Combining the Pleasant with the Useful on Vacation in Heidelberg


Educational tourism is booming in Heidelberg - language courses for German and English are especially popular

August 19th, 2014 - Heidelberg is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Germany. In addition to sightseeing, however, many visitors are eager to further their education. In summer, an ever-growing number of "language tourists" attends the courses at F+U Academy of Languages in Heidelberg. German is not the only language in demand; English courses are also increasingly popular with the participants, who hail from over 100 different countries.

In addition to its usual course program, F+U Academy also offers various special courses during the summer. Popular choices like French, Italian, or Spanish are still on offer; moreover, intensive courses in languages like Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, or Russian provide more exotic options.

In July and August, the school is happy to welcome children and teenagers from all over the world. At F+U they can learn German in the morning and take part in varied, age-appropriate leisure activities in the afternoon. The program includes visits to the zoo and to museums, but also activities typical for Heidelberg, such as boat trips on the river Neckar, and picnics on its banks.

We also offer numerous extracurricular activities for our adult students. Among them, seminars on the Germany's language and history, as well as games like "Taboo", which further the students' language skills, take center stage. Other popular activities include trips to Heidelberg's surroundings and excursions to other cities, a chess seminar, an international "Stammtisch" (get-together), and a weekly orientation tour of Heidelberg.

Each summer, up to 2000 language students, around 200 of them juniors, get to take part in these programs. Among those happy to receive these visitors are also around 150 host families. In addition to the school's approximately 450 dorm rooms, it is these families in particular who help F+U to manage the onslaught of language tourists in the summer by allowing the students to experience authentic German eating and living habits, and offering them a home away from home.
