Experience Vienna, learn German and serve others! Completely customizable programs from the level of language, the type of service (internship, preceptorship, volunteer), the length (a minimum of 4 weeks for service work but the longer the better!) the type of housing, how much or how little is included (meals, excursions, transcripts, etc.). IPSL can customize your program to fit your schedule and budget.

Courses are taught at a school in central Vienna and offer classes for all levels. Participants are taught by native speakers and learn to speak, write and read Standard German. The lessons are held in small, international groups with modern teaching methods, so that learning German is fun!

The distribution of internships depends on the students' previous work experience, education, etc. IPSL will take requests into account and arrange a placement accordingly, if possible.
