The leisure program takes place in the afternoons and evenings and complements the intensive courses that take place in the mornings. At the beginning of the course you will receive our current leisure brochure, which lists all courses and activities. 

Some of the activities are free of charge and some are subject to a fee. Participation in the activities is optional 

In specialized courses and lectures you can improve your language skills and deepen your knowledge of our country and culture. In other leisure activities you have the opportunity to get to know many other course participants and thus improve your German in a playful way.
