German Study Abroad Programs

Our German study abroad program allows you to be immersed in the language and the culture 24 hours a day. It is an entirely different experience than taking a German class at home. In fact, if you have studied German before, you may expect to understand more than you will when you first arrive in Germany. It takes some time to get used to native speakers. Your German studies will be your top priority during your trip, and our very experienced team of teachers will help you reach your language goals. Your time in Germany will also be filled with cultural discovery and personal growth. Aside from all the academic advantages, these experiences are the true gift of our German study abroad program.
