Intensive Courses

Our intensive courses have a modular structure and take place every day, so you can learn German quickly and effectively. Each module takes four or five weeks, depending on the level. The entire intensive course programme from total beginner (A1.1) to advanced (C1.2), the level at which you can study at a university, takes about eleven months. Regular tests check progress and ensure the homogeneity of our groups.

You can choose between small or large groups at regularly scheduled times, mornings or afternoons. Start at the beginning of any week (though we do recommend starting at the beginning of a module). With students from all over the world in every group, German is the lesson language from day one, meaning everyone has access to learning and works together.

Speaking, listening, writing and reading are all trained in our courses. Important vocabulary is practiced regularly in realistic everyday situations. You’ll learn through role plays, dialogs, partner work and the targeted correction of your teacher. Make sure to plan enough time every day for homework! Reviewing after class at your own pace is essential to the learning process.

CEFR language levels

Our course and exam system is based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). This provides an overview of the levels, describing each in detail to ensure consistency and transferability worldwide.
