Summer School 12-17 years: Your opinions
Awesome school made of beautiful people. I like best about my course that I could improve my english and my German everyday, and the teachers, because they were very nice. I met a lot of new friends from different countries and I’ll never forget this experience.
Hello everybody, I just wanted to briefly tell you about my daughter’s experience at Actilingua in Vienna. Someone in our list made a wonderful recommendation to me two years ago. My daughter has been taking German in high school and wanted to study abroad. Due to the recommendation on the list we contacted Actilingua. They have several youth summer programs. We sent our daughter for two successive summers to a 3 week program with everything included except the airfare. She flew there and back on her own, she was met at the airport, taken to the school, and we did not have to worry about her. She really liked the classes, several hours in the morning, more in the afternoon if you want, and regular outings and cultural activities. The program is self-contained and is held in the building where a prestigious high school with boarders operates during the school year. It has beautiful grounds and is a 10 minute walk into town. The kids are closely supervised, have to sign in and out, etc. My daughter loved it and has a zillion friends on Facebook from her two summers there. The price is quite affordable. My daughter feels like it is a home away from home. She also went to a tennis academy on her on the U-Bahn to prepare for tennis team tryouts. She loved it there. There are also special deals for teachers who bring at least 5 students. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

I want to live and study here in Vienna. I like ActiLingua and I have come here to improve my German and meet a lot of new people.
I had fun but I really, really improved my grammar... And that was important to me. What I liked best was learning but also ENJOYING the lessons, and of course above that, I loved the people, both the students and the teachers.

ActiLingua was fourteen days of fun.

I really liked the teachers (same as last year!) and that I could improve my German. ActiLingua is the best place! The lessons were great and I really improved my language.
ActiLingua is a place to meet new people, learn German and have a great time.
We learned a lot. It is a good school to practice German.
I liked my teacher and the really good and interesting topics that we were discussing.
Grammar was well explained and I actually enjoyed it and - especially - understood it! I could socialize with many people!
My teacher was very careing. I liked being in Austria, being submerged in the culture.
In ActiLingua you can make new friends and learn Deutsch well.
We learnt a lot. Also, we learnt throught games! I met a lot of new friends from all over the world. We went to UNO-city, Carnuntum and Rathausplatz!
ActiLingua is life, ActiLingua is love.
It was a laid back environment and it wasn't high stress. It was interesting. The trip to Salzburg and the House of Music were both very good. The soccer tournament was also great.
The memories we shared and friendships we made are gonna last a lifetime.
What I liked best? In the afternoons the volleyball tournament and the workshopts (bracelets!). In the evenings ActiLingua's "superstar" talent show, walks to 'Rathausplatz' and the Olympic games. I loved the class, the people I met and how beautiful Vienna is.
It’s great to find out more about other cultures.
Hello, my name is Ana Maria Rodrigues and i´ve been to Austria for the last 3 years on the youth program. I just want to tell, that those weeks that i´ve spent in summer school were the best summer holidays i´ve ever had. On the youth programme homepage, you´ve got a picture in which 4 of my dearest friends are. I would also like to say, that all the environment created between teacher-students and between the students themselves was amaizing. My friendship with the whole school was and still is so strong, that me and my actilingua friends, we have made some plans all together and also visited each other. For example, my spanish, my croatian and some turkish friends have come to Portugal, and i did the same.I just know that most of these friendship will last forever. Thank you very much for the fabulous 14 weeks that I´ve had in Austria. If you could deliver a message for all the teachers of the summer campus: I hope to see each and every one of you in Portugal as soon as possible. I miss you all. Auf Wiedersehen und vielen Dank.
Ana Maria, Portugal.
Great place to learn German and to meet new people.
I liked learning things that I could use that day outside of ActiLingua. Acti was so fun and filled with amazing people and very cultural.
I liked that I could learn lots of new things. Learning means fun in ActiLingua.
