The objective of all our German courses is to

give the student the skills they need to find their feet and communicate in a new language and also to enable them to undertake studies or training for work.

People of different cultures, ages and educational backgrounds come together at our courses and work with our teaching staff to achieve these goals. It is therefore important that an atmosphere of trust and mutual understanding is created right from the start to overcome any potential fears or inhibition. Group activities and discussions, games, role play and/or songs are a firm part of the course curriculum in order to facilitate this.

Another important part of our concept is promoting independent learning and active acquisition of knowledge. The moodle course is one element that works towards this objective. Here, the students can find resources (texts, audio files and links etc.) that enable them to develop their understanding of the subject matter independently and test it out.

Acquiring knowledge isn’t the only element that students need to get to university; our courses that prep students for higher education also give our participants the ability to set down their ideas and knowledge in writing and express them orally using appropriate grammar and vocabulary. This means that formulating and improving written work (structuring a text and making it coherent, useful phrases and written grammar) play an important role, especially in the higher level courses. It is equally important to be able to showcase your own independently researched knowledge in the form of a presentation.

Our teaching staff accompany our students on this long, often challenging path and offer support and encouragement to enable the students to reach their personal goals.
