University of Bonn Summer Course for German Language, Literature and Cultural Studies

About the Program

The University of Bonn Summer Course for German Language, Literature and Cultural Studies offers participants the opportunity to learn German or to improve existing knowledge. There will be courses for beginners and for advanced students as well as courses dealing with specific terminology. Class sizes are small (12-14 participants), and there will be an assessment test first to ensure that the students' individual needs and expectations are taken into account. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in excursions and other social events as part of their social and leisure programs.

How to apply to a Go Global Summer Program
