The junior course of the Sprachschule zum Ehrstein is being held every year in July and August. Students can join the course for two, three or four weeks.
The course is perfect for students aged 10 to 17. Also, participants will be divided by age (10 to 13 and 14 to 17) and by their current level of German.
There are 3 levels: Beginners with previous knowledge (1-2 years of German in school), intermediate learners (3-5 years of German in school) and advanced learners (6-8 years of German in school).
