Offered through the excellent language school – the Humboldt Institut, this TY Intensive course in Schmallenberg is another great German language course that offers an intensive programme of 30 lessons per week. 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.
The Bad Fredeburg Academy has an auditorium with a stage for plays and parties, a large lawn for outdoor activities, a sports hall, a campfire and barbecue area so students have plenty to occupy their free time. There are also weekly excursions to attractive destinations in the surrounding area.

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.
I really enjoyed my time in La Rochelle. There were lots of activities such as sailing and bowling. My host was very nice. She was very welcoming.
I have learnt a lot here. I had good craic. I think it helped that the teachers had limited English as it improved my French a lot. I enjoyed the activities after school and the trips in a Saturday, but I think it would be better to have one or two Saturdays off, so we can do what we wanted. My host was very nice, and she spoke little English which also improved my French. Overall, I really enjoyed my time here.
My Language experience was great. I enjoyed participating in class and the activities outside the class. I had great fun with Tony and Melaine during every activity. I feel I have improved greatly in terms of my French during the classes and also had of fun doing it. One of my favourite activities was sailing. Really enjoyed being with my host and learned some French with her as well. Overall, I had a great time in La Rochelle and really enjoyed my stay and have improved my French.
I really enjoyed my time here, I made loads of new friends and I feel really sad leaving La Rochelle, because I really got to know the city very well. I feel I did improve my French, and would have more also having fun.
When I first arrived I had a decent understanding of French oral expression but my host family and the teachers in the school made a great effort to improve my French through various activities and different topics of conversation. We did a lot of afternoon and evening activities which always kept me occupied. At dinner in my house I was always asked about my day in French which I think was hugely effective towards improving my French.
I Thought the teachers were very professional and the course was good
