What can you gain from a gap year abroad or Sabbatical with Sprachcaffe? Unlike our more commonly offered Standard and Intensive courses, the gap year course is spread across a much longer time span. Sprachcaffe's long term course brings people together who feel the same about learning a new language while being eager to travel and explore the unknown.

You will of course be able to choose how much work you want to take on. The gap year Standard course includes 4 lessons per day and the Intensive course includes 6 lessons per day, each of which are 45 minutes long in both course types. Lessons take place in the mornings from Mondays to Fridays so that you can freely plan your time in the day from the afternoon until the night. Weekends are obviously also free for you to follow any of your desires while staying in the country of your choice. If you do not yet know what you want to do once you are there you can join us for excursions, our sports offers and other free time activities that we have prepared for your stay. In case you already have plans for what you want to do, see and explore during your stay, you are free to follow your goals as well.

You will find courses for all language levels and capabilities in our program, which includes courses from A1 to C2 (C1 and C2 only available upon request). Before you begin your travel journey we will ask you to take part in a placement test in order to determine which type of course will be best for you to take at your skill level and so that we can ensure that your language development progress will be smooth and easy.

Our gap year language courses are available all year long, due to which you are not limited to certain shorter booking time periods or dates.
