Intensive German courses

The Welcome Center offers intensive German courses for all international (visiting) doctoral students and researchers of the University of Bamberg as well as their partners. During the winter semester 2019/2020, three courses for German language learners are being offered.

Intensive German Language course for beginners (with little or no knowledge of German)

In this intensive German language course for beginners, you will acquire a basic knowledge of the academic and colloquial use of the German language which will enable you to manage your private and everyday life at the university.

This course is designed to provide you with a basic vocabulary and understanding of grammatical structures. With a focus on communication, you will be guided and accompanied by an experienced and competent teacher. In a pleasant learning atmosphere, you will be able to establish and improve your German language skills.

Please note: If you have already visited this course in the previous semesters, but you would still like to join it, you might consider joining the class, for instance, one month later, since in the first 3-4 sessions the most basic topics will be covered which you might already be familiar with.
