German as a Foreign Language Intensive Course Flex Option (hybrid): Description
Regardless of whether you wish to learn German for your university studies or for your future career, the German intensive course offers you the perfect combination of lessons, practice and autonomous study. At the same time you profit from the professional support of our German as a Foreign Language teachers at one of our training centers in Düsseldorf and Berlin.
Our German intensive course prepares you linguistically for the admission to higher education or the entry into professional life in Germany. You have the opportunity to combine several successive intensive courses in order to systematically and individually tailor your learning process. All stages from A1 to C1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages are taught. We also offer intensive learning programs for those without prior German knowledge (A0).
Our level-differentiated intensive training offers you listening and reading comprehension with current texts, grammatical training and improvement of speaking and writing skills. While doing so we orient our courses on the demands of the officially recognized German language exams (for B1, B2 and C1), which for the most part can be taken in our training center in the form of the TestDaF, DSH and telc exams. The classes are made up of international students which, in addition to the acquisition of the German language, offer you the opportunity for intercultural exchange.
Our German courses are hybrid:
You can flexibly decide whether you want to take part in the same course online or on site. The classroom is technically equipped in such a way that the lessons are transmitted live online and online participants can participate actively and live in the lessons. This enables interaction between teacher, online participants and participants on site. You can participate in the course independent of current travel regulations and according to your needs.
