German Kids and Teens language courses in Vienna

Learning a language works best when the children can actively participate in the lesson. Not only the size of the group, but also the design of the lesson matters. The lessons are loosened up by age-appropriate learning games. In addition, students take a free placement test. Afterwards, our staff will recommend the appropriate language course. A maxcimum of 10 students are in one group to ensure efficient learning.

A language is most easily learned in childhood in a familiar environment – we make use of that. Depending on the age of the children, we work with pictures, audio, texts and games that correspond to the topics of everyday life of the children in the language to be learned. In this way, the children overcome their fear of the new language system and are quickly able to repeat the first-learned-words and language structures. They can quickly communicate in the newly learned language, understand and react to messages addressed to them, and form small sentences.

Through repetition and child-friendly, playful embedding in everyday interests, your child builds up new language structures without the pressure to learn and primarily practices communication, from school age also writing short texts.

Our language courses during the school holidays

Our language courses are based on the Austrian holiday calendar. The courses take place as intensive courses, which means that the lessons take place every day. We organize our groups according to the age of the students. The following groups are available:

Students between the ages of 3 and 6 years
Students from 7 to 10 years
Students between 11 and 13 years

We not only make sure that the students are classified according to their age, but also that they have a similar level of knowledge. This is not always easy to determine for advanced students. In this case, students can take a free placement test. This can be done online or at our language school in Vienna. Afterwards, our language trainers will advise and assign the student to a suitable course. In this way, the teacher can start exactly with the level of knowledge of the student. So little time is lost.
