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.
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
I'm delighted to give a review of Anne-Marie’s 6 week stay in Cádiz. She would tell you that it was the highlight of her TY year and a tremendous opportunity for her to mature and experience increased levels of independence. She learnt a considerable amount in Clic for the three weeks she was there and enjoyed the cultural experience of the three weeks she had in college. She found the children exceptionally warm, welcoming and interested in her. Anne-Marie’s host mum Maria was really wonderful. She spent a lot of time with Anne-Marie allowing her time to practice the Spanish she was learning and she and her husband were very kind. I couldn’t speak highly enough of them. Cádiz is a wonderful town for teenagers to visit, to learn a language in a safe and interesting environment. Anne-Marie always felt comfortable walking around town and she became adept at taking buses.
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 love it! I improved my French so much!
The classes in the morning were great each one was fully prepared. A planned out which helped a lot. At the start I found it hard to learn French through speaking it but got better throughout. The exam prep classes served to last for a lot longer than they did but were effective. I would prefer exam prep in the morning than classes afterwards personally. I would’ve preferred more free time instead of activities
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.
