Learn German in Austria
No one told me I was studying German in a palace!
A friend of mine from Italy, Sarah, told me about this school and that it is a very nice place to learn German.
I like that the study groups are small and that I can always ask when I do not understand grammar. The teachers always have time to explain everything to me and I believe to learn very fast this way.
When I was learning German in Japan, I was only doing it in Japanese, so there quite some areas lacking. So learning German actually in German really is something good in my opinion.
I’m a big self-learner […] but there comes a point, especially when you’re learning German, that you need some instruction
I was very impressed with how quickly I progressed. Your teaching methods upgraded my German language skills expeditiously.
Top class international language school.

I really enjoyed the company of the people I met there and the fact we had a lot of free time to bond. The classes, materials and teachers were very enjoyable and helpful. I improved my German knowledge a lot and I am happy I attended those lessons. The accommodation was very good along with the food and staff working there. The activities were fine, but I feel they could still be improved.
A fun, efficient and Austrian way to improve our German language skills.
I was nervous about coming to ActiLingua because I am an older learner & I was afraid I would feel out of place. I felt immediately accepted because the focus at ActiLingua is on learning the language. I had fun & learned a great deal. Thank you!
ActiLingua is a very open and positive place where you can meet great people and learn the German language.
Perfect an friendly school that will actually help you with the language you want to learn.

Thank you for the unforgettable experience!

This isn’t just a German course. It’s a private school with unlimited possibilities.
The first day, when I met all my friends from last year, was my most memorable moment here.
Good organization, friendly teachers and good location near the city center.

Great teachers! Always smiling! Always in a good mood.
Nice time, cool people, rich teaching program. I especially recommend the course for German teachers!
I really liked the introduction to the dialect and "Umgangssprache". The school is very nice and the teachers are friendly and helpful. I'd come again!
I liked ActiLingua very much. All the people and teachers were very helpful and kind. I liked best, that everyone who works for ActiLingua is young and understands students who come here not only to learn the language but also to get to know the people and the city. I liked that we talked a lot in German and we did a great progress in grammar.

ActiLingua was excellent, I found it very friendly and the facilities (e.g. Internet) very helpful. I enjoyed the constant rotation of teachers as it was interesting to see their approach to classes.

Thanks for all you have done for my son, John Finney. Special thanks to his teacher, Barbara, for all her help in teaching John and taking care of him (including a visit to the doctor). You are giving John a wonderful experience and memories for his whole life.
The course is very interesting and stimulating. I live in a perfect host family. The mother is ‘die perfekte Mutti’.

I made a lot of friends. And I learned a lot of vocabulary.
I was very happy. The lessons, accommodation and the teachers' enthusiasm were super. My stay in Vienna was a successful experience. Thank you.
It’s a good school for learning German: Good location, comfortable class rooms, friendly teachers, few students per class, no need of books, not many people.
I could decide myself how many weeks I would like to stay, the school seemed very serious and it offered many different courses and levels. A great school where you can learn German from your own level. Everyone is so nice and helpful there so you can feel safe and secure about anything
ActiLingua is a human-sized school, which helps a lot to improve German with good methos and balance between grammar and understanding.
Most memorable moments are definitely tied to meeting people from all over the world, going out together and of course helping each other improve in German.
I liked that we did something different each day, so we covered lots of different topics. ActiLingua provides an opportunity to embrace Asutrian culture whilst enjoying an immensive, authentic German language experience.

Really got lucky with this school: even before coming, I had to complete a placement test, and then upon arrival had to have a short conversation with someone from the school so that they were sure to put me in the right group, appropriate for my level. I did a two-week intensive/super-intensive German course, and it was great: 10h of grammar, 10h of conversation, 10h of intensive course for whatever we wanted to do, be it grammar, conversation or something else; and then the second week the super-intensive course included 10h of one on one classes, basically to do whatever I wanted (we did some grammar, some conversation). The group I was in was indeed at my level, the teachers were nice and always well prepared, but still flexible to help us with anything we wanted to go into or ask.
The location is nice, close to a park, the building is charmingly old but well maintained and equipped, so really everything was great. Highly recommend it!!!
The best moment was when we made the excursion to Wachau and nobody spoke English there. At first I felt very uncomfortable, but then I just started to talk and understand and I was really surprised how much I can.
I liked all the teachers, students and classes. It was really great, a new way to learn language being in such a nice city. I have improved my knowledge of German. Thanks a lot!
When I think of happy days in my life and good friends, my thoughts always fly to Vienna and ActiLingua. Thank you very much, once more, for the nice time I have had with you (I mean everything: lessons, excursions, meetings at the Heurigen...). I hope we will meet each other again.
My teacher is very active and funny. It is a lot of fun.
I only stayed at ActiLingua for a week. I remember well how stressed I was on my first day, but everyone was so friendly and I was feeling better.
I am very pleased, got many useful tips and could visit Vienna’s sights every day.
You can meet lots of young people and improve your German.

I've studied three months with ActiLingua and I've learnt lots of things about the German language and the Austrian culture and history. The school is situated in the center of the town, you can go everywhere you want with the public transportation. All the teachers are young and they are also good friends. You always know all the other students because the school is not so big. I also believe that you can learn the best German here.

I like the opportunity to live with other people, experience the Austrian culture. I found a lot of new friends.

... It's an amazing, exciting and beautiful experience; you meet people from all over the world, you get to know other cultures, other minds and other life styles. I advise you to come to Vienna with ActiLingua. Here you'll find a friendly and serious staff who will help you with your studies. You can choose between different kind of courses. The school provides also accommodation. You can choose between a student house or an Austrian family. I live with an Austrian family and they are very kind with me ... In Vienna there is much to do, for every taste and everybody. You have a big choice of theatre, cinema, opera, museum, restaurants and the famous Viennese Kaffeehäuser. ... People who like the night life are also welcome. There are many pubs, discos and different places where to meet people and talk with. Andrea, 22, Switzerland
They are all very friendly and very sociable and funny and can easy explain things in very easy ways. They know how to make a class to run. They are natural talented. They are the best.
