What’s the best way to get your German students talking? A school trip to Germany, of course!

A German school trip is the perfect way to encourage your students to develop a passion for the language. They will love using German to explore the country and learn about its culture and history. And, of course, by doing so, they are certain to improve both their language skills and their confidence.

All our German school trips are completely tailor made to suit your specific requirements and learning objectives but do tend to fall into one of two categories – German Language Culture Tours or German Language Study Tours.

German Language Culture Tours

Our German Language Culture Tours combine cultural activities and sightseeing, providing an unforgettable introduction to Germany.

On one of these German school trips, your students will have plenty of opportunity to practise speaking German with native speakers on an everyday basis. They’ll also have the unforgettable experience of using their language skills to explore the local culture.

Your students will remember these experiences for the rest of their lives. It could even be the start of a lifelong passion for Germany and its language and culture, or even languages in general.

These experiences will also greatly improve their confidence in their language skills. Using German and being understood by native speakers will encourage them in their studies and help them to realise just how advantageous speaking another language can be.

We offer German Language Culture Tours in a great variety of destinations around Germany. You could choose to visit a buzzing, dynamic city, like Berlin, Munich or Cologne, or you could choose a quieter destination such as the Rhineland or the Black Forest, where your students can experience a more ‘traditional’ Germany.

German Language Study Tours

Our German Language Study Tours also include cultural activities, but with additional German lessons at a specialist language school. These tours are most popular with groups preparing for exams, but they’re also a great option for any group who wants to spend some of their time in Germany improving their level.

If you do choose to add language lessons, you’ll be able to discuss these with the fully-qualified, native German-speaking teacher ahead of your trip, to ensure your students make as much progress as possible.

We offer this type of trip in the exciting cities of Berlin and Cologne, where your students will have plenty of fantastic opportunities to put what they’ve learnt into practice during cultural activities and sightseeing tours.

Why arrange a German school trip?

Get them talking!

We were founded by a former MFL teacher and many of us are linguists, so we know that the best way to get your students speaking German is by taking them to Germany, immersing them in German and encouraging them to speak German with native speakers on an everyday basis!

We’ll work closely with you to design a school trip that’s right for your and your students and, most importantly, gets them speaking German.

Immerse them in German culture

Your students will love the experience of using their language skills to explore the local culture and it will really boost their confidence when they can make themselves understood by native speakers. Plus, this experience of being in Germany and using German will show them how a foreign language allows them to really experience and understand the local culture.

We offer a fantastic choice of destinations for school German trips. Berlin is always hugely popular, and Munich too offers all the cultural attractions you would expect from a major city. Both cities also have some great history-themed visits if you would like your trip to offer cross-curricular value.

We also offer quieter destinations, such as the Black Forest and the Rhineland, which both offer truly ‘authentic’ German experiences. Here, your students will experience more of the ‘traditional’ Germany, and they’ll find the pace of life is a little calmer too!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re struggling to decide on a destination. Our experienced Travel Advisers know Germany extremely well and will be very pleased to provide you with any further information or advice you require.

Enjoy the trip as much as your students

Originally founded by former teachers, and with many former teachers still among us, we understand the value of German school trips and how to make them successful.

Your trip will be completely tailor made, to ensure that it meets your specific requirements and learning objectives. And we’ll be on hand throughout the process to answer any questions you have.

In fact, we’ll be with you every step of the way, from now until you return home at the end of your trip. While abroad, you’ll be able to reach us with just one phone call, at any time of the day or night. And, with this comprehensive level of support while you’re away, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy experiencing German in action as much as your students.
