Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

Soon it will be time once again to experience Germany in the summer – to get to know the coun­try, the people and life in a Ger­man host family. Now with Pots­dam, this summer there is one more des­ti­na­tion for our juniors to choose from. With the world fa­mous Sans­souci Castle, the New Palace and the Babels­berg Film Park, in which in­ter­na­tio­nal block­bus­ters have been fil­med, Pots­dam has much to offer. And the bust­ling city of Ber­lin is only a short 40-minute train ride away. With all this, it is never boring in Pots­dam!

Junior homestay course in Potsdam The modern instructional facilities offer ideal con­ditions for effective learn­ing. In add­i­tion, our ex­perienced teach­ing staff brings lessons to life with many con­tem­po­ra­ry topics. On four of the after­noons after Ger­man class, our par­ticipants, to­get­her with their new friends from around the world, can take part in adven­tur­ous field trips around the area, dis­cover local museums, play beach volley­ball or simply let off steam at the swim­ming pool.

During the period between June and August, in addition to Potsdam, we offer our sum­mer cour­ses for ju­niors with host family ac­com­mo­dation at five other lo­ca­tions. There is one in Aschaf­fen­burg, for ins­tance, which is a city close to Frank­furt am Main with a mag­ni­fi­cent re­nais­sance castle. Sum­mer courses also take place in the Hessian ca­pi­tal of Wie­sbaden, in the Ba­va­rian city of Augs­burg, as well as in his­to­ric Nu­rem­berg. And don’t forget, our sum­mer school for youth in the Rhen­ish metro­po­lis of Cologne.

Hotel A&O Frankfurt

Effective imme­di­ate­ly we will be able to of­fer course par­tic­i­pants Stan­dard Ho­tel ac­com­mo­da­tions at our Frank­furt lo­ca­tion. The new fa­cil­i­ty of our ho­tel part­ner A&O has just been com­ple­ted. From there, you can reach the did deutsch-ins­ti­tut Frank­furt with a short 20-mi­nute ride on the S-Bahn (sub­way, tram). It is also quick and easy to get to the cen­ter of the ci­ty from the hotel. One special fea­ture of this new ho­tel is the so-called SkyBar on its most upper level, where you can en­joy an un­for­gett­able view over the breath­tak­ing sky­line of the Main river metro­po­lis.

Why Hamburg?

Fanny from France: “I think I have un­der­stood the Ger­man way of liv­ing, which will help me a lot in my stu­dies. I am glad to be able to tell every­one that Ger­ma­ny is far away from all the World War II stereo­types we un­for­tu­nate­ly usu­ally think of. I felt wel­comed and se­cure here. I’ll bring home a lot of pic­tures, but the best sou­ven­irs that I'll take back home with me will be the me­mo­ry of all the people that I’ve met and the amaz­ing in­ter­cul­tur­al ex­chan­ge that has ta­ken place here. My stay here has open­ed my eyes to many things and made me want to come back here one day!” Read more
