Why do we need professional courses

Head area

In the level courses you practice all skills - reading, listening, speaking and writing - and reach the next level of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) in one semester. At the end of the semester you document your knowledge with the ZHAW level test or take a Goethe exam.

In the specialty courses, you will work on the skills that are important to you: writing, communication, reading, pronunciation. Decide for yourself what you want to learn.

Would you like to practice your German language skills in a motivated study group regardless of location? Then our online courses are right for you. Lessons in the digital classroom, individual support and independent learning phases ensure rapid learning success in these courses.

We specifically select our course materials in all courses and work with modern teaching methods. On our online learning platform, additional exercise material for independent learning is available in every course.
