Update: CSSG 2021 is going virtual!

The CSSG 2021 is moving to a virtual format. Registration has been re-opened.   

Increased pandemic restrictions both in Canada and in Germany make it impossible to deliver the program in-person. We are thus offering a virtual CSSG 2021 for personal health and safety reasons. The fast spread of new Covid-19 variants, the slow pace of vaccination (especially for young people), and the quarantines imposed at either end of the journey make travel very high risk and could add significant extra costs to the individual beyond the costs of the program itself.    

The CSSG 2021 will be a virtual international program. It includes virtual instruction as well as an interactive cultural and social program. There will be classes Monday through Friday (excepting German and Canadian holidays) as well as an additional series of integrated virtual field visits to sites of interest, cultural activities, interactions with local hosts and tandem partners, etc. Consultation hours will also be provided. We promise the CSSG is not just another online course. 

We are offering courses at the A2 (second semester), B1 (second year), B2 (third year), and C1 (fourth year) levels. 

The tuition amount will stay the same ($1,784) but the program fees will be reduced (to only $500). 

You can find a virtual presentation of the regular program here:, as well as further information on our website If your students have any questions, please they can contact Dr. John Plews at
