Summer Youth German Courses

Spend your summer in Heidelberg!


During the months of July and August we offer Summer Youth Courses for young adults from 12 to 18 years. These courses are an excellent opportunity to dive deeper into the German language while also enjoying the beautiful summer in Heidelberg. The Summer Youth Courses are a unique learning opportunity because students are able to take advantage of immersive classroom experiences in the mornings followed by enjoyable leisure activities in the afternoons.

The classes take place from Monday until Friday from 9:00 am until 12:15 (20 hours a week). Our classes are classes of mixed age, which means that our Summer Youth Course participants will be in one class with our “normal” all-year participants. We have made very good experience with that, as the “older” (means, students who are already longer in Heidelberg) often take the new ones under their wings and help them with both the German language as well as the where-to-find-what in Heidelberg.

Leisure activities take place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 2 pm until 5:30 pm, but those times are also flexible depending on what type of activity is scheduled.

During your time at Alpha Aktiv, you will be living with one of our carefully chosen host families. We are working together with each of them for several years now and you will definitely feel comfortable there! You will be having breakfast and dinner every day together with your host family, which will give you the chance to practice your German and to learn more about the German culture!

Here you can find our current brochure for the Summer Youth Course, giving you even more information.
