Language course German in Josefstal

GLS (juniors)

Our partner school, GLS, organizes a program for juniors and children between 7-14 years of age in Josefstal, a traditional Bavarian village, located about 50 kilometers from Munich, in the Bavarian Alps. It is a well-known location for German children and teenagers, who love to spend their holidays here. The program takes place in a summer camp located in a fantastic natural setting 800 meters above sea level. The school regularly organizes excursions to Munich to explore the city with the monitors of the program.

From mid-July, German children and teenagers also participate to the camp (learning English), making it easier for the other students to practice German.
