During the summer courses most of the afternoon lessons are held in the form of workshops. Apart from the beginners' classes, that have regular afternoon lessons.
For all other classes we offer a rich choice of workshops, which always have to be chosen according to the students' respective language level.
Here are some examples of our latest afternoon workshop topics:
... and also some other workshops we had in the years before to get a glimpse:
|Wolfgang Amadé Mozart - Superstar||Intermediate II|
|A workshop for everybody interested in Mozarts life and music. Find out more about Mozart, his time and the monarchs that ruled during that era. Get to know his friends, important women in his life as well as his rivals. Join us on a time-travel journey to the Salzburg and Vienna of the 18th century.|
|Austrian literature||Intermediate II|
|There are many ways to get to know a country; one is through its literature. What and how Austrian authors write and what they think about their country will be dealt with in this workshop by means of text extracts of recent Austrian literature.

|You are, what you eat! A culinary journey 'round the world.||Intermediate I|
|Cross-cultural studies go through the stomach. To eat and drink are central needs in our life. In this workshop students find out what significance eating has in different countries and cultures and how different table manners and eating habits are. Foreign culinary consumptions will be explored and examined, i.e. where does the saying "love goes through the stomach" come from. Of course a real dinner will be cooked as well and at the end a sort of cookery book, every student can take home with, will be produced.|

In July our students often make a trip to Venice. They are always enchanted by its beauty.
A stiflingly hot day, but the trip was worthwhile.
