>> Language school in Salzburg
Our language school in Salzburg was established in 1990. The school building is located in the city centre of the World Heritage city of Salzburg.
All teachers are native speakers. We guarantee active speaking from the first lesson in form of question and answer games, discussions, role plays. Gesture and facial expression as well as the effective use of media advance the improvement of the language knowledge ready-to-use. Written exercises and authentic materials (videos, CDs) help to develop and use the newly found language skills. Regular tests reveal difficulties and misunderstandings and give the opportunity to recognize and clarify them early.
>> Salzburg - The city
Salzburg is located in the heart of Europe and easily accessible by all means of transport. The city offers a diversity equalled by very few other cities in the world.
The city is known around the world as a centre of art and culture and has much more to offer than just the summer and Easter festival, Whitsun concerts, theatre productions, and museum exhibitions. Whether you love arts, music, delicious food, or parties, or if you are just looking for some rest and relaxation, you will simply love Salzburg, the city of variety. You can stroll leisurely through the narrow streets and alleys of this baroque city. Countless stores invite you to do some shopping. And from the terraces of the world-famous coffee-houses you can enjoy the view of beautiful architecture in the historical city centre with a delicious piece of cake.

>> Course levels
Our language school in Salzburg offers all course levels: starting with a total beginner course and ending with the perfection level. The indications of level of all our courses (a1 to c2) are oriented at the European frame of reference. This way, after the level homogeneous learn groups can be built so that nobody gets bored or feels overchallenged. The level test takes place on the first day of class. We are going to discuss the results with you. In general, it is possible to change the course later. If required, intermediate groups can be built.

Our German courses in Salzburg are communicative, effective, and open for your special interests and wishes. Qualified and experienced teachers, very small groups, and a pleasant learning atmosphere guarantee you optimal learning results.
This is what our students say about us:
The lessons were fun and very relevant for the needs of day to day life. In fact I enjoyed it so much that after the initial 4 week course I booked a further two week course. I am now able to speak a fairly good German and can handle a conversation. My advice to anyone deciding to come to Salzburg is to be prepared to stay longer than what is originally planned, since you won’t want to leave. (Isabelle, Spain)

>> Accommodation & Arrival
Arrival: Sunday before the course starts
Departure: Saturday after the end of the course
Host families: You live together with your host family in their home. Host families can be childless couples, parents with schoolchildren, or older people whose grown-up children have already left home. As a guest in a family our students have the best chances to practise the German language in their free time. To guarantee this, there are never two persons of the same mother tongue in the same family (unless expressly requested by partners/friends).
Youth hostels and guest-houses
