Scuole in Germania con alloggio in una famiglia

Verrai inserito all’interno di una scuola superiore pubblica tedesca e sarai ospitato da una famiglia locale che ti sarà di grande supporto durante l’intera durata del programma. I vantaggi delle scuole diurne con famiglie ospitanti, rispetto alle scuole private con convitto (boarding schools):

  1. Sono più economici delle scuole con convitto
  2. È possibile soggiornare un anno intero, ma anche per soggiorni più brevi come 2 o 3 mesi.

About the Schools

We place international students at Gymnasien = a type of secondary school that leads up to university and is reserved for very good students. The curriculum is rather academic, with two foreign languages plus math and science courses. 

Ca. 30 % of German students attend this type of secondary school (more about Gymnasien in Germany). If you book the select program, you can select the city (i.e. Berlin, Bayreuth, Bremen), but not a specific school. To give you an idea what the schools look like, below the websites of 2 schools, that cooperate with GLS:

About the host families

All families have been inspected by GLS. Some families have sons and daughters, who do an exchange program as well: While their kids go to school in Canada, France or Argentina, they are happy to welcome an exchange student going to school in Germany. The families live within easy reach of the school that you attend. They provide a single room and full board. More about host families in the FAQ section
