The teachers are real life professionals, native speakers with a lot of experience, enthusiasm and dedication serving all levels from A1 to C1 in a very interactive and many times playful manner. Our students improved their German skills, especially their vocabulary, conversation and listening skills. They also got books and materials free, to take home to practice.
The afternoons were dedicated to cultural and travel activities. On Monday we had a guided tour of the beautiful Lindau Island (Lindau Insel). On Tuesday we got the chance to visit a family fruit farm ( Obsthof) in Lindau on the mainland ( Lindau Festland). On Wednesday we went to the Austrian Alpine city Bregenz, took a chairlift to reach a mountain peak called Pfänder with a mesmerising view of the Alps and the Bodensee. We were then hiking our way back to the city to spend some time at the Austrian shores of Bodensee. On Thursday we went to a nearby Bavarian city Kisslegg to visit a coffee roasting factory ( Kafferösterei).
We planned to travel to Switzerland on Friday afternoon right after classes, but the rainy weather made us think about it twice and we opted to have a free afternoon in Lindau after all.
