Details on these courses

You’ll learn in a group for approx. four weeks, either in a morning or afternoon course, depending on the institute you choose and the course level. There are 12 possible starting dates spread over the entire year.

This will enable you to develop your language skills and combine any number of courses to create a systematic language-learning program. At the start of your course we will ask you about your individual learning goals and follow up with ongoing support during the learning process. This results in tight integration of the classroom lessons, self-study activities and practice.

At all levels you also have the option of taking one of our examinations, which are recognized around the world.

Have you checked our standard course listings without finding dates that work for you? Or perhaps you don't have time for a complete course, but would still like to boost your German skills?

With our flexible course offerings, you can join an ongoing Intensive 4 or Intensive 8 course at a time of your choice. You will be integrated into the existing class. A special advantage for learners who decide at the last minute: If you have learned German before, you can join an ongoing course at any time.
