German Summer Holiday Course

for Teens between 15 and 17 years

Would you like to improve your language skills and have fun together with young people from all over the world? Then you've come to the right place!

German lessons in international groups

Our experienced instructors create lively lessons in international groups and provide regular feedback on learning process. You attend our Intensive Course together with participants of the same age and adults from all over the world. Placement in the appropriate course level is based on an online test and a personal interview.


Leisure program with action and fun

Our attractive summer program invites you to do everything that is fun outside: swimming, pedal boat rides or stand-up paddling, discovery tours by bicycles, or enjoy the sun on the lake while playing beach volleyball. When the weather does not play along, indoor activities are on the program: bowling, cinema or cooking.


Which accommodation is the right one for me?

Carl Duisberg Residence

You can choose between single and twin rooms in our residence. Participants share the bathroom and kitchen with other course participants from all over the world. This type of accommodation is suitable for participants from 16 years on who are already a little more independent, as 24-hour supervision is not available. However, attendance is monitored every evening. Our residence manager and our tutors live on the premises. Breakfast is provided in the residence, lunch and dinner in our partner restaurants.


Host Family Accommodation

Our open-minded host families have plenty of experience in accommodating and supervising young guests from all over the world. Living together with your hosts gives you the unique opportunity to experience everyday life in Germany and to practice your German skills. Breakfast and dinner are taken in the host family, lunch in our partner restaurants. We strongly recommend accommodation with a host family for those under the age of 16.
