picnic & sports

Extracurricular activities:

In the afternoons and evenings various cultural and social events take place:

such as sports, choir, cooking evenings, movie nights, dance evenings and different kind of parties. Participants can present their home countries on so-called “international cultural evenings” and get to know the countries of the other participants. There will also be a hike to a look-out tower with a picnic and sports festival afterwards as well as a guided town walk.

On top of this participants can join a wide variety of language tutorials in the afternoons and evenings to further practise their different skills: oral German/conversation, phonetics, literature & creative writing as well as mini-projects on different topics
(i.e. proverbs, ordering in a café, typical German, migration, et al.).
