The Schnepfenthal Institution is a boarding school in the district of Gotha, Germany, founded in 1784.
While adhering to national educational guidelines on science and mathematics, it is also one of the top schools in Germany for the study of foreign languages. In addition to compulsory education in English and German, students in 6th grade choose from Arabic, Chinese and Japanese. Latin is taught in year 5, and the student may continue studying Latin throughout his education at the Salzmannschool, if he wishes. In year 8, students must choose from French, Italian, Russian and Spanish. 9th grade students have to choose among three of those four languages again, depending on which language they began studying in year 8.
