Course Description

The course is academically demanding and aims to stimulate student interest and keep the lessons dynamic. Optional social activities provide contrast and bring an additional element of fun to the overall programme.

The German language college staff are aware that the students are on holiday and will do all they can to help students enjoy their German experience, both in and outside the classroom.

The college offers great on site facilities including 40 spacious classrooms, a book store, a restaurant and cafeteria and a private garden for relaxing after classes. It is well located in Berlin (in the old Eastern Section) and offers on site accommodation or two Hostel options. The on site accommodation is very popular and makes the school very busy year round, doubly so in the summer months ~ so please book early!

In total there are 40 lessons over 2 weeks (unless a day is lost to a public holiday). This is equal to a term of contact lessons at your school in the UK. Small classes, native speakers, interesting material and a pleasant learning atmosphere all contribute to the learning process. The emphasis is on the active use of language in real situations.

  • All teachers are fully qualified and experienced in the teaching of German as a foreign language
  • Only German will be spoken in class
  • One week+ course offered, two weeks+ enrolment recommended
  • Whilst the college also accepts adults students, they are taught in separate classes to the Teenagers in July & August (but will still be living and studying on site, or in a nearby hostel)
  • German language classes are divided according to age, language level and nationality mix
  • 20 German lessons per week format offered


A range of activities are offered as an inclusive part of this programme
in the morning & the evenings, including:

1) Two planned activities per day (morning and evening) e.g. Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, rowing in Tiergarten Park, New Reichstag, Potsdamer Platz, a night out, barbecues, bowling, dancing or a cinema trip.

2) One excursion per week (Saturday) i.e. Potsdam, Pfauenisnel, Sachsenhausen Island.

3) On-campus activities based on music, games and sports, and creative activities such as making a newspaper or staging a play.

Going Out Permission

Teenagers aged 16/18 years are not allowed out beyond 12.00 midnight on their own but this can be extended at the weekend, but no one on site will oversee these curfew rules (however students too tired to participate or attend classes will be noted, and their parents told).
Parents must be aware that some of the college arranged activities in the evenings will go on later than 12.00 midnight.
Students need to be mature about their behaviour to attend this programme.
Any inappropriate behaviour will be reported to the parents concerned.


Arrive: Sunday   Depart: Sunday a.m.
Fly to Berlin and book a return transfer service from Berlin’s Brandenburg airport, the Hauptbahnhof or main bus station (at extra cost). Students should be in Berlin, at their accommodation, between 09.00 & 17.00 hrs. Please aim to be present on campus at 17.00 hrs – this is when the introductory talk and tests will take place (so no time is wasted on Monday AM)

The courses are very popular and will become fully booked during the July/August period.
Please book early!
