Fast-learning course participants

The Bellingua Language School focuses its teaching on fast and motivated learners. 90% of our students have a university degree and 75% are between 25 and 40 years old.

Small, homogeneous groups

We provide German courses for small groups of up to nine students. The average class size is six.

Regular assessments guarantee homogeneous groups: a test is taken after each unit and students must achieve adequate test results in order to continue the course.

New - Digital homework

As of 5 November 2018, we will be using the programme edulo to do homework. With interactive exercises and self-checks, this app enables you to both learn and work digitally. 

For classes and also at home, each course participant will need his/her own laptop or tablet (minimum size 8 inches, no older than iOS 9 or Android 6.0). 

It is not possible to book a course at Bellingua unless you have this equipment. 

Detailed assessment test

Do you already know some German? Our free, in-depth assessment test gives us an accurate overview of your existing knowledge and helps us allocate you to the right teaching group.

Success guaranteed

We guarantee that you will pass a Goethe or telc examination as long as you successfully complete an appropriate course with us and take the exam within four months of the end of the course.

No risk – our money-back guarantee

You can get to know us at absolutely no risk and decide for yourself whether we meet your expectations. Intensive courses can be cancelled at the end of the first week, and semi-intensive courses at the end of week 2.

If you wish to terminate the course, we will refund the full tuition fee.

Flexible course length

It is entirely up to you to choose the length of your course.

Flexible contracts

You can cancel at any time with a one week’s notice to the end of a calendar week. Cancellable contracts ensure both flexibility and motivated students.

If you cancel, the weekly price will be calculated on the basis of the actual course length. The same applies if you want to take a break during the course for any reason, such as holidays.
