The course was very interesting and Hans, the teacher was really very good. My level wasn't so high but he succeded in making me following the lessons.

The course was very lively and interactive. My teacher Hans was very professional - long years of experience showed that he "knew his job". The number of other students sharing the class was small and I regretted not having been able to have any of my co-students accompany me skiing in the afternoon.

Mrs. Oberhauser was a charming lady - the room was very pleasant and spacious, which I appreciated. However, since I had quite a small budget for meals, I would have appreciated to be able to use the kitchen to cook my own meals

This is the second year that I have been there and am writing to let you know that it is an excellent course and very student focussed. I have been on a number of German courses and find the Kitzbuhel course offered by Hans is by far the best. He has an excellent teaching technique and is prepared to spend a significant time socialising with students which really helps reinforce the language skills.

Loved the course! Hans and Doris created a friendly environment that allowed for intensive language learning and fun. I especially enjoyed the combination of classroom with outside program learning. This combination provided classroom structure for learning grammar and phonetics, along with local excursions for practice in speaking - as well as site seeing! Thank you Hans and Doris - I had a super time!!!

I stayed at the Hotel Garni Entstrasser, a short 5 minute walk from the school. Klaus, Annegret, and Bettina are wonderful people who made my 3 weeks stay at their lovely hotel a delight. Very friendly people who create a warm and cozy environment. My room had a balcony and of course, was surrounded by mountains - what a fabulous view! Nice selection for breakfast and very happy to have WiFi. Needless to say, it was hard to leave this wonderful hotel that was my home for 3 weeks.

Kitzbühel is a vacation delight! So much to do from hiking to sipping coffee at a Cafe. Very picturesque - a photographer's dream!

The course was excellent. The teacher (Hans) was extremely knowledgeable and very patient. I learned a lot and found the course extremely worthwhile.

My accommodation was in a great location, across the street from the school. The owners of the guesthouse were extremely friendly and each morning the lady owner would join us at the breakfast table for conversation in German. Much appreciated! The breakfast was also very good.

Helpful and, by all accounts, improved my confidence in entering conversations with people no end! Intensive without being onerous, with minimal homework forced upon you which was good. Had several opportunities to meet in afternoon/evening which was good if you were by your self, but equally gave you plenty of time to yourself if you were in a group. Very good experience that was well worth doing

The course was excellent. I learned so much in my time there. The teachers are extremely friendly and glad to help you whenever they can. The afternoon programs in the school were also very nice; skiing and hanging out in a local restaurant. Both of these afternoon times were not only fun but also another great opportunity to practice the language.

I had an apartment the whole time that was very clean. It wasn't too far from the school or the town, so that made getting around nice. It had a nice little kitchen so I could make some food for myself, rather than having to eat out all the time. The owner of the place was extremely helpful, she would do my laundry for me every week and take me back and forth to the train station.

I would strongly recommend this school. Its a great location, the town is very pretty. In winter there's never a dull moment with all the skiing. But aside from being fun, I learned a lot about the language. I came away being nearly fluent. This school is great for just a few weeks of vacation or an extended stay to really learn a lot

Wolfgang was an excellent tutor. He was laid-back but sussed all the time if anyone was not following and dealt with it in a very sensitive way. There was a good balance of grammar lectures and exercises and chat from the tutor about life in general. I had a large bedroom in a private house. It was well-equipped and had a balcony but was situated right on a busy road leading out of Kitzbuhel.

Tuition was very good. Friendly, helpful teachers. As a complete beginner I found that there is only a certain amount one can take in during one day and 2 hours of one-to-one tuition was a realistic maximum.

I learned a lot in just 3 weeks. The instruction included a lot of "every day smalltalk". So the common words and sentences became quickly known.

Austrian people are in common very friendly. Also my host and hostess. They liked to get to know all their guests, in german of course.
