Course description

If you are looking for maximum learning progress in the shortest time possible, and if you already possess some prior German knowledge, we recommend the "Summer Course 30", with 30 x 45 min. weekly. After Morning Classes there is a Conversation Class in 3 afternoons of the week, where you will be encouraged to actively participate at all times.

You will research current themes and work together with students from around the globe to create presentations for civilisation and cultural projects – always with the aid and support of your trainers.

A multifaceted free time program perfects your summer course and you can readily 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.  This way you can experience face-to-face a living and authentic Germany.

A typical school day

The "Summer Course 30" starts each day at 09.30 am and finishes at 2 pm at two days per week and at 3:30 pm at three days per week. There are three breaks during which you can relax in the neighbouring park, help yourself to a beverage from the cafeteria, check your emails, or chat with your friends.

After the morning class at 2 pm, you can get some lunch at one of the many nearby pubs, cafés, biergartens or bistros or have a picnic in the park.

Fully recharged, it is then time for a lively conversation course, filled with conversations about serious topics as well as games and entertainment.

And if you'd like to relax a bit while still keeping your German skills sharp, then take part in the Freetime Activities like beach volleyball, bowling, swimming, cycling, steamboating on the Elbe, outdoor concerts or cinema.  The free time possibilities are countless.

Weekends we go on excursions where you can discover Dresden's surroundings, like the enchanting Saxon Switzerland, Berlin or even Prague. Everything is included in the price.
