Betreff: Comments on my Language Institute experience

Hello Alexandra and everyone,

I'm finally getting around to answering the request for a short report (in my "Muttersprache") on my experiences with Treffpunkt. I was a student at the school for two weeks in February 2002 (Feb. 4 - 15).

Beginning in November 2001, I was traveling with a backpack for 3 1/2 months throughout mainly Eastern Europe and Turkey. I wanted to include a visit to Germany near the end of my European trip, and I thought that a refresher course in German for a couple of weeks would be fun. I felt that it would add to my cultural experience on this visit to Germany.

A little on my background: I spent three years in Germany in the late '70's as a soldier in the U.S. Army (I'm now 47). I also took a number of German courses while I was studying anthropology at university in the early '80's. But I hadn't had any chance to really use German for twenty years, so I forgot much of what I had learned earlier.

I found the Treffpunkt web site while searching for German Language Institutes before I started my trip. I think that the web site is very clear, helpful and easy to use, and I chose Treffpunkt based on the well-organized web site. All options for courses, as well as accommodation, are well presented and easy to understand.

The evaluation and placement method seems to work well to get students in the correct course based on ability. I think that the time in the classrooms was well utilized and that the instructors did a good job of involving all students in the learning process. I feel that the coursework was well chosen to maximize the learning. There were also interesting and informative topics and material pertaining to such things as German politics, geography, history, dialects, and popular culture. The instructors always included some fun things in the classwork, which is important to keep the work interesting.

I was enrolled in the Intensive Plus schedule, and the additional afternoon instruction did much to help the recollection and improvement of my German grammar. In spite of the fact that I was only a Treffpunkt student for two weeks, I think that I received an excellent refresher course in German. I also feel that the after-class recreational activities organized by the school (e.g. "Kneipe" and "Stammtisch" visits) provided good opportunities to practice German with students and others.

I feel that the accommodation that I had while in Bamberg was excellent. I requested accommodation with someone of my agegroup, and I was placed with a friendly man in his 40's who was a healthcare worker and divorced father. I stayed in a spare bedroom in his spacious apartment that was about a twenty minute walk from the school. The apartment was very comfortable with full kitchen privileges. I was even invited once to join my host and some of his friends for dinner in a pub in a local village.

I feel that I can highly recommend Treffpunkt. The instructors and the coursework are excellent, and picturesque Bamberg has to be one of the best locations in which to learn German. Anyone lucky enough to be student at Treffpunkt should also go out and explore Bamberg and its surroundings a little bit on their own. I have fond memories of wandering around the town, its streets, shops and pubs, as well as walking to the "Dom", the "Michelsberg", and the"Altenburg".

That's about all that I have to write. Thanks again.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen,

Steve Holm

P.S.: I'll attach a photo that I took while traveling in Germany in February -- it's taken at the "Kreidefelsen auf Rügen".
