I really enjoyed this little town. Very pedestrian and bike friendly. Really nice restaurants and cafe. No big shopping centers or international fast food or cafe (no starbucks, no mc donalds...). Very welcoming city.

Carl Duisberg Centrum

I spent 2 months in Radolfzell and these months were the best of my life. At school, both the teachers and other staff were particularly helpful and nice. Classes were never boring and the teacher answered every question. After the lessons, the school organized leisure activities that were always varied and interesting. Already on the first day I found friends with whom I speak every day. Although Radolfzell is a small town, I have never been bored. You have the opportunity to bathe in Lake Constance or drive any boats, do a lot of sports, go to pubs and just shop or eat. Nevertheless, the city is safe. You can also go on a little trip to Switzerland, France, Italy or Austria because they are very close. You should not doubt, because no matter what kind of person you are, you will enjoy this language school and city. I hope I can go back again. :)))

Wonderful location in a small town on Bodensee. Nice small size school, easy to get to know participants in many other classes. Very friendly and helpful staff, including the cafeteria lady with her home-made cakes during the morning break and the social activity coordinators.
My CDC guest house room needs more electricity sockets. It had just one socket, high up on the wall beside the light switch near the door, very far from the table, which is fixed in place.

I loved the school: their method, the content, the length of the courses, their professionalism...however, it will depend on your teacher. I was lucky to have two of the best ones but I did have some of the others whose performance was much worse.

friendly behavior of young people towards a much older person.
I was in fact the only adult, which, however nice the young students were towards me, did not allow me talk much with them. I had come especially to improve my ability to speak but I've rather improved my grammar and vocabulary.

Vi è un'atmosfera molto accogliente, i professori e lo staff sono disponibili e cordiali.
Nella Gastehaus della CDC mi sono trovata benissimo: l'alloggio è modesto, ma sufficiente; viene lasciata molta autonomia ed è un modo facile per fare "gruppo" con gli altri studenti.
