“Sprache und Kultur” at the SDI in Munich is the chosen foreign institution that offers a 4-week program for foreign students interested in German language and culture. Language classes take place in the morning (9:00 am – 12:15 pm). They include 20 classroom hours (45 minutes) per week on all levels (A1 – C1) and two excursions per week (mainly in the afternoon). Students will also take a second course with UCF professor, Randall Kloko. Students will be hosted in double room student apartments.
Students on this program should plan to arrive in Munich, Germany on the starting day of the program. To arrive on the starting day of this program, flights must depart the USA the day before the start of the program. Students should not purchase their flights until they have been advised by Study Abroad to do so. Study Abroad advises that you book your flight directly with the airline.

- Students will be immersed in a cultural life-changing experience. They will live like Germans for 4 weeks, going to the stores, going to schools, going on the excursions and learning about the German/European lifestyle. The choice of the different excursions in the surrounding area of Munich will give students a broad opportunity to become more worldly individuals.
- Students will be taking a German Post-War literature class that will reinforce their literary and humanistic knowledge. This is a course that is not taught at UCF.
