Study Programme

The interactive online language course is delivered by experienced German teachers. In small groups you can deepen and expand your oral and written German skills with the help of multiple conversation exercises, up-to-date listening and reading texts and modern grammar tasks.

Drop into one of the seminar rooms to learn more about the German culture, take part in one of the interactive workshops or create your own project on our learning platform under the supervision of a professional teacher.

Many sessions are closely linked, so you can practise the newly learned skills with your teacher during your next class. Due to intensive training, you will be able to make quick progress in German language learning.


Accompanying Programme

Our virtual free time programme enables students to experience international encounters and engage with other participants from all over the world. Take a walk around Freiburg with us and take part in a Freiburg quiz together with other participants. Make friends during our live “networking sessions” or take a trip to the Black forest. Simply enjoy the diversity!
