J'ai passé 6 semaines magnifiques. Je me sentais très bien dans cette ville. Beaucoup d'étudiants, donc toujours quelque chose à faire. Et attentifs aussi à notre environnement, très écologique. Des professeurs très attentifs et très pédagogique. J'ai pu apprendre très vite l'Allemand. Beaucoup de plaisir à suivre les cours.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Dès le premier jour que je suis arrivée, j'ai appris énormément de jour en jour. Puis au bout de 3 semaines, ça allait très bien, je comprenais tout et j'arriver à tenir une conversation. »
School highlights
« Les professeurs étaient géniaux! Il n'y avait pas de distance entre eux et leurs élèves. Ensuite la pédagogie est très différente qu'en France, ce qui m'a plu. »
Top tips
« Faire une ballade sur le Schlossberg, le plus haut sommet de la ville. D'ou on peut voir une panorama magnifique de la ville. Et biensur, découvrir la vie nocturne avec tous les étudiants allemands.Le Markthalle est un endroit très sympathique pour manger avec des amis. »

Do you think you've made progress?
« Oui je pense avoir fait des progrès d'une part dans le fait de m'exprimer en allemand au contact de la population allemande et des autres étudiants mais aussi d'une façon générale pour la lecture, le vocabulaire et certains points de grammaire. A la fin de mon séjour je pouvais lire des textes assez élaborés. »

Testimonials

David Verdan
David Verdan
Sprachschule zum Ehrstein, Freiburg
Duration: 6 weeks

I was slightly apprehensive about my language study stay as I was obliged to travel abroad for my studies. At the start, it wasn't easy, but after a small amount of time, I felt like at home, and currently, I even prefer Freiburg to my city which is Lausanne! The classes are very good, I made many friends and I saw and did very interesting things, things that I didn't do at home. There are many activities and exciting things to do which allowed me to speak a lot and practise my speaking in a friendly and festive atmosphere. I really like the school, the teachers and this familial atmosphere which prevails there. My stay in Freiburg not only improved my langauge skills, but also prompted me to take a sabbatical year following my studies and to travel abroad to work and learn languages.

Host family
In order to speak the German that you will have learned during your classes, there's nothing better than total immersion. For this reason, staying with a host family represents the best way to make rapid progress.
Situated between 15 and 25 minutes away from the school (by tram or by bus), the families offer you a single room and you will share the rest of the common areas of the house with the members of the family. You will have the choice between having breakfast only, half board or full board provided, according to your needs.

Residence (from 18 years)
The residence is located in a building with 8 storeys only 20-25 minutes by tram away from the city centre. It welcomes international students as well as German university students, which favours the meeting of students and practising the language. Each student has a single room with a private bathroom and can use the common equipped kitchen available on each floor.
Check-in time: Sundays at 6 pm.

Shared apartment (from 18 years)
You will stay in a single, furnished room, and live with either a person living on his/her own, with a couple or with other students (in the latter case, there is limited availability and the option is mostly available during holiday periods). You will share the bathroom and kitchen with your flatmates. Price on request.

Our partner school also offers the possibility of staying in a room in a private accommodation. You will stay in a single, furnished room, and live with either a person living on his/her own, with a couple or with other students (in the latter case, there is limited availability and the option is mostly available during holiday periods). You will share the bathroom and kitchen with your flatmates.

The school proposes numerous activities and outings in order that the students may discover Freiburg, of course, but also its surroundings. You will discover the historical heritage of Freiburg and the magnificent region of the Black Forest. The city also distinguishes itself by the numerous cultural events that take place throughout the year. An excursion to « Europa Park » is also planned. And to let off steam, there are plenty of sports for you to enjoy, including football, volleyball, rollerblading in summer, taboganning, ice-skating and ski in winter. In addition, the city has excellent cycle tracks. The school also organises cinema evenings and "international cuisine" as well as barbecues during the summer.
