German Summerschool

The German Summer School is a course running for 8 days designed to rapidly improve your German language skills and increase your understanding of the cultural life of German speaking countries.

The Summer School is far more than just a language course! We offer tuition in the mornings, a choice of stimulating special interest workshops in the afternoons, and a wide spectrum of activities and excursions outside core hours.

Professional Learning Facilitators

Professional Learning Facilitators are teachers of German with extensive experience and training. They offer individual consulting and support, as well as general advice with any questions regarding the teaching of German.


You have an idea, a suggestion or a wish, but you are not able to develop a workshop yourself? Professional learning facilitators are always looking for new ideas for their PDs. In case you have such a suggestion, idea or wish you can leave it here. Your suggestions will be published here and thus trainers as well as teachers can access them. (These suggestions can be subject to modification.) A trainer or contact person will get in touch with you. Perhaps a workshop will be developed by the help of your ideas.
