The educational center Humboldt Institut began its work more than 40 years ago - in 1977. Over the years of successful work, the main task for the founders of the institute was to give students from different countries the opportunity to learn German and do it quickly and efficiently. During this time, about 70 thousand people from more than 160 countries have been trained in 18 branches of the institute located in different cities of Germany. Some of the centers operate year-round, so you can attend courses not only in summer.

Today Humboldt Institut is recognized as one of the largest centers in the international market for the provision of educational services related to the German language. The Institute works according to its program, which has been formed over the years of successful practice. Its key features are:

  • Fast and effective learning
  • Educational content adapted for different categories of students taking into account their age features
  • Holistic learning, covering all aspects of German
  • High scores on exams like TestDaF
  • High degree of student satisfaction.

An equally important component for the success of the center is the teaching staff of the school: every teacher at the Humboldt Institut Summer School Freiburg has high professional qualifications and work experience with international classes.

Accommodation, housing and food

Training and accommodation for students of the summer camp is organized in the KL residence: modern double rooms with all the necessary furniture are available here. Shower and toilet are on the floor. In the residence, bed linen and towels are changed regularly, laundry is also available for students - you can wash personal items for free.

Boys and girls live separately, for the rest, the principle of resettlement of students in rooms is based on two criteria: the level of knowledge of German and age. Even if the guests speak different languages, this approach will help them to establish communication and practice German outside the classroom.

Catering for students is organized on full board (tomorrow, lunch, dinner) right here, on the campus of the Humbolt summer school.
