Summer School

German courses for young adults

Our courses for teenagers (13 to 16 years) offer not only a wide variety of sports and cultural activities, but also tailor-made linguistic preparation for study at a German-speaking university.

The Augustinum - a private boarding school in the center of Graz - provides optimal learning and recreational facilities for the [dig] teenager programm. Our students live in modern rooms with peers from different countries. The school's kitchen offers healthy, local food on a daily basis. Supervision is important for us. 

Two or four weeks of language learning with games, sports and fun - learn German and prepare to study at a German-speaking university! Through intensive language work with age-appropriate teaching materials the students acquire linguistic competence in the morning and practice varied interesting tasks in the afternoon.

Ich habe mehrere Deutschkurse bei [dig] besucht bis B2. Ich habe viel gelernt. Deutsch in Graz ist einfach super und ich würde dieses Institut jedem empfehlen.


Our trained coaches supervise the recreational and sports programm which leaves nothing left to be desired: squash, hockey, badminton, climbing, archery, skating, hiking ... or just relaxing at the swimming pool. Always surrounded by German language!
