German Courses for Kids in Germany

Company : Humboldt-Institut
Location : Germany
Duration: < 1 week to 3 months
Approx Costs: 1000 to 3000+ € Euro

The Humboldt-Institut offers German language courses and summer camps for children, starting at age 9 and, in some schools, ranging up to the age of 14.

Our schools for children are all located amidst a beautiful landscape, either in very picturesque little villages and towns, or on the periphery of larger cities. This way we can guarantee for the absolute safety of our young students.

Our staff will try to create a feeling of being one big international family at the Humboldt-Institut, where all students are integrated, and where German is the only language spoken. Having a chance to practice the target language all day long, even outside of the classroom, will speed up the learning process incredibly, and increase the motivation of the students.

Special Programs for Kids

Beside our regular intensive German language courses we offer special programs with emphasis on additional highlights. For Juniors we provide the following:

  • School Transition Courses
  • Secondary Education in Germany
  • German for School Classes and Groups
  • German Language plus Horseback Riding



Residential Schools
In our residential schools students stay on the same campus where they have their lessons, which has, of course, many advantages for our course participants: they have all meals together, spend the afternoons, evenings and weekends together - hence it is very easy for them to make a lot of new friends from different countries in a short time.

Our students usually share a room with one or several other students, as most of our schools have 2-4-bed rooms, either with shared or en-suite facilities.

We are careful about choosing roommates according to several rules which have proven to be successful: we will match each junior with someone of the same German language level, so that they can practice their newly acquired skills on equal terms, i.e. without frustrating neither the more advanced, nor the less trained student. We also make sure that the roommates have similar age. We also avoid to put two native speakers of the same language in one room, so that the students will hopefully have to use German as their language of communication with their roommate.

Our course fees for children always include full board, i.e. we serve them breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, as well as a snack or some fruit during the breaks. Our kitchen staff is used to catering to this age group and offers tasty and healthy food, while finding a balance between typical German and international dishes. We can also provide meals for students with allergies, dietary or religious food restrictions (e.g. for Muslims).

Humboldt-Institut German Courses for Kids in Germany Reviews

I loved the course

I have been to study at the Humboldt-Institut twice and both times were indescribable! The courses improved my German skills. The teachers were interested in their job. I’ve met a lot of friends from different countries. All staff was helpful and we had a lot of fun together. Conditions of the camp are the best. Rooms are comfy, food is delicious. I recommend these courses, because you can spend time productively and have a lot of fun!
