Salzburg, with a population of 150,000, is the fourth largest city in Austria. It is located on the banks of the Salzach River at the northern border of the Alps. Unspoilt countryside, natural attractions such as the Hohe Tauern National Park, the beauty of the "Baroque Jewel" of the old town and the surrounding communities all offer visitors enchanting variety.
This intensive course abroad offers students the opportunity to continue their German language acquisition on an immersion program.

This course will expose students to the culture, language, and regional accents of Germany and Austria. This immersion course in Salzburg and environs has been offered with great success for many years and has received consistently excellent reviews from students who participated.
