Germany is located in the heart of Europe, surrounded by no less than 9 neighboring countries! With over 82 million inhabitants Germany has the largest population in Europe, after Russia. Germany has many different and charming landscapes: from flat farming country in the north to the rolling hills in the heart of the country, to the magnificent Alps, located in the south.
An extended stay in a German Secondary School Programme is an ideal opportunity for Irish teenagers to become a fluent German speaker at a young age. Students are fully immersed in the German way of life and culture through daily attendance at a German secondary school and by living with a German Host Family. This programme is particularly popular with Transition Year students.
The experience is further enhanced by the support of local representatives familiar with cultural differences and cultural adjustment. Participating in our Secondary School Abroad Programme:
- Paves the way to excellent exam results
- Provides full immersion that allows students to become fluent at a young age
- Encourages independence in young people
- Broadens cultural horizons
