Learn German for your everyday life, work and studies
At the ZHAW Institute of Language Competence, you can learn German from levels A2 to C2+, which enables you to communicate independently and competently in German in your studies, work and everyday life. Through close cooperation between research, teaching and the Goethe Examination Centre, we can fully support you in achieving your goals. Our many years of experience as an examination centre of the Goethe-Institut also guarantees the best possible preparation for Goethe certificates from levels A1 to C2.
The new courses for the spring semester 2020 starting on 9 March are online.
German courses A2 – C2+
In the regular courses, you practice all skills — reading, listening, speaking and writing — and reach the next level of the CEF (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) in one semester. At the end of the semester, you can demonstrate your improved knowledge with the ZHAW level test or take a Goethe exam.
In the special courses, you will work on the skills that are important to you: writing, communication, reading, pronunciation. You decide what you want to learn.
We carefully select teaching materials and use specific digital media to offer you additional learning possibilities.
