German & Work Experience

Using German in your everyday work

To anyone who wishes to gather working experience in Germany (especially high school graduates and university students) we offer a program: German & Work Experience.

Working and studying can be a successful combination for your personal and professional development. Working in a Freiburg company and living on your own, you have a vibrant and exciting opportunity to explore life in Germany. And you can test and expand your German knowledge in an active way in the work world. You learn about the work environment, working with colleagues, hear some dialect being spoken and learn a lot about the business. An exciting adventure that‘s worth it!
