GERMAN FOR BEGINNERS 3 WEEKS
Course dates: 5 - 23 August 2019
Last date to register: 22nd of July
Location: Köln / Cologne
During the summer, you will learn the bases of the German language in Germany. You study 3-4 hours (á 60 minutes) a day and then get some assignments to do at home. The emphasis is on communication and the practical application of what you learn. As a part of the course, we organize an activity in Cologne and a couple of trips to some cities in the region (for example Bonn or Königswinter). German for beginners is a course that follows a pedagogy developed for the Swedish Folk Highschool (folkhögskola) – adult education centres – which puts the emphasis on the group dynamic, that is to talk, share, listen and learn from each other. In the course, we use the “reality” as a source for knowledge and work with a student-centred approach. There will be no final exam. To get a course certificate you need to have an attendance rate of 85 %. A large part of the course participants will be Swedish students who are reading a longer beginners course. The course participants organize their own accommodation.
Three weeks intensive tuition.
Ca. 20 study hours per week (tuition and activities), Monday to Friday.
The classes are usually during four days of the week and then we have an activity or trip.

Köln is a cultural hub with a wide range of museums, theatres, restaurants, cafes and an opera house, there is something for everyone. Köln is Germanys oldest city, founded by the Romans, at the same time is a very “young” city with a little bit more than 100 000 students, or 10% of the city’s total population. These students are divided between the city’s 24 universities and colleges. If you do not feel like paying a visit to the breath taking cathedral or the “Roman museum”, you can always stroll into the old town to visit one of the many cafes or restaurants, or just hang out next to the beautiful river Rhine. In your spare time you can visit Düsseldorf or Bonn, just a short train ride away.
