German course for children and teens

Learn german with germans!

Develop your German skills while enjoying the homely and welcoming atmosphere of our individually selected course locations.

Over the last 30 years, our LernErlebnisKurse have offered thousands of students from Germany and other European as well as non-European countries such as Japan or the US to participate in our courses.

Students who come to this course are between 10 to 18 years of age and have different levels of proficiency. We are therefore always able to offer the appropriate class to every individual.

During their time at our LernErlebnisKurse, our participants enjoy free accommodation, high-quality classes, as well as fun and exciting activities and excursions. We pride ourselves on bringing fun to every aspect of the course, highlighting the joy of learning and creating a zest for life while supporting the establishment of independence and character development.

 

What makes us so special?
As a staff team, our role is not only to be a teacher to the students, but also a mentor. We are fully immersed in providing the students with the best lessons, as well as offering them the most exciting activities during the afternoon and evening.

Students enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner with staff members to create a communal feeling. To ensure that every student feels welcome, each participant is assigned a trusted staff member to personalize their experience. Despite an action-packed schedule, our students have enough free time to spend on their own or with their new friends.

 

Characteristics of the LeanExperienceCourses
Target group
A

For students from 10 to 18

Each and every year students from all over Germany attend our courses. And several students from more than 50 countries worldwide are part of our customer base.

We face the different proficiencies with the help of mreaningful questionnaires which are being sent tot he parents before the start of each course. Based on these questionnaires we learn the proficiency and the expectation. Our student groups are being composed accordingly.

The students have varying proficiencies, we have rather poor students and some with a high level of proficiency, from Elementary School all through to students about to receive their High School Diploma. Each student will obtain what he or she needs!

Because we want to get to know our students, the care which ve provide is very intensive. The teachers are the caregivers during the afternoon, in the evenings and are responsible for a prescribed set of rooms. Each teach cares for a maximum of 5 students. Each evening a teacher holds conversations with each student to reflect upon the day. When homesickness occurs, our teachers will even read a fairytale for the „little ones“ at 3 a.m…

Lessons

High quality, competence-oriented teaching

Our classes consist of very small groups. Our students are taught in groups of 6 maximum. When performing language or rhetorical exercises, it can happen, that a group will consist of 7 students.

Learning methodology which is held in the afternoon, even increases the value of the warranted study time.

After each course the parents will obtain a notification informing on the course contents, provide learning aid as well as leads for educational goals beyond.

Learning methodology
A

To learn intelligent learning

With the concept of „intelligent learning“ we attempt to provide a model for educators, which provides clarity for meaningful learning. Intelligent learning is meant to be an orientation guide for the learning environment which becomes more and more complex.

At the Studienhaus Landau, LearnExperienceCourses, seminars, lectures, discussions and work materials are being developed fort he professionalization oft he student, the parent and the teacher. This way, by help of our learning concept, we attempt to provide sustained orientation and security.

With segments that complement each other in regards to the complex questions of learning methodology (for single and/or group work), we want to provide valuable food for thought and impulses and put learning in a holistic context. The user obtains many ideas and suggestions which can be converted in his or her own learning in everyday life. That way he or she trains the learning skills in an intelligent way.
