More than ‘just’ learning a language…
We believe that a language is learnt best when it is presented ‘cohesively’ – therefore a cultural offer for our students is of great importance to us. This might be a walk to a local pub (with or without a Karaoke contest), an excursion to the neighbouring towns of Lübeck or Lüneburg or to the North Sea, a visit to an important place in and around Hamburg, or a trip to Berlin, the ca-pital. We are changing and adding to the pro- gramme regularly, thus guaranteeing the highest possible up-to-dateness.
We offer tailor-made programmes for student groups from abroad! You tell us when and for how long you would like to come to us with your group, and what especially you are interested in, and we will put together an offer for you consisting of the following:
• Accommodation and Catering
Single rooms with host families, bed & breakfast or half board; or hostel accommodation on request (free stays for accompanying tutors)
• Pick-up, Transfer and Welcome
We are meeting you at the airport / station / port and take you to TANDEM; there your host families will be waiting for you. • German language course + TANDEM exchange We are integrating your students in our language courses or opening up special classes for you – including TANDEM partners.
• Hamburg Culture Programme
In addition, there will be a varied cultural programme in Hamburg of 2-3 items per week. A selection: Canoeing on the river Alster, tour through the city hall guided by a member of parliament, stroll through St Pauli (the ‘Kiez’) and scenic Blankenese, a guided tour of the concentration camp memorial Neuengamme, visits to the Holsten brewery and the Air- bus plant, a walking and boating tour through the port, the harbour city, the historic warehouse district Speicherstadt, to the beaches of the river Elbe or on our fun “Mission Impossible“ – an exciting city safari with many questions.
• Further Options
- Bus trip to Berlin, 2 nights in a centrally located friendly hostel (shared dorm, half board), visits and guided tours through Bundestag (our Federal Parliament), the Jewish Museum and a bicycle tour through the centre of the capital.
- Weekend day trip to Büsum at the North Sea with a guided mudflat hiking tour, followed by a dinner and beach life.
We like groups!
