The Carl Duisberg Training Center Radolfzell
The Training Center in Radolfzell has an informal, personal atmosphere. For many of our young German learners, it is their first time abroad, so our top priority is to provide them with full-service care and full-time supervision.
Our training center is located in a charming villa right next to the “Stadtgarten”, a beautiful public park, with a view of the historic old town. In addition to eight classrooms, there is a computer room, a small cafeteria, a party room and a lovely courtyard with a garden.
Radolfzell is situated in one of the most beautiful holiday regions in the South of Germany, close to the Swiss border. As it is directly situated by the lake it is ideal for all kinds of trips and sports. The vehicle free historic district with its large market square and the late gothic minster, the intimate restaurants and street cafes, the modern shops as well as the lake promenade, give this small town its special Southern flair.
Not only the magnificent surroundings, but also almost 1,300 years of history make Radolfzell an exciting holiday destination. The 30,000 inhabitants of this lively town are friendly and open minded, and everything is within a convenient distance.
Radolfzell on Lake Constance is a starting point for many trips and sport activities. Fun and adventure is just waiting for the young and old - sailing, surfing, golf, tennis, beach-volleyball, football, rock climbing and riding to name just a few. Also in the summer a little cultural variety is added with open air concerts by the lake, and the Summer Academy master classes for young musicians from all over the world. A very special experience is brought by the multitude of traditional festivals around the year. From the Alemannischer Carnival in winter, the Hausherren Festival with its Mooser Water Procession in July to the Bülle Festival in Autumn.
Thanks to excellent transport connections it’s easily possible to take a day trip to Freiburg, Stuttgart, or the Black Forest as well as to the Europa-Park in Rust. The Swiss towns of Schaffhausen and Zürich are also not too far away. For art and art history lovers, the university town of Constance, with its picturesque alley ways, offers an excellent array of museums. A visit to the flower island of Mainau is an unforgettable experience not only for nature lovers. Its perfect situation and familiarity make Radolfzell an ideal place to stay and actively learn a language.
The minimum age for the Intensive Course 24+6 is 16, in Radolfzell 15. Participants with prior German language skills may begin a German course on any given Monday. The start dates for beginner courses are listed in the brochure.
The Intensive Course 24+6 provides you with the German language skills required for further education, to achieve your career goals and broaden your horizons. In our short-term courses, starting at a duration of one week, you acquire basic knowledge of German or develop your existing language skills in a targeted manner. Prospective university students or those preparing for a professional qualification in Germany can systematically build up the necessary German language skills to meet specific needs in our long-term courses and reach the required language level in best time.
In addition to group language training, the “Lernstudio” is a key component of the Intensive Course 24+6. You may select from the following learning options:
• Learning with a tutor
Carl Duisberg Centren provides you with any and all support to achieve your specific goals. You may study independently or with instruction and seek out help with your homework. Learning a language with others is particularly effective for promoting the social aspect of foreign language learning.
A variety of language learning materials are available at the Carl Duisberg “Lernstudio”. Our experienced trainers conduct workshops and organize projects to help you make the most of your time.
The afternoon program at the “Lernstudio” combined with group language training materials and the leisure program are the ideal language learning combination. The new material that is introduced in the mornings is then effectively put into practice in the afternoons.
There are no classes on holidays. Classes that fall on holidays will not be rescheduled. For exact dates please inquire at the Carl Duisberg Training Center of your choice and/or visit our website.
Radolfzell on Lake Constance is a popular resort destination and a great place for kids to spend their holidays. At our German language camps for kids and teens ages 11 to 14, Carl Duisberg Centren combines German language courses with fun activities.
At the Football, Dance and Summer Camps, participants spend the morning learning German, followed by an afternoon of activities. The camp language is mostly German, which gives kids an informal atmosphere to directly apply and build upon what they have learned. The group activities in the afternoon are also a great way to make friends and develop team spirit.
Accommodation and Meals
Participants stay at an adventure farm. Meals are provided. Please see page 5 for more information.
Language training takes place in the morning from Monday to Friday. Course participants are divided into groups of a maximum of 15 students according to their language level. A short language placement test is given at the start of the course.
In the afternoon program (football, dance or outdoor summer activities), camp participants join an international group, including German kids enrolled in other language courses. There are various sports programs for different levels, from beginners to advanced players and we offer day trips on Saturdays.
Holiday Courses for Teens from 15-17 ys.
Our two holiday courses are designed for teens ages 15 to 17 and combine intensive language training with a diverse activity program. Students may choose to enjoy the picturesque, snow-filled Alps in the Winter Holiday Course or discover the Lake Constance region’s many outdoor sports activities in the Summer Holiday Course.
Program participants stay at the Carl Duisberg guesthouse or with homestay families. Please see page 5 for more information.
Our experienced language trainers plan lively lessons for participants in international groups, giving regular feedback on individual progress. Language course assignment is based on placement test results. In addition to group language training, students apply and deepen their language skills twice a week at the “Lernstudio”, where tutors and teachers are on hand to assist and give advice.
There is a new activity program each week, providing lots of opportunities in the afternoon and on the weekend to explore Germany, get to know the culture and speak German in “real life” situations. There are day trips to the state capital Stuttgart and the college town Freiburg. Sunday is always a free day.
Summer Holiday Course
Our Summer Holiday program celebrates the great outdoors. Program participants enjoy swimming, paddle boating or stand up paddleboarding, cycling and soaking up the sun at a game of beach volleyball by the lake.
Winter Holiday Course
There are plenty of fun ways to practice your German in our Winter Holiday program, even if it’s stormy and snowing outside. Program participants can try ice skating, sledding, play table tennis, go to the movies, visit a museum, go bowling or play (indoor) beach volleyball. The program highlight: an all-day skiing trip to Austria or Switzerland.
