Edelweiss Tours, based in Oregon, organises German language tours in Switzerland for high school and college students. Our tours are different because we have placed our students, along with their adult supervision, in their very own apartments for an entire week. They will be living with the locals of the country and not in a hotel geared for tourists. This gives the students a better feel of how the locals live and more opportunities to use their German language skills in a real world setting.
We set up teaching scenarios customized by their own instructor. We use our surroundings as a classroom and expect the students to participate. Nothing too overwhelming, but definitely fun! Some of the scenarios we include; grocery shopping, ordering food at a restaurant, purchasing train tickets, asking for directions, etc.
Five minutes up from the lake, five minutes away from the centre of town, LSI Zurich is ideally located. The school has 9 refurbished classrooms, a computer room with free internet access and a student lounge. All our teachers are qualified and experienced in teaching German as a foreign language. Our social activities programme is designed to introduce you to all that Zurich has to offer. Activities include skiing and ice-skating in winter, swimming and sailing in the summer, museum visits and walking tours of the old city and its cafés and boutiques. We offer a special "Zurich and Sport" programme, which allows you to follow a Standard 20 course in the mornings and participate in the sport of your choice two afternoons a week. At weekends you can go hiking, or try river-rafting, snow boarding or mountain biking.
