Junior Residence Vienna | Eurovision Song Contest | Destination Aschaffenburg | Students' Corner
Hello Friend Newsletter in EnglishNewsletter auf Deutsch

The Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test, the largest mu­sic com­pet­i­tion on the plan­et, will take place in Vi­enna from the 18th – 23rd of May. The motto this year is “Build­ing Bridges.” The nine shows in city hall, the Euro­vi­sion vil­lage at the Rath­aus­platz (City Hall Plaza), count­less oth­er events and, of course, Conchita Wurst, will keep those in the Aus­tri­an cap­it­al city of Vienna on the edge of their seats all week.

Eurovision Song Contest The Vi­en­nese are es­pe­cially proud to have landed the show in their city on this spe­cial an­niversary. The Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test is cel­eb­rat­ing its 60th birth­day this year. And to top it off, the fam­ous Ring­strasse (Ring Street) cel­eb­rates a birth­day in 2015 as well. The grand boulevard, which houses an abund­ance of statues and monu­ments, was christened by Em­per­or Franz Joseph 150 years ago.

For our in­ter­na­tion­al Residence Course par­ti­cipants there is cer­tainly much to cel­eb­rate in Vi­enna. In ad­di­tion to the spe­cial an­niversary events tak­ing place on the Ring­strasse, there are also the clas­sic­al sight­see­ing high­lights that make a vis­it to the Aus­tri­an cap­it­al city un­for­get­table: the Riesen­rad (gi­ant Fer­ris wheel), the Hof­burg (im­per­i­al palace), and of course, Schönbrunn Palace.

Our motto "learn­ing and liv­ing un­der one roof" de­scribes the Residence Course in Vi­enna quite well. Teen­age par­ti­cipants between the ages of 14 and 17 are ac­com­mod­ated in com­fort­able two- and four-bed rooms, which are loc­ated in the same build­ing as their Ger­man classes. All bed­rooms have private baths with shower and toi­let and res­id­ents en­joy wire­less ac­cess to the in­ter­net free of charge.

Junior Courses
in Aschaffenburg

For 40 years now our sum­mer courses for juniors have been held in Aschaf­fen­burg, a small city rich with his­tory in the very heart of Ger­many. From Frank­furt’s Rhein-Main air­port, you can reach the "Bav­ari­an Nice" as Aschaf­fen­burg is af­fec­tion­ately called be­cause of its mild cli­mate and Medi­ter­ranean flair, in 30 short minutes. Young­er in­ter­na­tion­al stu­dents between the ages of 12 and 16 live to­geth­er with a Ger­man host fam­ily, with whom they spend the Sum­mer in Aschaf­fen­burg. What could pos­sibly be more fun?

Students' Corner
Why Hamburg?

Rasmus from Den­mark: "My time in Ham­burg was a won­der­ful ex­per­i­ence. I had really nice class­mates from all parts of the world, the teach­ers were very ded­ic­ated and en­ga­ging and the per­son­nel in the main of­fice were al­ways will­ing to help! I found the In­de­pend­ent Learn­ing Cen­ter provided by did deutsch-in­sti­tut es­pe­cially use­ful. I highly re­com­mend Ham­burg as a good place to learn Ger­man: the people are open minded and friendly. And most im­port­antly, they speak “stand­ard” Ger­man (Hoch­deutsch), so they are easy to un­der­stand." Read more
