Students stay on campus in the Humboldt Institut’s spacious and recently renovated student residences located just a ten-minute walk from Lindenberg’s town centre.
There are shared double rooms and single rooms available and students are provided with full board during their stay.
Students have access to fantastic on-site facilities, including a climbing wall, an indoor swimming pool, an arts and crafts room, a movie theatre and a sports hall.
The beautiful city centre of Lindenberg is just a ten-minute walk away which makes this the ideal location to stay during this immersive trip.
The supportive language school staff will supervise you during classes and activities, too. Curfew for all students is 10 PM from Sunday to Thursday and 12 AM on Fridays and Saturdays.
We understand that every student’s needs are unique so please do not hesitate to inform us of any special requirements or food allergies at the point of booking.
The closest airport is Memmingen. Most of our students have to fly into Zurich or Munich airport on arrival and then depart from Memmingen. They usually arrive on a Sunday morning and leave on a Friday afternoon.
No flights are not included in the price. You will need to arrange your own flights, although we are happy to advise which flight to book.
Transfer between the airport and your school can be arranged. The prices can be found on the dates & prices page.
All meals are included in the price. You will however need money for socialising and shopping during your time away.
The school does not permit friends or even students of the same nationality to share rooms. Staying with a student who you didn’t know before your trip is a great way to widen your circle of friends while getting the chance to practice your language skills with new people. If this makes you feel uncomfortable they school has a limited amount of single rooms available for an additional cost of €100 per week.
Having a foundation of conversational German is beneficial to students going on any of our language courses but even less advanced students will see their fluency flourish in a short space of time during this immersive experience.
From the first moment it was excellent. Stein Study staff meeting us at the airport made things so easy and Tom made sure we had everything we needed when we settled in the host’s house and we knew we could go to him with any concerns we had. The class were great and really focused on speaking French and giving you more confidence. The leaving cert classes helped a lot with preparation and gave us a chance to practice. Outside the classroom the activities were great. We done volleyball on the beach and also visited local towns, it was all amazing and I wouldn’t change a thing! We were given responsibility, trust and respect from everyone. I enjoyed myself thoroughly!
Overall, I really enjoyed my time here. The classes were very good, and I felt like my French improved because of them. All if the teachers were nice and made a real effort. Our host family couldn’t have been nicer! They really made us feel as comfortable as they could. The food was mostly good. The group leaders were so kind. All three of them made such an effort and it didn’t go unnoticed. They really tried to make the actives as fun as they could for us. The tour around the town was good and allowed us to get our bearings which was very useful. The restaurants ect were lovely and we enjoyed going in the evenings.
Overall I found the whole experience extremely positive. Stein study literally organised everything and answered any queries I had. I also found the French school and staff to be particularly approachable and helpful. Josh was initially a bit nervous about going to La Rochelle but quickly settled into his accommodation...
My French was not great when I came to La Rochelle but was not bad and I did not have much confidence to speak it but spending 4 weeks here it has improved written, oral and aural. The French were very patient in La Rochelle when I was trying to speak French, more then I expected and were great help when it came to try to find an English word in French. The Leaving Cert practice was also very beneficial to me as I got to correct it with a French person. The class hours and activities were amazing. I personally feel the activities got me to speak French more casually and the not like school work. My French has improved here in La Rochelle, I was very happy with my stay and would love to return.
I Thought the teachers were very professional and the course was good
I have Found my language Experience very good and I think I have learnt a lot. Our Host was very nice, and I have learnt a lot from listening to their conversations at dinner, going to classes has also been very good and our teachers very good and I felt that I have learnt a lot. I have also really enjoyed doing all the activities an getting to walk around La Rochelle. The teachers are nice, and they ensured that everyone enjoyed the activities. I think La Rochelle is a great place to come as the weather is nice and there is a great night life which had been fun to experience. I feel that I have learnt a lot from the classes and just listening to French people talking when we are out and about
