Institute for Foreign Languages

Are you an international student, planning to come to study at Reutlingen University and wanting to prepare yourself, or are you already here and wish to learn German during your studies here?
Or are you a German student who would like to brush up your foreign language skills and so improve your chances on the labour market? Would you like to prepare yourself both linguistically and culturally for a semester abroad? Would you like to improve your language skills by working together with a tandem partner?

The Institute for Foreign Languages, which is part of Reutlingen International Office (RIO), offers courses in ten languages, as well as a range of workshops - in German and in English - dealing with various aspects of intercultural competence and learning strategies. These courses and workshops are open to all domestic and international students at Reutlingen University.

Information for the winter semester:

Due to the Corona crisis, our courses and workshops will be offered in various formats - classroom, online or hybrid courses - in the winter semester.
All classroom sessions will be conducted in compliance with Reutlingen University’s hygiene concept.
Please note that we will react to current developments throughout the Corona crisis and, if necessary, continue all courses online. Current information from the University Management Team can be found here.
