Intensive language courses

Our goal is to enable our students to feel confident in the German language and to communicate effectively. Based on the knowledge and language skills of each individual student, which we are able to establish by giving you a SIT placement test, we will assign you to a group which corresponds to your language level.

In this group you will be able to continuously improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Our practice- and subject-oriented courses are based on the interests and needs of our students and are in accordance with the standards of levels A1 to C2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.


The knowledge you acquire in these courses will be tested regularly. For all those courses lasting longer than four weeks you will receive a certificate with marks. For those courses under four weeks you will receive a certificate of attendance indicating your current language level.

We offer a variety of intensive courses in which you can enroll:

  • D32 Intensive language course

    For all those who wish to make especially quick progress, additional classes in small groups provide maximum input.

    You have set high goals for yourself, and with our support you will be able to reach them. You will have 26 teaching units per week, assigned to a group in your specific level, and added to this are 6 more teaching units in a small group of up to 5 students.

    In the morning you will have four subject-oriented teaching units daily, in which you will quickly learn to deal with situations in everyday life, in your professional life or in life at university, all in accordance with the language level of your specific group. On three afternoons per week you will broaden the scope of the lesson given during the morning, the focus in this case will be on the elements of communication. Working on vocabulary or training listening/reading/speaking/writing skills in discussions, creative writing and movie reviews, just to name a few activities, will not only ensure successful learning but also provide a great deal of variety and fun. Two further teaching units, held in small groups, will follow these modules on four afternoons of the weeks.
