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.

tudents have access to fantastic on site facilities, including a climbing wall, an indoor swimming pool, an arts and crafts room, a movie theatre and a sports hall.

The closest airport is Memmingen. Most of our students have to fly into Zurich or Munich airport on arrival and then depart from Memmingen. They usually arrive on a Sunday morning and leave on a Friday afternoon.
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.

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 €100 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.
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.
The whole experience was extremely positive. Stein study literally organised everything! The French school and staff were particularly approachable and helpful.
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.
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 spent a month in La Rochelle with a wonderful host lady. La Rochelle is a fantastic location as not only is it beautiful but it is a very accessible city. It was a wonderful experience and I wish I'd been brave enough to book for longer.
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
