Summer school for young adults (age 17 plus)

Our courses
For us learning German means to actively use language. Special trained and experienced instructors teach small groups in age-appropriate classes according to modern methods. Five units held before noon consist of speaking, writing, reading, listening and grammar exercises. On two afternoons per week, participants have the opportunity to hold presentations and to participate in discussions so as to overcome language barriers and to playfully extend their vocabulary. One constantly speaks German, anytime and anywhere. This enables our students to make great progress in a minimum of time.


Our leisure programm
Together with our students we discover local sights, visit a variety of museums and we regulary organize excursions through Styria and to Vienna. Our trained coaches supervise recreational and sports programs which leave nothing to be desired: squash, hockey, badminton, climbing, archery, skating, hiking .... or just relaxing at the swimming pool - students are always surrounded by German language.



Board and lodging
Lodging at student hostels
Vacation course participants are accommodated in a student hostel which provides them with double rooms, breakfast and snacks. It takes approximately 20 minutes to get to our summer school Deutsch in Graz.
Lunch and dinner are served at the school’s cafeteria. Our course participants are treated like adults and are independent and autonomous. At the hostel, our leisure time coordinators only look after them in the evening and at night.

Lodging at host families
Young adults have the opportunity to stay with a host family who provides a private room and half board (breakfast, dinner). Lunch is served at the boarding school.
