German for exchange students at ZHAW

If you want to gain confidence in your written and oral German communication skills, why not join other students from around the world in a lively and communicative foreign language classroom?

Guided by our motivated and experienced instructors, you can practise communication skills and naturally acquire the vocabulary and grammar needed to competently deal with everyday situations. We provide up-to-date listening and reading material to help you become more familiar with your German-speaking environment. Developing independent learning strategies also makes up an important part of the course as they will enable you to broaden and deepen your knowledge of the local language and culture on your own.
