Improve your German language skills and then ski or snow board in Kitzbühel, Austria
|November to April|
With an emphasis on conversation, the small classes in the mornings mean you make above average progress in producing the German you know and improve at a very rapid rate. The afternoon skiing, often accompanied by a teacher from the school, gets you out on the slopes in the fresh air, speaking German on the ski lifts.
Whilst students generally ski in the afternoons in Kitzbühel, this may sometimes change, depending on the local weather conditions to morning skiing and afternoon language lessons. Students arrange ski hire and passes on the Monday afternoon and generally ski every afternoon. Some stop for a late lunch after an hour’s skiing, others will just ski all afternoon (it really is up to you). Ski lessons can be arranged if required, but most students enjoy free skiing as individuals or with other college students. College staff will help anyone sorting out skis and boots etc on their first day and are happy to answer any questions regarding the best slopes given the current snow conditions.
Cut costs by taking your own skis – the airport taxis are used to passengers with a lot of luggage!
Alternatively hire them for around 200 euros per week.
