Improve your German and discover Vienna – the perfect choice before the Polyglot Gathering 2019

Eager to improve your German? We are happy to welcome you in our wonderful city of Vienna in late Spring – the perfect time for a visit. If you take the short course in German, specifically designed for polyglots, at our language school, you can expect a lot more than conventional classroom teaching. We have put together the awesome and intensive short course “Learn German while discovering Vienna!” for you. Most lessons take place outside the school, and you will learn intensively through a variety of activities in Vienna.

We offer a shorter (Monday – Wednesday, 27 – 29 May 2019) and longer (Sunday – Wednesday, 26 – 29 May 2019) version of the course.

The course times are indicated in teaching units (TU) of 45 minutes.
