The Canadian Summer School in Germany (CSSG)

The Canadian Summer School in Germany (CSSG) offers university-level language and culture studies in Kassel, in a unique and intensive immersion program. The CSSG is organized under the auspices of the Canadian Association of University Teachers of German (CAUTG) and offers courses at the intermediate and advanced level. For a period of approximately 6 1/2 weeks, from early May to mid-June, students participate in a full course (approximately 85 hours of classroom instruction) and in numerous additional activities: lectures at various museums, visits to theatres and operas, excursions to cities with cultural and historical significance, and a three or four day trip to Berlin. The main feature of the program, though, is the students’ rapid progress in linguistic skills enhanced mainly by the fact that they are immersed in German life, culture and civilization.
