German for ZHdK students

Ready for life on and off Campus at Zurich

If you wish to gain confidence in your German oral or written communication skills during your stay in Zurich, why not join other students from around the world in a lively and communicative foreign language classroom? Guided by motivated and experienced instructors from the Language Competence Centre of the ZHAW you can practise communication skills, naturally acquiring the vocabulary and grammar needed to deal competently 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.

The courses «Ready for Life On and Off Campus in Zurich» will be held on the ZHdK campus starting in February 2019.
