What Course do we offer?

We offer standard and intensive courses throughout the year. A programme of sports and recreational activities is held as well.

It is understood that students need to grasp all key aspects of a foreign language (speaking, writing, reading, listening and grammar) to a similar degree. Experience shows that only the students who master all of these areas really feel at ease speaking another language. On the first day of classes, a detailed placement test is held that helps the schools to assign students to their corresponding course levels. Small class sizes contribute considerably to students noticing a clear improvement in their language skills by the end of the course

  • For students between 14-17, the Intensive Course provides 30 lessons per week

Accomodation

The centre is located on a park-like campus.

The residence consists almost exclusively of rooms with one or two beds, many of which have a fantastic view of the Alps. Many rooms also have their own shower and bathroom. Healthy, well-balanced meals include three main meals and two snacks daily.

Students staying with host families will have breakfast at home and the rest of their meals at the centre, as this will help to ensure integration between all of the school’s students.

Arrival and Departure

Students are responsible for organising their own flights and must arrive on the Sunday before the course begins and depart on the Saturday after the last day of the classes.

We recommend that students fly into Memmingen or Friedrichshafen Airports. Transfers can be organised at an additional cost.

Transfer Costs: Will be updated at the end of October 2018
