Students’ Comments

"This program is a very well-rounded experience: not only does it add on to our cultural knowledge, but it also allows the students to advance their curricular work during the summer!"

(Participant, ISP 2014)

 

"A wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in a culture that most people are not very aware of. I found myself often pleasantly surprised at characteristics of the German culture."

(Participant, ISP 2012)

 

“What an incredible way to spend the summer. The program is full of interesting courses, people, and places. Dortmund is a fantastic city to explore and practice German in, and a good distance to many exciting sites in the country.”

(Participant, ISP 2010)

 

“Studying in the same setting as the course content allowed for travel and visitations which not only complemented our learning, but allowed us to immediately digest it. Everything we learned in our class was immediately applicable to our stay in Dortmund.”

(Participant, ISP 2010)
