Course Description

If your goal is to make fast progress, this course with more than 24 lessons per week is the perfect choice for an intensive language training. It differs from the Standard Course by providing possibilities for working with current text materials from politics, culture and economy. Thus, you will have the opportunity to train the communicative skills more extensively. The knowledge and language skills you have acquired in class will be intensified and supplemented in special classes twice a week in the afternoons. Thus, the Intensive Course is also a very good choice if you want to focus on preparing a German language exam. If you wish to learn fast and intensively, or if you plan to pass a diploma exam, you should decide for this course. This Course is preparing you as well to the GfdS and Goethe Exam.

Course Content

Unlike the Standard Course, the Intensive Course also provides enough time to work on current topics from politics, culture and science. Hence, the 4 language skills listening, reading, speaking and writing will not only be trained based on a textbook but the teachers also use supplementary, specially selected materials. It is the birthday of a famous German politician or artist? There are interesting political news from Berlin? It often happens that the class will discuss the current news and interesting events in the Intensive Course, that up-to-date topics will spontaneously become part of the program the class was going to work on at the moment. Thus, you study German and you will be fully informed at the same time!

The Intensive Course covers 24 lessons. 2 lessons each will be taught Tuesdays and Thursdays in the afternoons. While we closely work with the textbooks most of the time during the morning sessions, the afternoon seminars open up possibilities for an intensive communicative training. The teacher is organizing the instruction in such a way that all participants can actively participate in class, can communicate with each other and discuss their opinions. In such a lively atmosphere you can learn the language easily and spontaneously. And even rather complex grammatical structures are understood easily by being practiced and used creatively. And, of course, we also use these afternoon sessions for preparing the language exams.


With 24 lessons per week, the Intensive Course offers you 20% more instruction than the Standard Course, but there will be still enough time in the afternoons for private activities. The 2 afternoon sessions are always scheduled Tuesdays and Thursdays between 1:00 and 2:30 pm. Wednesdays you will have the possibility making use of our Self-Study Center where teachers can help you with your homework assignments or will answer all the questions on German grammar you might have. Using the Self-Study Center is free of charge! Sometimes, mostly during the summer months, when the institute is at maximum capacity, we also offer instruction – usually scheduled in the mornings – on some afternoons between 1:00 - 6:00 pm.
