world famous art gallery. We also organize tours to Berlin, Meißen or Leipzig.

More Highlights are

Cinema & BBQ on the Elbe, Museum Night, Swimming Pool>ElbeMare<, Goethe-Schiller-Museum Weimar, Schloss Pillnitz, Porcelain Factory Meißen, rafting on the Elbe, end of course party with Salsa course and much much more.

Transfers

You'll have to make your own arrangement to get to Dresden, but we are there to help.
Dresden has both an international train station and airport.  Often however, it is more cost effective to travel into Berlin or Leipzig, whereby a transfer would be the best option.  For example, it's just 90 minutes by car or train from Berlin to Dresden.
Additionally:
• pick up from airport/train station Dresden = 50 EUR
• pick up (by train) from airport/train station Berlin, Leipzig = 150 EUR
• Health, accident and liability Iinsurance= 29 EUR
