German Courses in Frankfurt (ages 12-21)
Participate in a German camp for teens that's packed full of fun, sports, history, and cultural activities!
Frankfurt-am-Main is the fashionable financial capital of Europe and a modern urban centre on the graceful river ‘Main’. As a centre for trade and commerce, Frankfurt has become one of Europe's most international cities which makes it a great place to meet new people from around the globe! This ornate city of towering skyscrapers and carefully maintained green spaces still possesses some old world charm in the form of Old-Frankfurt, where you will find beautiful timber-frame houses and cobblestone streets. Although people often only think of Frankfurt as an international metropolis/ business city, Frankfurt actually has a very deep & intriguing history. Here you will discover a rich tapestry of German art and traditions.
During your trip to Frankfurt you will have the chance to see some of Frankfurt's many beautiful cathedrals, fascinating art galleries, and compelling museums. This bustling city is known for having amazing shopping, delicious sausages, a chic and active social scene, and robust beverages.
Our language school is located in Sachsenhausen, considered to be one of the most beautiful areas in all of Frankfurt. The school is on the 5th floor of a modern 13 story building but the reception area can be found on the ground floor.
