Summer language courses in Augsburg:
learn German, Spanish, French or English in Bavaria
Bavaria, situated in the south of Germany, remains a beautiful and incredible area of rich countryside well known for its extravagant castles and its baroque cities. It is a country that has apparently not been influenced by the changes of the outside world reflecting an authentic space where it is possible to enjoy your summer language course in an atmosphere of complete security.
Our centre is based in Augsburg, one of the oldest cities of Germany, the foundation of which can be traced back to the Romans and which was one of the biggest and most important towns of Germany at the end of the Middle-Ages.
Today, the university gives the town a youthful atmosphere. One third of the town’s area is either green space or forest area, which makes Augsburg one of the greenest cities in Germany. All in all Augsburg is a picturesque and lively city that leaves no room for boredom! You have the opportunity to improve your German, Spanish, French or English and to meet students from Germany and other countries.
