Our flexible course programme offers the most suitable German course for your personal needs. You study standard German in small international study groups and profit from full cultural immersion.

Our methods

The basic programme provides intensive coaching in grammar, sentence structure and vocabulary. Reading and listening comprehension, as well as written exercises, are important components of our courses. One of our basic principles is to ensure a maximum of oral communication. You are encouraged to practice your spoken German with your teacher and with your classmates.

Our teachers

Our teachers see themselves as your friends and partners. They are native speakers of standard German and take genuine pleasure in working with you. They are highly qualified and regularly attend training courses held by ActiLingua. Each group is taught by two (Standard Course) or three (Intensive Course) teachers a day in order to ensure more varied and stimulating instruction. Participants profit from different styles of teaching, teacher personalities and variations in pronunciation of modern German.
