Course Programme

The programme of our German intensive course combines an intensive German as a foreign language course in classroom teaching with practical training in small projects.

Language Classes

The morning classes deepen your competence in listening, reading, writing and speaking in German. The course helps you to build and expand your vocabulary, knowledge of grammar and phonetics and gives you loads of practice at communicating in German in a supportive and interactive learning environment. On top of that, during the whole course, you will be learning interesting facts about Germany, its people and culture. Depending on language levels and interest, you will also visit neighbouring towns of Weimar, for example Erfurt and Jena, so you can experience the German culture firsthand.

Project Classes

In collaboration with the Klassik Stiftung Weimar, we offer a supplementary feature: the museum project. This will give you the opportunity to practice your language skills on site in one of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar's museums, for example the art collection of the castle, the Park Cave or the Roman House. Join us on this journey of discovery, and improve your German and your cultural knowledge at the same time! We are looking forward to seeing you and wish you an exciting and rewarding summer!
