  • 499€ per course

Our intensive courses comprise 150 lessons (1 lesson = 45 minutes). That is 5 lessons per day from Monday to Friday. Our intensive courses take place from A1-B1 always in the afternoon, from B2-C1 you have lessons in the morning.

At each level we use modern & established teaching methods, an up-to-date textbook and other materials that are tailored to your needs. Your experienced teachers are all trained in German as a foreign language and look forward to supporting you in your learning process.

Basic Level

A1 to B1plus

You are at the right place in the A1-B1plus courses if you have none, little or uncertain experience in German or if you want to consolidate your basic knowledge. Instruction in this course includes the four skills "speaking, listening comprehension, reading comprehension and writing". The emphasis is on practical communication in both general and academic German. It is important to us that our participants develop language competence and a feeling for the language. In addition, you will acquire all the important basics in grammar and vocabulary.

And what does one actually do B1plus? Is this a repetition of B1?

In B1plus you expand your knowledge from B1 and apply it in complex structures. You enlarge your vocabulary and strengthen your competences in all skill areas. B1plus is not a repetition of B1, but a deepening. This course builds a bridge between basic and intermediate level and prepares you optimally for the demanding requirements of the intermediate level. B1plus is an obligatory and fully-fledged level in our program.


Intermediate level

B2 to C1

The intermediate level is suitable for students who have already successfully completed B1/B1plus, wish to take a German language exam and wish to study or work in Germany. In these courses you build on your knowledge from the basic level and supplement your abilities and skills in general and academic German. You will develop your language skills through discussions, debates and communicative activities such as role-plays, partner or group work. In the written section, you will train to write coherent argumentations and thus take your first steps towards scientific texts. After the course you will be able to take part in a debate and apply different communication styles confidently. In addition, you will acquire important knowledge and strategies for understanding demanding written and oral texts.
