Highlights
  • Guaranteed position
  • Flexible start dates available year-round
  • Minimum 2 weeks, maximum 4 weeks commitment
  • Placements in Berlin

Participants in Berlin live with local host families. Host families serve as a unique introduction into German culture and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Students living with a host family will have three meals per day provided.

Our host partners work with API to individualize start dates throughout the year, for this reason, applications are accepted on a rolling basis. We recommend you apply at least 12 weeks before your program start to have sufficient time to get your placement and make your plans.

Specified dates are group enrollment dates. Please contact your Program Coordinator to customize a start date.

Prices below are for the 2-week program. Each additional week incurs a $550 charge per week.
