Language course German in Hamburg

Colón Language Center

Our partner school Colón, was founded in 1952 and has developed into one of Germany’s leading language institutes with 18 language courses on offer. Colón is situated in the Colonnaden district of the city, in a quiet pedestrian zone. The most interesting feature of the school is the specialist language bookstore, the International Bookshop Colón, where modern course materials and foreign language literature are available for purchase. The school has a special range of CD-Rom courses where students can test themselves and continue their language study in their free time.

Important features of our partner German school in Hamburg:

  • Accredited by IALC
  • The courses start every Monday from intermediate level, and specific start dates for beginners
  • 70 modern and spacious classrooms
  • Study room
  • Computer room with internet access
  • Library with study materials (books, DVD’s, video’s)
  • Student’s café
  • Large garden and beer garden
  • Minimum age: 16 years

Social Programme

Alongside the wide range of German language courses, the school regularly organises a variety of enjoyable extra-curricular activities to make the language holiday that little bit more enjoyable.

  • Tours of the city
  • Museum visits
  • Film evenings
  • Regional excursions are particularly popular

Alternatively many students enjoy exploring the city by themselves or with a group of friends or fellow classmates. There is so much to see and do in Munich, that fitting it all in is quite a challenge!

For those who like to combine their German course with sailing lessons, StudyTravel can put you in contact with a sailing school who organises lessons at the Alster, a right tributary of the Elbe river.
