Program Description:

OUS Tubingen Spring IntensiveProgram Overview

Historic Tübingen, a beautiful university town located along the Neckar River in the southwestern German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. With 25,000 students among its 85,000 inhabitants, Tübingen combines the vitality of a young and cosmopolitan student community with the charm of a lovingly restored medieval town of half-timbered houses, narrow alleyways, and steep gabled roofs. Nestled in the Schwabian Alb, Tübingen is surrounded by rolling countryside with hiking and cycling paths to enjoy, castles to explore, and easy train connections to both major cities and quaint villages. 

Program Focus

Participants in the International Summer Course will not only learn German language, they will also become knowledgeable about contemporary German society, politics, and culture. After each day’s lessons, there is a selection of interesting activities and courses to choose from.

The courses are taught by experienced bilingual instructors. They are assisted by German tutors who help in different areas such as homework, conversation, projects, etc.  There are up to eight class levels for students with elementary to intermediate knowledge of German (A2 – B1/2). Classes are small (16 participants max.) and usually have two teaching staff.  Every weekday students will have four hours of language lessons in the morning and a two-hour tutorial in the afternoon. The course encompasses intensive training in writing and speaking, grammar, reading comprehension, intercultural general knowledge and everyday culture.  In addition, course participants prepare projects on subjects of their own choice within the fields of language and knowledge of Germany. Along with the additional activities, the course comprises approximately 32 contact hours per week.
