On the school yard

After successfully completing the Humboldt level B2, our students will be able to continue their secondary education in Germany. There they can complete their high school completion diploma or Abitur, which is the prerequisite for admission to a German university. To ease the transition between our German course and school attendance at a German boarding school, the Humboldt-Institut offers a special school transition course aimed at teaching the terminology and methodology in the most important subject areas taught in school.

The school transition course is organized into subject area modules: the natural sciences (mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry) and the humanities (history, politics, geography, religion). Art and music are covered as well. In addition to acquiring important technical vocabulary, students also learn how to summarize texts, work with sources, perform research and give presentations. Role-playing simulation games and project work also teach students how to work in groups.

The school transition course can only be booked after successfully passing the Humboldt level B2.

What is my level of German? You are welcome to have your German language level tested at our institute before your course starts. Please call to make an appointment for the test. Alternatively, you can test your German skills by taking our online placement test. Please note: the online test is only a rough guideline; it does not replace the placement test in the school.
