Program Description

This course offers the opportunity to learn and practice the German language while traveling in Germany. We will start with one week of 2-hour lessons each day at the University of Manitoba. The group will then meet in Berlin on July 27 and spend the next 5 days in Berlin and Weimar, visiting sites such as the Bundestag and Canadian Embassy, followed by 4 weeks at the University of Greifswald with 3-hour lessons each weekday and opportunities to explore the University, city, and surrounding area. In addition to planned activities, students will have time to explore sites themselves and participate in additional optional weekend excursions.
