Statements from former students
Jeppe – “It was super cool to be in high school for the four months – you get a very special relationship and you get to know people in a very unique way. You sleep, be taught, eat, spend leisure time and party under the same roof. we came to Austria we were already well equipped both culturally and linguistically. ”
Jacob – “I was really happy with my stay in college. You are surprised by how many sweet people there can be in one place. Everyone was just so friendly and I think it proves that if you get to know people well, then you will not be disappointed with what you find out. Otherwise, skiing is just a good appeal for lovely people. ”
Karina – I don’t know what to expect before starting on the ski instructor line. But one thing is for sure; It was much fatter! Austria was fantastic. I had very positive experiences with my employer/employers. I felt that if I had questions or anything I would like to talk about, I could always say that.
Jonas – “If you only had a few German lessons during the four months we went to the Baltic Sea High School and therefore can understand just a little German, then it will come quickly. I already spoke much better German after just two weeks, and it only gets better with time because you now have no choice but to speak German. ”
