Sports, music, culture, and travel are always present in Marcus's life. Skiing around the world, playing traditional music in the local brass band and organizing sporting and cultural events led him to believe that everything is much easier if you speak the language of the people you work with. He put all of these components together to create Sprachkulturcamp, allowing others to practice German, learn about Austrian culture, and participate in sports.

What is your favorite travel memory?

Having visited so many different places, it is hard to choose just one. Breathtaking landscapes in Newzealand, crossing the U.S. by motorhome with some very good friends, and hopping from one island to another in Greece are some of my favorites.

Another fond memory is standing on top of a mountain in South America with Spanish-speaking friends, and enjoying a day of skiing in fresh powder.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Every day in my life I learn something new. Now that I am more than 50 years old, I know that I learned a lot, but also that there so many more things to explore. This is what I would like to share with the people who join Sprachkulturcamp.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

If I already spoke some words in German, I would choose a weekly camp. It will improve your language skills by speaking to others, you'll get to learn about the country, the people who live in Tyrol, and about their customs and traditions.

You'll have the chance to play traditional folk music and the possibility to participate in a local band. Aside from that, there's plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful Austrian nature, and spend as much time as possible learning German.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

The company is very small and so is the group of people who are guests at Sprachkulturcamp, therefore, there is flexibility in everything you do -- from learning German to cultural and sports programs.

We offer some special opportunities throughout the year. For example, before Christmas, you don't just get to taste the traditional local cookies, you'll get to bake them yourself in a group class!

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

The main thing in a small company is its flexibility. Listening to our clients is what's most important to us. This is how we find out the best way to improve their language skills as well as make sure they enjoy their stay in Austria.
