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 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.
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.
The first few days were a bit nerve wracking for me but the school were good at helping me settle in. I had such a good time and I really don’t want to go home. The activities were really super.
I really loved every minute of this trip. Being immersed in the French language really helped me to understand and tune my ear into the language. The school was really great. The teachers really helped everyone and concentrated on topics that would actually improve our French.
This was my second time travelling to France. I met a lovely group of friends and my host was nice. The school is great, my class group was slightly older than me but I was the only irish person in the class meaning I had to work that little bit harder.
It was great to be able to learn French and be surrounded by real French people and experience what it would be like to get up every morning and travel to work or school. The teachers were always nice and I really enjoyed the excursion on the Weekends.
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!
