Enrolment for our courses you can do by booking in our webshop

If you have already participated in one of our language courses, you can enrol for the follow-up course by booking the course via our webshop.

If you have not yet taken part in one of our language courses, we will first determine your language level. 
To do this, you first book the placement test on our website. You then take the written part of the placement test directly on the website. After the written test, we will contact you by telephone to take the oral part of the placement test with you. Once your language level has been determined, you can book the course via the website.

4. Resignation

4.1. If the course participant cannot take part in the course, the following cancellation conditions apply: If the enrolment is canceled in writing before the 2nd course evening, the course fee will be reimbursed after deduction of € 30.00 processing costs.
