Students are allowed to mix and match the courses to develop their language skills in all areas, or focus on a particular course to enhance specific language skills they would like to concentrate on.

General German

Whether you are elementary or advanced level, our General German classes will help develop your communicative confidence when using German in a wide range of everyday situations. General German covers reading, writing, speaking and listening, combining this practice with vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation exercises. This course starts on the first Monday of every month and is available for any level of German, A1 – B2. We have a maximum number of 16 students in a class and you can study for a minimum of one week.


TestDaF is the globally recognised German language qualification, widely accepted by German universities and colleges. Our tailored approach will meet your individual needs and requirements, developing the key skills needed for all four parts of the test: reading, writing, speaking and listening.
