Bildungsurlaub Courses

Our Italian language courses are accredited for Bildungsurlaub 'Educational Leave' courses. All employees in Germany, who have been with their company for at least 6 months have the right to take the time off for a Bildungsurlaub course.

Most states require students to participate in 30 lessons per week, which our Standard Super Plus courses cover. Some German states (Baden-Württemberg, Hessen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen and Schleswig-Holstein) require 40 lessons per week. Language students from these states in addition to the 30 lessons Italian course do 10 extra lessons which include educational and cultural activities like cooking lessons.

And in the current times of covid we are happy to say that many states accept online courses as Bildungsurlaub, where you can actively take part in our courses from your home.
