Humboldt-Institut offers German language courses in weekly Advent calendar drawing!

Published on Thursday, March 23, 2017

From December 1 to 24, a total of 4 two-week German courses including accommodation is drawn on


German language school Humboldt-Institut is happy to announce the Humboldt Advent calendar's fifth season with a chance to win a two-week intensive German language course every week until Christmas!


Advent calendars are very popular in Germany, especially the candy-filled variety. Behind the 24 doors or little windows of such a calendar, pieces of chocolate or candies wait to be enjoyed each day of the Advent season.


How does the Humboldt calendar work? Starting on December 1, each day one door of the Advent calendar can be opened on the school's website. Participants have to answer the question of the day and register with their name, age and email address to take part in the competition. Participating every day enhances the chances to win a prize!


Which prizes can be won? Each week, participants can win a two-week intensive German course at the Humboldt-Institut as a main prize. Depending on their age, students can choose to take their German course in the course centers in Constance or Berlin City (for participants aged 18+), in Lindenberg (13-17) or Bad Schussenried (10-17). The package does not only include the German language course, but also all course material, accommodation on campus, full board, a daily activity program, excursions and free airport transfer. In addition, Humboldt polo shirts and dictionaries will be drawn. The total value of this year's competition prizes exceeds 7,000 euro!


"Humboldt is looking forward to many participants and lucky winners in the Advent calendar competition," states the school's managing director, Mr. Lennart Güthling. On Thursday,


December 1, the first door can be opened on:

About the Humboldt-Institut:


The Humboldt-Institut e.V. is a non-profit organization for teaching German as a foreign language founded in 1977. With more than 60,000 enroled students from over 160 countries in the past 40 years, the Humboldt-Institut is one of the largest and most experienced providers of German as a foreign language. From a single program center at Ratzenried Castle, which nowadays serves as the administrative headquarters, the Humboldt-Institut has grown to a network of 17 schools, of which four - Berlin Mitte, Constance, Lindenberg and Bad Schussenried - are open year-round.

German courses at the Humboldt-Institut are almost always offered as packages which include everything: housing accommodations, full board and leisure program. This way students don't have to worry about anything and can fully concentrate on their German language acquisition.


The Humboldt-Institut offers German courses for all age groups and language levels. Students include individuals, families, groups and executives. In addition to German language courses, the school also offers pathway programs to secondary and higher education in Germany.


What is special about the German courses at the Humboldt-Institut? Small classes, active use of the language, transparent performance checks, a carefully coordinated system of classes, homework and exams, as well as the environment of consistently German-speaking, Germanlearning and German-living - these all, combined with a varied program of cultural and leisure activities, are the cornerstones for a successful language training.
