International House Freiburg

International House Freiburg Our school was founded as LGS Sprachkurse in 1972 and at the beginning of the eighties started to specialise in teaching German to foreign students. In 1983 LGS became member of the International House World Group and since 1991 we are the centre for Teacher Training and Teacher Development for German as a Foreign Language for the whole world organisation. The majority of our teachers have been trained by us. In all these years we have been working constantly on improving our quality and on developing our services and facilities in every aspect. Our main interest has always been to offer our clients high quality language teaching and additional services which make their stay both effective and enjoyable. Teaching Material Teachers have access to a wide range of up-to-date course books and workbooks, supplementary materials produced by IH teachers and video and audio-cassettes. Using these sources, they design course materials suitable for their group or one-to-one students. They do not use a course book. Teaching material is included in the price. First Day * You complete a written placement test in the first two hours. You will be put into your group straight after the break. * At the end of the morning, our social activities organiser will accompany you to lunch. * Afterwards you will be taken on a tour of the town to see some of the sights and find out practical things (post office, travel tickets, transport, phonecards, shopping etc). Self-Study * We recommend all participants make regular use of our computer room. We have several interactive learning programmes which allow you to work on your particular weaknesses (grammar, pronunciation, listening skills etc). Your trainers will be only too happy to advise you, as they know which parts of which programmes tackle your specific problems. * In addition, all participants have access to the Internet and to E-Mail services. Host families * In addition to language training, accomodation is a key part of your stay. That is why we recommend staying with one of our carefully selected host families. You can practise your German daily and also gain an impression of the German way of life. * You decide if you want a lot of contact with the family (in which case you should book breakfast and evening meal) or if you would rather be independent (in which case you should book breakfast only). * The majority of families live in residential areas on the outskirts of the city which can be easily reached by public transport. Travelling time is usually around 20 to 30 minutes. Social and Cultural Activities You should not only learn German successfully but also enjoy your time here with us. To this end, we provide an interesting variety of social and cultural activities for your free time. * Excursions On Wednesday afternoons and Saturdays or Sundays we organize excursions to places of interest in the area around Freiburg. * Film evening On Thursday evenings we show a German film in the school. * Evening at the pub On Tuesday evenings participants and trainers meet in a local pub. * Lunch with the trainer You can choose to have lunch with a trainer and to continue the learning process with discussion outside the classroom. You should book this option when you enrol. * Our social activities organiser is happy to offer advice on how to spend your free time in Freiburg. She can recommend excursions to local places of interest, provide information about the great variety of sporting activities available in Freiburg or explain cultural events on offer.
