German as a Foreign Language
This is what we offer for international students of the university who would like to improve their German language skills.
Intensive Courses prior to the Start of the Semester
German Courses During the Semester
Workshops for International Students
Speaking German, having fun, getting to know students from all over the world and learning more about German culture at the same time - that's the Language café or Sprachcafé. Here, German and international students have the opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and speak German outside of a language course in a relaxed atmosphere and without stress.
During the semester, we meet up every Monday from 5.30pm - 7pm in der Hütte/Students Hut by ekhg (Pestalozzistr. 52). Come by - we look forward to seeing you!
What is so foreign about other cultures, and how do we Germans actually come across to others? How do misunderstandings arise and how do we deal with them? How does cooperation work in international teams? How do I apply for a job in Germany? Our workshops and projects on intercultural communication are centred around questions along these lines.
Thank you for the opportunity to study German and the perfect teachers we had! Thanks to them, I now love studying German and communicating in everyday siutations.
The intensive course was such a good way to learn German and at the same time introduce myself to the university and meet people. Thank you so much!
I am glad that the university offers intensive courses because this allows international students to meet and that is really great! The teachers are nice, and we worked in a great atmosphere and learned so many things! The excursions were interesting and fun; we had a great time during these two weeks.
I would like to thank you for your great offers! I got a nice tandem during my studies. Thank you also for the competent writing advice during my Bachelor's and Master's thesis. It has brought me a lot further!

The language café was super fun in the nice atmosphere. Besides the opportunity to meet new people, we also gained valuable knowledge about German culture and tried out some delicious German cuisine! Thank you very much for your organisation, the exciting games and the great snacks.
