Discover the cultural riches of Berlin, one of the most exciting capitals of Europe, as well as Munich and Hamburg, as you learn or improve your German.

Students fly first to Munich for a weekend of exploration before taking the high-speed train to Berlin. Students then spend two weeks in Berlin, taking morning classes at the world-renowned Goethe Institute and exploring the German capital in the afternoon and evening. Lodging in Berlin is in private homes organized by the Goethe Institute. At the end of the course, students spend a few days in Hamburg, Germany’s second-biggest city. Course goals include growth in intercultural sensitivity, gains in mastery of German, and increased understanding of various religious, political, and cultural phenomena of Germany. Students will be assessed on their participation in the Goethe Institute courses, director-led excursions, and the submission of at least two analytic journal entries focusing on cultural issues.
