Holiday Homestays

Experiment e.V.Students who are interested in getting to know Germany via the "Homestay" program stay with the host family for one to four weeks (typically during the Christmas and Easter holidays). AJY partners with Experiment e.V. in order to place students.

Speaking German from morning until evening quickly builds language fluency. There is no charge for this homestay experience through Experiment e.V with the financial support of the Foreign Ministry of the Federal Republic of Germany. Experiment e.V., based in Bonn, is a non-profit organization that is committed to encouraging exchanges between peoples of all cultures, religions and age groups.

Prospective students, please consult the Experiment e.V. website if interested and be sure to contact AJY (ajy@uni-heidelberg.de) well in advance in order to ensure placement. Space is limited.
