Learn German in Regensburg, Germany
Regensburg, lying on the River Danube, in the heart of Bavaria, is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. This ancient city, founded by the Romans, has a beautifully preserved historic centre, in which our school with on-site student residence, is located. The narrow cobbled streets and picturesque squares give the city a ‘homely’ feel. However, with over 20,000 German students attending Regensburg University, the city is also lively and youthful, whilst still being historic and cultural.

You can learn German on a ‘Standard’ German language course of 20 lessons/week, with a maximum of 12 students/class (average of 8 students/class). Or, if you want to learn as much German as possible in the time available to you, take the ‘Intensive’ German course, with 20 lessons/week, plus 5 or10 lessons a week in ‘Mini-Group’ (maximum of 4 students/class).
There is also a ‘Combined’ course, combining the ‘standard’ German course with 10 private lessons/week. In the private lessons, you can concentrate on the areas of German that interest you most – perhaps preparing for a specific exam, or learning the German that you need for your work.
Our school in Regensburg also organizes Work Experience of 8 or 12 weeks in local companies, following a German course in the school of a minimum of 4 weeks. Please contact us for details.
Our Regensburg school has a school residence in the school building, offering single and double rooms, most of them with private toilets/showers. There are also shared kitchens in the residence, for students who wish to cook for themselves. Alternatively, students can stay in a university student residence, also with single and double rooms and shared kitchens. Staying in the university residence is an excellent way to meet Germans, make friends and practise the German that you learn at the school.
Naturally, our school also offers accommodation in carefully selected German host families, with either self-catering and use of kitchen, bed and breakfast or 2 meals/day. Staying with a German host family is an excellent way to learn German, understand German culture and the German way of life.
Our Regensburg school provides an extensive cultural program, including a guided walk around Regensburg, German film evenings in the school, ‘pub evenings’ with students and teachers, cycling trips, visits to local companies, seminars on German history and literature, as well as and full-day excursions Munich and other locations in Bavaria.
