This is intensive enough to ensure that you make rapid progress with your German, but still leaves you with enough free time to explore Kitzbuhel, go skiing/snowboarding, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful Alpine scenery and lifestyle.

The course tutor was outstanding - patient, well prepared and skilled at simplifying and building on German's complicated grammar. The small classes were fun and his amusing stories (and impression of a bear) were particularly memorable!
The course was very well run and also enjoyable. Every tutor was very patient and clear in their teaching. The accommodation was great, the whole family were very friendly and helpful.
It was a really helpful course and I learned a lot, but first of all it was great fun.
The teacher was very patient and helpful. I have learned a lot and hope to practice what I have now learned.
I enjoyed the language course and it has certainly given me more confidence in my spoken German. There was no other student at my level in the school so the first week I was given the choice of joining a lower group or being on my own.
The course went well with a great deal of help from the very friendly people at the centre. The only problem was it was too short for me, and i will be returning in the spring.
