I am a 3rd year canadian university student studying in Trier, Germany for one year. I never thought I would be here. Before i’d left I took intoduction to german in university. As far as learning the language by coming to germany, it’s the best way to do it. I’m fairly certain that most of the universities here have ‘Daf’ deutsch als fremdsprache or ‘german as a foreign language’. Besides, almost everyone here can speak some english. If you want furture details let me know.

Every August the Universitaet Tuebingen hosts an international Sommerkurs Sprachprogramme – i went there after backpacking for two weeks and it was the most amazing experience – i went in having taken only german101 and learned so much, made friends from around the world, and my speaking ability improved immensely, unbelievable when i think it was only 4 weeks. You will meet all types. The program has fieldtrips, tutorium, and Tuebingen is a great little town. (about 1 hr south of Stuttgart, 3hrs by train to munich, zurich, etc)
hope this helps you

People can go to www.daad.de and look at summer schools. Every year, practically all german universities and applied science universities open their doors to people from all over the world to go study german for a couple of weeks. In summer 2005, I went to Aachen and it costed 620 euros for almost 4 weeks, accomodation included.
