Summer Holidays in St. Gilgen
What could be better than learning German in one of Austria’s most beautiful holiday destinations! We spent two weeks from August 08th to August 21st, 2016 in the Austrian town of St. Gilgen and did not regret: a crystal clear lake of Wolfgangsee, majestic Alps and friendly locals. Well, traditionally we traveled a lot around the neighborhood. It is easy to get to famous tourist places from St. Gilgen. We walked along the old streets of Salzburg, admired the imperial luxury of Bad-Ischl and explored the salt cave in Halstadt (by the way, the historical center of Salzburg and the cultural landscape of Halstadt are included into the UNESCO World Heritage list). The program was accompanied by daily exciting lessons in German. But even under such a rich program we found time to rest on the beach and play with friends.
A fabulous winter in the Alps
Our traditional winter language academy took place at the picturesque resort town of Berchtesgaden located in the valley of the Alpine mountains (from 05.01. to 14.01.2017). We went on hikes, breathed the purest alpine air and enjoyed the fabulously beautiful nature. And, of course, every day began with intensive many-hour classes in German with highly qualified teachers. And this knowledge we have confirmed in practice: listened to German-speaking guides, communicated with locals of Salzburg, completed interactive tasks during a hike along Lake Königssee and outskirts of Berchtesgaden. And even in the evening we sang German songs and played games in German. Winter holidays of 2017 were a success!
