Here's a really cool German language programme for adolescents with lots of cool options not far from the Swiss border. Located only a few minutes from the centre of Freiburg, you'll mix with other adolescents from all over Europe and the world. It will give you the chance to improve your German in a relaxed, friendly setting while exploring German culture. 

German Courses

After an initial level test you are placed in the class that is right for you.
German classes take place Monday-Friday 4x45 minute lessons (20 lessons per week).

The German courses are taught by qualified German teachers and will cover reading, writing, listening, speaking - grammar underpins all four skills. There's a level test every Friday :)
Don't worry, it's not learning German at school. It's far more interactive and fun.

Excursions
