Select : German / Berlin Teenager (2) / Summer City Programme
The course is academically demanding course and aims to stimulate student interest and keep the lessons dynamic. Optional social activities provide contrast and bring an additional element of fun to the overall programme.
The German language college staff are aware that the students are on holiday and will do all they can to help students enjoy their German experience, both in and outside the classroom.
Students live and study on site. The college offers great on site facilities including 40 spacious classrooms, a book store, a restaurant and cafeteria and a private garden for relaxing after classes. It is well located in Berlin (in the old Eastern Section) and the on site accommodation, makes it very popular year round, doubly so in the summer months ~ so please book early!.

Sunday to Sunday ~
The college offers residential accommodation, providing a self contained centre on site in Berlin (or in a hostel, just a 5/10 minute walk from the college), so that students can attend their classes and live on site (or be near by). If you wish to guarantee being on campus (not in the Hostel) you can do so, by paying an additional 70.00 EUR per person/per week.
Each room is a self contained studio apartment, shared with other teenage language students (3 to 5 students per apartment).
Meals: Half-board accommodation is included in the course fees. All meals can be taken at the college centre (budget EUR 49.00 for lunches on site).
Deposit: EUR 100.00 required on arrival. This is refunded at the end of the course or used to pay for any damages or to replace your key (if you lose it).
We suggest EUR 150.00 per week, to cover public transport and entrance fees, snacks etc
We recommend your passport & money are left with college staff at the office.
