Studying German in Germany during TY or school holidays is a great way to experience some time abroad and to brush up on your language skills ahead of your LC. It has been proven that there is no better way to improve your foreign language skills than being in the native country itself – studying with other international students and local students alike, who all want to speak the language to you.
In Germany, we work with a well established and respected language school – The Humboldt-Institut which has a well-equipped campus on the edge of the small town of Lindenberg.
The Humboldt-Institut Lindenberg is open all year round and we send students from Ireland every season of the year, starting any Monday. There are breathtaking views of the Alps from the classrooms and bedrooms which are all modern and fully equipped. During their stay, students get the opportunity to partake in a range of recreational activities in their spare time including swimming, mountain biking, miniature golf, ping pong and even snowshoeing in the nearby mountains.
The school’s facilities are beyond impressive with outdoor sports fields, indoor courts and a gym, a climbing wall, indoor swimming pool, barbeque area and a huge lawn for activities and sunbathing in the summer.
There are 2 course choices for study abroad students heading to Lindenberg.
1. TY Intensive Course
The TY Intensive Courses are a great way to improve your German in a short period of time. You will have 30 language classes per week in small groups of 10-12 pupils. You’ll learn alongside other international students and through interactive group work and will improve your overall German comprehension and expression as you practice conversation skills together. There is also plenty of time to enjoy the fully equipped campus.
2. Leaving Cert Prep Courses
These courses have been carefully formulated to help you with your forthcoming LC exams. As well as 30 hours a week of small group classes, you will also receive 4 weekly private lessons which will be tailored to focus solely on the Irish LC syllabus, in order to leave you feeling confident enough to sit your upcoming oral and written. Again, there will still be time for activities and fun on campus with your fellow students as well as weekend excursions.
“It has been really helpful and thanks to the course I’ve improved my German. People, here in Humboldt, are all amazing, staff, tutors and teachers. Thank you for everything. I’ll miss you a lot.“
