Do you think you've made progress?
« Assolutamente, non solo a livello grammaticale, ma anche di fluenza nel parlare.Sicuramente i progressi son stati dati, oltre che dalle lezioni a scuola, dal rapporto che avevo con la mia Gastmutter, con la quale parlavo molto e con il ragazzo di nazionalità svizzera francese che ha alloggiato per un periodo nella mia stessa casa. Infatti, il fatto che non conoscessimo le nostre rispettive lingue ha fatto sí che utilizzassimo il tedesco. »
School highlights
« Location fantastica, ho adorato il fatto che ci fossero dei luoghi dedicati allo studente come le terrazze, il cortile e la caffetteria, nei quali ci si potesse fermare a studiare o a rilassarsi dopo le lezioni.Il personale scolastico é gentile e sempre disponibile, inoltre i professori sono comprensivi e stimolanti.Altro punto a favore é sicuramente l'ubicazione della scuola, situata nel centro della città oltre che la vicinanza delle scuola ad un bar, punto di ritrovo degli studenti durante le pause, alla mensa, alla biblioteca ed alla piazza principale di Friburgo. »

Esperienza che consiglierei assolutamente a chiunque. La scuola è come una grande famiglia, l'accoglienza è ottima, e l'insegnamento anche. Già con poche settimane si riescono a vedere i frutti di ciò che viene insegnato. Feedback più che positivo. Ottima scuola

È stata un'esperienza meravigliosa, mi ha lasciato un segno nel cuore. Le persone che hanno permesso tutto questo, fantastiche e disponibili per ogni richiesta e informazione. In classe c'era una bella atmosfera . Le lezioni non erano pesanti e gli insegnanti cercavano di rendere il tutto poacevole con la prtecipazione di tutti.

What I like the most are the lessons at the school! I enrolled in the PREMIUM course, which also allows me to improve my written skills, thanks to the afternoon lessons. The number of students in my class is limited, which boosts individual learning. The teachers are always ready to give some advice or correct mistakes. My goal was to get the TELC B1 certificate. The Premium 30 lessons course that I’m currently following will be very useful to reach this goal. Since I arrived, I noticed I made progress and that makes me very happy!

On the weekend, the school organizes many activities (like excursions to Europa Park), movie nights or days out in the city that allow us to discover the area and to use the language outside the classroom. Moreover, living in a residence allows us to meet German students, who live on the last floor. Another opportunity to practice the language!

Freiburg is a university town close to the Black Forest. It boasts traditional architecture charged with history. I thought it was interesting that all of the canals of the town centre are monitored by one single person who is in charge of monitoring the flow of water coming from the mountains. I also thought it was good that plates had been built in the sidewalk in front of the houses of Jewish people who died in concentration camps. The goal of the artist is to get passers-by thinking by giving information about the former inhabitants of these houses. There are a large number of bike parks in Freiburg because it is the main means of transportation in town.

Alpadia, Freiburg
Duration: 8 weeks

I love the German language and I wish to study in Freiburg (Germany) to become a German teacher. I got to know about ESL because my mother knew of someone who had done a trip with ESL – Language Study Trip. Before arriving in Freiburg, I had already done a trip with ESL in Vancouver and I had been delighted with it. I am very happy with the organization of my language trip and the agency helped me when I encountered problems with my flight.
I improved my pronunciation and I can now clearly differentiate the Swiss German from the "Hochdeutsch" as far as the grammar is concerned. Now I am more comfortable with German and make fewer mistakes. Furthermore, the communication with my host family taught me as much as going to school. My host family was always available for me and integrated me in many of their activities. I would certainly go through ESL for my next language trip!
