With the introduction of the iPad and the Kindle we have witnessed another revolution in the evolution of the printed word. We should remember that books, as we know them today, only came about in the lateRenaissance in the mid 16th century. Johannes Gutenburg and his Gutenburg Bible made astounding advances for the printed word and its dissemination throughout Europe. Prior to the introduction of the printing press books had been hand written for centuries on anything from papyrus to linen, which makes such artifacts called incunables (books published before 1501 A.C.E.), priceless and their knowledge the property of an exclusive few.
German Language School in Tyrol provides highly intensive German language immersion training. With more than twenty five years of experience of teaching German as a foreign language, we have improved our program over the years in response to feed back from students. The school has grown in size and reputation since 1981, and now welcomes students from all over the world.
At our German language school you will find a dedicated and experienced faculty, the most modern and efficient methodology, the latest technology and a friendly environment in which to learn German language.
The German language school is located in Kitzbühel, an attractive alpine town surrounded by mountains. It is a small, ancient town in the west Austrian province of Tyrol, the mountainous part of Austria. Kitzbühel is internationally famous because of the annual World Championship Downhill Ski Race. Kitzbühel is also host to the Austrian Tennis Open Championships. Click here to learn more about Tyrol and Kitzbühel.
Our German courses are different from other German language schools for three main reasons:
- Small classes: Our classes are very small, with never more than 6 people per class and on average 3 - 4 students.
- Free time program: Our free time program is very extensive. We offer at least one activity every day of the week, in addition to the regular Monday to Friday morning classes. We use our extensive local knowledge to exploit this fabulous region.
- A friendly welcome: You will find that a small school has a lot of personal benefits. A teacher accompanies every free time program, so your contact to German speakers is much greater than just in lesson time.
This means that your German improves very fast, you get to know your class mates and people from other classes very well, you get to know the teachers and staff very well, and you are speaking German all the time. It's important that your stay here should be fun as well as educational, and staying in a small school means that you can get very involved in the free time program if you want to and learn a lot about Austria and Tyrol as well as the German language.
