Depending on your prior knowledge and course requirements, you can choose between 2 different levels. Level "A1" will focus on basic grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation and can also serve as a memory refresher. "A2" will help you understand more complex texts and utilise specialised terminology.
Both courses consist of 80 hours per semester. The course for the winter semester is scheduled for July and August, the course for the summer semester takes place in December and January, allowing you to develop your German language skills right in time for the start of your studies. Due to the current COVID situation, these courses will be held online with interactive group learning, together with other students from around the world. An official examination is part of this course.
Important note: The number of participants for the online German course is limited to 25 in both A1 and A2. Therefore, registration is only possible for one course. After the registration deadline, all selected participants will receive an invitation and the course dates (course start date, zoom login details, and information about the exam) for the respective online German course.
