Teaching materials

Teaching materials

In our courses, we place great emphasis on a communicative, varied curriculum. These teaching methods may differ from those you are used to experiencing at home. We focus on the oral usage of the language so that you can practice and use German during your stay with us. Of course, there are also supplementary written exercises, especially right at the beginning. In these written exercises, we are not measuring how much is written. 

Currently we are using the following course materials (modifications possible):

  • Worksheets and Magazines
  • Audio and video materials
  • Games

Teaching materials included in course price.

The Season and Winter Courses take place each week Monday through Friday mornings beginning at 9:00 am and ending around 12:30 pm. In between, there is a short break. The two afternoon seminars are always Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm.  During periods of peak capacity it may be that the normal morning sessions will be held in the afternoons. We do our best to stick to the schedule, but it is possible there may be changes on short notice.
