This is my second time attended a language school in Germany. My experience at HORIZONTE has been absolutely amazing! It has exceeded all my expectations in every way. All the staff personel were friendly, helpful and made me feel welcome at all time. I found that the teaching method is extremely effective. My teacher had made every class a fun one and I have learned a lot in a short period of time. The after school "Freizeitprogramm" was well organized and fun. I would highly recommended HORIZONTE to anyone that is interested in attending a German language school.

Bien plus qu'une simple école de langue ! Tout le monde est adorable et veille à ce que tout se déroule bien, le contact est aisé avec toutes les personnes travaillant à l'école:) WAHOU ! Première expérience du genre pour moi, je recommande ! Les professeurs sont tout simplement géniaux. L'enseignement est dynamique, intéressant et se déroule dans une ambiance agréable. Pas du tout l'impression d'être "à l'école" et c'est peut-être pour cela qu'on apprend aussi bien !

Testimonials

Elodie Oulevey
Elodie Oulevey
Horizonte, Regensburg
Duration: 12 weeks

Regensburg is a small town where you quickly feel at home; the school is also small and very friendly, with a family atmosphere. There is a good nationality mix and very few French-speaking people. The teachers as well as the director are very friendly and accessible. I was surprised to see that they knew the names of all of the students, even if they hadn’t had direct contact with them. The lessons were very interesting and varied. What’s more, as I was there off-season, there were usually no more than 5 students per class, which gave us many opportunities to speak German and improve our skills.

I was staying at the school residence, which I am really happy about since it is located on the same floor as the school (on the 4th floor of a building). All of the rooms (singles and doubles) have a private bathroom and the kitchen is shared with around 20 other students. This accommodation option is perfect to build ties from the first day onwards, cook together and discover food from all over the world. Its central location in the heart of the town centre allows you to enjoy the diverse cafés, restaurants, bars, shops, etc. The school also offers very varied activities almost every day as well as excursions on Saturdays. Regensburg is located 2 hours away from Munich and around 3 hours away from Vienna and Prague, which gives you the opportunity to do some travelling, especially with the "Bayern-Tickets", which allow you to travel by train with several of your friends at very advantageous prices!
It was a great experience and I even start to like German. Now I would like to go back there as soon as possible!

Host family
The school has a good network of host families, who generally live around 20 minutes by bus away from the course centre. This accommodation option represents a good way of practising the German language that you will have learned during classes. You will stay in a single room with half board provided.

Residence
Our partner school has its own residence and only a door will separate you from the course centre. It consists of 38 single rooms (some with a private bathroom) and common areas such as equipped kitchens, a laundry room, games and relaxation areas, and a WiFi connection.

Numerous activities are proposed by the school, including guided visits of Regensburg, Nuremberg, Bamberg and Weltenburg, as well as boat trips on the Danube. Cinema evenings and outings to the "Biergarten" are also organised. In this way, you will have the opportunity to establish ties with other students from the school in a festive and relaxed atmosphere.
