We offer 30-lessons group courses. The 30-hour group course consists of 30 hours of 60 minutes each. Our group courses normally last 5 days: Monday-Friday (for special requests please ask us!).
Group size: We normally have at least 2 learners and we don’t have more than 6 learners in a group course
(A higher number of participants is also possible on request, e.g. in closed groups, please ask us!).
Before the course starts, the participants can get in touch with the teacher via e-mail to discuss content, methodological and organizational requirements.
The course itself and the course schedule can only partially be compared to traditional language classes.The content, methods and organization of the courses are tailored to the wishes and needs of the course participants. This gives each participant the opportunity to develop in the best possible way based on their language level. The advantageous group size enables the teacher to respond to each participant individually.
The main focus will be the oral conversation and there will be the opportunity to practice what you have learned and at the same time to experience the respective city. Full-day trips to an island or a visit to a museum can also be part of the program, such as cultural experiences.
Grammar exercises are part of the course and will be inserted into the timetable by the teacher.
Homework can be given and on the last day of the course there will be the opportunity to give a small presentation or lecture.
During the course, the teacher acts as a motivating force, contact person, companion, advisor, guide or translator and actively tries to encourage the participants to use the language. She has the opportunity to give direct feedback and to correct directly in a current language situation.
Participants are expected to embrace this motivation. Our teachers try to create a nice and instructive group dynamic in which all participants feel comfortable.
Classrooms and class times are planned based on the content requests of the participants.
The teacher organizes the course material in the form of copies against reimbursement of the copying costs.
Meals during the course are the responsibility of the participants. Often there will be a possibility to buy a sandwich or something similar during the day.
To compose good groups, it is important for us to know your language level. Please tell us when you contact us.
