Since 1988, the KIIS summer program in Munich has offered students advanced German-language study in this great Bavarian city and its beautiful environs. Students develop their language skills and experience daily life in Germany, including a homestay in a charming Munich suburb.
The Munich program provides students the best of both worlds: the comfort, security, and familiarity of small-town living alongside the rich cultural heritage of big-city Munich life. The heart of Munich— with its the pedestrian mall around Marienplatz and the Viktualienmarkt and world-renowned museums, theaters, and concert halls— swirls with activity, yet one is never far from the tranquility of Munich's great park, the English Garden, or the relaxed atmosphere of the city’s many beer gardens. The individual homestay with a German family in a quaint Munich suburb provides students another taste of Bavarian life, a refreshing contrast to hustle and bustle of the city center.
The program lasts five and a half weeks. Course offerings comprise advanced language instruction and multiple opportunities to explore the cultural history of Munich and Bavaria. On average, classes are held four days a week, with most Fridays and weekends free. The program includes a weekend stay in Nuremberg, an excursion to Neuschwanstein, and a ticket to the medieval festival in Kaltenberg. Two long weekends provide independent travel opportunities for students to visit more distant German-speaking places such as Berlin, Vienna, Zurich, and other European cities.
Past participants consistently describe the unique homestay experience as the hallmark of the Munich program. Students learn firsthand about daily life in Germany, its institutions, social customs and cultural practices. Students typically take part in family activities, going to parties and outings, attending cultural and sporting events, socializing at the bi-weekly programStammtisch, and sometimes taking weekend trips with their families.
Please note: Students wishing to participate in the Munich program should have completed at least 12 hours of college-level German (or the equivalent) at time of departure.
