    Spend two weeks learning German while enjoying the the Lake Constance Resort Area. Our Summer Holiday program for teens ages 15 - 17 celebrates the great outdoors. Program participants enjoy swimming, paddle boating or stand up paddleboarding, cycling and soaking up the sun at a game of beach volleyball by the lake.

    Our experienced language teachers prepare lively lessons for participants in international groups and give regular feedback on individual progress. Language course assignment is based on placement test results. In addition to group language training, students apply and deepen their proficiency in German twice a week at the "Lernstudio", where tutors and teachers are available to assist and give advice.

    Students will stay in a single or twin room in the Carl Duisberg residence or with selected host families. You will have the opportunity to enjoy Germany with weekend excursions to places such as Freiburg, Black Forest, Stuttgart, Strasbourg (F), and Zurich (CH). For students who are with us in August, our highlight trip is to Europa-Park Rust.
