A Dream Come True!
Hi! My name is Sophie, I´m 20 years old and I come from Sweden. Here I am, second from right, along with some of my new friends.
I have during the last three months been studying German on the little island in the south of Germany, called Lindau. I decided to take a year of from my school in Sweden because I wanted to do something else, something fun, interesting but also something that would be educational.
Good course. Excellent teachers and friendly staff. Wish I had signed up for 6 months! I would certainly recommend it to others.
Friendly teachers and very well suited to students' level and needs. Very open and lively atmosphere in classes. Many possibilities for afternoon activities and excursions.
The style of the lessons was perfect; it consisted more of discussions and engaging activities which imitated more realistic situations. The teacher was also excellent.
The teachers were lovely and always explained everything in such a clear manner. Our room was absolutely huge - it was great.
The course was good and the staff were nice and friendly.
The course was good and the school was well organised and the staff helpful and friendly.
The value of an opportunity to learn a language in the country in which it is spoken is inestimable. The language school in Lindau has just the right balance between emphasis on academic achievement and an enjoyable learning environment.
