In addition to our German programme, we offer various spare time activities, designed both to establish contact between our students and Austrians and to give an insight into Austrian culture and history. We organise guided city tours to some of Vienna's less well known sights where the background of historical events and the spirit of the past epochs becomes clear.
Today's life is demonstrated during factory visits and environmental walks. Depending on the season, we organise hiking tours, bicycle tours and boat trips, where the students see the surrounding province of Vienna and where they may practise their German in a relaxed atmosphere.
Vienna is, of course, a city of music offering something for everyone: ballet, opera, jazz; classical and church music.
Our danse parties or barbecues are very popular among the students. All these activities are optional but students who participate benefit significantly.
Our team of qualified, experienced Austrian teachers use a well_balanced method which activates students communication skills in a very short time. The lessons are held only in German with the aim of helping students understand and participate as quickly as possible in the language being spoken around them.
Lessons are interactive with rôle-plays, dialogues, pair-work, group-work and discussions, all helping to expand vocabulary and master German structures. Grammar is only taught as a basis for communication. Students take regular tests and undertake assignments in order to re-inforce their work and acquisition of German. Pronunciation exercises, specially designed for students of the same mother-tongue, complete the programme.
Students learn German in a professional but relaxed atmosphere with the constant help, attention and support of the teachers. Austrian culture, past and present, is also an integral and extremely interesting part of the programme, enabling students to acquire cultural knowledge as well as the German language.
