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 am 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 ...
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...
I thought the whole experience was first class. From the school to the activities to free time, I really enjoyed everything the school had to offer. I thought Tom was very kind and well prepared for everything. I really enjoyed it all and can’t say a bad thing about any of it. My host family also could not have been kinder and more welcoming towards me, the activities we did as well were very good. I particularly enjoyed the sailing. I would recommend this trip and will make sure my younger brother comes here.
My standard of French really improved during my time here especially my oral and aural. Oral work was definitely what I found most difficult prior to my time in La Rochelle however I find it so much easier now. The morning classes were really beneficial when we spoke about general topics such as the media on sport for example. It was really good to practice Leaving Cert papers too however I don’t think it was necessary to do as many as we did.
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
I’ve loved my time away in La Rochelle. I came here not having a huge amount of French. And now I fell l have a good understanding of all the basic and feel I have improved hugely. We went sailing every Friday and that wold have to be one of the highlights of the trip. Going into shops and buying something, I struggled at the start but a few weeks in I had no trouble. I’ve really enjoyed the last month.
