One-to-one Intensive Courses
If you need particularly intensive German training, have a special profile of requirements for your German course, or if individual instruction is better suited for your learning style, then our customized courses in a one-to-one setting are the right fit for you. We discuss the focus of the lessons with you in advance of the course. Your personal teacher will tailor the content of the lessons to your needs.
Course content is based on the needs of the participants and can include general or specific topics such as Business German, intensive exam training, or focus on individual skills such as oral expression.
Class times can be set upon agreement. Individual courses are also held on holidays. For the intensive one-to-one courses, students can choose between 25, 30 or 40 lessons per week.
One-to-one intensive courses can be booked for a course duration starting from one week.
The starting dates of the one-to-one courses are flexible and a course start is possible all year round.
Locations & Services
In Berlin and Constance, the Humboldt-Institut offers intensive courses for all levels as complete packages including accommodation, full board as well as leisure and cultural programs at two attractive locations:
On the one hand Germany’s capital Berlin, with more than 3.5 million inhabitants, which is the largest and most vibrant city in the country with a large variety of sights and cultural offers.
Constance, on the other hand, is an unhurried and laid-back city of 85,000 inhabitants and is rated as having the highest quality of life in Germany due to its gorgeous location on the shores of Lake Constance and its proximity to Switzerland and the Alps.
With the combination course, you have the opportunity to experience two uniquely distinct regions of Germany within a short amount of time.
A bus transfer between the cities (Constance–Berlin or Berlin–Constance) is included in the course fee when booking two consecutive courses of a minimum of five weeks in each of the two cities.
German courses with accommodation – Immerse yourself in German with Humboldt
The intensive courses in Berlin and Constance are offered as a complete package, including accommodation and full board. Both schools offer comfortable rooms with private bathrooms. The accommodation directly in the institute offers many advantages such as short distances to class, optimal learning conditions and a family atmosphere. Three meals and a fruit basket are included in our package deal. Our kitchen team pays attention to a varied, healthy diet and cooks fresh every day.
Due to the completely German-speaking environment in the schools, students are immersed in the German language not only in class, but also during meals, free time and excursions. This immersion allows for practical application of what is learned in the classroom and contributes significantly to the learning success.
All German courses with accommodation include
- Tuition and course material
- Small classes with an average of 10 students
- Accommodation with full board
- Daily leisure and cultural program
- Weekly excursions (entrance fees not included)
- Humboldt certificate
German courses without accommodation include tuition, course material and a certificate.
