Are you a TY student looking for something worthwhile to do over the winter months? If you study German, then use this year effectively to improve your language skills with a study abroad course in Germany. But that’s not all! At Stein Study, we recognize that students want to fully enjoy their TY and experience as much as possible during this important year, so we’ve launched an exclusive programme that combines German language classes with winter sports.
Skiing and snowboarding fun!
Have you always wanted to learn to ski or snowboard but haven’t yet had the opportunity? Or perhaps you’re already a seasoned skiing/snowboarding pro who wants to have some fun on the slopes this winter. Either way, our exciting new language course – German and Ski in Lindenberg, offers students the opportunity to ski or snowboard each afternoon following their morning German lessons.
Students attend 25 German lessons per week in the mornings before heading to a nearby ski slope with the school’s welfare workers for 2 to 3 hours of ski/snowboard lessons and practice. On Saturdays, the students go on a full-day excursion to a bigger skiing resort in the Alps.
The programme is designed for total ski/snowboard beginners as well as for those with some prior experience. All equipment is included as well as a lift ticket.

As well as having a fantastic time on the slopes, you’ll also be perfecting your German language skills ready for your LC exams. The course is run by the esteemed language school – The Humbolt Institute in Lindenberg, Germany. Students attend 25 lessons per week in small groups of about 10. The experienced and well-qualified tutors work interactively we the students to improve their language comprehension, expression and oral skills.
