Course Description

Do you want to improve your German knowledge and get to know Germany intensively at the same time? In this case this will be the ideal course for you! The 20 lessons per week focus on the training of grammatical structures and on familiarizing with everyday vocabulary. After the course you will have plenty of opportunities to intensify your newly acquired knowledge on your own and to discover Germany on excursions. The Standard Course is also preparing for the diploma exams that are offered at did. No matter, if you intend to focus on passing an exam or if you rather plan your stay at did as part of a relaxing vacation experience – in any case, the Standard Course will guarantee you learning success at a high degree.

Course Content

The Standard Course focuses on learning and actively using language structures – this way the instruction is very much practice oriented. But what does this actually mean? Your teacher will assign you an active role while studying German and will draw you and your fellow students directly into his interactive instruction. We try to avoid that you just sit there passively, listening what the teacher is going to explain up front. Your teacher will help you studying the language by instructing you clearly and thus enabling you to develop and to explain grammatical rules and structures on your own and independently. Because only when you actively understand what you’ve learned you will also memorize and internalize it permanently!

In the Standard Course, German language will always be practiced and taught in context by using as far as possible authentic, everyday life language situations. This way you will study language in everyday, professional and university situations – after all, you study towards a well-defined goal and you want to focus on that from the very beginning. Through this practical orientation of the Standard Course, already after a very short time you will gain a solid linguistic basis for making yourself more familiar with the language and culture in Germany, with the country and its people. And this will be true for all areas of modern life, because our modern didactical approach will always concentrate on listening, reading, speaking and writing.


The Standard Course is the perfect choice for students who wish to discover Germany in the afternoons. Participants who want to go over the course topic once more on their own and at home should also decide for the Standard Course since school ends at 12:30 pm every day. The Standard Course is offered every week from Monday to Friday and classes begin at 9:00 am in the morning. Between 10:30 and 11:00 am there is a break and you’ll have plenty of time getting a refreshment in the cafeteria, checking your emails or chatting with your new friends. 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 and 6:00 pm. Thus, you finally will have the opportunity to sleep in late!
