Language and methods course for tour guides from EU countries
Our program for EU organizations:
The language center Tandem Göttingen is experienced in teaching German as a foreign language to adults. The supporting organisation, the LEB Niedersachsen, is also experienced in teaching tourist guides. In this project, we want to combine our knowledge and offer international tourist guides our educational services.
Our offer: Tourist guides will come to Göttingen and attend a German course with a focus on teaching tourism. This course can e.g. comprise one week, i.e. arrival on Sunday, course program Monday to Friday, departure on Saturday.
In the mornings, the participants attend the intensive course appropriate to their level of German knowledge. We will send you a placement test in advance to sort the participants into a suitable course. In the afternoons, we teach 1.5 hours of methods for tour guides in very practice-oriented courses.
Our additional services: We also support the sending organizations (e.g. tourism associations) with their application in the EU program Erasmus+. This program promotes mobility abroad for those active in adult education so that they can continue their education there.
If the application is approved, the organization can get the whole course refunded by the European Union.
Our offer for the participants includes the following package:
- accommodation and half board in a host family for all participants (each participant will have their own room)
- course fees for both the language course and the method course
- three leisure activities per week, such as a guided tour about the history of Göttingen, a tour through Göttingen´s bars
(with one drink included), or a short hike to a nearby castle (these activities can vary depending on the season and availability)
