You could do all that and more this summer through our program in Leipzig, a city in eastern Germany that's over 1000 years old. Students will improve their German language skills and take excursions to media and cultural sights in the area.
Interested? Read on:
Hostelclub.com has a great list of things you'll simply have to see if you go to Leipzig. There's "The Jewel of Leipzig," which is the train station. Might sound mundane, but trains and train stations are something of a bigger deal in Europe than they are in America...
If you're interested in art, the New York Times tells us Leipzig is a good place to be, not only for the music but for other kinds of art as well. And this other New York Times article will tell you what to do during the day, at night, and where to eat.
And here's a great little YouTube video showing scenes from Leipzig. Looks beautiful!
Finally, make sure to take a look at what WikiTravel has to say. As usual, you can find an enormous amount of information, from food and transportation to sights and events.
If you have any questions, email us or stop by the J-School International Programs Office. And if you're reading this and it's not yet 4pm on Wednesday the 15th... get moving to the info session in Tucker Forum!
