There's so much more to language learning than just learning German in a classroom situation. We are giving you the full package. Experience Hamburg and the Hamburgians during our cultural program in the afternoons and evenings. We are taking you to museums, art exhibitions, on guided walks, pubcrawls and outings to the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and other places of interest, as for example the old Hanseatic city of Lübeck. Our Culture Programme with its wide range of activities takes place every week; as many activities are led in German, they give you further opportunity to practice and improve your knowledge of the language.
All activities are structured and guided by a TANDEM Hamburg «specialist» – come along and meet her!
