Summer courses in Cologne
Do you think it lasts long until you can start speaking German? We promise you, it will definitely take less time than to build the Cologne Cathedral! Germany’s oldest city, towered over by the spires of its world-famous cathedral offers many cultural and historical treasures from Roman and medieval times, well-known museums and an active art scene. Modern Cologne also has a leading position in media production. Life in the city is uncomplicated and vivacious with many pubs, cafés and restaurants. Located at the river Rhine, Cologne is surrounded by mountains and idyllic valleys with castles, monasteries and choir ruins. And even the famous Loreley is just around the corner.
Listening, speaking and reading within a playful, creative context form the core of the tuition that is much practice-oriented. Tuition always takes place in the mornings. Courses are supplemented by afternoon excursions that are carefully prepared by the teaching staff. On free afternoons you will have an opportunity to discover the German culture with your new friends, have fun and put into practice the newly acquired knowledge.
