Description/content

Learn German in one of the most exciting cultural cities in Germany and Europe!

In three weeks, you will effectively learn the many facets of the German language together with participants from all over the world. Whether you are a beginner, advanced, or almost a native speaker – we offer the right language level for everyone. The first week of the course will take place online.

In our intensive course, you will learn not only speaking, comprehension, and grammar but also many exciting and amusing things about Germany and German culture. Come along on this voyage of discovery: from the legacy of Schiller, Goethe, Wieland, and the Bauhaus, you will learn the German language in an active and hands-on way! Free visits to exciting cultural sites such as the Goethe House, the City Palace, or the brand-new Bauhaus Museum are part of the course programme.

Even outside of the course, you can fully immerse yourself in the German language and exchange ideas with your fellow students. Our varied social programme offers many opportunities, which vary from chats during our game nights, visits to the cinema to improve your listening comprehension, and opportunities to expand your vocabulary by discussing exciting ingredients at the international dinner to a karaoke evening during which the bravest amongst you can sing their favourite songs. On the weekends, you can also book excursions to various nearby cities, such as Dessau, Leipzig, or Erfurt. There will also be social events accompanying the online sessions.

Immerse yourself in the German language and culture – the Bauhaus Summer School and Weimar are looking forward to seeing you!
