We offer language and literature classes at all levels for three or six weeks between late June and early August. Every year we serve approximately forty undergraduate and graduate students, and especially embrace beginners. In

is supplemented by a wide variety of language- and culture-related activities, such as workshops, films, lectures, games, and outings. Our faculty is exclusively made up of native speakers, many joining us directly from Germany
for the summer. And we take pride in offering a ratio of students to native speakers of around 5:1, which creates a friendly, personable language learning environment.
