About

During the BCA Vienna summer program you will have the opportunity to develop your German Language skills at Internationales Kulturinstitut Wien (IKI). IKI Vienna hosts students from all over the world interested in improving their German. Class sizes are small, so that you’ll have the best opportunity to strengthen your language skills. Professors emphasize speaking, reading, writing and communication skills with efforts placed on fine-tuning grammar and vocabulary. You will also take a history course focused on Vienna as a geographical, political, cultural, and artistic crossroads at the heart of Europe and uses the city itself as a classroom.

Don’t be surprised if you find yourself in a café with a group of friends from Italy, Brazil, Syria, China, Croatia, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Japan and Egypt. In Vienna’s historic First District, you’ll have easy access to a variety of leisure and cultural activities such as open-air film shows, museums, opera houses and cooking classes.
