In all our courses we are taking you from a real beginner level up to the C1 / TestDaF standard. As we are also a test centre for the TELC and the TestDaF, you can prepare for and sit the exam here, too.
Intensive 20 courses (20 class hours per week) for levels A1, A2, and B1
Our Intensive 20 courses run for five days a week from 02.00 to 05.15 p.m. (A1) and from 09.30 to 12.45 p.m. (A2 and B1); that’s 20 class hours of 45 min. each per week. We are taking you through a complete level in 8 weeks, i.e. 160 hrs. Classes are small, communicative and fun!
You and up to 9, sometimes 10 other students are going through all the motions: vocabulary, grammar and phonetics – and most of all, communication! After all that’s what you need: being able to interact with each other in German.
Intensive 25 courses (25 class hours per week) for levels B2 and C1
In our intensive 25 courses we teach the German language on five days per week from 09.30 to 01.00 p.m.; that’s 25 class hours of 45 mins. each per week. We are taking you through a complete intermediate to advanced level in 8 weeks, in this case adding up to 200 hrs. The reason we teach these levels more intensively than the A1 to B1 courses is that they are more complex and need more time to digest – after all, you decided to learn German to be able to understand and speak it, and not to be rushed through a book. Our small groups with a lot of interaction between the students are fun and effective.
Evening German courses (4 class hours per week) for all levels
Our evening classes are perfect for people staying in Hamburg who can spare the time after work or studies to improve their knowledge of German. Courses run for two evenings per week on Mondays and Wednesdays or on Tuesdays and Thursdays either from 06.00 to 07.30 p.m. or from 07.30 to 09.00 p.m. at all levels! One complete course of 15 weeks, i.e. 30 evenings or 60 class hours covers half a level, so in two courses you can do a complete level, such as A1, A2, B1, B2, or C1!
Learning in small groups is essential for extensive courses like these. We offer standard German and specialized courses for business purposes.
Individual German lessons for all purposes
We also teach you in individual ‘one-to-one’ lessons. This is especially good for people with a very narrow or flexible timetable, for professionals who need extra assistance in their jobs and for expatriates who need a boost in a shorter time. We can arrange sessions at the school, at your workplace and even at your home!
