Since 1995, our partner school Treffpunkt in Bamberg, a university city listed as UNESCO World Heritage, has been established on the first and second floors of a smart building in the city centre, in the pedestrian area, with a view of the Main-Danube canal. The students, for the most part around thirty years old, represent more than 50 different nationalities. The school has specialised in courses for professionals, university students and people interested more particularly in the culture. The course centre has 10 very bright classrooms, generously renovated in 2012, and a computer room with free Internet and WiFi access. A library and a relaxation room with a TV, DVD library and musical instruments are available.

J'ai trouvé cette expérience linguistique extraordinaire. Je ne peux que conseiller cette destination aux autres personnes. J'ai trouvé cette école très professionnelle et en même temps très conviviale. D'y être, c'était comme si l'on se retrouvait au sein d'une petite famille. Le contact entre les élèves et les professeurs était très ouvert et amicale. J'avais un logement individuel, sous forme d'un petit studio, très bien situé par rapport à l'école. La ville possède un grand nombre de restaurants. Le coût est très accessible et permet de découvrir la culture locale. L'école organise au moins 3 activités par semaine. Chaque semaine, les activités sont adaptées. En y participant, j'ai pu découvrir la ville et sa vie locale, ainsi que d'autres élèves de l'école. De plus, les échanges ont été toujours réalisées dans la langue allemande!

C'était un très bon séjour. La ville est très jolie, les allemands sont très sympathiques (ce que je ne pensais pas, je dois l'avouer), et l'école de langue sur place est vraiment super. L'école est vraiment bien. Les cours sont bien structurés, les enseignants sont motivés, dynamiques et motivants, l'ambiance est très agréable... Vous ne pouviez pas avoir de meilleur partenaire!

« Les autres étudiants ne parlaient globalement pas anglais, et les allemands peuvent parler anglais mais ne le font pas. Cela crée une immersion totale qui permet de progresser, aussi bien au niveau de la compréhension que de l'expression orale.De plus, le test demandé par avance par l'école de langue a permis de cibler précisément les points qui me manquaient pour le B2 (Konjunktiv I + Präpositionalpronomen + Pronominaladverb), et j'ai rejoins le cours exactement pour ces sujets-là. C'était super. »

Florence Galley
Treffpunkt, Bamberg
Duration: 16 weeks

Their names are Dani and Alexandra. They are nice and friendly. When we have a question or a problem, they are always there for us. They organise many activities for us. It is always very funny. In the mornings, we have two teachers (one from 9 to 10.30am and another one from 11am to 12.30pm) and in the afternoons we have only one teacher. The teachers are very competent, helpful, etc. The lessons are always interesting and we never do the same thing twice. When we have questions, the teachers give us examples until we understand. There are classes in the mornings and in the afternoons. In the mornings, we study in groups while in the afternoons, we have private courses. During private courses, you can learn more effectively because you’re alone with the teacher and you can choose what you want to study. In the mornings, it is also interesting to study in groups because you can exchange ideas with the others and learn vocabulary, grammar, etc.

On the first day, we are given an exercise & grammar book and a folder. In class, the teachers also give us sheets of paper with exercises or grammar points which are not included in the book. The book is very good: there is a course section, an exercise book and a grammar section. Treffpunkt organises activities every week. We receive the activities programme for the whole week on Mondays. On Mondays, for instance, we eat, go hiking or visit a place together, etc. At the weekend, there is always something to do. You are never alone. It’s good because it is a bit difficult at first when you don’t know anyone. It gives you an opportunity to make new friends quickly. And on Thursdays, there’s the Stammtisch : it is my favourite activity. The students, a few teachers, the host families and friends from the school gather in a bar to drink beer, eat or simply chat. It is very nice. You can also improve your German that way. You laugh a lot, take pictures, etc. Every Friday, a departure party is organised for students who are going back home. They receive a certificate and a pen. Dani and Alexandra take lots of pictures. It’s really cool. I think the Treffpunkt school is great and I am very satisfied with my course.

Treffpunkt, Bamberg
Duration: 6 weeks

My stay in Bamberg was 6 weeks long, during which I had an amazing time. I took a B2 level intensive German course at the Sprachinstitut Treffpunkt in Bamberg. In my class, there were 4 students of different nationalities and in the afternoons, I booked a private lesson with a teacher. The school atmosphere was wonderful, the classes were very participative and the teachers were fantastic. The school’s leisure programme was very complete and I was able to visit authentic places, little known by tourists. I had the opportunity to see the different monuments of Bamberg, a World Heritage Site, and enjoy its cuisine in its many famous beer gardens. I also visited incredible cities like Würzburg and the dramatic landscapes of German-speaking Switzerland. I learned so much and met people from all over the world. I keep in touch both with my classmates and with my teachers.

This time I stayed in a guesthouse, which is a home with common areas (kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry room and a marvellous garden), where I had my own room with a desk and a TV, as well as my own bathroom. All of the areas were completely adapted for wheelchair users, as was my case. The house was found about 20 minutes from school on foot and 5 minutes by bus.

With respect to the planning by ESL, especially by Inés, who was always following up to make sure that my stay was absolutely perfect, I can only say thank you. They took care of everything, like always, and I’m already waiting for summer 2018 to arrive so I can go back to Bamberg.

Host family
Our partner school insists that you are accommodated well and chooses its host families with care. It is in the convivial setting of a household which can be made up as much by a couple as a single person that you will improve your languaage knowledge on a daily basis. It is the best option for living the language in total immersion. You stay in a single room, choose between the options of breakfast only or half board (Mon-Fri) and share the common rooms as well as the bathroom with your hosts. All of the families are situated within a perimeter of approximately 15 minutes by bus or bicycle from the school.

Shared apartment
Our partner school also proposes sharing an apartment (WG) with local inhabitants, which offers a combination between the interaction with locals (couple, single person, German student. etc., of all ages) and a certain level of independence. Staying in a single room, you will share the common areas and will have access to the shared kitchen. You will contribute, like your flatmates, to household tasks.

Private apartment, hotels
It is also possible to stay in studios, apartments for individual use or comfortable hotels, all close to the school.
Additional information and prices on request.

Our partner school will present you with a weekly activities programme among which you will choose those which interest you. Culture occupies a large place in it, with visits, concerts and themed outings. But local attractions (breweries, Stammtisch, etc.) and sport also figure in this programme. At the weekend, the Treffpunkt school will propose some destinations for full-day excursions to you because, in Bamberg, you will be in pole position to discover, among others, Nuremberg and its Kaiserburg, Würzburg and its old bridge on the Rhine, Regensburg and its dome.
In order to facilitate you getting around Bamberg, a bicycle shop close to the school rents bicycles at preferential rates.
