Year-round German course for Teenagers in Augsburg, Germany


The university city of Augsburg is located in the southwest of Bavaria and is one of the oldest cities in Germany! Aside from its lively student atmosphere, the city is known for being a centre for great businesses and for its fantastic leisure facilities as well, meaning that there is a good balance between work and play! Augsburg is also known amongst tourists and visiting students for being an extremely safe city and is the perfect location for teenagers, who would like to improve their German, enjoy a relaxing holiday and simultaneously get a taste of German life and culture!

The school building is situated in the historic centre of Augsburg, just a few minutes’ walk from the central train station and close to many of the city's museums, parks, cinemas and cafés. There are 5 fully-equipped classrooms, with a further 3 classrooms in a nearby building during the summer, in addition to a computer room with free WiFi internet access. There is a student office open throughout the day for support and assistance, offering constant supervision to all young students.

Courses in Augsburg

Our young student German course in Augsburg offers a unique advantage: it is available year-round for students aged 14 to 17 years old who want to learn German in a fun and dynamic environment. Teenagers can participate in the Intensive (summer) course, but also have the opportunity to come to Augsburg during the winter months with the Intensive (winter) course, as well as in the autumn or spring with the Intensive (spring/autumn) German homestay programme.

During the summer, you can choose between two options for your German lessons: 20 or 24 lessons per week. Each German lesson is counted as 45 minutes of tuition where you will improve your German language through the primary skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. In the winter, spring, and autumn the 20 lesson per week course is not available so you will have to choose 24 lessons per week.

In both summer and winter, you’ll typically find an average of 10-12 students per class, with a maximum of 15 students. In contrast, during the Spring and Autumn seasons, class sizes are smaller, usually around 4-5 students per class.

The Intensive 20 course runs from Monday to Friday in the mornings, starting between 8:30 am and 9:00 am and ending around 12:30 pm, with a short break in between. The Intensive 24 Course also takes place from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm on two afternoons per week. Students aged 14-17 years are required to have some prior knowledge of the German language at the A1 elementary level to book this course. Our classes are specifically designed with teenagers in mind, and our fully qualified native teachers aim to provide a complete cultural immersion experience in Augsburg.

Each course includes a minimum of 2 activities every week (4 activities per week in the summer and 3 in the winter) and a full-day excursion every Saturday. Additionally, students will receive full-board homestay accommodation as part of the programme.


Our young adults stay with native German host families, in shared rooms, on a full-board basis. A single room can be requested for an additional fee. The hosts are carefully chosen by the school's Accommodation Officer for the standard of the facilities offered. They are experienced and committed to providing our international Young Students with a welcoming and friendly home-away-from-home. The school guarantees that students will not have to travel more than 45 minutes in total, to reach the school from their accommodation and a local transportation card, for the buses and trains, is included in the programme fees.

By staying with a host family, you will have the chance to immerse yourself in everyday life and culture in Augsburg, to meet the native people and have a daily opportunity to practise your German outside of the classroom!


A large team of experienced teachers will help make your stay in Augsburg as enjoyable as possible. The cultural activities and visits to local places of interest are all led and fully-supervised by an experienced member of school staff, including on Saturdays, when there is full-day excursion. In the evenings students will often have free time to spend with their host families, or they can go out to meet friends from their language course, provided that they confirm to their hosts where they will be and when they expect to return.


The year-round course in Augsburg offers teenagers a fantastic location in which to study German, surrounded by nature, history and small-town charm. Life is Augsburg is more relaxed and less hectic than in the bigger city of Munich, for example, which is only 30 minutes away by train!

In Augsburg you will find students gathered in the parks, locals sitting around in the cafés and many people simply enjoying the architecture and history of the city. The German language programme for teenagers includes a weekly supervised activities programme, with a minimum of 2 activities per week in the wintertime, 3 during the spring or autumn months and a minimum of 4 weekly activities in the summertime.

The programme includes, for example, a guided tour of the historic town centre, a visit to the Olympic park, swimming in the lake or in the local swimming pool, evenings in a local bar or café terrace, visits to the Allgau Skyline Park, bowling, picnics, pizza parties and trips to the botanical gardens. Full-day excursions take place each Saturday to Munich (visiting the English Gardens and the BMW World), to Nuremberg to visit the Kaiserburg and the smallest science centre of the world, or to the famous Swan Lake Castle of Neuschwanstein!


This programme is ideal for teenagers aged 14-17 years, who are looking for a high quality German language course with students of a similar age, in a safe and charming location.
