Intensive German course
We offer German courses at all levels of the Common European Framework (CEF), from beginners level A1 to the almost fluent level C2. We also offer preparation courses for the most important German tests: DSH, Test-DaF, certificate C1 and C2 of the Goethe-Institute, telc etc.
Our intensive courses of 20 class hours per week are most popular. During these courses, class materials are intensely analysed, discussed and learned. Students improve their abilities in the four main areas: Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and also in Grammar.
The superintensive German as a foreign language course with 30 lessons per week is based on the content of the regular intensive course with 20 lessons per week.
The ten additional hours are devoted to the development of language skills. Students receive ten extra hours of conversation each week. Through the discussions, dialogues and conversations that students have with their classmates and faculty, they are able to significantly improve their language skills.
