Students stay at the Bad Fredeburg Academy which is in the picturesque centre of the town and classes take place at the local school, just a few minutes from the academy.
Schmallenberg is especially popular for its flexible system of courses, with weekly arrival and departure.

Students live in twin and a few multiple occupancy rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. We carefully choose the students who will share a room with each other, taking care to match roommates who have a comparable German language level and are of similar age, yet speak different native languages. This way we encourage them to speak and practice German with each other outside of the classroom. Boys and girls are housed separately.
The friendly atmosphere of the building will help the students to soon feel at home in the new environment. The students have Wi-Fi access at the school.
Our students receive three meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) as well as a snack daily.
Laundry service is offered to all students free of charge once a week for their personal laundry. Bed linen and towels will be provided and changed regularly.
The closest airport is Frankfurt.
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.
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.

Very Good, the games and activities were very good to help people get to know each other and the freedom afterwards helped this too. The host’s were very friendly and seemed happy to have us. Everyone was included. Teachers were very nice and friendly. The classes were very good.
It was an enjoyable experience. The second week was more enjoyable as there were more activities which were all very enjoyable. Improved in my French during the time I was here – mainly due to the classes
My overall experience was extremely positive. During my time here. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect such as the classes and the activities organised at Inlingua. The activities were so varied and the organisers did everything to make everyone feel welcome and to make sure everybody was enjoying themselves. The French classes were all so interesting and both of the teachers that I had were very friendly and helpful. We covered so many topical over the two weeks and the teachers always made each topic interesting and easy to understand. We also had classes for leaving cert prep spread over 5 classes during 2 weeks I found these classes so helpful for the understanding of the exam next year and our teachers were so helpful and accommodating towards us. Staying with a host family was also great for getting the full French experience and our host family made us feel very comfortable. I enjoyed the whole trip and made so many new friends from my trip.
Overall it was a very good experience and I really enjoyed it. Most of the classes were very good and I learned a lot. I do think that some of the exam prep classes were a bit long. All the organized activities were really fun and enjoyable. The house was very nice and in a good location not being too far from school or the town. I would recommend this to others.
I really enjoyed staying in La Rochelle. I think that I learned a lot if French and I really enjoyed that classes. I loved the activities and I think they really enhanced my experience. All of the teachers were lovely. My host was very nice. She had a lovely house and gave us enough independence. The only aspect that I didn’t enjoy was the food, but I never really liked French food anyways and I had to enhance myself in the culture.
My experience with my language experience was overall really enjoyable. My host family was so nice and gave us really nice accommodation of such high standard. They made me feel so welcome. The food was also delicious. I also really enjoyed my classes in school because I really did learn so much. The activities were really well organised and I had a lot of fun taking part in them. During my stay I made so many new friends and really had such a good time.
