A Summer of Learning and Fun: The 2016 Junior Programme at F+U Academy of Languages


F+U Academy of Languages Heidelberg is looking back at an absolutely successful Junior Programme in 2016. With a total of 230 participants spending one or more weeks at our language school in Heidelberg in July and August, we were lucky to welcome children and teenagers from almost 40 nations, among them Italy, China, Venezuela, France, the United States, Azerbaijan and South Korea. Moreover, forty young learners from Algeria aged 8 to 15 attended a one-week German course. For almost all of them, it was their first stay in Germany.

Since 2007, F+U Academy of Languages Heidelberg has been offering this summer programme with daily German and English classes in international groups, attracting children and teenagers between the ages of 6 through 15 from all over the world. Lessons are held by experienced teaching staff and complemented by exciting leisure and sports activities in the afternoons. The programme also offers lunch at school as well as accompaniment to and from school for younger children. Host families are available for juniors aged 12 or older, and F+U Academy of Languages is also able to provide accommodation in apartments for families who wish to accompany their children to Heidelberg.

As every year, the 2016 leisure and sports programme for juniors included numerous activities ranging from origami and calligraphy classes to kickboxing and yoga in the F+U gym to playing games on the Neckar river bank, which is a popular leisure ground for Heidelbergers. There were also excursions to the zoo, to Heidelberg and Schwetzingen castles, a falconry and weekly trips to the swimming pool. On the last day of the Junior Programme, everybody went to the water playground on the Neckar to refresh themselves in the summer heat and get a big scoop of ice cream.

Every week, we asked our juniors to draw or write feedbacks on their language course and stay in Heidelberg. Here are some of the best:

Ismail, Saudi Arabia: “The food and activities were great. I’m learning a lot and having fun.”

Sofía, Colombia: “I’m back at F+U, like last year. It was really nice. I’ve learned a lot and had a lot of fun.”

Kamila, Kyrgyzstan: “I love my class. I love my friends and teachers, they’re funny.”

Amadeusz, Poland: „I was in a good class and learned a lot. The activities are super cool. I’ve found many friends and our teacher is great!”

We’re happy our juniors had lots of fun this year and hope to welcome many new children from all countries in 2017!
