Summer courses in Augsburg
Being the third biggest town in Bavaria, Augsburg, has its own distinctive charm. Life is more unhurried and less hectic here than elsewhere. Everywhere you find burbling fountains, people sitting in street cafés or students gathering for a football match in the parks. And of course, you can breathe history everywhere in town. In the Renaissance times Augsburg was a center of architecture, music and painting. The painter Holbein’s and the composer Mozart’s ancestors lived here, not to forget another well-known Augsburg citizen, the playwright Bert Brecht. Once you have been here, you will come back – because learning German is fun here.
Listening, speaking and reading within a playful, creative context form the core of the tuition that is much practice-oriented. Tuition always takes place in the mornings. Courses are supplemented by afternoon excursions that are carefully prepared by the teaching staff and discussed later in class. On free afternoons you can also do sports or discover the German culture with your new friends, having fun and at the same time putting into practice what you have just learned.
