Germany | Hamburg | A Level German Revision

A Level German Revision

These courses are available throughout the year starting every Monday. Students can travel for a week, two weeks or longer. We are able to tailor packages to suit your requirements and the time you have available.

Location

Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and well known for its many interesting sights, such as the harbour and the Elbphilharmonie. Our German language school in Hamburg is located in the Esplanadebau, a historic Art Deco office building right in the city centre. From here you are only a few steps from the Alster River and the Jungfernstieg promenade.

The modern, well-equipped school is designed to give students the very best environment within which to work. With 15 classrooms, study centre, multi media room, internet cafe, student lounge and spacious terrace you will be extremely well catered for in the heart of the city. 

Language Course

The course concentrates on learning and actively using the language – this way the tuition is very much practice oriented. During the morning you will participate in group sessions with other students of a similar German level to you, with lessons focussing on improving all aspects of the German language. You will then have an additional 5 individual classes throughout the week, the content of which will be decided by you in advance, as you will be asked what you would like to cover with your tutor during these sessions, be it grammar, a specific thematic topic, conversation or exam practice, etc. Dependant on your level, during busy periods, you will either have classes in the mornings or the afternoons.
 
This course is ideal for A Level students as it develops confidence, fluency and vocabulary. It is intended to support students in preparation for exams but also gernerally improve their German skills. 
 

Optional Social and Cultural Programme

The school offers a range of social and cultural activities including: guided walking tour, visiting the city's main attractions, attending local festivals and weekend excursions to nearby towns and places of cultural interest.

Accommodation

Please note accommodation is only available for students over 18 years old.

For students under the age of 18 we offer summer camps with accommodation or we advise you to consider arranging private accommodation. Some students travel with family.

Host Family

For students wanting to completely immerse themselves in the German language and culture we recommend that you stay with one of our carefully selected German host families. They will not only introduce you to the German way of life and help you practise the German language but will also give you a taste of local and delicious regional specialities. The host families are situated near to the school in the city centre within easy reach of the school by foot or U-bahn / S-bahn (underground/train).

Host Family accommodation includes half-board catering (breakfast & evening meal) from the Sunday before your course starts to the Saturday after it finishes.

Subject to availability, an extra day on one side of your trip may be available on request to facilitate flight dates. A surcharge is payable for any extra nights.

You can read more about what it means to stay with a host family in our Host Family Guide.
