German Language Programmes for school classes and groups
We offer special programmes for school groups visiting Germany from other countries (14-18 years old) with accompanying staff or teachers. In addition to lessons in the morning , an interesting program professionally taken care of by our pedagogic staff, the programme includes activities, which can include day trips.
School groups must consist of a minimum of 12 students.
ADK offers pupils the chance to attend a language course with their classes and teachers.
We have many years of experience in organising stays and trips for school groups and other groups. We offer an immersive experience of the language, in the form of small projects (e.g. interviews, creating a school paper, scavenger hunts) in an authentic environment, which helps give young people confidence communicating successfully in a foreign language, and can motivate students to continue learning German when they return home.
When young people have a chance to try using the language they've learned in the classroom back home in everyday situations, without worrying about exams or grades, it helps motivate them, and fosters a real interest in the language and culture. In the lessons, young people play games, listen to contemporary German pop music, and get some time outside the classroom working on short activities like interviews.
If you are interested, talk to our teachers about the lessons or sit in one of our classes.
The best way to learn German is to spend time in Germany and learn the language in a way that's interesting and motivates you to learn. The lessons are adapted to fit to the language level of the group, and we only speak German in the classroom, giving learners the chance to make significant progress in just a short time.
In order for your German language course to be a success, you have to be placed in a group with other students who have the same level of German as you. This is why we give all new students a placement test before they arrive. Before courses start, we'll email you a placement test. On the first day of course, you will be placed into the right level, based your test results.
You can book a course for one or more weeks throughout the year. We are happy to answer any questions you have about the course.

Ever since its founding by the Roman Emperor Augustus, Augsburg has been an important trading city. In the fourteenth century, the rich and influential Fugger and Welser families turned Augsburg into a city of international importance, a city of emperors, the home and workplace of many famous artists, sculptors and composers. Augsburg has been shaped by its 2000 year history, and offers an array of architectural styles, from many historical periods.
Today Augsburg is, as the third largest city in Bavaria with 275,000 inhabitants. It is a university city, the seat of the Swabian government, an important economic location for many international companies as well as a city popular with young people.
The school is situated right in the city centre, about 2 minutes walk from the main train station and Königsplatz.
Full board accommodation (with packed lunch for lunch; starting with dinner on your day of arrival, ending with a packed lunch on your day of departure) in carefully chosen host families in double-bed or single rooms.
