German summer courses with ILI

The summer is a great time to learn a language like German. We’re generally a bit more relaxed, more open and expansive as people when the warm weather comes, and these are important characteristics of a learning mindset.

German Summer Courses in Germany

If you’re planning on heading to Germany this summer on one of our Study German Abroad programs, then you’ll see that Germany is on a very similar latitude to our home in Massachusetts in North America. That means the winters can be cold, grey and long, and the summers are so much sweeter in comparison. A German summer course in Germany will be identical to any other time of year. The beneficial difference comes when you step outside of the classroom and you’re out in the vibrant atmosphere of street cafes, warm cobblestones, and that whole feeling of euphoria you feel when you’re on holiday in the sun!

If you like the idea of taking a German summer course in Germany, but you’re not sure where to start, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Wilkommen – Welcome!

As standard we customize your German course abroad just for you. We first help you choose between our sister schools in Germany, we get to understand your level and goals, your learning style and personal preferences, then we compile a quote based on those requirements.

Best of all, you pay no more for this service, than if you had gone directly to the school.

Of course, you don’t need to venture that far. You don’t even need to leave your home if you don’t want to. You can take German classes sitting out on the porch with your laptop, or head into downtown Northampton, Mass, where you’ll find our warm, friendly, cosmopolitan language school.

No matter if you’re starting from scratch or already a pro, our courses are designed for all levels. Get ready to chat, dive into grammar, and boost your vocabulary in an environment that’s both supportive and engaging.

“I studied German with ILI via a live online german conversation class. The classes were great, and everyone was super friendly. Because they’re so interested in you as a person, it can’t help but boost your self-confidence, and that is critical when it comes to speaking a language. I’m hoping to join the next course and keep going. Thanks Linda and Heather.”
