F+U launches new suite of programmes

F+U Academy of Languages Heidelberg, Germany, has announced new junior and senior programmes, as well as adding two new halls of residence to its accommodation portfolio.

The German language provider has unveiled a new Senior Course 50+, offered from A2 to B2 level and available for a maximum of eight weeks.


Katja Tenkoul at F+U Academy of Languages, told StudyTravel Magazine, "The main reason we've introduced a senior course is that everyone feels more comfortable learning with people more or less the same age, and customers have repeatedly asked for a group course with older people."


She added that the course comes with two special cultural activities per week suited to students' interests.


Meanwhile, junior group programmes are also now offered year round in both German and English, for children aged six-to-15 years.


Katja explained, "There has been increased demand for year-round group courses for children and young people from agents from various countries where the school holidays are at different times than in Germany. For example, schools from China asked if we could run courses for their students in the winter. So we decided to offer a programme where groups can book courses at any time of the year."


Regular F+U junior programmes for individual students will still be provided during July and August.


The school has also announced two new halls of residence, set to open in 2018. "They are in the process of being completely renovated so we can offer our students state-of-the-art facilities. They're located in the middle-class Südstadt neighbourhood south of Heidelberg's old town, close to the urban forest and mountainside, with convenient public transport nearby," Katja said.


F+U Academy of Languages was the winner of the StudyTravel Star German Language School at the 2017 StudyTravel Star Awards, a unique, peer-acknowledged awards scheme in which agents vote for schools and schools vote for agencies.
