Since 1961, our two-week immersion program has defined what Waldsee is all about. Villagers are introduced to a wide variety of language skills through interactive learning, language games, singing and real-life situational learning.
Recreational activities form a core element of the Waldsee experience. Villagers can choose from Schwimmen (swimming), Fußball (soccer), Tonarbeit (pottery), Malen (painting), Kanufahren (canoeing), Fechten (fencing), Bogenschießen (archery) and many more. Returning villagers can choose from a whole host of adventure programs, from environmental learning and radio to soccer and medieval theater.
At the root of all these opportunities is the mixture of learning and having fun in the outdoors. Where else can you take a sauna with twenty of your closest friends or learn your prepositions while on a ropes course? At Waldsee, German is fun. We provide a supportive atmosphere that can challenge any type of learner from a beginner to a near-native speaker to use their German, naturally and with confidence.
