This is your chance to study at a regular German High School (14 - 18 year olds). It can be a great way for students to improve their German, but remember, this is first and foremost a German High School programme and not a language programme, so you do have to have a decent German level to participate.

- You'll follow the normal German course syllabus for your age and class (depending on the state) and (*generally) live with a German family selected by the school. (*Private boarding school also available).
