Travel with IU South Bend faculty and students to one of the most exciting cities in the world—study German language while learning about the distinct culture of Berlin. Live with a local family and practice German in small, relaxed groups with our partner school, die Neue Schule, at any level—from basic phrases for those with no background in the language on up to classes tailored for students with high proficiency.
This summer 1 course will allow you to develop a new understanding of this part of the world through personal encounters with two cities: Berlin and Arzberg. You will study the history, read the literature, analyze the culture, and experience life in a metropolis and small formerly West German city on the border between East and West.
