This German Intensive Course 25 online is being taught by our partner-school in Hamburg in hybrid format. The school is member of the quality association for language centres IALC and provides high grade German courses.
The course covers all aspects of successful language learning and develops your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Project work and extra-curricular activities further enhance autonomous learning and the use of the German language outside the classroom. The course provides learners with ample opportunities to revise and to practise German through dialogues, discussions, role plays and interactive games.
Lectures available in the morning or in the afternoon:
According to your needs you can either attend the morning class, from 8:50 am – 1 pm, or the afternoon class, from 1:30 pm – 5:45 pm.

Prior to course start participants will complete a free placement test in order to assess their individual knowledge and to place them adequately.
