Diplomatische Akademie Wien - Summer Course for German Language and Austrian Studies

Entry deadline: 15 May 2022

The Diplomatic Academy’s well-established “Summer Course for German Language and Austrian Studies” will this year take place from 18 July until 11 August 2022 in Vienna.

The programme is designed to meet the special needs and interests of adult learners (minimum age 18 years) from different professional backgrounds from all over the world. The Summer Course combines four weeks of high-quality and varied programme:

  • intensive German language training at different levels of competence (beginners to advanced – in accordance with the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework for Languages);
  • lectures on Austrian politics, history and culture;
  • excursions to national and international organizations as well as cultural institutions in Vienna (United Nations, Museum of Art History, guided city tour, etc.);
  • city research projects to give participants the opportunity to discover the “real” Vienna beyond tourist clichés and practice the new German language skills acquired in the classroom;
  • leisure activities (e.g. a walk through the Vienna vineyards, a visit to a “Heuriger” [Austrian wine tavern] including a wine-tasting as well as Waltz lessons ) and
  • day-trip to a picturesque destination outside of Vienna.
