My stay has been a great experience. I can definitely recommend it to others. The family I stayed with were called Rennate Ehlert and her husband. They were both amazing!

Solid level of German and services

I was quite happy with my stay. A pleasure that the school is so centrally located. The school and its teachers offer a very good and professional standard. The apartment I stayed in was all right, approx. 45 minutes away from the school. To others, I would definitely recommend a residence closer to the school
