Intensive German Course 25

The Intensive Course 25 covers all aspects of successful language learning: developing your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Project work and extra-curricular activities further enhance autonomous learning behaviour and German language use outside the classroom.

The extra hour offered in the intensive course 25 provides learners with ample opportunities to revise, apply and practice German actively through dialogues, discussion groups, role plays or interactive games. Instruction is based on the stages of the CEFR (A1-C1) as well as additional exercises to practice the language and immersion of the material obtained in instruction.
