What is a German Language Study school trip?
These totally immersive German school trips can be arranged in Berlin and Cologne, and involve students attending German language lessons at one of our partner language schools, where they will be taught by fully-qualified native German speakers.
As lessons will be in closed groups, the content can be tailored to meet your specific learning objectives, and you’ll be able to liaise directly with the teacher at the language school to discuss this in advance of your trip.
Your group will usually have lessons in the afternoons, with cultural activities offered in the mornings. These activities will not only help your students your students become more familiar with the German culture; they will also provide them with the opportunity to road test their language skills with native speakers in everyday situations.
As the lessons are in closed groups and are tailored to your curriculum and learning requirements, these trips are suitable for all year groups, but tend to be most popular with groups preparing for their GCSE or A-Level exams. That’s because these trips offer a really targeted boost to your students’ language skills that sets them up perfectly for the exams.
German Language Study school trips to Germany
We offer German Language Study school trips in Berlin and Cologne.
Berlin is always a huge favourite among our school groups for German Language Study school trips, because it’s such a fun, exciting city with so much to explore whether you’re into art, history or just want a great overview of what Germany is all about.
In the mornings, your students will be able to take part in sightseeing or cultural activities, where they’ll be encouraged to use their German as much as possible.
They’ll then head over to our partner language school for lessons in the afternoon.
And being in an exciting city like Berlin, there’s plenty to do in the evenings, from catching a German film at the cinema to taking a trip to the top of the TV Tower for incredible views across the city!
Alternatively, why not visit Cologne, the capital of the Rhineland? This city has over 2,000 years of history to explore and must-sees include the Roman-Germanic Museum and the iconic cathedral. There are also some great visits for chocoholics and sports fans too! You can also add in a visit to Phantasialand, one of Europe’s top theme parks!
Why arrange a German Language Study school trip?
Immerse them in German
There is no better way to learn a language than totally immersing yourself in it.
Being surrounded by the German language will give your students the encouragement they need to start using their German on an everyday basis, to speak with locals, navigate the city and enjoy deeper cultural experiences.
Lessons at the language school will be tailored to your specific curriculum and learning objectives. During the mornings, when students are enjoying their cultural or sightseeing activities, they’ll be able to put what they’ve learnt in their lessons into practise.
They’ll surprise themselves with how quickly they relax into it and enjoy being immersed in the German language. And every time they have an interaction with a German person and are able to make themselves understood, their confidence will improve hugely.
Your students will return home having honed the skills you wanted them to focus on during the trip, and with a greater confidence in their German language skills. And this will leave them much better prepared to perform well in their exams!
Your students will love the experience of immersing themselves in the German language and using their skills to access unforgettable cultural experiences. Your German Language Study school trip is certain to spark a real passion for German, and languages in general, in your students.
They’ll gain a deeper understanding of the benefits of being able to speak a foreign language, as well as how much fun it can be!
You’ll also inspire in them a love of travel and exploring other cultures on a deeper level, which will set them up to want to continue to broaden their horizons and learn more about other countries and cultures. And what an exceptional gift to give those young people!
