We offer five different types of German courses

 

Morning intensive course

Intensive courses are ideal for people who want to learn German quickly and accurately. They can be perfectly combined with conversation training for an even more intensive learning experience.

(Mon - Fri, 8.30 a.m. - 11.40 a.m.)


Afternoon semi-intensive course

Semi-intensive courses proceed at a slower pace than intensive courses, giving students more time to digest what they have learned.

(Mon/Wed or Tues/Thurs, 1.30 p.m. - 4.40 p.m.)


Evening semi-intensive course

These courses are ideal for working professionals who want to learn as much as possible in as few lessons as possible.

(Mon/Wed or Tues/Thurs, 6.00 p.m. - 8.10 p.m.)


Conversation training

Conversation training provides an ideal opportunity to practise speaking German in everyday situations.

(Tues/Thurs, 11.50 a.m. - 1.20 p.m.)

(Mon/Wed or Tues/Thurs, 1.30 p.m. - 3.00 p.m.)

(Tues/Thurs, 6.00 p.m. - 7.30 p.m.)


Private lessons

Our private tuition is aimed at fast learners who want to make sure they are ready to start a regular course or to learn specific course content.
