How about taking a Gap Year or sabbatical trip to Frankfurt or Munich? During your longer stay you can take a language course and get to know the country and its people. In Germany you will be able to travel everywhere by trains and buses, making getting around very convenient and effortless. This way your language course will be a very special experience!
You will be learning the language effectively and be able to put this knowledge to use in your day to day life straight away.

If you are a European citizen you will not require a stay permit in order to live in Germany for a longer amount of time. Should you not possess a German passport you will need to apply for a VISA at the German embassy. You can find further information about the requirements on the website of the federal foreign office.
When traveling into Germany from abroad we recommend that you apply for a travel insurance that will remain valid for the entire duration of your stay in Germany. Many providers offer special rates for students and people travelling in order to take a language course abroad.
