Course details

THE CAMPUS

We are happy to welcome you to the historic castle of Hohensolms, situated just a 5 minute’s walk away from the village of Hohensolms. The castle has been welcoming young people from all over the world for many years.

German students will also be present on campus. They will attend an English or French language course and participate in the programmed afternoon and evening activities.

Lessons normally take place from Monday to Friday between 09:00 and 12:30. The four morning lessons focus on the main areas of language learning: grammar and language work, reading and listening, communicative activities and speaking practice. The aim is to provide you with the vocabulary and grammar required for effective communication and particular attention is paid to improving speaking and listening skills.
