Language Course English

English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Turkish, Danish, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Latin and many other languages... at all skill levels and with one-on-one or group teaching.

We rely on a team of language teachers consisting of native speakers who have undergone the best educational training to teach you the language of your choice in an authentic and realistic manner. Our language courses are based on both classic, well-established media (e.g. books and role-play) and interactive digital media and always involve being taught in small groups of 3-5 participants. This enables us to individually support and promote every single course participant.

Our courses are tailored to suit your needs and requirements and make use of practical and authentic teaching material that factor in your interests. We consider your motivation to be an important aspect of learning. Therefore, before you join a course, there is an in-depth consultation session with our placement officer and a language level test so that a course programme can be tailored to suit the requirements of every group of learners and to work together with you to define your learning targets. Regular 'checks' enable you to track your progress throughout the duration of your course.

We also attach special importance to providing our course participants with intercultural know-how. Mastering a language is not the only requirement needed to achieve successful communication. This is why our language teachers also provide you with the cultural features and characteristics of the region concerned, for example its way of life, forms of address, what faux pas not to commit.

We offer you courses in all European languages and many other languages involving one-on-one or group teaching at all skill levels. Our programme also contains job-related courses, high impact courses and certification courses.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Student Hotline by calling +49 (0)6104 408710. We will be happy to help you.

  • Our language courses are available for all skill levels: beginners, basic level, intermediate level and advanced level.

  • They are suitable for general learning targets, job-related learning and certification.

  • You can start the courses whenever you wish.

  • The language training is provided in the target language that you are aiming to learn, but our language teachers can, of course, also speak German.

  • Lesson times for each language course can be arranged within the following hours by individual arrangement:

    Mon - Fri: 7:30am - 9:30pm

    Sat: 8:00am - 2:00pm

English is the most widely used language in the world. It is not only the official language of over 50 countries but is also the first foreign language to be taught in a large number of non-Anglophone regions. It therefore comes as no surprise that English is a particularly valuable lingua franca for tourists and travellers. Above all, however, English is becoming increasingly present as the most important language used in the globalised economy. It is also now an indispensable part of day-to-day life here in the German-speaking world, for example due to the abundance of Anglicism in our language. Alongside the benefits it brings in everyday life or when used in the business world, mastering the English language will also enable you to get involved in world culture to an extent that is barely possible with any other foreign language.

We offer the following courses:

It will enable you to perform successfully in front of an international audience.

Speech Preparation

This course is specifically tailored to suit individuals who want to make a speech in a foreign language. We help participants polish up the linguistic aspects of their speech before recording it on camera and then analysing it from a variety of different angles. We also discuss potential questions from the audience and practice answering these questions together with participants.

Social Contact in the Business World / Small Talk

This course will help to improve your competence where social contact with an international audience is concerned. It uses typical situations taken from the everyday working lives of business travellers and individuals who have contact with international visitors or work in an international environment to provide practical teaching of the course content. Make the most of this special task-based foreign language training to improve your intercultural competence when professionally dealing with international contacts.

Special Courses for Children

Learning a foreign language can open up a whole new world for your children. A foreign language will not only help them to access a new culture and achieve even more success in their future careers, but also provide synergistic effects that will aid their acquisition of their native language. One of the most important aims of our courses for children is to provide them with fun learning activities in a playful and happy setting. We offer language courses in English, French, Spanish and Italian for children aged between 8 and 13 years old.

  • Increase your children's self-confidence

  • Expand your children's horizons by enabling them to access a new language culture

  • Give your children a head start for their future careers

  • Help your children to improve their school marks

Our children's language courses are specially tailored to suit the needs of young school pupils by teaching them in a fun educational manner. As is also the case with our other courses, our children's language courses are provided by native speakers with competent educational training who not only teach children a new language, but also give them the intercultural knowledge required to access other cultures. We want to support your child's natural curiosity. As can be expected on the basis of our other courses, we also provide optimal support for participants in our children's language courses by using both well-established materials (e.g. children's textbooks and role-play activities) and modern interactive media (e.g. Smart Boards and computers) and working in small groups.
