German Language Courses in Salzburg, Austria

The Summer Scene is More Than Music

Salzburg, Austria
Salzburg, Austria is a beautiful town and a great place to learn German while having a chance to hear great music where Mozart was born and often resided.

What better place is there to study German than in a picturesque city in the heart of Europe with great language schools and exceptional recreational opportunities? Salzburg is not only the city of “The Sound of Music” and of Mozart; wherever you happen to stroll in Salzberg you are surrounded by historic buildings and cathedrals, not to mention some of the oldest breweries and beer gardens in Central Europe.

Of course you will chance upon statues and museums dedicated to the great Mozart.

The “Sommer Szene,” a series of summer cultural events, feature performances of modern dance and music as an alternative to Salzberg’s famous classical music festival.

In fact, there is such a variety of cultural and recreational activities combined with German courses to choose from that potential students need to do some research before booking. How much instruction do you get for your money? How big are the classes? What is the teaching method? What learning materials are used?

Berlitz School, in the city’s main historic thoroughfare, the Getreidegasse, uses the same materials and methods as in Berlitz schools worldwide. So you can easily begin a course in the U.S. and continue on a higher level in Austria or vice versa. Course packages are flexible but most include at least 20 lessons per week. Berlitz Salzburg also offers a pilot project that combines language learning with golf or tennis.

Deutsch Studio, a small language school with highly individualized courses, compiles instructional materials individually for the student’s skill level and learning goals. Instruction is usually one-on-one and combined with cultural activities (theater, concerts, exhibits). Deutsch Studio offers preparation courses for the Österreichisches Sprachdiplom, the Austrian Language Diploma in German, an internationally recognized certification.

Inlingua, a language school from Switzerland, follows the same “Inlingua Direct Method,” with intensive use of support materials, in its schools worldwide. Courses are flexible and depend on the students’ needs. Inlingua also offers referrals to hotels, guesthouses, and host families.

Actilingua offers a German language course in Vienna that offers trips to nearby Salzburg as part of its program.

The Goethe-Institut has a branch in Salzburg offering a variety of courses to youth ages 9-21.

AIFS offers a Study Abroad in Salzburg, Austria program for college students with German language courses for credit.
