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.
