Learning alone is boring! With groups between 8 and 13 students, our online courses are the perfect opportunity to learn German affordably from the comfort of your own home. Through our animated and communication-oriented lessons, you will practice your reading, writing, speaking, listening and grammar skills. We offer courses for all language levels, from A1 to C2, at various times of the day. To take part in our online courses, you simply need a PC or a smartphone, a webcam and, of course, an internet connection. The lessons take place over Zoom, a professional piece of software that allows for high-quality video chats and excels in offering a stable connection for its users. Our course book for the early levels, ‘Wolkenkratzer’, is also available for you online free-of-charge.
New online courses (and new face-to-face courses) in July!
Start date: 6 July 2020
New online courses are starting again in July. On top of this, Zentrum will also be offering new face-to-face courses. In August we will be offering face-to-face classes in the evening again for the first time since the school closed (see ZDSK Zentrum für deutsche Sprache und Kultur).
* Course books are not included in the price. The course book for A1, A2 and B1 ‘Wolkenkratzer’ is also available online free-of-charge. For B2 and C1 the digital version from ‘Aspekte neu’ can be purchased online. The printed version of 'Aspekte neu' can be bought in a bookshop, and the printed version of both 'Wolkenkratzer' and 'Aspekte neu' can be bought at the school.
The prices of the courses are the same regardless of language level.
After registering, you will receive a registration confirmation and a payment request via e-mail. After receiving the course fee we will send an invitation to the virtual classroom.
