If you already know some German and wish to enrol for one of our courses, we offer you a free assessment test. Once you have booked the assessment test on our website,  an access code as well as further instructions will be emailed to you. Afterwards we will conduct an informal interview with you which will help us to rate your level of German as closely as possible and to find the best course for you.

Students should consider their personal commitments and circumstances before enrolment, as we regret that no fees are refundable once the course has started.
