German for Working Professionals
You have moved to a German speaking country to live and work. Maybe English is the declared lingua franca at your company, which is certainly an advantage for you. In spite of this, you have noticed that a lack of at least basic German language skills is a definite disadvantage. You would like to be able to understand the many emails written in German; or meeting conversations that make you feel like an outsider. You may need to communicate with Kindergarten teachers, or your local butcher. Or, you may even be highly motivated to learn to read scientific journals or business newspapers. If this is the case, we offer German training designed with your special needs in mind.
Culture & Language Immersion
Homestay means living with a German family alongside your German language instruction. More than just a B&B, you will enjoy the full comforts of German home life while perfecting your language skills.
As guest, you will stay in a comfortable bedroom with your own private bathroom. The amenities include TV, desk, WiFi and a view to the Alps. The classroom is only steps away from your room which opens to a terrace and garden complete with a pond full of fish.
The all-inclusive price covers overnight stay, use of the classroom, coffee, tea, soft drinks and snacks, welcome cocktails on arrival, 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches, and 3 evening meals. In addition you will have access to a bicycle, DVD and book library, TV and WiFi.
