Aside from language classes, you will experience the cuisine and cultures of various German-speaking countries, discuss cultural topics, participate in crafts or try your hand at cooking popular dishes. You’ll be able to have fun while focusing on your language learning, all in the beautiful natural surroundings of Waldsee.

This experience is sure to be enjoyable and rewarding — whether you're beginning your German language journey or you're a more experienced speaker!

The Adult Week is tailored to the way adults learn language and include cultural immersion activities and opportunities to engage on contemporary issues, with maximum opportunities to use your language as you are learning it — all in a supportive, educationally rich atmosphere. Language sessions are friendly, fun, accessible and practical.
