Before the F+U Program, I had never in my life studied German, so I was a little surprised to be put on A2 classes, yet I can say that I learnt quite a lot on this four weeks, more than I could've ever anticipated, even if we didn't learn a lot during normal classes, but that's where the intensive courses come in place. Since the afternoon activities, most of the time, were a bit boring, the intensive program was really helpful in teaching the extra German that one may not learn on the regular classes. I really liked the teacher, the classes and the location (even if I stayed in Mannheim), the only thing I'd say that should be changed is the afternoon activities.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Overall it was too expensive for what I got out of it. The teacher was good but she was treating us like kids and not like adults. Some students in the class didn't do their homework and then they couldn't follow what happened in the class. This took a lot of time from the rest of us because the teacher had to explain over and over for the same person. These students should have been moved down a class or just not getting as much attention if they haven't done what's expected of them.
I think we move forward to slowly. Doing one chapter a week is not enough and we could easily have done two chapters a week.
The location is really good.
The facilities were okey, however they gave me the feeling of being back in a class room from my high school which doesn't really inspire me to learn.
I didn't take part in the activities.
I didn't have housing through FU.
Dear Mr. Flink,
Thank you for your feedback – we appreciate your honesty and are very sorry to hear that your experience at F+U Academy of Languages was not fully satisfying.
As you know, we provide four types of intensive German courses for all levels: main course, main course + module course, premium course and super-intensive course. With 20 teaching hours per week, our main course naturally proceeds not as fast as our other intensive course types.
However, it also sounds like you have been in a class with rather weak students and the teacher wanted to make sure every student will be able to complete the level successfully. While this was certainly beneficial for those students having more difficulties with their German studies, we understand that it must have been a frustrating experience for you. Unfortunately, it is not possible to meet all needs of every student within a group course and weaker students tend to influence the pace of the course more than stronger students.
In order to consider the individual student to a maximum even in group courses, we provide the option for all students to switch to a different course of the same level if they are not happy with their teacher and/ or the pace of the course – we are sorry to learn only now – through your feedback – that you did not take advantage of this option as we would have been happy to help you find a course that suits your needs better.
Again, thank you very much for voicing your opinion, and best wishes for your further German studies.

I was studying German in an intensive course for two weeks in this school in the city Heidelberg .
It is very large language school, it has several buildings around the city. There are a lot of students and classes.
I studied at the B1 level. My teacher was Martina. She is a professional, very responsible and demanding teacher. She explained topics well, answered all additional questions, the lessons were interesting and very productive.
For 2 weeks I learned a lot of new grammar, we were talking a lot during the lessons. The tempo of learning was really intense, we had a lot of homework.
There were from 6 to 9 students in the class.
Employees-administration in the main building solved all the questions and problems that were during studying. The academy organizes additional activities for students after classes and on weekends, ask the list of these activities.
I recommend to attend the lecture “My 1st Day at the School” - they will tell you some secrets where can you eat inexpensive, how can you do your homework in the university library in the city center and they give other useful recommendations.
I stayed in a host family in the Eppelheim (a small city near Heidelberg). The road took me 25 minutes by the tram or 30 minutes by the bike (I rented a bike for the 2 weeks). Living in a host family is a very interesting experience!
But I had a small problem with my family, I paid for type of food ‘breakfast and dinner’, but I cooked by myself with products that were in the fridge at home. The host family did not cook for me.
As well as, I would like to say “thank you very much!“ to the employee of this portal www.languageinternational.com Yaroslav. He answered quickly all my questions (believe me, there were a lot of them :)). This site offers a lot of language schools in many countries around the world. I compared their offers and prices with other similar sites, and I chose this portal for buying the course in German. The price was better. And next studying I’ll definitely contact with www.languageinternational.com again.
The Academy itself is rather good, the teachers are decent and the facilities are nice and clean.
I was able to go from a very basic level of German to a proficient one within half a year.
The problem comes with the accommodation department, the room is overpriced, location is good, if you don't mind traveling up to 30 minutes a day for going to the Academy, and another 30 minutes on the way back.
In over half a year I have been living here they couldn't get the WiFi to work properly. They also wouldn't install a Drying machine, although they state clearly on the house rules that we all should have access to one.
The kitchen would only be cleaned 3 times a week, gathering enough dirt and grease to make cooking a very unpleasant experience.
The room itself is too tiny, although it should be noted that it's big enough to accommodate a shower and a fridge.
I do not appreciate the welcoming of the stewarts on monday morning. They were very busy and do not really consider us. Compare to London EC school, the team do not know us, there was no friendliness.
Classroom were very classic.Tables are not usefull for group activities.
Teachers sounds good.
The location was ok.
45mn is not enough for having a real break.
It was a very pleasant experience for me. I did some very basic German courses in Argentina. He wanted to get to know Germany, its customs, people's daily lives. I enrolled in LI for 15 days and stayed with a family. The institution answered all my questions, the teacher was excellent and I felt very comfortable with the other students..
The family was very kind, I've been very well taken care of. The location of the institute allowed me to travel comfortably to get there.
Thank you very much for your review - we are happy to hear you had such a great time at our school in Heidelberg. We would love to welcome you again.
I did like the all. I learned a lot compared to my school because we were just 5 students. I don't see anything negative. I wish I would stay one more week. As I didn't know any German so I had to speak and understand English. I did like to speak with students who came from another countries. The teachers were very nice and they really tried to make me understand.
It was a good experience as it was the first time I follow English courses with people who didn't speak french.
It is located in the central area of Heidelberg. Perfect place to study and enjoy Heidelberg.
My teacher is awesome. She is very enthusiastic and her lectures are clear and easy to understand.
My room was 15 mins from the central by tram clean and big enough. But the room might depends on what you choose.
Thanks a lot for your feedback. We're very happy to hear you had a good time studying at our school and staying in one of our accommodations. We would love to welcome you back any time. Kind regards, Elena.
classes: time of the classes was very suitable , like the small number of student
not like: the change the classes sometimes prom place to place.
I respect the level test but I think my level was higher than the class.
teachers: were perfect
location : very interesting because it is in the main center of the city , easy to find any thing.
facilities: was perfect
activities: I like some of them , there should be more activities focus on the exchange the social experiences between the students and also more visits to Germany cites.
housing: not bad
not like : the cleaning should be every day and more supervision on Cleanliness and quiet after 10 pm.
I studied there for 4 weeks and I was able to learn very much and understand perfect the teachers, because she always explain in German and when you really don't understand she explain you in English
Sometimes the class was boring but then my teacher say lets play in German
In the afternoon I enjoyed the walks a lot and I got to know many interesting places in the city.
Thank you for your review - we are happy to hear you had a great time at F+U Academy of Languages in Heidelberg and would love to welcome you again anytime. Best regards, Elena.
I like the style of teaching as class was useful as it helped me improve and progress in the language.
The classes were nice and the facilities and how it’s spread around Heidelberg. The housing was very nice and comfortable
I really liked the location of my academy, is in a very center of Heidelberg. And I liked my room very much as well.
My Teacher Moritz is so nice and so gut at teaching and explanating grammar rules etc.
But the only think I was upset about is not very good access to the internet(not at all in school and sometimes bad in the room).
But all in all I liked this my journey very very much!
I loved almost everything, everybody was so helpful and cheerful in school I felt very comfortable, also school’s location is very good, but Römerstraße house is a little bit far. You have to buy tickets or bike. I didn’t attend activities because I preferred to spend my time in city. Teacher was also so nice and professional but I didn’t love the classes (don’t have air conditioner etc) Heidelberg is the most relatable city to being student! Thanks for everything.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Classes were good, my teacher was very good too. For me it was comfortable and fast to go to the school from my home. I lived in a five category women residence. It is the highest category. I liked my room. Nevertheless we had only one little bad working fridge and little dirty kitchen for two floors. It was very hard to find place for food in the fridge and it became rotten too fast. When I came to school the first time I saw timetable where I was at a much lower level than I used to be, but I had’t done any tests. I had to dispute about that situation. I had an intensive English, it is 30 hours a week. If I had known that it’s academic hours, I could have taken one more module.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

My English course was very good. I had had a super intensive course for 3 weeks. The course was from 8-00 to 15-30 o'clock. A lunch was 45 minutes. I had a native teacher from Britain. We were speaking a lot and I had a plenty of grammar. If you want you can rent books or buy them from school. I stopped to translate and began understanding. Now I am speaking more fluently.
I was living in campus of school. It's about 20 minutes walk to school. Facilities of campus were enough poor. Campus didn't have a reception and I had to resolve all my issues in school. It wasn't very operatively.
In generally Germany is an interesting country and it course was useful for me.
I think It was very comfortable the stay in all its aspects..I mean, the kindness of people by e-mail and personally, the location (the place for studying and living) was wonderful for visiting the main tourist places of Heidelberg and it had ease for finding places for eating and supply any need, and the price was according with the services, all was very organized, however I would improve the service of foods, either with bigger refrigerator or with services of food accessible for all as students, to the topic of the wash zone (it wasn´t very intuitive) and the internet, It was very defective in the residence. I felt very well traveling in another country alone ... I practiced a lot English in the classroom and outside of this, so I think it was very enriching ... especially when you never before had practiced English with people that don't speak Spanish ...your mother language, this aspect force you to think in English.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

My experience I can say it was unique. Large and spacious class; unfortunately in two weeks I changed three teachers, very good the first, a little less the others. Location and facilities were great. I did not have time and a way to do business. The family accommodation was super.
If I went back, I would always choose your school.
With best regards,
The location of this school is awesome and by public transportation is also convenient to commute between school and the student hostel .
However, they change teachers a lot and the quality of teachers really depends.
Certainly you may ask the Secretary to change your class, which is always super busy and workers are usually not in the situation.
Housing was ok. Teachers were great. Location is also good.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
The expérience in this school was very interesting. We learned english in a small group, each People in the group come from different countries.
The teatcher listened each People, and lesssonswere apropriated to the level.
Moreover, the price were not expensive.
However, i have an advice for the first Day...
Be careful the school is in a center mall, and it is not really specify in the address.
I really recommend this school.
During my stay with F+U Academy of Languages, I stayed with a great host family - who are also very friendly. Furthermore, my teacher was a great teacher, she had a deep grasp of communication and the language, which translated into me. I can definitely say that now I'm much more fluent in German and have learned so much.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Classes were OK, teacher tallented (specially Daniela), location perfect. I did not use accommodation. One week we had 17 students and I think that it was too much. 12 would be perfect.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
so the teachers were interesting, knowing and friendly, the secretaries were constantly stressed, and seemed to have bad communication (i was sent to am römer, when i was supposed to be in donald) the classrooms were a little dull, and either not okay or perfect (directly in the sunlight, no fans, no shutters and lot's of traffic noise, or with a/c, well kept rooms and a good sound resistance to the outside).
the guest houses were alright (maybe 3.5 stars), i think they should be a little closer to the school, but only because the busses and trams cost so much! i paid 25 euros per week just to get to school and back.
It has been a great experience, with a lovely accommodation and an interesting school.
Everything concerning the school was almost perfect, the teachers were competent and always ready to help their students, just as the staff was.
As I said before, the accommodation was lovely but there have been some issues with the fridge: it was too small for a three roommates shared apartment. However, that was the only issue which occurred to me. Ad everything considered, It has been a nice stay.
- Teachers! Janina was great and Gilda was the best private teacher ever!
- Secretaries! Especially, Esra and Joe! There is nothing they cannot help you with!
- Classes! I really improved my German and achieved my goal!
- Location! The School is in the heart of the Old Town. Simply wonderful!
- Accommodation. I was placed at Campus F+U and that was too far for the price. But, still, nothing hard to handle ;)
AMAZING EXPERIENCE! I would definitely recommend F+U!

I signed up for three weeks of German lessons in Heidelberg, sadly, due to health reasons I could only attend the first week so my impression might be a bit distorted.
The classes I had were not fantastic, not due to the lack of optimism in the class (everyone got along well) but because of the books which I find not well made compared to my previous one (I used the Netzwerk in another school, I really recommend that book). Also my teacher was a bit old, and although I cannot blame the school for that, the rhythm of the lesson was kinda slow, but he was always very cheerful which really helped communication.
The city itself is very nice for students, anyone can find quite a variety of anything close by, the housing location couldn't have been better! The apartment itself was very nice, but maybe lacking a bit concerning the information on the facilities given to the students.
In general, I really liked the situation I was able to develop there, it is really easy to adapt to and do everything on foot, no complicated transports or paperwork (at least for me).
The thing I disliked as I said was the structure of the lesson which I think could be easily solved with a new book like Netzwerk or I Ideen. Some more activities in class would also be nice apart from exercises.
It was a good experience but frequent changing of the teachers should be something you need to improve. Some teachers are really rude to some students and the last thing is some teachers doesn't like to do grammar but not all of them are like that. There were a lot of fun and good teachers with them that you would always want to go to class!
The locations of places were good and central except from Römer but its not a big deal.
The housing was really bad, we were eight girls using the same kitchen so in two days the garbage is more than full, one bath for six girls is was always a mess too and too expensive for what the place actually is, I think you have to think more on our comfort instead of money.
It was one of my favorite experiences I ever had. First, my stay in Heidelberg was perfect, because I shared a flat with many friends that I met there and went to classes together. Our teachers were extremely well trained with pedagogic skills and highly oriented to youth education.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Liked: Location and teachers.
Didn't like: School events.
There's no available class for my German level. I don't like their teaching methods. They were not really friendly to new students. I've changed my class twice. In my first two classes, the teachers didn't even ask my name since it is my first time in class. Level of student in class varies and they generally tend to involve old students. It takes time for new students to be involved in speaking or grammar practices.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Dear Özge, we are very sorry you were unable to enjoy your course at our school.
Even though we have courses on all levels from A1 to C1, the individual levels of the students in one class may vary because our courses are on-going and students may join any time. Our classes are open to students of all ages from 16 onwards, and many older students pick the evening classes to be able to join in after work. Of course, it may take some time to adjust for everyone but usually our teachers do their best to accommodate everyone. Students can switch their classes if the level is too high or too low for them, and they can talk to us any time if they are dissatisfied with the teaching, and we always try to help to make sure everyone gets the most suitable course.
According to the evening course coordinator, you were placed in a class corresponding to the result of your level test. Afterwards, you switched your course twice, each time to a lower level. The coordinator said that after you changed your course for the second time, you said that the course fit your level and that the teacher was OK. So we are surprised by your claim that there was no class for your level.
You did not mention your dissatisfaction with the third course to the coordinator. That is indeed a pity because we would have been happy to help you. We are sorry that you felt the teachers were not nice. We will look into this and talk to the teachers in your classes to make sure this does not happen again. We want all our students to feel welcome and appreciated, and we would be happy to welcome you at our school again in the future.
The classes are okay. The teachers in the morning class were okay, but those in the afternoon were super! The location is okay, facilities depends on the student. The activities were not okay. There was nothing interesting for young people. The housing is okay as well.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Dear Andrea, thank you very much for your feedback. It is always important for us to hear what students have to say about their stay at our school so we know which points are good and upon which we can still improve. We are happy you liked your stay in general and sorry that the activities were not interesting for you. We are trying our best to organize a wide range of activities for different kinds of students and offer not only visits to other cities, trips to local amusement parks, tours of Heidelberg and the surroundings but also parties, barbecues etc. We are very interested in any kind of activities you would have liked to have visited and we would very much appreciate it if you could contact us to and let us know! We are always working on becoming better =)
The morning class was a little bit boring but the afternoon class which was a speaking class was really interesting and helped a lot to improve my German. Actually, the teacher in the afternoon class was really sympathetic, the ambiance was relaxed and I think it is the best way to learn.
I felt like I was a little bit deceived since I chose my host family knowing that their house is less than 30 minutes to the school so I thought I would be near the old town. But my host family's home was 35 minutes by bus! However the family was really nice to me and the food was good! I'm really satisfied with my trip. The activities could have been really great if more people had participated.
I think I'll have another experience like this soon in Germany, since I really improved my German and next time I'll stay longer, maybe four weeks at least.
we are glad that you enjoyed your time here in Heidelberg. Thanks for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon!

The activities were nice as well as my classmates.
We could know more about the culture and the food in Germany. The teacher was very patient with us.
For Asian, the pronunciation is quite difficult, but Frau Schmige was very patient in teaching us.
Very beautiful school at the city center and with serious and quality education. Very attentive and addresses the needs of their students, every small problem was solved instantly. If necessary you can change the level, class and teacher more than once. Class size ranges from 8 to 15 students.
The school organizes one or two trips each week (Germany and abroad) and other interesting activities on site.
Two of the teachers (I've had five different teachers in three months), Gilda and Daniela, are really good. Serious, professional, demanding, but also bright and positive, clearly explain the program and do not waste time.
There's a variety of restaurants nearby where you can choose from to have lunch. You could have a good lunch starting from € 3.5.
The rooms in Wieblingen residences are bright, comfortable and spacious kitchen, a large bathroom for every three rooms. The apartment was cleaned twice a week. Every night a security personnel will go around to ensure that there is no noise after 22:00 was observed. They also have two washers and asciugatrici, WiFi network. Also convenient transportation to get to and from school.
Nice experience, I started from zero, and I passed the A1 and A2 levels in three months intensive course. I'm thinking of doing another three months at the end of the year.
we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! We'd be more than happy to welcome you back at F+U :)
The teacher was very nice and helps you to be able to express yourself clearly.
The location of the classroom is not as good as I expect it to be. Sometimes it is a little noisy.
I did not take part in any activities and housing provided by the school.
To be honest I expected something else; something a bit more extravagant but in the end I got (from my limited experience with language schools) the best. First thing that gets you is the places from which your classmates are from. Sometimes it left no option but to speak in German. Teachers and staff after the first week were almost like friends. The main part of the school is smack in the center of Heidelberg, so you immediately have to switch to German. There were a lot of things to do but in terms of what these entailed of there wasn't too much variation and housing was great.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Dear Jeffrey, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay!
I booked the standard course for 12 weeks, and for personal reason, I extended for 3 more weeks.
The way of teaching (in the same level) are very different among different teachers.
Some teacher are very good, some are just general. And some teachers pay more attention to grammar, some pay more attention to speaking. So you have to experience first, and then choose who you like more.
Heidelberg is a great city. I like the old buildings, old town, Neckar river, and small hills around.
The main building of the school is on the main street, and just 1 minute to the tram station.
However, the classrooms are located not only in the main building, but also in different parts of Heidelberg.
Every 1 or 2 weeks we have to change our classroom to another place. It is not convenient!
The classrooms are OK. Some are big, some are small.
The wifi connection (in school and dormitory) are so bad!!!
I like "Spielen Deutsch lernen" and "Japanseminar". I have lots of opportunities to speak and make new friends.
The first month, I stayed with a German family. The family is very good!
After that, I move into school's Dormitory (in old town, Category V). In addition to wi-fi, everything is good.
I don't like the administrative procedures of the school.
Every time I have questions, I have to wait at the front desk, which was always crowded.
When someone sent me a mail, I have to line up for a long time to see a small list posted on the wall.
(I think you can post the list Online, it would be much convenient.)
About the accommodation department.
The staffs of the accommodation department were so impatient and unfriendly without reasons!! Many students felt the same as I did!!
To sum up, I like Heidelberg, my teacher, and my classmates.
But the administration procedures and wi-fi needs to be improved.
Dear Ji Hung,
thank you for this valuable feedback. We are glad that you liked Heidelberg and your stay at F+U, overall. I know that during break times the counter can get crowded as all students with questions are coming at the same time. We are currently developing a new system that allows us to put information online without exposing student data to sources not involved, hence making the administrative procedures more efficient and more easily accessible to our students. We value all feedback and take this as an incentive for further improvement.
I wish you all the best for your future studies!
My stay in Heidelberg and my course at F+U Academy Language Heidelberg was such a short time – only two weeks including two holidays (Christmas Day and New Year’s Day), which meant practically only 8 days. Still, it was a really excellent experience because of the excellent quality of teachers as well as the environment. In terms of helpfulness, the school staff and host family were excellent as well. Heidelberg is a beautiful town. I wish I could have stayed longer, and I hope to have another chance to study there again!Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...

I was very pleased with the school and with the teacher who had been very good in involving us. For accommodations, I was not satisfied mainly for two reasons: First, the house was almost 40 minutes from the center of Heidelberg – you had to take a train and a bus. Secondly, I specified that I was going to take a course in English, but I was placed with a family where the mother did not speak a word of English, and communication was not present.

Regarding the course - I must say that in general, even just having two weeks was effective, and the learning material was quite demanding. Both of my teachers for private and group classes were enthusiastic and helpful, although I heard from other students that some of them got some weak teachers. Also, the balance between grammar and general linguistic studies was uneven, so I had to catch up with those in my private classes. I can not remember the name of my main teacher, but in the classes at least i learned a lot of new vocabulary every day and the lack of grammar was compensated by a lot of speaking practice.
So overall I am happy that I attended your course and I would classify it as a very effective language school.
I only had one week of German course, so I only learned the absolute basics, but still it was quite good. The courses are very interactive and the groups are small which encourages you to speak German a lot. Unfortunately the secretary and organisation were a bit chaotic. I followed the language course in a week when you could normally start at the beginning of the course, but when I arrived I ended up in a group who was already halfway the course. Also, the online test gives you a much higher level than your actual level, so you have to watch out.
The teachers were very good as well as the location (in the absolute center of Heidelberg). Every evening there was an activity organised by the school. I stayed with a friend who lives in Heidelberg, so I have no idea about the housing.
I certainly recommend Heidelberg as a city to study German, and I think F&U is a good language school. But you have to look out that you can join a class that starts with a course so you don't end up in a group that is already halfway of the course, because you miss a lot that way.
What I most liked, I will say, was the city itself. Heidelberg is a very nice place, with nature and many attractions. This city is not too far from others like Karlsruhe or Frankfurt. Globally, I liked all the teachers I had and the location of my residence. The location was very practical - not too far from the city center but far enough to be quiet.
The problems I saw are:
- The school isn't well organised but it passed for me;
- The maids didn't clean the public areas of the residence well. It happened many times that they didn't clean the bathrooms.
But in the end, it was a good experience :)
I liked all my teachers. The location was good. Actually, I liked everything about Heidelberg, but there weren't any activities.
I'd also like to thank the family who I stayed with - they were lovely, so my accommodation was very comfortable.
Thank you for your great feedback! It's great that you liked your classes and your host family.
We offer a weekly leisure activity program with one or two activities per day (trips outside of town on Saturdays). The activities are posted on our Facebook and throughout the school. In case you come back you should definitely check out the the activity program, the students really enjoy it.
In general, I liked everything. The facilities, teachers and especially Magdalena teacher. There were ten nationalities in my room and we were twelve students. They were fantastic. There was a large difference in age (I'm 58 years old) but they were super.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Thank you for this great feedback! We will let Magdalena know how much you enjoyed your lessons with her.
F+U Academy of Languages Heidelberg. This is a great school, where can study German. I find this place awesome and also, I'm happy, that I visited this school. Heidelberg is very comfortable and beautiful town, where every person can do what they want.
About studying, I can say, that quality of teaching in F+U Academy is also good! I was there 11 weeks and I saw the level of studying there. I had 5 teachers. 2 of them were great, best teachers I have ever seen. And another 3 were also good.
So, I recommend this place for all guys, who want to try this school, who want to try to study there, I'm happy about this academy. Thank you F+U for good emotions and also thanks for my certificate B2-C1 ;)
Thank you for this review! It is great to hear that you liked your stay. It would be interested to know which teachers you were with so that we can forward your feedback to them, so feel free to let us know.
I really enjoyed the class first of all because of the small number of students (maximum 5 persons each lesson). Teachers were friendly and helpful and every lesson was clear and interesting. I liked the location (in the main street of the city center and easily reachable with the bus). Just a negative thing: it was not clear at the registration that books were not included in the original payments. Nevertheless, it has been a great experience for me.Näytä yksityiskohdat » Lue lisää...
Thank you for sharing! We are sorry to hear that you were not aware of the extra charges of the books. As some students choose to rent them rather than buy them we keep this option open and don't include the books in the fees. We will try to make this more clear in the future.

Heidelberg, entinen Palatinaten pääkaupunki, sijaitsee kainiissa Nackar laaksossa, Odenwaldin eteläpuolella. Se erottuu joukosta erityisen leudolla ilmastollaan. Vuosien aikana, Heidelbergin kauneus on vetänyt puoleensa runoilijoita, maalareita, tiedemiehiä, ja tänä päivänä se on yksi Saksan kirjotetuimmista kaupungeista. 1800-luvnu alussa Neckarista tuli tärkein Saksan romantiikan keskus. Tähän aikakauteen yhdistetään Arnim, Bretano, Goethe ja Eichendorff. Jopa tänään Saksan vanhin yliopisto (1386) viehättää opiskelijoita ja on yksi tärkeimmistä yliopistoista Euroopassa. Times Higher Education Supplement (THES) yliopisto valittiin Saksan tärkeimmäksi yliopistoksi.

Books are an optional fee in general as students can also rent them here. The book prices are per level (so we put per course).
We can still accept the student if his level is lower, but he will not be able to attend this specific course (exam preparation). Instead we will place him in a standard group of adequate level until he reaches the level required for the exam prep. The price per week is the same and he can switch as soon as he is ready.
The invitation letter will also include passport copies of our director and executive director as well as a trade register excerpt.
The payment can then be done via credit card (we will send a form) or bank transfer. In the latter case we need the proof of payment before sending the invitation letter.
In Turner or Carl-Bosch (both category IV) each room has a private bath room
Double or single room is possible
Cancellation is possible without cancellation charges until two weeks before the course starting date.
We don’t have any evening courses running in any of our centers.
Come in a little bit earlier for her test or if she has any questions. The student should not be surprised if there are quite some students at the office/counter with questions or wanting to get their books etc. She doesn’t need to bring anything special. She will need something to take down notes.
Arriving two nights earlier than planned is not always possible. You must know that our accommodation always starts on a Sunday and ends on a Saturday. We can offer one extra night at the beginning and / or at the end of the stay. Arriving on Friday wouldn't be possible as other students are in the host family.
Consequently, we can offer two extra nights only for hotel bookings.
Both accommodation are not category I, they´re category III, IV or V. (please check our brochure). Please note that we only can confirm a category, but not an specific accommodation.
1. Yes, this is possible, can however not be guaranteed. Some families can take in more than one student at once. If we lack the host family bookings (most of our students choose residence) there may not be other students in the family, though. We try to be fair and spread the students among the families, instead of giving them all to the same families.
2. There is no official curfew for the students. It will depend on the family. Especially if a family has small children or works early in the morning the host students should be very quiet when they come home late. You chose junior program, but didn’t specify an age. Like this it is hard to tell when the student should be home.
The minimum age for students to take our courses and stay in our accommodations is 16 (with their parents’ consent). At this age they are allowed to stay with a family or in a residence/apartment. The host family does in this case not take over any responsibility and the students are treated like adults.
With the junior program it is a little different as the families actually look after the kids. Also, on the weekends full board is included. Because of the increased responsibility and additional meals we pay the families a higher compensation.
So if we could somehow just distinguish between regular bookings (the prices we had before) and bookings with the junior program (the 280,-€) that would be good. It’s program-specific rather than age-specific.
There are options in staying in residence or apartments:
Residence, cat V, shared kitchen and bathroom, close to school (max. 1 km), three people
Apartment, cat I, private kitchen and bathroom, 4 km from school, three people
The prices are per room resp. per apartment / week, not per person.
1. Depending on the university, it will take anywhere from 4-12 weeks. Provisional admission is usually not granted for medicine, but we can send out applications for related subjects, such as biology or chemistry. The student is free to reapply to any university after he has passed the TestDaF or DSH exam. The service includes 4 application documents for 4 German universities. Additionally there are also processing fees for the universities, e.g. Uni-assist fee.
Please note that we can give the support but we cannot guarantee you any success in university placement.
2. The start of the course date can always be changed, depending on the circumstances, such as delay of university placement or visa issues.
1. Yes, we can. F+U Academy of Languages ist the largest TestDaF examination Centre in Europe! So he can do the test in our school
2. We have a cafeteria in the school only in July and August, but in the same building are three cafeterias, the university cafeteria is only 500 m from school, too!
If you mean TestDaF, yes we are a test center and she can take the exam with us.
Unfortunately, dongs or other animals are not allowed in our student residence.
A homestay with a dog is a bit difficult to arrange. The families who may allow a dog in their home, usually have a dog themselves. And if the dogs will get along well with each other can nobody tell.
Unfortunately, we cannot confirm that all rooms with category 4 have a private bath room, in some residences students have to share a bath room(s) with other students.
We´re able to guarantee a private bathroom with a category VI.
