Zur Schule in Deutschland

"The Real Thing"

The Irish student is individually integrated into a regular secondary school, among German students, and is taught all subjects through German. The German curriculum offers a wide range of subjects which vary from one school to another. The minimum stay is a German school term, with the option of extending it for additional terms, up to the full academic year.

Irish students can be reassured that their starting level in German is not critical, as making friends soon helps overcome anxiety. To gain fluency, residing in a country does not suffice. Only a studious approach with substantial preparation and consistent support will make the difference. Progress in fluency is guaranteed by the placement of only one Irish student of our group in each (mainly private) school, with extensive preparation and follow-up.

  • An initial test helps determine the German school year and evaluate personal needs.
  • A briefing alleviates every parents concerns re-supervision, accommmodation, etc.
  • An induction Course, held before departure, provides a head-start in elocution and communication skills.
  • A local contact, accessible to the Irish students, as well as their parents, monitors well-being, progress and integration.

A Natural Environment

Schools are located around Munich. Accommodation is in families vetted by the school. This tailor-made type of placement, alongside students from the school, offers every advantage of an exchange, without any of the inconvenience.

The Living Language Safety Net

  • Tailor made Individual Academic Placement
  • German Schools providing care and ethos
  • At the Home of a German student (not an exchange)
  • Assessment & Preparation
  • Weekly Tuition and Support
  • Supervised airports collections & transfers

This individual placement dramatically improves the student’s fluency and becomes a bonus for oral and written exams and for life. Although a daunting experience at the start, our Irish students, with the preparation and full support of our local staff, enjoy their time in Germany, mature a lot and are upgraded in their German classes on returning to Ireland.
