Our intensive courses

Intensive course A1.1

Scope and content: 100 taught credit hours of reading, listening, speaking, writing, grammar and cultural studies at A1.1 level (CEFR).

Description: This intensive language course is aimed at learners with little to no previous knowledge of German. It serves as an introduction to the elementary use of German. Participants learn to communicate in German in a simple way so that they can settle in and find their way around as quickly as possible, especially at the university. In doing so, great emphasis is placed on communicating about everyday cultural topics.

Intensive course B2.1

Scope and content: 100 taught credit hours of reading, listening, speaking, writing, grammar and cultural studies at B2.1 level (CEFR).

Please note that this intensive course always takes place already in February and August.

Description This general German course builds on knowledge gained at level B1 and serves to consolidate and expand the independent use of German. The course is based on complex written and oral texts. In the area of linguistic production, participants learn to communicate spontaneously and fluently and to express themselves clearly and in detail on a wide range of topics. This includes explaining a point of view on a current issue and identifying the advantages and disadvantages of different options. Grammar skills are also developed throughout the course.

Intensive course B2.2

Scope and content: 100 taught credit hours of reading, listening, speaking, writing, grammar and cultural studies at B2.2 level (CEFR).


Please note that each course only covers half of the respective CEFR level. During the semester, you have the opportunity to attend courses at all levels.

The German courses are part of the INSTEP Study support. For more information please go to the website of the International Office.
