German Language Holidays for Families
Experience Vienna together!
Parents and youths live together in Vienna, take part in German courses and explore the cultural and leisure programme during summer.
- Easy combination of summer courses for youths and courses for parents and other family members in the heart of Vienna!
- We can arrange accommodation in an ActiLingua Residence Family Apartment, a host family, or a hotel.
- Included cultural and leisure programme in the afternoons and evenings, optional trips and excursions at the weekends.
Lessons are held in small, international groups of maximum 15 students from Monday to Friday. You will practice grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and oral comprehension in systematically structured lessons. Emphasis is placed on German in real-life situations outside school, communicative language games and working in groups and pairs. You can choose between our Summer Course 1 / Holiday Course 1 (20 lessons/week) and Summer Course 2 / Holiday Course 2 (30 lessons/week).
While the children are at school in the morning, parents and other adult family members have the option of also taking a course at ActiLingua Academy: Standard Course, Intensive Course, Super-Intensive Course or Individual Tuition.
The Summer School 12-17 years is located in central Vienna and within easy reach of public transportation. In the middle of the campus, a big park combines leisure and sports facilities, available for all students after lessons. It is only 20 minutes away by public transport from our school, where the Holiday Course 16-19 years and the Adult Courses 16+ take place.
The Holiday Course 16-19 years takes place at the ActiLingua Dependance Sacré Coeur, which is situated directly next to the ActiLingua Academy. With its spacious park and many sports facilities it is well equipped for housing a youth course in summer.
The ActiLingua Academy for adults 16+ is centrally located in Vienna's embassy district opposite Belvedere Palace and can easily be reached by public transport. The city centre can be reached in 10-15 minutes.
Families are welcome to join our leisure programme that will keep them entertained after class and at the weekends. They can choose between included activities such as sports, Viennese Waltz courses, city walks and disco evenings, and optional leisure activities like half- and whole-day excursions, our Culture Special and concerts or musicals. Of course, families are free outside class to spend time enjoying Vienna's extensive leisure time facilities by themselves.
