We are affiliated with an excellent language school in Lindenberg called the Humboldt Institut. The dedicated team at this quality assured school provide German tutoring, accommodation and activity programmes of the highest standards to make this an ideal study abroad option for TY students.
As part of the intensive German course, students will attend 30 lessons per week in groups of approximately 10 people. The small classes create a personalised environment where students can work interactively to practice their German comprehension and expression. Your experienced and fully qualified tutors use stimulating teaching methods to create classes that are educational as well as enjoyable. The 30 weekly lessons will improve your overall fluency and confidence as you increase your German vocabulary and develop your conversation skills.
Students stay on campus in either single or shared double rooms. There is plenty to do at the school including sports, swimming and arts and crafts. The pretty city of Lindenberg is just a 10 minute walk 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 €160 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 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.
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.
My daughter travelled with Stein Study to Cadiz for 2 weeks last June and had a very positive experience. Nikki from Stein Study was super to deal with. She answered all my queries and was very efficient. The accommodation was close to the school and the family were very friendly. The girls ate out most nights so I would budget that in. The school was well run and any issues we had were dealt with immediately. My daughter felt her conversational Spainish improved while there. I would definitely recommend the trip but would suggest staying longer if you really want to improve you skills.
I enjoyed learning French by playing games through French during school. I think that learning French this was has improved my vocal and the leaving cert prep classes did help me prepare for my exams next year.
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.
Having gone on this trip, I finally got my head around the grammars. The main highlights were making friends and I still keep in contact with the girl who stayed in the same house as me and we mainly communicate through French. I also enjoyed independently touring Rouen- seeing the Notre Dame Cathedral and eating out and meeting up with friends in the evening. "
