Intensive German Courses

Studnets in an intensive German course in Berlin

The intensive German courses comprise 30 lessons of 45 minutes per week taught from Monday to Friday. The effective instruction covers all areas of language acquisition (reading, listening, speaking, writing and grammar). We attach importance to small classes with an average of 10 students taught by experienced teachers. This way students can improve their level of German quickly.

All intensive courses are offered as complete packages including accommodation, full board, leisure and cultural program as well as weekly excursions. This combination enables a continuous German-speaking learning environment and an immersion in the German language, which significantly supports and promotes the learning progress.
