Course Requirements

There are no prerequisites for this course. However, we do expect participants to be actively engaged in the lessons. 


Through regular attendance upon the course, each student will be awarded with a certificate upon completion. If the participant is absent for more than 12 teaching units, only a certificate of attendance will be awarded. 

The certificate details the number of lessons attended, the grade, the number of ECTS credits as well as the content and language level of the course, in accordance with the regulations of the Council of Europe's Common European Framework.

Note: Please note, however, that this certificate is not a substitute for the language test, which all foreign students must pass prior to study full-time in Germany (TestDaF, DSH). Further information regarding this language test will be provided during the course.


Every participant will get 6 ECTS credits.

Course Material

The course material will be selected according to specific course goals, as well as to the respective language level (A1 - C1) of each class. It will be given at the beginning of the course, and during. The cost of materials will be included within the course price.
