CDC Cologne German Language School – Accommodations 2020
The CDC Cologne German language school offers accommodations in carefully selected Host Families, Apartment Shares and Studio Apartments:
Host Family options:
Host Family – Single room with Breakfast.
Host Family – Single Room with Half Board (2 meals per day).
Host Families: This can be either a family in the classical sense, or an individual person or a single parent. The host family can live downtown but can also be located in the suburbs. When several guests stay at the same home, we attempt to ensure that they don’t speak the same native language. In a host family you can also book just breakfast, or half board (breakfast and an evening meal). The meals are typical German cuisine. From your host family or your shared accommodation it can take up to 60 minutes by public transport to reach the Carl Duisberg Training Center.
Meals: You can book lodgings in a private home with breakfast or with half-board. In many cases you can prepare smaller meals yourself, but in general the lodgings do not include the use of the kitchen to do all of your own cooking. If you have booked a room with breakfast or half-board, then as a rule you will take those meals together with the other members of the family and the other guests. Half board means that you will receive breakfast and dinner. Please stop to consider that the time at which meals are taken and how this is done in Germany may differ from what you are used to at home. In Germany, breakfast and dinner are, as a rule, not warm meals but rather consist of bread or buns, sausage, cheese and marmalade. Consider it to be a cultural experience to eat the way Germans do.
Apartment Share – Single room in an apartment shared with other students. No meal, use of equipped kitchen.
If you want to share a flat with other students, you should choose the option room in shared accommodation offered in Berlin or Cologne. You will have your own room and share the kitchen, bathroom and toilet with your flat mates. Each of you are responsible for cleaning the accommodation and you can prepare all your meals yourself. From your shared accommodation it can take up to 60 minutes by public transport to reach the Carl Duisberg Training Center.
Studio Apartment – Small studio apartment for individual use, private bathroom and kitchenette.
Studio apartments offer more comfort than a room in a guest house. Each apartment has its own shower or bath, plus toilet and cooking facilities.
