German Courses

We offer German courses of different formats and proficiency levels to suit each learner’s individual needs. All of our German courses involve small groups in which every student is supported individually, thus ensuring that his or her German improves rapidly. 

We offer courses on a regular basis for all of the levels specified by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), from A1 to C1.

The levels are defined as follows:

  • Deutsch A1, A2: Basic language skills.

  • Deutsch B1, B2: A more independent use of language and the use of more advanced vocabulary.

  • Deutsch C1: Advanced language users with skills sufficient for academic work.

Intensive German Courses

Our Intensive German courses are full-time courses aimed at students or professionals who need to learn German as swiftly and efficiently as possible, either because they need to provide proof of advanced German language proficiency before they can enrol at a German university or because they have landed their dream job in Germany and quickly need to hone their language skills.

Our Intensive German courses are also suitable for participants who wish to go on to take one of our Foundation Courses but have not yet reached the required B2 proficiency level.

Most learners require two months of intensive tuition to progress from one CEFR proficiency level to the next, e.g., from B1 to B2.

Business German

Our Business German courses are part-time courses intended for busy professionals who need to improve their German skills in order to empower them to take the next step up the career ladder.

As participants most likely already speak some German, the emphasis is upon teaching intermediate German at levels B1+/B2. Both the course contents and the vocabulary taught focus upon introducing participants to German business culture and enabling them to confidently interact with their German colleagues.

Topics covered include:

  • CV preparation

  • Succeeding in job interviews

  • Introducing oneself and one’s company

  • E-mail and telephone etiquette

  • Giving presentations

  • Organising and conducting meetings
