"Great. Covered all aspects of the German Language- oral,written and aural"

Shelley Geoghegan, student from Ireland

The location of Humboldt-Institut is very accessible as there are many bus routes available. This one-week intensive course was extremely beneficial. The teacher that I had (Thomas Diemar) explained in detail all aspects of the language which the students found difficult. He explained grammar topics clearly and ensured that we all had a clear understanding of what he was explaining as we completed exercises individually to show our understanding. He was patient and spent the necessary time on each student with difficulties and he also corrected our pronunciation of the language.

Meals were also provided. I only prevailed of the lunches every day as I was only there for one week and I also chose the no-housing option.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this course. The only negative was that I only did the course for one week. I would strongly recommend doing it for longer.

"I am glad."

JUGES KIBEMBE, student from Italy

All in all I had a good experience.
Teachers are valuable and always available. The teaching methods are effective but sometimes too fast.
Activities on the whole make it possible to open up and converse with others. Although it is about talking with people who are apprentices like me.
The ease of learning varies according to the teachers.
One of the problems that emerge even when I speak with other colleagues is the prices of courses that are high. I do not think that Humboldt is as much better than the other schools that are constant. Then I always ask myself why most people who come never stay long.
I'm not sleeping in Humboldt and I can’t talk about the school location.

School location

Historic university town at Lake Constance

Constance is a lively university town of 82,000 people and is located right on the banks of Lake Constance (Bodensee), often playfully referred to as the “Swabian Sea.” The city has a very attractive historic downtown area, where buildings from the Middle Ages stand alongside Renaissance houses and Baroque palaces; they bear witness to the prosperity of this venerable trading town. Thanks to its proximity to the Swiss border Constance was spared from destruction in World War II.

A wide range of cultural events

The brilliant setting of the town on the shores of the lake and in the foothills of the Alps makes Constance a very attractive program site and facilitates a great variety of leisure opportunities. Due to the modern University, which is one of only 10 Elite Universities of Germany, the city has a fantastic infrastructure for international students and offers a wide range of cultural events, e.g., music, theater and film festivals, jazz performances and literature meetings, as well as a large number of bars, cafés, clubs and restaurants.

"What is exactly the difference between "Intensive German Course for commuters" and the regular "Intensive German Course"."

Martin Ivan, student from Slovakia
Norbert Guethling, Humboldt-Institut e.V. school representative

The difference between the "Intensive German Course for commuters" and the regular "Intensive German Course" is that the "Intensive German Course" includes accommodation and full board where as the "Intensive German Course for commuters"  is for people who live in Constance and do not need accommodation and full board.
