University Preparation Course (24 lessons per week)
Our University Preparation Course prepares participants for the TestDaF and DSH university entrance language examinations. The course comprises a basic module (beginners) and an advanced module (non-beginners). The basic module lasts 24 weeks and works through levels A1, A2 and B1. The advanced module continues at level B2 and lasts 12 weeks.
The language teaching is geared right from the start to meeting the university entrance examination requirements and to providing you with the language skills you will need during your university studies. You work in small groups with a maximum of 12 participants and not only familiarize yourself with grammar and everyday communication but also, from a very early stage, learn how to work with written texts, to produce written work on specific topics, to understand lengthy and complex listening texts and take notes from them, etc.
The basic and advanced modules each have 24 lessons per week; the total course lasts 36 weeks, which is 864 lessons in total. You can also take part in our free learning support and homework supervision in the afternoons.

Lessons have a clear structure and are oriented towards the European Reference Framework. Modern media, up-to-date course material and the combination of text and vocabulary work, grammar, phonetics and conversation make effective learning possible.
The classes are small and made up of people from various countries, and emphasis is always on the practical use of language, i.e. on the participants’ ability to speak and understand. Each group is taught by two tutors, and the most important thing is that from the very first lesson, the teaching language is German.
