The students

Minimum age
18 years

Private courses are ideal to achieve specific objectives. They are particularly suitable for professionals who need to acquire language skills specific to their fields of activity, for students who wish to prepare for an examination, and for anyone wishing to broaden their knowledge of German to meet their specific needs. In your teacher’s home, you will benefit from unique learning conditions. For instance, discussions, over meals or at other times, and visits will be conducted exclusively in the target language. Living with your teacher implies that every single moment will be put to good use to reach your objectives, not only during the lessons, but also whenever you are with your teacher during the day. You will experience full immersion, without a chance to speak in your mother tongue. Your teacher will be there to help you with your difficulties, at your own pace, since you will be his one and only student (unless you choose the programme for two students: see options).

In the teacher's home
Living in the teacher's home allows you to practise the language in first class conditions. Since compatibility is very important for guaranteeing the success of the course, you will be asked to fill in a questionnaire concerning your preferences, interests and possible requirements to enable us to find the ideal teacher. You will have your own private room with the “one-to-one” option and share a twin room if you choose the “one-to-two” option. Private bathrooms are available on request and at a charge.

Use your free time to explore German culture on your own or with your private teacher. Depending on your wishes, your teacher may offer you activities centred around your personal interests, including sports, cultural visits or excursions in the area. This is a great chance to learn more about the country you’re visiting while improving your German skills.
