This German language course is an excellent opportunity to learn a new language, immerse yourself in a new culture and make new friends from all around the world. The study plan takes into consideration your current level, your needs and the length of your course.
Some people study German for self-enrichment or want to know how to tell the time or talk on the phone in German. or to satisfy short term language requirements in high school, college, university or career goals. Others however, though, such as university or Gap students, aspiring teachers, translators or others with long term career goals, study the language as part of a formal training programme. For this latter group of students, formally proving competency in the language is a requirement and this is where the German Exams are of great value.
Further information can be found under the Munich/German language courses descriptions.
You can choose to live with German nationals by booking host (private household) accommodation. This is a great way to immerse yourself in daily German life. It will mean a commute to school each day, but also means you get to talk to native speakers out of class, share their daily routine and experience German culture as it’s lived by real people.
Alternatively if you’d prefer not to live with hosts, students can choose to stay in Student Studios or the shared Student House.
Student Studios or Shared Apartments. There are various apartment buildings providing studios or apartments, where students can self-cater and live independently.
The Student House is a longer commute from the school, but it offers a great chance to live with other language students in a communal situation. It’s a good option for older teens or those in their 20s who’d prefer to live together. There are several bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and dining area, a small living room and a private bathroom.
There will always be a lot to consider before choosing a German Gap Year course (or the accommodation), so feel free to discuss the options with CESA if you want further advice.
