Student Testimonials:
"I came to Heidelberg to study German and English. I live in a student residence called Concordia. I am happy to be here, because I met a lot of people from many different countries. I enjoy discovering new cultures. With these new people I have to speak German or English, which is a good training for me. 

At F+U, I learn German and English intensively. Now I can talk to an American friend of mine without any communication problems."

- Johan, France

"Everything was strange to me at the beginning, but I got used to it very quickly! My time in Heidelberg was so fantastic, because I could improve my German knowledge very fast. I took a course at F+U. It lasted only two months, but I learned a lot! The teachers are very funny, I always had to laugh. 

I would have loved to spend more time here! I have to leave now this beautiful city. So long Heidelberg, B., T. and dear Hefeweizen with banana juice! I will miss you!"
