Dialoge, Lindau
Duration: 3 weeks

First of all, I would like to thank the organisation that offers this destination for giving me the chance to experience one of the best trips of my life. Lindau not only is a gorgeous town with many attractions; it is also a place where people are really friendly. As regards the dialoge language school, I have only one word: wonderful. The teachers were brilliant, many gave fun and attractive classes and it is thanks to them that I made so much progress in German. The facilities were also first-class, offering many options. Concerning host families, mine was really nice to me and had kids of my age, whom I have no reason to complain about as they always kept me entertained. I only see one drawback: my stay had an end. After I returned home, I realised that there was so much to do in Lindau and that there was no place for boredom – and now that I’m back home, I’ve got nothing to do! That’s it, I hope many people will decide to go on such a trip, it’s really worth it!

Dialoge, Lindau
Duration: 12 weeks

Lindau is a small, peaceful and welcoming town with a beautiful view of Lake Constance. There are many things to do in its surroundings and it is very easy to travel with the train. The Dialoge school is great and it is located in a building belonging to the station, in the heart of the old town. It looks old from the outside but once you get inside, it’s very different. The teachers are great; they know how to motivate students. The courses are comprehensive and the German lessons are very fun. I met many people from all over the world. I got to know new cultures and my German skills significantly improved. As regards my host family, they were great. It was a wonderful adventure. I didn’t see time go by. But I’ll renew this experience in England very soon.

Dialoge, Lindau
Duration: 3 weeks

I really liked the Dialoge sprachinstitut. I was there for 3 weeks and the course really helped me with my German. In the residence, we all spoke German together and that was also helpful. I liked the teachers, they can explain everything very quickly and simply. I’ll probably be back very soon.

Host family
Staying with a host family offers you direct insight into the daily life of German families and culture. Beyond the social experience, it gives you the possibility to put into practice what you have learned in class in an authentic context. Sleeping in a single or twin room, you share breakfast and dinner with your hosts.

Europaplatz residence (from 18 years)
Located near the language school, the lake and the centre of Lindau, the school's residence offers a pleasant and safe environment. Choose a single or twin room (both have in-room sinks) with shared facilities including bathrooms, a kitchen and dining room, a bar, lounge area and games room. Free Wi-Fi and bed linen are provided but you should bring your own bath towel. During summer, the terrace is a great place to relax and sunbathe or meet up with other international students at the bar. A flat-screen TV with cable channels and a washing machine and dryer are also available.
Please note that during the high season, some students may be accommodated in another residence with the same conditions.

You can enjoy a superb range of sporting activities organised by the school, including tennis, sailing, horse riding, golf, bike riding and much more. In the evenings, BBQ's by the lake, movie screenings and disco nights are perfect for practising your German while having fun. Excursions include trips to Mainau island and Meersburg, summer sledding in Austria, walks through the Rappenlochschlucht gorge and a whole host of cool things in the surrounding region.
