German courses:

We offer various German courses in order to give you the possibility to choose the right course according your needs and goals. The courses are supplemented with extra offers like excursions, a cultural programme, self learning facilities and learning advice.

Group tuition
You want to learn to communicate effectively in German in an international atmosphere with other course participants? Then group tuition is appropriate for you.
Intensive courses take place in groups and are offered in various levels regularly in the morning as well as in the afternoon. We already pay attention during application that course participants are from different countries in order to allow them to communicate in German with other participant and with the teacher. These are small groups to enable a pleasant and successful learning experience. The intensive courses take place on five days a week, 20 to 25 hours per week, and last 8 or 10 weeks.
The tuition language is German, whereby on demand participants can get consulting and support in their own commonly spoken language. The courses are supported and complemented with consultation, leisure activities, excursions, and facilities for self learning.
In the courses you are being prepared for life and/or further studies in Germany. All of our teachers have completed higher education and possess long-term experience. Course participants are sorted into classes of various different levels with others at who have matching levels, so that all can constantly increase their German language skills.
We label our courses according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)

A1  A2 B1 B2 C1

We consider from the start in all levels the actual goals of course participants and add permanent extra possibilities to our offers. This is particularly important for you, if you want to pass a specific exam e.g. Zertifikat Deutsch, entrance examination Studienkolleg, DSH or TestDaF.
The German course A1 is appropriate for course participants with little or no previous knowledge. Participants who want to learn German from scratch can attend this course. At the end of the course you have the opportunity to pass the exam Start Deutsch 1.
Participants, who already have knowledge of German language and want to increase this by a course at Spracheninstitut, do a test first in order to determine the appropriate course.
In order to ascertain the success of learning, we do an exam in the middle and at the end of each course. Then the following levels begin. The last level C1 is appropriate for course participants, who passed the preceding courses and want to study in Germany or want to work in a linguistically sophisticated profession after passing the DSH or TestDaF exam. It takes about one year from the first level (A1) to the end of the last level (C1).
For our courses in Germany, we use developed textbooks and support these with our own additional material.


Single tuition
You want to learn German as fast as possible, effective, individual and oriented towards your requirements?  Then single tuition is the optimal form of learning for you. You can of course get single tuition additional to a group course. We offer single tuition for all levels and also for special languages. First we test your knowledge free of charge in order to orientate the course towards your needs. You can book the single tuition for at least 10 hours (á 45 minutes). The tuition can take place at Spracheninstitut as well as another place e.g. your company.

Crash course
If you want to learn a language for professional or private reasons or as exam preparation very fast and oriented towards your needs, a crash course is the appropriate form of tuition for you. There are different variations and possibilities; with one or two teachers, as single tuition or in a small group, at weekends or during the week, as preparation for a specific exam or action etc. We consult you about details personally before the crash course begins.

Evening courses
If you work, study, look after children, do a practical training, write your master thesis (e.g. in English) during the day and therefore have not enough time to attend an intensive course during the day, then you have the possibility of attending an evening course in order to improve your German knowledge. The German courses in the evening take place on three weekdays at 18.00 ( 6 o’clock) and comprise 10 hours per week.
